12 Things Every Gentleman Should Know How To Do!
Today I’m doing a post on what every Gentleman should know how to do!
1) ACCEPT ADVICE:
Sometimes its hard to accept advice… We usually believe we are right! Even when we don’t want to hear it, in and circumstance you need to be able to accept it, and digest it!
2) GIVE A COMPLIMENT:
A compliment goes a long way, and is usually a good thing… However, its only a good thing if it’s the right compliment. The compliment needs be to genuine, charming and honest! Not sleazy!
3) IRON A SHIRT:
A fresh pressed shirt always looks good, but it needs to be taught how to be done properly. A creased shirt looks tacky and unprofessional, if you don’t know how to do it YouTube will help, or your parents!
4) OPEN A BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE:
Now it’s not hard to open a bottle a champagne, but it is hard to make sure you know how to do it right, that means not firing it in someones eye and then ricocheting of someones glass!
5) CHANGE A TYRE:
You never know when you’re going to be driving down the A1 and the your type pops and the AA aren’t answering and your thinking back to when your dad was trying to explain how to do it and you weren’t interested! This is a real essential!
6) SEW A BUTTON:
Any man who thinks that this is only the work of a woman is just that; a man. A gentleman knows how to sew a button on, in a matter of minutes and whenever emergency strikes.
7) PLAY POKER:
It’s a classic game that every man needs to know how to play! A definite essential for the modern gentleman.
8) CHOOSE THE RIGHT WINE:
We don’t mean just red or white, we’re talking knowledge here – when faced with a wine list the length of the Nile, a gentleman should know what to pick with ease and confidence. (N.B – don’t be a wine-snob, no one likes a wine snob)
9) START A FIRE:
A cold winter evening simply begs for a warm fire, a glass of whiskey and a good book, or indeed a beautiful woman by your side, so if you don’t know how to start a fire…get to know.
10) COOK A SIGNATURE MEAL:
Every man should know to properly cook, even its just a simple meal, but a meal that has your finishing touches on it!
11) CHANGE A LIGHTBULB:
Hands down one of the most important things that a man should know how to do. You don’t was your other half asking you and you look at them with a blank… Show them how its done!
12) TIE A BOW-TIE:
It doesn’t matter how often you go to black tie events or when you go to them but it’s so important to know how to do it, or when you go to an event and yours comes undone you don’t look like a total idiot when you have to ask someone else to do it for you! Oh and no clip ons people that’s cheating!
