Chivalry is alive and well! (Or I am just very lucky)

I think chivalry is alive - maybe not flourishing as it once did - but women are partly responsible for that anyway, so we cant complain.

And I believe that if you behave a certain way that most men take their cue from that.

Hmm... Do you mean to say women fighting for equal rights?
Well, there you go, you have your equal rights in opening the doors.

Cheers,

I agree with samsara, I will walk a girl home and give her my coat if she's cold but I don't think women these days expect men to give up their seat on a bus or train. What women have lost in chivalry they've gained in equal opportunities.

We're both very lucky, Joz. My husband opens doors, walks on the street side of the sidewalk, pulls out chairs, and all those other little chivalrous things men used to do. He comments regularly on the lack of men's manners when he sees a man open a door and enter before his female companion. I love the fact that he is an aboslute gentleman and I've never had to give a thought to being embarrassed by him.

I'm always being called a gentleman.
I'll open doors, pick up dropped items, help women get buggies down steps, get stuff off high shelves for people.
Name something chivelrous and i've done it.
