Ladies, how protective are your male friends? And men, how protective are you of your female friends?

I'm asking because I have noticed that my male friends have different degrees of how protective they are of me. For example when a violent patient attacked me, it was my male co-worker and friend that saved me. He admitted to me that his first thought was "she can handle herself but I'll make sure she's okay when I get done here." When he realized that it was a very violent patient, he said he dropped the meds he was carrying along with his clipboard and ran to help me.

And another male friend is making me think he might be interested. He's fiercely protective of me. When a confused patient called me derogatory terms, I didn't even open my mouth before he was already defending me. He got a little carried away because it was clear he was upset and he yelled at my patient before I calmed him down. He later apologized and said he got upset because he doesn't want to see me treated that way. It did work. That patient was never rude to me again and she apologized.

Also, the fact that both my examples were from work shows I work too much.

Looking back, I think this is going just as expected considering how many people have odd views on society.
