Women prefer modern 'gentlemen' who text regularly and take out rubbish

A new survey has revealed that women of today no longer expect a gentleman to pay for dinner, instead they prefer men who text regularly and also take out the rubbish.


London, Sept 30 : A new survey has revealed that women of today no longer expect a gentleman to pay for dinner, instead they prefer men who text regularly and also take out the rubbish.

Pulling out chairs and opening doors once used to be the traits of a gentleman, but now making a cup of tea for a woman in the morning, and looking after her when she has a hangover is what is expected.

According to the survey of 3,000 women by Austin Reed, an ability to cook and an understanding manner when a woman is suffering from PMT are some of the essential traits for a modern gentleman.

The survey also revealed that a third of women no longer demand traditional behaviour such as asking for a dance or requesting her hand in marriage.

Instead, one in ten women believe a modern gent should send his wife or girlfriend romantic text messages, and one in 20 think he should make regular posts on her Facebook wall.

But more than two thirds of women think it would be impolite for a man to text on a date, and still want a man to carry heavy bags and hold their hand.

Forty-two percent of women said a true gentleman would never refer to the love of their life as "the other half" or "The Missus".

Fifty-six percent think a man should never mention an ex-girlfriend, and three-quarters of the women felt it was essential that a gentleman should wear an ironed shirt every day, even if it's just for work.

Half of women felt a true gentleman would wear cuff links, 16 percent would like to see a man with a pocket-handkerchief, and a traditional one in twenty would even like to see their partner wearing a bowler hat.

"The concept of being a gentleman isn't dead nor is it old fashioned," the Daily Mail quoted a spokesman for the retailer as saying.

"Being a gentleman is as applicable for our society today as it was in history and is about having respect for yourself and other members of your society.

"Charm, sensitivity, attentiveness, style and being well groomed are key aspects that are seen as important and we hope will continue in the future.

"But it's only natural that over the years society has evolved and that gentlemanly behaviour is bound to have changed.

"Very few men would be expected to put their coat down in a puddle so a lady could walk across it but it's important for men to act and dress like a gentleman as this poll shows," the spokesman added.
