The Door Matters
I’ve talked about this before as well But I Felt Like I haven’t Done justice to it. So Yeah, What Do you think about Doors? I mean, Should you be Holding Doors for Others? Is it one of those Royal and Modern Manners that a Gentleman must-have?
Well, The answer is Yes and No. Basically it all about Adapting to the Situation. Let’s Just say you are with someone who is Elder than You. Maybe you’ve gone outside with your Father, Mother, or Someone who is at a Respectable Level near You. Or Let’s just say you’ve gone out to eat with your loved one, your better half.
Now in the above-mentioned situations, It would be better if you Hold doors and Let your companion go first by using words like, “After you”, “This Way Please”. It shows that You care about their existence and Most importantly you respect them.
However, If you are with your Buddies or Colloquies or Someone who is Younger than You, It is meaningless to Hold Doors. I mean, Why would you Hold doors for your Friends? It looks weird. Isn’t it? You do this sarcastically only when you are with your friends. And it makes no sense at all when you are with somebody younger than You. So Don’t do it. You should, however, Never close Doors on somebody’s face. Hold the Door until the person coming next to you Holds it. Yeah, there you Go. I am so Proud of you My Boy!
Take Care of your Hygiene
What comes into your Mind When I use words like Etiquettes and Manners? Royalism? Being a Badass Gentleman? Walking on the Road with a Stick in your hand and Suit on your Body? Well, that’s what Movies have Shown us and there is nothing wrong with that. But Being a Gentleman starts with something as little as taking care of your Hygiene.
Look at your Nails, They are surely not to the best looking, Polished, and Perfectly Filed nails. Right? Why are they Not? Can’t you just buy a pair of Nail Grooming Kit to Groom your Nails? How much time will it take? It takes Less than 10 Minutes and You are Done with your Nails Looking 10/10.
What about your Hands and those Cracked heeled feet? Can’t you use a Pair of Pumice Stone and Some exfoliating Cream to Take care of the Later and Just some basic Body wash and Moisturiser combo to make the Former Look Good? It’s super easy to do and takes almost no time at all. Below is a list of Things that A Man should Do to Become the Most Hygienic, aka, Most Naturally Attractive Gentleman in the Room.
✌️ Never go out with Smelly Armpits that aren’t Shaved. Always Use a Deodorant.
✌️ Your Teeth, they get noticed too, A Lot actually! Brush them regularly and Floss daily as well.
✌️ Take care of your Nose Hair, Use a Nose Trimmer to Make them not come out of your Nose making you Look like a Beast
✌️ No one wants to Sit with a Gentleman that has All the Modern Manners and Etiquettes in the world But has Bad breath. So Take care of that in the First Place before even trying to make an Impression.
✌️ Shower Daily. You Must!
✌️ Clip your Nails on the Regular Basis and As I told you before as well, Use Nail File to Give that Shine and Maybe Apply some Vaseline to add that Sexy Shine to your Sweet looking Nails (once in a while). Perfect!
✌️ Take care of your Body hair. Chest and Back hair Need your attention. Remove the Later and Play with the Former the way you want. Trimmed is the best, in my opinion.
✌️ Use a Good Cologne. Check out The Only 15 Fragrance Tips a Guy Would Ever Need! for More.
Value YOUR and OTHER People’s Time
One of the Manners and Rules that You can See your Parent Generation Seem to Obey the Most is “Arriving on Time”. Is it because they have nothing to do? No! This isn’t the case. It’s about Discipline, my Friend. It’s all about the Care that you have for someone else’s time. I Mean, the person who you’ve given a Specific time could be waiting for you and there you are Sitting somewhere Else, not even worried about the fact that you are late already.
This Kind of Behaviour needs a Change. Alright, So you see Men talking about this on various platforms that They can’t help it. They are like, “Coming on time is Just Like Impossible for Me”. But Why? Can’t you come on time to that Morning Class which You Would have come if You had woke Up early which could have happened if you’ve slept early the night before?
Look at yourself, my friend. You have removed Gems like Discipline, Principles, Etiquettes, from your Personality and Now you are expecting to accomplish great things? You can’t do that. To Become a Gentlemen in this Modern world you need to Have some Modern Modern Manners in your character. You need to have some Classy Manners in order to have that Extreme class in your Personality. And among those Classy manners comes, “Discipline and Arriving on Time” in the top 5 List. So are you ready to indulge in Discipline in your Life?
Put That Phone Away
Please Don’t think of me as a Boomer who wants you to do everything that your parents want you to do. I am just trying to state some facts which Millennials should Do in order to Become Modern-day Gentlemen.
Look, there is nothing bad in using your Phone when you are sitting somewhere, not talking to anyone else in person. But why would you not put your Phone down While Driving or when someone is talking to you? Or maybe when you are walking by the Street? Do you want the truck to hit you?
In the Former cases, You can get into some serious conditions, an accident maybe, if you won’t put your phone down. And Not to mention it is a great Disrespect for anybody if you are Using your Phone instead of Paying attention to what they are saying.
Be Nice to Everybody
This is Probably the Most Talked about, Yet one of the things that people forget most of the time. Why can’t you just be Nice with People instead of Playing games to get things Done? I mean, You can be Nice and Influence people with that Only, Doing nothing Else.

But always remember to Be real. Don’t just fake Being Nice to trick somebody into doing things that you want them to do.
Be Genuinely Nice My Friend. It shows up.”Being Nice will eat you Up”, “When you Be Nice to people, they start taking you for granted”. Are these your Concerns? Well, this is yet another Dimension to this Story and I do believe that this Needs to be discussed, But in another Article dedicated Just to the topic, “How to be Nice Meanwhile assuring that Nobody uses you during the Process”.
But for the sake of this Article, Just remember to Never treat People Poorly and I know for sure that Good things will happen to you in the Upcoming Future.
Basic Electronic Etiquettes
Brothers! This is something that I personally Hate a lot and will never recommend any of you to do. I’ve been using this term again and again, “Modern-Day Gentleman Needs to have Modern Manners” and there is a reason behind it. We have Modern Problems Now that we didn’t have before. You can either choose to face that problem Gentleman or you can close your eyes and Start Ignoring others until they get dishearted and Stop calling you. Below is a List of Manners and Etiquettes related to Calling.
🙏 So You are Calling Somebody and He isn’t answering. But you keep calling Him again and again and again. You are getting Mad Now. Oh. What If he isn’t actually you? If he is actually busy at the moment? Why can’t you think about it this way?
🙏 Call/Text them once or twice and wait for them to answer. If they don’t. Stop calling them and wait for them to reach out to you.
🙏 And If you are someone who isn’t Picking up the Call, then Please at least let the other person know that you are Busy or whatever. Don’t make them Go Mad and Please Don’t Waste someone’s Time.
🙏 If you’ve promised someone regarding something and you’ve failed to complete your Promise then Just say it to them after answering their Call. Ignoring and Not replying to them isn’t the right thing to do
Personal Space Etiquettes
Personal Space can be divided into Two Parts. The first one, The Physical Personal Space. And this has been around for years, whether we are talking about Modern Manners or Classic-Evergreen Etiquettes. People Do care about this and there are just a few of Us who Stand too close to somebody.
Guys! That’s very Creepy. And if someone has told you that doing this is gonna make you look attractive, then sorry to say But you’ve been tricked.
Do You Know About: 14 Things Guys Do Unknowingly that Make them So Damn Attractive?
And now comes the real Deal, the Second part of the “Personal Space Etiquettes”. Brothers! Why Would you not let them Enjoy their, “Me” Time? I mean, You Know that there are times when you want to Spend time with nobody else but yourself only.
These are some of the most important moments for anyone as you Grow because of that. You become mentally Strong, You think about stuff that you can’t think about when there are a whole bunch of people around you. In short, We all need some time alone and Then comes Yourself, bothering somebody, to Not spend all the time with you.
WOW! I mean, Why would you do that? How can you be mad at somebody who is asking for something which is included in his/her basic rights? Give them their “ME” Time and don’t force them to Kill their Productivity Hours to Spend time with you. It is a very mean thing to do. I Don’t know about the Ancient Book of Etiquettes But Modern Manners consider this almost a Sin that You should never commit.
Have No Expectations
Never, Ever, Make others Feel Low By giving them Your Money or By Helping Somebody and then raising that topic again and again. Look, I know that you love to mention you’re Good deeds in front of people and maybe you are Doing it just to inspire others. But It isn’t the right thing to do. I mean, the person who you helped is standing next to you and there you are sitting talking about How you helped Him in getting out of some specific situation.
This is Bad. What? You expect back from Him Now and for that reason, you are raising that topic again? Man! This is the worst thing that you can Do. Hey! Do things not to get back favors from others. Do it just because you had to because you are a nice person. Trust Me! You demanding it back takes it all away from you.
You don’t have to make somebody your Slave by helping them Financially or by any other means. Respect them and Just forget what you did once for that somebody. Do that and good things will come to you automatically. Even if they don’t, At least you will have a feeling of accomplishment when you will think about yourself in the future. You should be proud of yourself for not doing things to get a Benefit in return, especially in this world full of Fake People who do things just to get something In return.
Modern Traffic Needs Modern Manners? Well, Partially Yes and a Dominating No. Alright, So Below is a List of Etiquettes and Manners that You Should Have in Order to Be the Most Gentlemen-Line while being on the road.
🚙 Over Speeding is Never the Most Classy Option. Doing that will Only bring You Damage and No! Over Speeding and Stunt Driving will Not make you any attractive (According to Most Girls)
🚙 Look at your Mirrors, Right and Left Both. Keep Some Distance while crossing or overtaking.
🚙 Never take Someone else’s Parking Space. Yeah, I am talking about the situation where someone else was just about to park and you put some extra force on the Peddle to take his place. No, Don’t do that.
🚙 If You get to know about the fact that there is some sort of Construction Going on ahead then Let others Know about it as well. Don’t let them Go through 1 KM Drive to Find out that they just wasted their Gas only by going forward on that Route.
🚙 You are Gonna See Many A$$Holes on the Road. The better option is to Drive Safely and Ignore them. Do not Abuse anyone, no matter How irresponsibly they are Driving. Wardon is there and He will deal with them. Just focus on yourself and Your Drive only.
🚙 Do Not try to Impress somebody by Driving fast as if you are some Formula 1 Racer. You are not and No there is No track. Your Actions may result in an accident. And that isn’t Cool and certainly Not the Most Swaggy Incident. Right?
Friendship Related Manners

You Thought You don’t have a Set of Rules when it comes to Hard times? Oh Boy! A True Gentlemen Stays Calm No Matter what! Hard times Come and Go but One thing is for sure, These times show you the Different between people Who are strong and those who are not that Strong.
And to be very honest, there is nothing bad in being the Both. In-fact we all fall down sometimes and for sure there are times when we don’t want to get up. There have been many times in my own life when I decided to quit fighting and Stay Down. But Guess what? Great things don’t happen to you if you surrender. So in respect of that, I’ve assembled a Short List of Etiquettes, Some Modern Manners that a Modern-day Gentleman must posses to Shine bright like a Diamond above all.
🎩 Stay Calm. As Simple as it Sounds, But it is what it is. Staying calm is the Best Possible thing you can do in the Hard times.
🎩 Think about it again. While Staying calm, Note down the Points that You think made the things to go wrong. Use your brain and in order to do that, the first point is very important. Yeah, you heard it right. Stay Calm and try to match the Dots and patterns to make a clear picture in your brain of what could have happened.
🎩 Smile and that will relax you a little bit more. Now dim the Lights, Focus on the Facts and take it like a challenge. Maybe Play with a Fidget Spinner during the thinking process and Think of it as a Mission for yourself. Taking it like that will increase your chances of victory even more.
🎩 Remember that it’s Ok to Lose. The thing that you have to Focus on Instead is “Trying” and “Trying” again. But don’t take Stress of things or else it will affect your physical appearance and Not to mention countless health hazards are also there.
