My Biggest Lesson from Louisiana

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So, for those of who know me personally or follow me on my personal social media, you’ll most likely that I went on a trip to Louisiana, United States for the New Year. I had a wonderful time, visited some dear friends, and finally got to visit my dream city, the jazz capital of the world, New Orleans! However, there was also a lot that I learned while I was there, not just about the culture and the people, but what I think is a good lesson for all young gentlemen to take to heart: the preservation of history. Allow me to elaborate.

Should a Gentleman be Pro-Life?

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from The Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So, it should come as no surprise that the pro-life vs. pro-choice argument is VERY controversial and extremely passionate on both sides, but nonetheless, it’s something I’ve been wanting to talk about for a while. This was also inspired by our admin Mary’s article about the March for Life 2020, so be sure to check that out when you’re done here.

Best Artists to Listen to for Black History Month

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from The Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So today’s article is going to be quite a bit different than a lot of our other articles. Since this article will most likely be going up on February 1st, that means it will be going up at the start of Black History Month. People, at least in the United States, use the month of February to celebrate the contributions that people of color have brought to the world, whether in science, technology, art, music, politics, or any other facet of everyday life. So today, I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my personal favorite African American artists and bring to light their specific contributions to the world of music. You may be surprised by who you see. Also, fair warning, this article will be quite lengthy since I have a lot of artists I want to cover, but I promise you will enjoy it. So without any further ado, let’s get started!

Do Looks Matter?

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from The Young Gentleman’s Guide here! Today, I’m setting out to answer what is possibly the most difficult question when it comes to dating and relationships: do looks matter when looking for a romantic partner or spouse? This is a question that has been floating around and hotly debated seemingly since the beginning of time. There are some who say that looks shouldn’t matter at all, and there are others who say it’s the most important thing when looking for a partner. So today, I’m going to put my hat into the ring and give my take on this issue and give the best advice I can to my readers.

Valentine’s Day: Romantic, or Sham?

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from The Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So, as pretty much all of us in the western world are aware, Valentine’s Day is coming up next month. Lovers are likely getting ready to spend a romantic night together, those who are single are preparing to lament the day by eating mounds of discount chocolate and watching romantic movies, and the majority of us will likely just treat it like any other day of the week. However, in the spirit of the holiday, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about a topic that has been more on the rise over the years. Is Valentine’s Day truly the magical day full or rainbows, roses, and romance like it’s built up to be, or is it just a sham invented by Hallmark and department stores so they can just sell greeting cards and discount candy? The answer that I’ve come to may surprise you.
