7 Tips on How to be a True Gentleman on a First Date from Carolyn Washington's blog

On a first date, it's important to show the other person that you're a true gentleman. Below are seven tips on how to do just that:

1. Be on time. This is the most basic rule of etiquette, and it's especially important on a first date. If you're running late, let your date know as soon as possible.

2. Dress appropriately. You don't need to wear a suit and tie (or a dress and high heels), but make sure you're dressed neatly and in clothing that's appropriate for the occasion.

3. Respect your date. Don't talk about your exes or rant about politics or religion. Listen to what your date has to say, and be respectful of their opinions.

4. Be considerate. Open doors for your date, offer them your seat, and pay for the meal or drinks. These small gestures can make a big impression.

5. Be chivalrous. If your date needs help with something, offer to help out. If they drop something, pick it up for them. Chivalry isn't dead!

6. Avoid negative body language. Slouching, rolling your eyes, or checking your phone constantly sends the wrong message to your date. Make an effort to be engaged and interested in what they have to say.

7. Don't overdo it. There's a fine line between being a gentleman and acting like a stalker! Make sure you're not crossing any boundaries - always respect your date's personal space."
