So, I haven't been dating this guy very long but I know that he's different from any other guy I've been out with. I'm not saying that I'm in love(I don't like to just throw that wrod around), but it's in the way he acts. I have never been out with an true gentlemen before. The other guys have always wanted something from me, he doesn't and the real thing that is scaring me is that hew trully does care and just wants me to be okay. For the past few days I've been freaking out and just don't know how to act around him or toward him. Am I just over-reacting? What should I do?

This is a statement of the sad state of affairs that exists;
Where the gentleman is not the normal but the strange and unusual.
The answer is actually very easy,
Act like a Lady.
I hope you are up to the task.

it does seem strange, when you are so used to the guys that are the jerks...then a good one comes along and you don't know what to do...A gentleman... I married mine...not saying that is what you should do, but why can't we expect men to be good to us and to treat us right? I say love yourself enough to expect him to be nothing but a gentleman with you. What advice would you give a friend in the same situation? A friend that you love very much....then go stand in front of a mirror, and tell her.

SEA- that is very interesting. I've actually never heard that type of advise before. Thank you very much. And thank you everyone else for your ideas.

Sea has a great way of handling it.  Another way is to write down all the attributes you hope to find in a lifelong partner.  Once you've written them, reread it and see how many you actually possess.  You know, someone who's not neat may want a partner who is, etc.  Remember likenesses attract.  If you're lacking the things you'd want your mate to have, it's time to hone up your own skills.

Listen to Susan she is absolutely right!  Respect all starts and ends with you, and if you think you are worth it, you get it.  Good luck and in response to his actions, just be a lady, and all is well that ends well.

On the one hand true gentleman are rare, and if you've found one hold onto him.

On the other hand, many are the men who can put on the gentlemanly air for the sake of wooing.  Time alone will tell if he remains consistent, or if he is putting up one hell of an act, until he has you. If the latter is the case, expect things to change exponentially once he feels secure in the idea that you are his, as it were.

What you do is be observant of him. If his gentlemaniness is a facade, time and activity will reveal the holes in the armour.
