hello stranger.

My brain is in a mess.

The Gentleman Bastards

leave a comment »

The other night Brooklyn Bob asked me what it meant to be a Gentleman Bastard.

“Being a gentleman is not all that hard,” I told him. “Compliment sincerely, insist on paying for drinks, open doors, and give up cabs. Dress well, but no so well others feel uncomfortable, and only swear when it’s important. Listen when others talk, take offense at nothing, and speak the truth as you see it.”

“And that’s it?” he asked.

“Well, also, when you bring someone home, treat them like the sweetest little whore you’ve ever met and fuck them until they can’t remember their own name.”

“That’s what gentleman do?”

“Technically, that’s the bastard part.”

This is totally what Hank from Californication does.

All men should learn how to be like this. Its a fine art, and the ones who succeed are the ones who get all the ladies. After reading this, I realised who I know has achieved this naturally. I don’t think you can force it though, then it just becomes fake and cheesy.

I say try to adapt the gentleman part into your life and once you start getting the ladies, then try the bastard bit. That’s what I think would work (as a woman at least).
