The dating games that may have worked wonders for you in college don’t have a place in the quest for a mature adult relationship. A true gentleman (and Man of Style) knows that when it comes to dating, that tradition and etiquette are the best places to start – with a modern twist of course! Having an air of old-school class is what will set you apart from the other fish in the sea.
First and Foremost Be a Gentleman
If you follow one rule at all, let it be this one. It’s simple. Have good manners, and be kind. Be punctual, don’t swear, hold ALL the doors, pay for the meal, and remember “Ladies First”. Holding the door doesn’t mean you perceive females as the weaker sex. It shows you want them to feel special. Finally, remember to keep your cell phone away and keep your focus on your date. This strategy will go a long way with any woman.
Be Confident, But Not Too Confident
There is nothing more unattractive than a man who spends the entire date talking about how great he is. On the flip side, a man who exudes insecurity will likely be written off as well. It is important to find a healthy balance that will let your date know your best qualities without coming off as bragging and allow you to discover her best qualities as well.

Be a Man of Style
An overwhelming majority of women think men who dress well are more attractive. A man’s sense of style is ranked as one of the top 10 traits women want in a man. In fact , 0% of women said that taste in clothing can be a dating deal breaker! There is a saying “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” This phrase might be applied to dating as well. “Dress for the type of woman you wish to attract.”
