the most noble of all qualities of a man. being a gentleman means being courteous, gallant, chivalrous, selfless, kind, friendly, well mannered, ethical, and of strong moral fiber.

a man should strive to be a gentleman for the betterment of women, not to attract women. (don't expect to attract women just because you are a gentleman, or expect recognition for your behaviour, or you're simply a poseur)

pretending to be a gentleman in an attempt to get women is looked down upon

Not to many people know the meaning of gentalmen now. But a simple way is a person who cares about others more than there own well being.

Many get confused that you have to have a good upbring or always have to be polite.But it's just the little things (like in the example) to make someone less in pain or feel good.

Note: Anyone CAN be a gentleman
