How to Be A Southern Gentleman Posted by: Aaron Stearns | 8 Comments
Listen up, boys. In today’s society, many niceties have been stripped away. But down here in the South, we Southern women still have high expectations. So, if you want to be the perfect Southern Gentleman and impress us, here are some pointers to not only be a Southern Gentleman below the Mason-Dixon, but also if you happen to find yourself above it.
• Always open the door for a lady of any age.
• Insert “Yes, M’am” or “Yes, Sir” in the place of “Yes, yeah, okay, uh-huh, sure,” etc.
• Take off your hat when coming indoors. This includes ballcaps.
• When getting in a car, open the door for the lady first.
• When in church, at a meal, or in a group, continue standing until the women with you have sat first.
• Wait to eat until all of the plates have been set on the table, and the ladies have taken the first bite.
• Don’t ask a lady her age. Ever.
• Say grace before every meal. No exceptions.
