#GENTS For the past few years I have looked around me at the state of my own generation and feel nothing but sense of sadness and even disgust. I look at generations past and see men behaving like men, and more specifically, like gentlemen. They respected their parents, their friends, and even total strangers. They dressed properly and spoke properly. They treated women with the utmost regard and they taught their children the same. These days I see guys of my own generation (I’m soon to be 28) frumping about in t-shirts that are three sizes too large with their pants down to their knees. They treat women with little more regard than they did on the playground. What it comes down to is that they have failed to grow up. They’re just lazy.

Thus, a few years ago, I began slowly molding myself into the image of a gentleman. It’s an ongoing process, but from my wardrobe to, most importantly, my respect for others, I am embracing what it means to be man in the 21st century. I am far from perfect, but I try…which is more than I can say for others of my own generation.

----- Max 06.12.10 09:26

#GENTS- My husband did the manliest thing this year by being the greatest and most helpful person for my whole family after the passing of my father. He was the executive assistant everytime the phone rang and we weren’t up to talking and fixing all the little household fixes around the house that my father would’ve done. It still chokes me up when I realize he is the greatest husband in the world.

----- Kathleen 06.12.10 09:26

#GENTS I would guess the most manly/gentlemanly thing I’ve done this year is I bought a proper pair of wingtip boots. Wait … surely I’ve done something more manly …. hmmmm. I guess that accomplishes both manly and gentlemanly in one fell swoop though. OK I’ll leave it at that.

#DELIGHT I bought and actually did wear once my first stilleto shoes.

----- Agnieszka 06.12.10 08:24

#DELIGHT When my lease was up, I left my house in better shape than when I got it. That’s the one thing I learned camping in Girl Scouts: to leave a place in the same or better shape than when you arrived!

----- Deanna 06.12.10 08:23


Well, I grew a beard and began wearing bowties (real ones) and assumed myself as an old-fashioned guy with my jazz and everything.

----- Philibert 06.12.10 08:22

#DELIGHT - I’m learning to be a girl and have (1) learned how to put my hair up in a bun so I don’t look like a ponytailed slob at work (courthouse) and (2) finally bought a dress for dressy events like weddings.

#GENT - I also started shaving with a safety razor, since shaving had been so frustrating for me otherwise, which seems to be more on the manly side of things.

#DELIGHT - I apply ideas I have learned from my parents by having good manners, always being polite and think of others. Social courtesy and consideration can go a long way. Thanks to my parents for teaching me those basics of etiquette!

----- Aurore Fournier 06.12.10 08:04

#DELIGHT This year I stopped drinking! Since it had previously caused me to do not so “ladylike things [peeing in streets, throwing up, yelling at people, making out with randoms etc etc]. Now when I go out I am in full control, fully composed and a proper lady-and still oozes of fun!

----- MandyCakes 06.12.10 07:25

#GENTS I peed standing up while drinking a beer from one hand and firing a crossbow with the other.

----- cole 06.12.10 07:24

#DELIGHT A lady should always be polite, refined, and considerate of others. That’s why this year, I’ve started saying “excuse me” on the subway platforms of New York. It actually works!

----- Charlotte 06.12.10 07:21

I think manners go a long way. Especially in today’s society manners can really make a person stand out. As a lady who likes lady-like things and decorum, I have made a great effort to improve my manners and look forward to that being an ongoing project!

Well, I’m going to a holiday tea in a couple weeks!

----- Ginny 06.12.10 06:58

#DELIGHT I got married! By far and away the girliest and most ladylike I’ve ever been… My hair was pretty, I was wearing a green silk frock with pink petticoats and very high heels. I had make-up and pearl jewellery and painted toenails. I was even wearing a veil, which has to be the epitome of ladylike! In contrast my day-to-day clothing consists of jeans, converse and a t-shirt. I don’t blow dry my hair and I hardly ever wear make-up. I plan on being ladylike again one day, but not for a while - it’s really hard work!

----- Sophie 06.12.10 06:54

#GENTS I’ve been working out… put on 5 lbs. of muscle this year, weighting in at 155 lbs. hoo raw.

----- Erika A. 06.12.10 06:34

My fight delayed for another 2 hours do to weather complications drove me to the sudden urge to explore the densly corwded airport, what was at the time the biggest airport i had ever been in. In desperation of frootless seach in a bar that may have some resembense of mexico, a few more random turns then i made it to a small hispanic looking bar. As i opened the door for a lady behind me, the very young lady, her eyes of the most beautyfull shade of brown topaz and skin ever so slightly sun kissed walked on passed me. As she walks past me in to the bar, our eyes met for just a fraction of time then she dissapired in to the crowd. That night i got waisted, mugged twice as i tried to catch a taxi in foreing language i did’nt know, and slept by a dumpster where i would later that morning wake up to the most lovely sounds of all, a hooker and a hobo having sex across the ally i slept in. On the bright side, i now get to tell my story only hours away from my actual wedding day, my wedding day i so longed for. I am the luckyest man in the world, i get to walk down the ile only to meet that still bright and beautifull lady we once shared a split second that suck with both of us for 15 years until this very day.

----- gio304 06.12.10 06:18

I can’t say that i’ve done anything particularly gentlemanly this year. I think it’s best to continue to be a gentleman all year long. (pulling out chairs, opening doors, offering your jacket to someone colder than you…these things aren’t that hard to do, so why wouldn’t you?)

----- Marshall Cox 06.12.10 06:17

#GENTS Not just manly, I felt I became a man when I went back to a job I didn’t think I could handle mentally anymore, tore down all our miscommunications and drove it toward something positive and securing a better future for me and mine next year. All while breaking in my new jeans no less.

----- William 06.12.10 06:17

----- Rachel Hendrix 06.12.10 06:09

----- brado1977 06.12.10 05:08

#DELIGHT “Ladylike” seems a bit ambiguous and loaded, but I will say that to me, twirling around a parasol that was a birthday gift. I felt very dainty and pretty all summer with its pretty lace! :)

----- Ayla 06.12.10 04:54

#DELIGHT: I jumped from the sartorial word of casual tomboyishness into leggings and dresses.

#DELIGHT I learned how to sew with a machine, to cook a roast and all the fixin’s to entertain my husband’s coworkers, as well as brushing up on my social graces on how to be a good housewife. I daintily pushed back 50 years of feminism with my comment before I demurely beseeched for a Delightful wooden elephant.

----- Hannah 06.12.10 02:15

I became a great deal more ladylike this year. I started wearing dresses & heels a lot. I cut down my cussing to almost nothing. I started cooking and cleaning for my man on a regular basis. If we’re talking traditional definitions of ladylike, I’m most of the way there. #DELIGHT

----- Leona 06.12.10 01:31

#DELIGHT I painted my cell phone with glittery nail polish to show off how girly I am!
