    Being a gentleman is always appropriate. It can't go wrong.

    Asking polite questions is a good way to learn what a gal may be interested in; such as what type of music do you enjoy? Do you like dogs or cats (do you have any pets)? Offering to help carry heavy objects or picking up papers is nice. Ask about their favorite hobby or dish. What was the most interesting item they most recently discovered (book, song, or on the web)?

    Women prefer to be treated as intelligent human beings, so opening doors is polite. Saying "please" and "thank you" are always appropriate. If you tell the woman that she is particularly beautiful today, that might be nice.

    Things not to do:

    Don't openly stare (this is considered rude here).

    Don't eat with your fingers or your mouth open.

    Don't speak over the top of someone. Wait until they are finished with what they are saying until commenting.

    Treat women how you would like your mother treated.

    Good luck!

    Girls are girls in any part of the world, and we all like when we are treated with respect.

    Always treat gals in the way they look like, for instance some girls are very strong and do not like being talking about nonsenses, or joking.

    Some other are so very feminine and than you will have to use your good manners, bring flower, recite poems.

    First of all USA ladies like being called in endearment terms.

    treating people with respect and kindness is never a bad idea. if the person you are trying to relate to is not responding well to kindness and respect, chances are, they would have responded poorly no matter HOW you treated them. following the golden rule is always a safe bet...treat others as you wish to be treated. and try to remember that just because a person is a woman, it doesn't mean she is a lower class of human than a man. different does not mean inferior...it just means DIFFERENT.

    Treat your classmates like your friends.

    Be nice, be respectable, smile.

    Girls you like as girlfriends... treat them like your best friend.

    Some girls can be rude. Ignore them.

    Be a gentleman no matter what.

    Very simply put, with kindness and respect. You don't say where you're from, so I'm not sure how you are used to dealing with women, but here you can be open - you can laugh with us, ask us out for a movie or pizza - just be nice, thoughtful, attentive....and I guarantee you'll be a hit.

    By the way, welcome to the US. You don't mention whether you're here to stay or just on a visit, but we hope you like it here!

    Treat women with respect. No hitting, no insults, just sincere compliments. Address them as Ms.____unless they specifically invite you to call them by their first names. Even after they say to call them by their first names, treat them with respect. What I'd recommend is that you first learn what respect is, so you know how to treat them. But how do you treat a respected relative whom you admire? That might be a good guideline for now.

    Take a class on proper behavior towards women and others it is not that hard just treat us how you would like to be treated in return.

    Simply treat them with the same regard and respect as you would any other individual you come into contact with.

    With respect. Treat them the same way you would wish for them to treat you. That would be the best way to determine. If you would not want to be treated in a certain way, chances are neither would they. God bless****
