I think chivalry to me wouldn't be show offy (although I don't mind a bit of theatre for fun), but it would be gestures that took note of my personal needs and foibles.
I'd like to think I might be sensitive enough to do the same in return.
A guy shouldn't hold the door for me because I am a woman, but because I am a fellow human being. Little things that I appreciate include: Opening a door, pulling back a chair, standing when I approach, walk on the kerb side, or the side with the cars, offer to carry parcels, wheel the shopping trolley, offer your arm when walking. I hate walking into unfamiliar pubs, or restaurants first. Very good point, also on business, I would prefer to be treated the same as you treat your male colleagues, unless you are pulling out their chairs and taking their coats, I suggest you dont treat women any differently.I sometimes think chivalry is about someone taking care of their own needs more than someone elses.I was thinking the other day if there are still men out there that still show chivalry these days?Ive been on this site on and off for many years and all I seem to run into are men who seem to just want sex right off, no man wants to show me interest of wanting to get to know me, but to see if they can get into my pants.Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. One of my male teachers opened the door on his first day and then waited whilst over 50 school girls walked through. I think every single woman would love that -- as flattery. When it's all said and done, it's the attitude and the way you carry yourself and how you read the woman. My daughter went to go in a small shop recently and a bloke rushed across the shop and opened the door for her.
