Today's Gentleman (TG) is a site for all those that believe being a true Gentleman is as important now as at any time in history. TG holds that behaviours that used to be taught to young men need to be brought to life again. Those simple, courteous and respectful behaviours, particularly in how men interact with women, seem to have been lost in today's society.

Whatever happened to:

  • - Giving up your seat for someone who needs it more?
  • - Holding a door open for someone else?
  • - Lending a helping hand when you see someone in need?

It's these little things that shape our society, and make a big difference in peoples' day.

So TG is a site for those who believe Chivalry is alive and well, and if we all lead by example we can make a difference. A site to debate these topics and recognise examples of real TG conduct.

Two stories worth reading

STORY NUMBER  ONE Many years ago, Al Capone virtually owned Chicago .  Capone wasn’t famous for anything heroic. He was notorious for enmeshing the windy city in everything from bootlegged booze and prostitution to murder. Capone had a lawyer nicknamed “Easy Eddie.” He was Capone’s lawyer for a good reason.  Eddie was very good!  In [...]

The Top 30

Guest post from Edmark Lowell delos Santos. 1. Always be selfless, considerate and loving of other people. Loving other people will surely manifest even in the littlest of things that you do for them, which will eventually accumulate to gain a foothold in their hearts. You will win them. Show interest in other people. When appropriate, [...]

SOMETHING TO PONDER: George Carlin

George Carlin’s wife died early in 2008 and George followed her, dying in July 2008. It is ironic George Carlin – comedian of the 70′s and 80′s – could write something so very eloquent and so very appropriate. An observation by George Carlin: The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller [...]

Attributes of the modern gentleman

Guest post from Clare Duncan of Grace and Poise Just as we are aware that graceful, elegant women are a rare find in society today we also realise that men, not just men in general but true, eloquent, respectful gentlemen may seem to be even more of a rarity.  It may be even relevant to ask has our modern, [...]

Being a Gentleman – Guest Post

A Gentleman – by George J Stewart A GENTLEMAN He treats everyone with respect. He treats himself with respect. Being a gentleman is an attitude. It is an attitude about life. It is also a behavior, which can be learned and acted out. But, for a man to be a true GENTLEMAN he must have nearly an innate attitude about [...]

The Charm Offensive

I thought I would share this as an interesting read, published by the Young Foundation in the UK. Keen on your thoughts. Civility can seem like an old fashioned concept and the British public tends to think we are on a spiral of decline when it comes to everyday politeness. This report, co-funded by the Arts [...]

How to sell like a gentleman.

A guest post from a fellow gentleman: When you think of gentlemanly professions, I’m sure titles such as Doctor, Teacher & Philanthropist come to mind. But I’d bet my right arm that Salesman didn’t arise. Why? Well this post isn’t about the perception most people have of sales people (if you want to read more [...]

What will you stand for?

It is probably a little too easy in today’s society to go about the day to day ignoring what does not immediately affect us. I listened with dismay, a little while ago, to a discussion on television about the proposed introduction of a “Good Samaritan” law. The impetus behind this were a number of cases of individuals seeing [...]

What is true success?

John Wooden (14 October, 1910 – 4 June, 2010) remains one of the most respected sports coaches in history, but for me he was a philosopher.  Here is a fantastic talk which touches on some very important aspects of defining individual success, which are very much in line with my own philosophy.

Belonging to the right gang

As we develop as individuals, we learn through experience.  When we are children, we observe behaviours of those around us, particularly our family, and we get to understand boundaries.  As we grow, it becomes observations of friends, those at school, work and those we come into contact with regularly. Through our lives we get the [...]
