There is a part of chivalry that sometimes gets lost in translation. Opening doors and being a gentleman is one of the ways a woman gets her sense of security from men. I think it is also important to women to feel that they are being taken care of and protected.
During the dating phase, part of our time is determining how safe we feel with our guy. I don’t expect the men that I date to be the Kevin Costner to my Whitney Houston, because a bodyguard is not the dynamic I want. I would like to know that my well-being and safety is a concern, though.
It’s important not to just feel physically safe, women want to feel emotionally safe too. I know, “we ask for a lot” according to some men, but is it really hard?
