i am the kind of girl that likes a guy to open a door every now and then for me, take the lead in the relationship, (and in the bedroom) and just you know generally be a guy, I want him to go have "guy" time, I don't want him to ALWAYS be around me, but it seems all the guys I have dated don't like to do that stuff.
is this too much of a "old school" view?

Honestly that isn't too much of an "old school" view.
I can attest to you that you're not the only girl with this problem.
Dudes these days seem to be (on average) more emotional and compassionate, and less aggressive and masculine.
I think that societal standards implicitly teach males that females are on equal ground and like attention and communication, so more dudes (especially with a lack of father figures growing up these days), are being less masculine, as in "taking the lead", "wearing the pants", etc.
I believe that now more than ever, with females having careers and taking on so much responsibility, that they would appreciate a guy "being the man" and taking some of that decision-making off of female's shoulders once in a while.
Don't you agree?1
