Going out to eat
If you go out to eat, make sure that you wait until she has begun eating her food before you launch into yours. And here’s a list of table manners that a proper gentleman displays:
Sit up straight and don’t slump over your food
Elbows off the table
Bring your food to your mouth – not the other way around
Chew with your mouth closed
Avoid talking with your mouth full
And one for the modern man – DO NOT answer the phone or text your friends how well things are going. If you do, guess what, they’re not.
Hopefully by the time you are going out on dates with women you know how to use a knife and fork properly, and if not – take the time to learn.
Whenever the opportunity presents itself to give her the more comfortable seat or resting situation, allow her to have it. Part of being a chivalrous gentleman is doing whatever we can to make our special lady feel comfortable. If you treat her with consideration then she will return the favor.
