Just out of curiosity, ladies, what do you consider smooth in a gentleman? I have no ulterior motives for asking; I just heard a lady call someone smooth today (in a strictly ironic tone) and that set me to wondering. I wouldn't appreciate smarmy or oily smoothness. But I work with a Polish gentleman in his early sixties who always kisses ladies' hands when he first meets them. I remember feeling a bit taken aback when I met him, but I have since learned to admire that old-world courtliness. What about you ladies?
