Cowboy Logic

You act like a gentleman until she proves she's not a lady. Then you do it anyways because that's what makes you a man! I've seen this in action and it's amazing.

And that woman who doesn't act like a lady.... more often than not starts acting like one because of the way he is conducting himself. I'm not implying that men have to be gentlemen in order for a woman to act like a lady. I'm a woman so I reversed the cowboy logic and I act like a lady no matter how the man is acting! I've had the reverse happen to, where the crude man started cleaning up their language and acting more gentlemanly while around me.

If you act polite and like you have manners, it can be contagious.
