A gentleman may not always say or do the right things. He may not always succeed. He might do that by raising a family or starting a business he believes in, but the goal is the same: to make a positive difference. A true gentleman sees the value in life itself.

Sabrina loves to write about love, life, and everything in-between in a candid yet humorous approach. Real men go after what they want. Much like hunters, they will chase after the woman that they want, no matter how hard it may seem. A real man will not give up when there are obstacles in his way. He will do whatever it takes to make the object of his affection interested in him. The first step to doing that is taking action and asking you out on a date. He may be shy, but he's still a man, and a real man takes action and doesn't sit back waiting for things to just happen.
But, how does this all translate into how somebody acts while in a relationship? Is every compliment from him about a different body part? A real man will value your personality, your kindness, your intelligence, and who you are as a person, in general. The things he makes you feel good about will be things that you control, not just results of getting lucky in the gene pool.
The more women I talk to, the more I realize that the gentleman is a rare breed.

As the gentleman has become less prominent, so have the respectful acts that define him.
