Dictionary.com defines "gentleman" as:
1. a man of good family, breeding, or social position.
2. (used as a polite term) a man: Do you know that gentleman over there?
3. gentlemen, (used as a form of address): Gentlemen, please come this way.
4. a civilized, educated, sensitive, or well-mannered man: He behaved like a true gentleman.
How many true gentlemen are there today? I'm not talking about stuffy, stuck-up arrogant types; I mean someone who regularly exhibits respect for others...especially women? With our "almost anything goes" society these days, it seems to me that gentlemanly behavior stands out like the proverbial "sore thumb." So, how can chivalry be brought back?
According to blogger James Michael Sama:
The more women I talk to, the more I realize that the gentleman is a rare breed. The mission of the New Chivalry Movement is to bring men (and women) together who strive to be the best versions of themselves and love and respect those around them.
As the gentleman has become less prominent, so have the respectful acts that define him.
