Impressing women isn’t as hard as you may think. So what, you’re not a lawyer, or a doctor, or some giant business mogul; that doesn’t mean you can’t come off like the perfect gentleman to the fairer sex. Sure, there will always be gold diggers and those looking solely for an increase in status, just as there will be men who want trophy wives, but for the rest of us normal folk looking for substance in a relationship, being a gentleman can take you a long way.
You don’t have to put on a certain uniform every day to exude class. It’s all about how you carry yourself, how you present yourself to the world, doing whatever it is you happen to be doing at that very moment. Whether you’re at the office, on the job site or simply walking down a city street, pulling off that ‘perfect guy’ look is a lot easier than you might have thought.
So without further ado, here are 7 simple ideas to help you look like Don Draper… rather than Michael Ginsberg!
Put Some Thought Into Your Outfit
You don’t have to dress like Don Draper every day to come across as the perfect gentleman, but you should care about the way you present yourself. You could have all the qualities that any woman would desire, but if you’re in sweatpants and a dirty t-shirt every day, no one will ever get close enough to see those traits. When it comes to fashion, my best advice is to look like you thought about what you were going to wear that morning, and once you put it on, forgot all about it.
Put Some Thought Into What Your Apartment Looks Like
When it comes to your pad’s decor and cleanliness, most women have the bar set pretty damn low. It’s highly likely that they’ve encountered a few showers trimmed with mold and playboy posters used as windows curtains, so when they see your place, make it seem like Heaven in comparison.
Get A Dog (Or Borrow Your Friend’s)
Ladies love cute things. So much so that by proxy, anything near something cute becomes attractive. With that in mind, what’s cuter than a little pup? See where I’m going with this; they call them ‘man’s best friend’ for a reason. When a woman sees you out for a walk or playing catch with your dog, she’ll start thinking about playing catch with you too. Because 1.) the cuteness and 2.) the fact that you can take care of something other than yourself.
Be Good With Children
I’m not suggesting you should go have a kid or something, but because of whatever maternal thing, women seem to find men who are good with children 100 times hotter. Take your nieces or nephews out for ice cream, post some silly pictures on Instagram, and watch the ‘Likes’ pile up.
Know A Little About Wine
Becoming a connoisseur of wine is unnecessary, nor do you have to get a job as a sommelier, but knowing what kind of wine goes with fish (Chardonnay) and what kind of wine goes with goat cheese (Sauvignon blanc) will give an edge. It’s little things like this, that to her, will make it seem like you have a lot of class. When it comes to women, it’s all in the details.
Do Gentlemanly Things
In a world of a texting, poking and online dating, those old fashioned things like opening a car door, or pulling out a chair for your lady friend will make you seem like the guy in the ‘rom com’ movie you were just forced to watch. It won’t take much effort on your part to make these small gestures, and in today’s virtual world where everyone seems to forget these thing, it will make her feel lucky to have found you.
Make Her Feel Like The Perfect Girl
Nothing makes a guy seem more perfect to a girl than understanding who she truly is and telling her exactly that.
