Atlanta is considered the south. Us “traditional” southerners were mostly raised to behave properly so that people knew you were civilized and socially graceful.
Regardless of where you were born, raised, or learned how to act in a social setting, when you show a serious lack of manners, your dating life can be challenging – as it should.
It doesn’t matter if you are a beautiful woman or a really hot guy, anyone who is rude to a waiter or extremely nasty to someone , it says a lot about their character. A lack of manners could be a symptom of a deeper flaw that would not work well in a dating situation or dating relationship.
Imagine how thoughtless they could possibly be when they have proven how inconsiderate and rude they are to strangers? I think a lot of bad dating behavior stems from a lack of manners. It gets excused and overlooked but if things bug you when you first meet someone, it only worsens when you become involved. This is especially true if you don’t address how it bothers you in the beginning.
How important are manners to you? Do you think someone who has shown poor manners do so because they just don’t know any better? Do you ever feel as if it is appropriate to comment on it?
Have you ever been on a date with someone with bad manners? Do you think they knew how they came across to you?
