Hi blog-lovers, we all know that the world is starved of nice guys. So what can we do to change that? All get pregnant and raise nice boys? Yes, that’s the plan.
So I have compiled this ‘guide’ on how to raise a gentleman. Learn.
Tell him he’s great, but nothing special. Not in a mean way, just in a realistic way, so that he doesn’t start to believe he’s a gift to all womankind.
Teach him that Abercrombie and Fitch is evil.
Teach him that poetry is good.
Keep your guitar locked away and only let him join bands as drummer or tambourine player.
Give him your old LP’s and a record player.
Teach him that dancing, even silly dancing, is nothing embarrassing. Especially not dancing to Jason DeRulo.
Don’t send him to a public school, but try not to send him to a ghetto school either.
Teach him that the way to a woman’s heart is not bringing flowers on the first date, but bringing a cupcake or a book for her to read and discuss with him afterwards.
Go hiking with him and talk about girls. And emotions. Shock. Horror.
