When you are having lunch with your friends or family, table manners will make you a good son, husband or friend. When you are at a business lunch or on a date, table manners can make you a more desirable person. Basically, they are useful and will make you look nice during a meal. The most important event, where you simply must use table manners are dates. Ladies like when you treat them like a princess and when you look like a ‘’prince.’’ Because it is easy to remember a few simple manners, there is no excuse why you shouldn’t use them.
You must start using table manners before meal! The first thing what you must do is to pull a chair, so your date can seat. If you consider that almost nobody does this anymore, you will look like a perfect man! When you sit, don’t put your napkin first. Wait until your lady does that. Try not to hold your elbows on a table! Your back will look hunched. The much better alternative is to put our hands on a table. In that case, your back will look straight.
If your date asks you to add salt, remember that salt and pepper always go together, so add them both. If you don’t know which fork or knife you should use, remember that first you must use those that are farthest from the plate. If you want a break during a meal, you should leave your knife on ‘’4 o’clock’’ and fork on ‘’8 o’clock’’ position. When you are done, put them in the plate and try to stand up at the same time when your date does.
