What is chivalry? Is medieval knightly system with religious and social code. In my own words is really courage, respect, bravery, loyalty, person with dignity and treat others with with dignity. different acts of chivalry are:
– Opening and holding a door. This does not mean running to get the door why walking with someone that would be rude you know leaving the person in advance to get it but opening it when you get to the door follow the person to enter that’s okay just like your car door you open it for a lady to enter.
-Offering your seat to someone whether you are male or female ladies you are for your seat to a mother an elderly person men the same including females.
-Paying attention to someone while they speak . Having a conversation with self rather not cool worst when there is someone else there to have it with, it’s also cool to consider the other persons opinion when saying this in the old days had the say but now a woman opinion and are and should be taken as important.
-Keeping my promises and oaths that you make. Like I’m going to be there at 7 and you make it there at 45 minutes after.
-Allowing a lady to walk on the inside of a walkway. Gentleman this means you walk I’m outside closest to traffic or danger. The truth is I had a hard time with this one when I was younger, because I like to walk close traffic, silly right.
-Making an introduction shaking someone’s hand on being introduced.
-Putting out a cheer, helping her getting in and out of her colt.
-Verbally asking her out on a date, picking her for the date, listen let’s get this straight asking to me you at the theater or restaurant is not considered a date,well for me that is.
Simple gestures done are points for you man and that’s the truth to be seen as a gentleman it adds credit to how ladies view you. I know with the modern woman this is harder to do because we want equality overall, but with all the equality we still want to be treated like ladies.
Do you think small gestures as these are too much from a man or woman view?
