Relationships and dating are not like in the old times anymore. Everything is much more relaxed. Rules and boundaries are a little less defined. As a result, it gave us these modern versions of dating. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying any of it is wrong. But let’s face it, a fair share of women still wish they can date gentlemen. That type of gentlemen that is less and less common these days. If you are one of those women, you might want to date a man who does these six things.
Date a man who really listens to you when you talk.
It matters if your date is actually hearing words coming out of your mouth. We all know those times when you get so excited and nervous, it causes you to start prattling. We also know that it might not be the easiest thing to pay attention to that, but it would be nice if he would be at least polite enough to give us a few nods and some eye contact. Some things that will let you know if he’s actually listening is if he asks questions or mentions something you said. If you notice him checking his social media instead, it is obvious he is completely uninterested and that is a big no.
Date a man who makes sure you arrived home safe.
When your night together is finished, it would be nice of your date to get you home either by driving you, walking you home, or sharing the cab with you. If he is unable to do that, it is expected to at least receive a heartwarming text message from him. The one where he is checking if everything went well and you got home safe. It requires no effort.
Date a man who doesn’t talk down to you.
This one should actually be a universal rule in life. Do not let anyone talk down to you, but especially not the man you’re dating. If he is making you feel stupid or like you can’t say anything worth hearing, it is a bad sign. The man you are with should be making you feel like a million dollars. If he thinks he is superior to you or any other woman, it is time you kick him to the curb.
Date a man who offers to pay.
This is not to say that he has to pay for you or that it is his responsibility. It doesn’t even have to happen if you don’t feel comfortable with it. What matters is did he offer? If he expressed readiness to pay for the dinner or movie tickets and popcorn, it is a good sign. It is to show you he is ready to do anything to make that date a memorable one, where you did not have to do anything except enjoy yourself.
Date a man who plans the date.
If he invites you on a date and then tells you to think of an idea without even trying, that is not very befitting of a gentleman. A true gentleman will invite you on a well planned out date. The only thing that will be left for you to decide will be when does the date take place. It is also a very good sign when he invests his own time to plan out something just for you two, because you are worthy of it.
Date a man who shows up on time.
Time is of essence, especially when it comes to us girls getting ready for something as special as a date with a man we really like. Now, this here is another thing that actually applies to anyone in your life. If you have an agreement to meet at a certain time and they leave you to wait, it is a sign of disrespect. Especially if it is from the man you are dating and after you’ve spent so much time getting ready for him. Your time is valuable, do not waste it on someone who did not deserve it!
Remember, if it’s a gentleman you’re looking for, date a man who does all of these things.
