Guys, Someone told me that when a guy likes the other, they'll pull out the stops. They'll want to make sure she feels special, or else he doesn't care for her that much. Is this true? Or have things changed for the most part?
girls, do you experience this a lot?
I personally have dated chivalrous men. But recently I started dating a guy who doesn't do this stuff and I can't tell if it's cause he just doesn't like me that much.

I follow the code of Chivalry always
To fear God and maintain His Church
To serve the liege lord in valour and faith
To protect the weak and defenceless
To give succour to widows and orphans
To refrain from the wanton giving of offence
To live by honour and for glory
To despise pecuniary reward
To fight for the welfare of all
To obey those placed in authority
To guard the honour of fellow knights
To eschew unfairness, meanness and deceit
To keep faith
At all times to speak the truth
To persevere to the end in any enterprise begun
To respect the honour of women
Never to refuse a challenge from an equal
Never to turn the back upon a foe
And I am a gentleman always
The gentleman's code
"The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others, rather than his own; and who appears well in any company, a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe."
John Walter Wayland (Virginia 1899)
Anyone can be heroic from time to time, but a gentleman is something you have to be all the time.

Totally disagree. Chilvary is a personality type or at least a reflection of a persons upbringing/culture, etc. A chivalrous man is likely to do those things even for someone they dont like romantically, and a guy who doesn't do those things may just be showing he likes you in a very different way2
