Gentlemen, Carry A Knife

I’ve seen many young gentlemen being given a box, then pulling out a key to open it.

If you want to be seen as a gentleman, you need to carry a knife of some kind.  Pocket knives – such as Old Timer and Swiss Army – are the most unobtrusive but some men, such as myself, carry “multi-tools” capable of 20 or more functions (such as Leatherman or Gerber) – one of which is almost always a razor sharp blade.

Carrying a blade can be incredibly handy.  It’s not just an issue of opening letters and boxes.  If you’re witness to a car accident and the vehicle is engulfed in flames, you can rescue victims quickly by pulling out your knife and cutting the seat belts.  If an animal is tangled in something, your knife can save its life.

A gentleman cares about every life around him, and carrying a blade – whether an Old Timer pocket blade or more robust Leatherman Surge multi-tool – will allow you to protect those lives before First Responders can arrive.

And ladies, a knife is always appreciated by your man as a gift.  You can never go wrong by buying a man a blade for his birthday, anniversary, or Christmas.

A gentleman carries many things – honor, courage, wisdom – but one of the most practical things any gentleman carries is a good quality blade.

On Being A Hypnotist

Seriously, gentlemen, get your Certified Hypnotist or Certified Hypnotherapist certificate.

I got my CHT back in 1996 and it’s always such great fun to hypnotize a girl and play tricks with her mind.

Since I’ve had my certificate, I haven’t yet dated a girl who didn’t eventually ask me to hypnotize her.  And once it starts, her mind becomes a beautiful playground for you both to explore.

Besides, she’ll think it’s hot af.

His Win-Win Final Decision

Yes, as a traditional girl, you should be deferring every single decision to your man. But if you want to be happy with his decision, you need to limit his options so that you’re both happy.

How would you limit his options?

Let’s say you’re going to the salon to get new nails.  They have a selection of 150 colors, but you want him to decide which color he wants you to have.  You could send him a picture of all 150 colors and let him choose, but if he chooses a color you don’t particularly like, you’re forced to obey, but deep inside, you may resent his decision a little.

So, what do you do?

Of the 150 colors, choose 10-15 that you really, really like.  Once you have them all collected so that they’ll fit into a single photograph, take a picture and send it to him.

No matter which one of the ten to fifteen colors he chooses, you’ll be content with his decision.

You can apply this same principle to anything – hair styles, hair colors, clothing, food, or drink.  If you limit his options to those you like then leave the final decision to him, a wonderful thing happens:

He gets to decide for you, and no matter what he chooses, you’re happy with his decision.

It’s win-win.

Misogynist vs. Sexist

A misogynist believes that, because you’re a female, you need to be broken and kept in your place to make him happy.

A sexist believes that, because you’re a female, you’re inherently broken, and that with his support, guidance, boundaries, appreciation, and routine, you can be built up to make you happy.
