I am 60 years old. When I am with my lady, I open doors, I pull her chair out for her, I run to the car to get the umbrella and come back for her; you get the idea. It's called chivalry, good manners, etc. I wasn't born knowing to do those things; I was taught by my college fraternity. (Yes, that's right. Rolling Stone didn't even get part of the story right and they ignored the majority of the good things that happen in fraternities.) This behavior generally scores points with ladies in my age bracket.
I understand that most of the people on this site are much younger. I often hear younger guys making fun of chivalrous behavior but I have heard younger girls say that they wished younger guys would get it and act more like gentlemen. So, here's the poll. Send a message to some younger guys with your vote.
