    It's kinda like offering a pocket square to a girl who is crying. It's the gentlemanly thing to do, especially if she is hot.

    did this last night, and i think ive peaked in life.

    As long as your pocket square is not filled with cardboard.

    No, no, I will have none of that! All mine are filled with ether (chloroform has become far too plebeian).

    the majority of the people here seem to be quite gentlemanly

    You haven't been here long, have you?

    Thanks guys [​IMG] I always make an effort to be courteous to strangers, and if the person is a she and >7, it's just a bonus haha.

    Is that seen as a weird/creeper-ish thing to do, or is it pretty common practice? Thanks in advance for the help, and I apologize again if this isn't 100% relevant to the forum.

    Only appropriate if your umbrella is a Brigg or maybe James Smith. Otherwise, you are opening yourself up for humiliation.

    On a somewhat related note, has anyone found a reason to opt for silk over nylon in their canopy?

    If it was getting really bad, I would probably have pity (not chivalry) and let the person stand under my umbrella, regardless of gender, provided the person was well groomed and presentable. But, of course, I would never find myself caught in the rain in the first place.

    Am I reading this right? if she is >7 (less than 7 years of age?) uh-ohh.
    I hope that was some form of typo on your part.

    ^He was likely rating that she was greater than a 7 in attractiveness which is on a scale of 10 being highest and 1 being lowest; this ">" is the greater than symbol not less than (<).

    I once got a 3 month long relationship out of a 30 second umbrella encounter with a girl. [​IMG]

    Erdawe was indeed correct in his explanation. I apologize for the ambiguity, it just seemed to me a number rating was a pretty standard thing on this forum. I have realized this isn't the case. Sorry for the confusion, and for the record I am not at all interested in little children. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] My mistake. no offence intended. I was never good with math & always got those 'greater than', 'less than' symbols mixed up. Joke's on me then. Cheers. [​IMG]

    Do you feel if it's still gentlemanly upon sharing, that one puts his hand on her low back or butt to guide the path.

    I would argue that one's derelict in his gentlemanly duties unless he does one or both of these things! [​IMG]
