Last year, in and around November (if you want to check the archives), I posted a series of links and articles that pertained to etiquette for today's gentlemen. There were the etiquette rules of dating, dinner dates, general how-to-behave tips, and from the feedback I've been getting, it appears a lot of you enjoyed those posts. Women like them so they can 'groom' their men; writers like them so they can write more wholesome heroes; men (yes, I swear I've had a few male friends contact me over these!) like them for the tips and pointers they can apply in real life, and to, (sadly) be a hit with women...
In light of this popularity factor, I went looking for more articles in the same vein. Once again, Esquire.com has proved to be a treasure trove of information.
The link I feature today is self-explicit. Written by the editors of Marie Claire, every tidbit on here is spot-on!
Read on for an eye-opener! You can access the original article here.
Things a Man Should Never Do in the Company of a Woman
By The Editors of Marie Claire
Reveal how much your car cost.
Clean your gun.
Polish high school trophies (which you still have displayed).
Refer to your mother as your best friend.
Check out our assistant/roommate/the baby-sitter.
Question our footwear.
Blow-dry your hair.
Tip less than 20 percent.
Impressions of us.
Forget to carry cash.
Flip it, flop it, swing it around, tug on it, adjust it, scratch it, or do anything that will remind us that it's just a goofy appendage and not a mystical source of pleasure and satisfaction.
Boot and rally.
Scream -- at the dog, at the guy who just stole your parking spot, at Eli Manning. Because, no matter how much Eli deserves it (picked off again!), when we hear you raise your voice, we have an idea of what we're in for.
Talk about former exploits. Ever.
Use the words bitch, slut, tramp, or whore, unless referring to another man.
Stick anything in our butts, unless previous discussions have occurred.
Tell us you're going to kiss us. (Just get on with it!)
From Mauritius with love,
