Car Etiquette: Tips for Seating a Woman and Couples in a Passenger Car

The rules of etiquette regarding sitting in a car on social occasions are different from sitting in a business situation. The social rules for traveling by car are especially important when a man opens the door for a woman and when couples are sitting in a car. Smart people who want to move up the ladder of success know the rules and stick to them carefully.

In social situations, good manners require a well-mannered man to help a lady into the car from the curb before walking around the car to get inside. Ladies, everyone knows that you can open your own doors, but some of you are missing the point. Before 5:00 pm, you can be a lioness in the office. However, after 5:00 p.m. M., You better relax, turn into a kitten and stop stealing your man’s manhood. Men, have no idea! Being attentive is a subtlety that is not lost on a classy woman. Even a simple gesture, like opening the car door for her, sends a message that you think she is worth being treated like a princess and are proud to be seen with her. If you have to, pretend until it becomes part of you.

The way couples feel when they travel together is an indication of their social class. When two men and two working-class women travel together, the two men sit in the front seats of the car and the women in the back seats. In the middle class, one couple sits in the front and the other couple sits in the back. Upper-class people choose a different arrangement. The wife of one couple sits in the front with the male driver of the other couple, while her companion sits with the driver’s partner in the back seat. The man in the back seat gives in to the woman giving her the seat of honor – on the rear passenger side. The assumption of this seating arrangement is that a couple spends a lot of time talking to each other. A mixed seating arrangement encourages cross-talk, thus serving the purpose of being with each other – exchanging brilliant conversations, news, and ideas with everyone.

Does this all sound a bit pretentious? Perhaps, but if you are interested in joining the social club, you need to adapt your manners and mindset to the rules of acceptable behavior regarding car manners as in all areas of etiquette.
