Hello gentlemen!
You have been awarded your own private club from which you may scorn the local riffraff. If you continue posting at least 25 posts per day for the next two weeks, this will be a permanent board.
If you notice any problems (file sizes, file types) post in this thread. I'm not sure if we want to make this General or SFW, so you can discuss that, too.
Keep it work safe and stay classy.

What is a gentleman's religion/belief?
Does a gentleman share such things?
What is the key element that defines a gentleman, mentally/emotionally?

A gentleman's beliefs are just that. He might have a short discourse about the manner in which he sees things, but is reserved in his manner such that his audience does not feel imposed upon.

Good evening, gentlemen.

I come to you today curious as to whether or not any of you fellows are proficient in a second (or third!) language.

I myself have studied Russian on and off for the past two years and may plan on learning conversational French as well.

I recently picked up a book on teaching oneself Japanese from my local used book seller, and while quite novice have been pleasantly surprised to find that so far it is quite a reasonable language for an adult student.

Am wondering about Low-end nicotine cigarettes. None of this e-cig bullshit; I like the light and softness of a real cigarette, but I'm looking to cut down on the nicotine and tar content. --- anyone help me out?

Rolling tobacco. Also, chinks produce pretty near-to-nothing cheap-as-dirt kind of cigarettes, but aside from that, every packed cigarette I ever smoked tastes from 5 to 9 out of 10 in terms of strength.

Greetings, gentlemen

I come to you today to inquire about jewelry. Besides a watch (mechanical, of course), wedding ring, and perhaps a locket, what are other gentlemanly items of jewelry, and what are gawdy articles for the riffraff? (like cuban necklaces, earrings, or grills)

My good fellow, you should note the difference between "You" and "U". One is a word and has meaning, the other is a letter and merely indicates a sound.

While we are on the subject of meaning, let us also examine the word "jewelry" and note that if an item bears a jewel upon it, it may be identified as a piece of jewelry. A gentleman's accessories may bear one or more jewels tastefully. Though I will grant you that any item that can be described with the word "encrusted" is far too gaudy and conspicuously wealthy to be a proper choice for a respectable gentleman.

I find that donning religious necklaces can be found very gentlemanly by our more pious peers.

Agreed, with caveats. First, it should ideally be no bigger than a penny (or other similarly sized coin, depending on your currency of choice), with a chain or cord no thicker than needed for a pendant this size. Any larger than this and you risk turning yourself into a billboard, at which point you might as well be wearing a Nike "Swoosh" or other meaningless logo.

Secondly, it should be of one material only, and while it may be of precious metal or shaped precious stone, applied gems are right out.

These two may be overlooked to a certain degree, should the item have sentimental significance. But in all circumstances, a religious pendant should be kept under the clothing in all except the most casual of circumstances.

I love physical activity, I love playing games and running around.

This being said, I am not very fit although I would like to be.

I'm interested in some sports but don't know how to get into them. The two main ones are Rugby and Boxing (do not want to compete though).

How should I get into these? Should I just look for amateur leagues/boxing classes?

Thanks for your time!

Calisthenics. They work the body and the soul, you don't need equipment of any kind, and you only compete against yourself. Download Convict Conditioning and get started.

Sophisticated Gentleman 15/01/06(Tue)06:02 No. 2991

Start by running and body weight exercises. Get to where you can run a mile or two within 10-12 minutes. Do push ups, pull ups, dips, and crunches. These are all things that you can do without any money and some room to move around. There's often pull up bars, dip bars, etc. in public parks as well (which are also great places to run)! Eventually you'll probably want to get a gym membership and start weight training or other more advanced things, but you need to meet a certain baseline for fitness and commitment before that's worth it.

If you want to play rugby you should find a starter class, like those of university or college, because playing rugby require a general good physical form and muscles.
Both rugby and boxing training includes wightlifting and running but you should be carefull if you don't want to ruin your face or beak some bones.
I personally like more rugby than boxing, because of the running.

Every gentleman needs his drink to settle down after a hard day of work. In my case I like a scottish whisky, preferably single malt and aged a minimum of 10 years to exhibit the right flavors.

What is your spirit of choice /class/?

I don't really drink, but when I do I like a nice chilled vodka. The flavor and that sting is just like melted sugar to me. Course, I enjoy a nice Absinthe every now and then, classic French or Bohemian prepared.

Hello gentelmen.

I am very glad 4chan exists so the nicer stuff can be kept elsewere and safe from the majority.

My first post is dedicated to a very simple question that I cannot solve:

I'd like to dress well but I'm not sure of the limit between class and queerness.

I'm planning on buying some elegant boots since I dont like shoes, and fitted shirts. I guess I also need some kind of coat, and I'll be aiming for expensive functionallity like a discrete Helly Hansen ore something similar.

When does the limit start? What are some functional brands that are elegant? What are some boots that are functional,slim, discrete and can be worn with a suit?
What is a nice lighter that is not a zippo?

Thanks in advance.

Look for:
- A nice pair of leather, lace-up, ankle boots.
- A wool blend overcoat. I prefer a herringbone pattern.
- A Dunhill lighter of any variety.

Branding does not matter unless you are on a red carpet. Cost is almost always equal to quality when you stick with the paradigm.

Hello gentlemen (and ladies),

I propose a thread about relationships, not how to attract the opposite sex, but how to show a potential partner you find them attractive/intelligent/charming but aren't interested in any sort of relationship with them (for one reason or another).

Not that I'm currently beating off the women with a stick mind you, but occasionally I find that a woman can mistake my flirty nature and interest in them for something more than occasional banter, and I have not found a way to respectfully explain that I'm currently not interested in a relationship.

However, I feel it's wrong to simply ignore them and not carry on a conversation that can be enjoyed between a sexually attracted people, even if it leads nothing.

What methods do you propose /class/?

Sorry to double post, but those pick up artist people ''RSD'' were in my city for a free tour on Thursday. What I took away from it was when I want to take a girl to my place I'll say: " wanna go to my favourite place in Melbourne" but I won't tell them it's just my apartment. And, when I'm conversing, to think abut if what I'm saying meets the FRED criteiria: focus, relevance, emotion and decisions. I also heard a clever line for when I'm going out to lunch by myself and I see someone else eating alone I can say: I'm looking for love and icecream. Do you want to come with me?

Aren&!JYOcPX8RI2 14/08/30(Sat)02:09 No. 2857

The proposal, as I see it, is to expand society's definition of "single but not looking" to allow a person to still engage in the behaviors of looking. I believe that the key lies in the original post, e.g. "my flirty nature." It is also possible that "relationship" has not been sufficiently defined, either in the OP or in our society.

It is sometimes advisable to begin with a joke. I recently saw on a sit come a man who would wine and dine a female friend, complete with joking and flirting, yet had no interest in a relationship with her. Obviously the fanbase of the show was divided on the subject of their relationship, but the female friend was in a relationship and the man was accused of being a "fluffer." I will not explain the term, but it seemed that while a male friend provided the courtship elements of flirting, the boyfriend provided the courtship elements of having sex and being officially in a relationship with the girlfriend. This was deemed inappropriate, the boyfriend failing to perform all this duties and the female friend being in a pseudo-relationship with another man, and I am not advocating a new form of relationship.

However, unless we were to invent a new form of "flirting only" relationship, we must work with ideas about relationship invented long before our time. In a time before our time, a lady seen flirting with a gentleman might be accused of harlotry if she were not in some sort of relationship with that gentleman that had marriage as its end goal. Marriage was expected to be a life-long partnership, so a minimum period of courtship was expected so that no one would rush into anything they might regret later. Now it could be that you, by openly flirting with a young lady, were putting her in a difficult position where she had to pressure you to define your relationship for an old-fashioned relative. However, you also may be suffering from the loss of this "minimum courtship period" and its accompanying gestures. During this courtship period, a man was required to prove his interest with flowers, gifts, and other gestures to back up his flirting. Without these gestures, or rather without their requirement, it becomes difficult to distinguish casual flirting from more ardent pursuit.

The best option for OP might be to always be in a small group of people and flirt with all members of the opposite sex equally. This would show that they have a "flirty nature" because he does not single out a "true love" and lavish her with all his attention. Another option might be to keep his flirtations extremely shallow, leaving praise for the more intimate details to the one who "really sees her," to him who is actually seeking a relationship with her. This may not actually solve the problem, which is always a concern when applying an old system to a new problem.
