Chivalry is pretty much dangling by a fine thread, practically clinging to life support! But, my fine fellows, it isn't dead yet. Sadly, chivalry is beginning to come to a close. Well, as women, we simply can't let that happen. For what attracts a woman to a man is his ability to be a gentleman at all times. No woman wants to be around a neanderthal who yells and spits and, for some reason, can't seem to find the toilet when they pee.
Today is going to be a simple gentlemanly tip, and one I'm sure that every man knows (but sadly doesn't act on in most cases): Opening the door for others.
Now, let's be honest. I know how to open a door. I'm sure every woman knows how. But to tell you the truth, it's a very nice and considerate gesture when a man does it. All too often during a date or even out with a good guy friend of mine, I am stuck being the door person because the boy suddenly lost the ability to reach out for a door handle.
Opening a door is so very simple, so why should it matter? I'll tell you why it matters, bucko! For a guesture that is so small and simple, it actually says a lot about a man. It shows you are confident and respectful, which are two aspects of a man that a woman finds enduring. The more you respect a woman, the more respect you'll gain in return.
And this doesn't mean you should just open the door for women. It's nice to know that you'll open a door for your date, but what about your elderly? Or a stranger holding a large parcel who is trying to open the door to their complex? Opening doors for others should be second nature. Showing kindness and respect for others will benefit you considerably.
With this knowledge you don't have to wear a ton of chain mail or own a steed to be a woman's knight in shinging armor. Tune in on Mondays, men.
