Why does he keep holding the door open for me on our dates?

I've been dating this guy and when we hang out together we spend 10 hours together almost every date we go on together.
I've noticed that on our dates he always makes an effort to hold open every door for me and always allows me to go first in anything, whether it's ordering anything or walking up the stairs first.

Where does this holding the door come from?

  • Being polite, respectful. He's obviously old fashioned, was either raised that way or just believes that's what a guy does for a woman and the way it's "supposed to be". Used to be the way it was way back when. Although rare, it's still around to this day as you see. If it bothers you though, just tell him politely that it's not necessary.

  • That is what you call a gentleman lol. Not every guy you meet is going to hold the door for you.
    Out of respect and curiously, men always let the women walk first, order first, talk first... etc. Take it as a compliment and enjoy it!

  • He is treating himself as lower than you because societal standards have told him to do so. I see it the same way as you. I think its nonsense.
