Dating In Montreal Sucks And Here's Why

Chivalry is dead...?
Dating In Montreal Sucks And Here's Why

I'll get straight to the point here - Montreal guys have forgotten what it is to be a gentleman. I'm not going to generalize and say ALL Montreal men lack basic etiquette and chivalry, but from my experience, most guys do seem to forget these two things.

I'm going to run you through a couple of scenarios that will most probably sound very familiar.

1. You're on a first dinner date with this new guy, everything seems to go smooth. The waitress arrives and asks if you'd like one or two bills.

You're trying to be polite and say that you don't mind splitting the bill. Your prince charming then says, "Awesome!" It's actually not that awesome. A gentleman always pays. The term "going Dutch" was invented by the English as an insult: they regarded the Dutch as cheap. Just pay...

2. It's freezing outside and you're not dressed appropriately.

Your BF is wearing a jacket. You turn to him with puppy eyes and say, "It's so cold, I'm freezing" and he's like, "Yep, it's cold outside." Um, hello?! A gentleman offers his jacket to the lady.

3. You're walking into a restaurant and your man doesn't bother to open and hold the door for you.

Instead, he just walks in and heads straight to the hostess, not giving a single fvck how you're doing behind. A gentleman treats all women and girls as ladies. That includes opening doors for them. It's not a condescending act, it's actually the opposite. If the door is the kind that opens itself, you always let the lady go in first, by the way.

4. Your guy tells you he'll come pick you up at 6pm. It's 7.30pm and you receive a text, "Be there in 20 min babe".

A gentleman is always on time. It's common courtesy to respect her time. No gentleman will allow himself to be late for a date or any other event for that matter.

5. You're at a friend's house and there are not enough chairs for everyone.

Your man takes the last chair and you're left standing with a couple other girls. A gentleman gives up his seat. This includes public transport, waiting rooms, etc.

6. You're at a table with your man having dinner in a restaurant.

He is talking with his mouth full and using his fork as a tooth pick...Mind your table manners, gentlemen.

7. You just had dinner with a guy, then you head somewhere for drinks.

You're having so much fun, he's really cool. It's starting to get late. Your guy tells you, "I'll walk you to the cab." A gentleman's priority is his lady's safety. You walk her to her door - not to the cab - you make sure she gets home safely... Especially if you had a couple of drinks.

8. When your guy loses his cool over something stupid and screams at a waitress or his buddy for something...

And you're just there freaking out in your head cause he looks really scary. A gentleman is always respectful and collected. There are ways of dealing with any situation and it doesn't include being rude or going crazy.

9. You had a date with this guy, everything went great, in your head at least.

It's been five days now and you haven't heard back from him. You texted him a couple of things and he's not texting you back. A gentleman always texts back, even if it's to let someone down gently. Don't leave anyone hanging.

10. You meet a guy and you get into relationship talk. He then goes on and on about how his EX was a slut.

So attractive. NOT. A gentleman treats every woman and girl with the same amount of respect as he would treat his mother or sister. In addition, putting other people down in order to elevate yourself is not a gentleman thing to do either.
