    Chivalry Is Ancient Practice

    It is unfortunate that some men have their shorts in a knot about feminism andits also a shame some women tend to throw this in men's faces.But there are some of us out there that like to feel appreciated by a spouse, partner, love one, etc.Opening a door or helping you with your...

    Guys...I'm sorry, if you're gonna pick me up

    for a date, I expect you to COME TO THE DOOR, not just wait in your cars and text me "here." It's common courtesy, and it makes a great impression on the parents. Thank you!

    It's definitely dying.

    With all these current teenage boys (and girls) with their 'swag' and so on. They have no respect at all and don't know how to treat a girl like a lady. A guy has to step up and be a gentleman. I think it's very important. And it's not just the man who should be a gentleman, the...

    I oppose this statement,

    but I respect others' opinions: it's not dead. Believe me, I've met a really wonderful guy who loves me for me (and boy am I a lot to handle). He respects me and treats me like lady (tho I don't want him to sometimes). He's a rare apple and I'm sure, if you look and try hard...

    Do men still open doors,

    hold hands, kiss goodnight. Heck at this point I'd be happy with someone who would help me carry in groceries

    I can absolutely appreciate how much rejection

    (and the fear of rejection) sucks major balls. It's terrible, but it's also a critical part of learning to coexist in the world. It's amazing to me that lack of maturity out there and the sense of weird entitlement that seems to come with that lack of confidence. Moreover...

    Courtesy Should Live, But Chivalry Should Stay Dead.

    While I think it is good to be courteous, I am very glad chivalry is gone and if it were to come back I'd feel like society took one giant step backwards. I think it is good to treat everyone with respect. When entering a building I hold the door for the person behind me...

    I find chivalry a dying act.

    Not only are guys being total di**s to woman but it reflects badly on those of us who do practice it

    Chivalry Is Dead, It's Overrated

    I think Chivalry is sexist. Haha. Coming from a girl. I hate the rule "Don't hit a girl." I think if your mad enough at someone that you would fight them, you shouldn't just give someone a free pass because of their gender. Then again, you shouldn't really hit people at all, but...

    I think it's definitely dying out

    but when you do come across a guy who does act like this it's the nicest thing and because to me it's such a dying breed of man they always stick in my head for a long time after..

    After 160 Years Of Females Demanding

    Feminism in the US was organized at the Seneca Falls Conference in 1848. They have been demanding "equality" ever since. Unfortunately they only demand "equality" when it favors them. They never demand "equality" when they can use emotional manipulation to get some fool man to...

    Chivary Isn't Dead

    It's just endangered. However, if you're one of the few guys who holds the door open for me, or gives up your seat for me on the bus. You automatically have my interest. Even if your not very attractive, or you're someone I wouldn't normally talk too. It shows you were raised...
