Do girls still like a bit of "chivalry" every now and then? Is opening the door, pulling out the seat, Giving your jacket when it's cold... Still appreciated or do guys just need to stop doing that stuff?
yes of course chivalry is still appreciated. I kid you not, just yesterday my boyfriend held the library door open for me when I was still quite a ways away. He looks at me and says 'hey, I'm being chivalrous. GO!'
hahhah but for real, it should work both ways. I always hold the door open for someone, be it a guy or girl. I offer my jacket/sweater to my boyfriend if it's cold out and he happens to be in just a t-shirt and shorts. If girls expect to be treated with courtesy, we should return the favour!
My father is one of the most chivalrous men I know. After 37 years of marriage, he still holds the door open and pulls out a chair for my mother, and if I'm with them, always holds the door for me and won't walk through until we're both through or any other lady behind us. He has really taught me to appreciate, well, appreciating what that means. If there is such a thing as lady chivalry, though, I would put a check mark next to my name because I always hold the door for others regardless of their sex, when I see older persons who need help with like their groceries or if I have an umbrella and they don't, I offer to walk them to their car. I just think it should be called being a decent human being and being kind to your fellow man or woman.
It's appreciated, but not necessary for me. I hold doors open for whoever is with or behind me. If my boyfriend/guy I was dating did that kind of stuff for me, I'd think it was sweet and shows he cares for me.
I love it. I really appreciate it when a guy gives me the jacket when I'm cold, open the door for me and all... It makes me feel like yes, he respects women, cares about them. (I know it's strange but) it makes me feel beautiful, lol
No need to stop and no need to start from my point of view. I appreciate the gesture if a guy holds the door for me (my boyfriend does always do this) but if I get to the door first and open it myself it doesn't seem like a loss. If my boyfriend gave me his jacket on a cold night, I'd feel guilty that he is now jacketless - far more appealing to have him wrap his arms around me to help me warm up.
Chivalry is loved by girls. I am a very independent head strong girl. But each time a guy opens the door for me or gives me his jacket i turn to mush on the inside. Trust me... there are enough assholes alive.. When a guy exhibits chivalry... It's refreshing and attractive :)
