The fourth "do": be pluralized!

Whoa, whoa, whoa! This matchmaker advises males to do something strange on a first date.

She advises a male to be a gentlemen. That's right. She suggests the man should pluralize himself! I suppose she doesn't get that one man can be a gentleman, but that only multiple men, collectively, can be gentlemen.

Luckily, ladies, she doesn't suggest that we pluralize ourselves for first dates. Phew! We already take enough time getting all gussied up for dates. Can you imagine if there were two of us we had to dress up? Two showers, two omigod-I'm-not-wearing-the-right-thing-let-me-change-my-outfit-for-the-seventeenth-time, two sets of hair-doing, two sets of makeup-applying, etc. If we had to pluralize ourselves like the guys do, the date preparations would take much longer than the actual date itself!

Not only that, but they screwed up an apostrophe here. Dos does not have an apostrophe in it. (Well, it does here. But it shouldn't.)
