Gentlemanly Gestures (7008f2e)

Thinkstock
In the past, it had been considered befitting a gentleman to seize a chair for his lady. Nowadays, that is considered a bit too formal. As a gentlemanly gesture, you should instead be sure that your lady sits down before you do. Remaining standing for that fraction longer is really a mark of respect and good manners , even though she doesn’t consciously see it. Again, this should be achieved in a non-ostentatious way. Don’t ensure it is too obvious you are looking forward to her to sit back. If you need to buy time, try hanging your coats up while she sits down.
