Chivalry while dating
Although chivalrous, he doesn’t walk around town calling women “dames”, or question their ability to hold down a good job and drive a car. My friend was being nice, and as a result of his friendliness he was made to feel uncomfortable, as though his nice gesture was part of some hidden-agenda to sneak a peak.
He was caught off guard by her accusation, but ultimately, was able to laugh it off.
I posed a hypothetical scenario for my girlfriend, who is a level-headed person. Your car is parked right outside the establishment’s front doors. If he removed the snow from her windshield he ran the risk of coming on too strong; I mean, she could totally clear her own windshield – she’s not a frail and feeble helpless thing.
She has hosted over twelve hundred speed dating/mixer events, coached hundreds of men and women into dating gurus, and she has proudly played matchmaker for countless love-seeking singles.
If it’s raining, snowing, or cold outside, offer up your jacket.
Such an action lets her know that you are not selfish.
However, don’t treat her like a baby and only hold her hand right before you’re about to cross the street – that’s a turn off.
To conclude: fellas, chivalry’s place in today’s dating environment is confusing, without question, but it is very much prevalent, as well.
However, while dating, treat us with respect, but also remember that we still long for a man with manly qualities; a guy who, without being controlling or demeaning, understands that his lady, is a lady, after all.
