I Dont Think Chivalry Is Dead

    Can't Be, Can It?

    How can it be so, that the days of old have faded away? I understand landmarks changing, and building rearranging, but why do we have to loose chivalry as well. I miss the years where a man's word was all he stood on. I am one who would lay in a puddle so you could have dry...

    Chivalry

    I think that chivalry is still very much alive! But some guys just don't show it so that they don't seem so whipped or something, but seriously guys, your gonna automatically look more appealing if you open a door, pull out a chair, or be a gentlemen to a girl.

    I was pleasantly surprised the other day to

    find out chivalry in the younger generation (20 somethings) is not dead. The simple act of asking 'Can I date your daughter?' While not much, for someone who still opens doors for women and pulls out chairs at a restaurant .... I means a lot!
