There are times when you long for the days when chivalry in dating was the norm. Opening doors, pulling out chairs, guiding a woman through a room seem to have survived modern day dating. I think these gestures make me swoon more than anything.
Recently, I saw a woman get mad at her guy because he did not speak up when somebody said something rude to her at a bar. She felt it was his place to check the person. He thought she picked a fight by talking slick about the man’s favorite sports team. She made it about being chivalrous and he thought he was keeping a cool head.
I think we all have different ideas about what chivalry means today versus what it used to mean back in the day. Do you think protection is always a part of being chivalrous?
How would you define chivalry in our modern times? What was the last chivalrous act you did or received?
