The #1 Way to Know if You’re Ready to Move in Together

The #1 Way to Know if You’re Ready to Move in Together

Problem: So you’ve been dating for several months now. She stays at your place several nights a week. She has more stuff in your closet than you do. And she’s now begun asking that terrible question, “So, when are we gonna move in together?”

You can’t stall forever, but alas, you still don’t know if it’s a good idea to take that ever so committed leap of moving in together.

1. Always watch what you say

Only a child or a fool misuses the power of his tongue. Words have the ability to build up or tear down. And once said, they can never be taken back. A gentleman chooses wisely.

2. Be a contributing member of society/Give without expecting anything in return

Be the first to say hello to a stranger passing you on the street. Give something back to someone less fortune than you whether that be time or money.

3. Speak up and make eye contact

Shifty eyes and a mumble of a low voice would put even the most trusting man on edge. Speaking up while looking into the other person’s eyes shows courage and respect.

4. Smile and make someone’s day with a well timed compliment

My dad used to tell me to smile even when I didn’t feel like it. I hated it, until I understood the reason. When you genuinely smile at someone, you remove the barrier of unfamiliarity. It makes you a welcoming presence and that, alongside a well timed “Nice shoes”, will make half the world fall in love with you.

A friend of mine called me this morning sounding very desperate. He sounded like he’d committed some terrible crime. I asked him what the hell was his problem and he told me that he got a girl’s number. She was a very beautiful girl, he said. In fact, she could be one of the great ones.

“That’s great! So what’s the problem?”

“Our first real date is this Friday.”

“Oh ok. Sorry, I still don’t see the problem.”

“I don’t know where the hell to take her, man.”

“Ah.”

“I’m new to this city, after all. And it’s not like I’m rollin in the Benjamins.”

How to Be a Social Animal at Any Party

How to Be a Social Animal at Any Party

The Scenario: You get invited to a party. The only person you know is also the host, who will undoubtedly be busy with a million different things.

You’re nervous because you don’t know anyone there but you’re excited because as a gentleman you’re aware of the opportunities this can present, and as a suspenderman you never ignore a chance to test your skills as a gentleman.

You ring the doorbell, enter the room, look over at the groups of unknown strangers standing with their drinks and talking.

What do you do?

It’s never really said out loud how uncomfortable parties can be if you don’t know any one. And even if you do, you certainly don’t want to latch on to one or two people the entire time you’re there.

It can be uncomfortable, sometimes downright unpleasant if you deem yourself the sort to sip on the same glass of beer all night and people watch.

With that said, there is a way to overcome the oppression of the I-have-no-idea-who-any-of-these-people-are-kill-me-now party.
