Ladies, do you prefer dating polite men who are somewhat "old-school" or do you prefer a challenge?


I get a plethora of comments (on one of my hubs) from men who say that being a gentleman doesn't work, and that he has to "play games" and be a jerk to get women. So....is the nice guy doomed? Be honest. Guys can chime in with their experiences too.

    Unfortunately, some women do feel that way. I presume they are either "still growing" or they don't think much of themselves. As for Denzel, he's my man!!! A true gentleman. Thanks, Grace!

    I appreciate your honesty, Kawai. A man can be "virile" and a gentleman. It doesn't have to be one way or the other.

    Me too, peach purple. I like them shy or friendly, as long as they treat me respectfully.

    I agree, Jodah. A woman who is a lady really isn't attracted to a man who acts badly. Personally, I am immediately turned off by men like that. Dating them is not an option for me. Thanks for commenting!

    Thank you for chiming in, Limey. I think that Q&A's pertaining to dating are always relevant. Personally, I believe that whoever asks pays. That being said, women feel compelled to pay for half of dinner these days, in truth, for safety reasons.
