Host: What is the second deadly dating sin for men?
Gloria McDonald: The second of the seven deadly sins is the sin of ungentlemanly conduct. So again, the woman's looking for chivalry, if the man doesn't pull off the chair for her, open the door for her, walk her to her car. He is just not a gentlemen and this is not someone you would want to take home to your mother.
Believe it or not, while these things might seem a bit archaic, most women still love those gestures. Now, this isn't something you necessarily have to do for the entire rest of your life in a relationship, but guys, you you trying to win her over and these little things, go a long, long way. Had another story of a woman, who -- we introduced her to a man and they were meeting downtown for the first time, right after work, so say 6:30-7 o'clock for drinks. They had a couple of drinks and then she was actually going back to a train, to take a train home.
The place where they met was only about three blocks away from the train station and the man paid for the drinks and everything and then just said goodbye and she was appalled that this man didn't walk her to the train station at 8:30-9 'o clock at night. Now, does this makes sense? Logically? No, because this women worked downtown, she walked to the train station late at night all by herself all the time, but well, this just wasn't gentlemanly conduct. A man who is a gentleman, who is that knight and shining armor who was being chivalrous, would make sure, he's taking of care of this woman. So again guys, if you can do anything to just show her, walk her to her car, open a door for her, be an absolute gentleman, it goes a long, long way.
