Dear Men

This post is inspired by a trend that was running on Twitter.  It gave me an idea for a post, and this is a shout-out to all the guys reading this.
None of these are meant to put you down or make you feel like you're not trying/doing this already.
If you are, thank you.
If you aren't, this is a challenge.


Dear Men,
You are male by nature, but a man by choice.

Dear Men,
Treat me as you would want guys to treat your sister.

Dear Men,
You should respect me because you respect yourself.

Dear Men,
Don't call yourself a 'gentleman' if you aren't prepared to back up your words and act like one.

Dear Men,
We love it when you take the effort to ask how our day has been.

Dear Men,
Asking a girl out over text is tacky and cheap.

Dear Men,
If you respect a woman even if she isn't a lady, that makes you more of a gentleman.

Dear Men,
Just holding the door open for me will make my respect for you go up a notch.

Dear Men,
Be the kind of man you would approve your daughters of marrying.

Dear Men,
Stay humble.

Dear Men,
Even the smallest act of kindness really does not go unnoticed by us.

Dear Men,
Chivalry never die; some of you just choose to ignore it.
