For some reason I think men have forgotten their manners or they just weren’t taught them, but opening a door for a woman should be mandatory. It isn’t that hard to open a door when you see a women with groceries or even just her hand bag!
Are We Teaching The Men Of Our Generation Right?
I know it is more common now that a woman makes more money than a man. And some men opt to stay home with the kids while their wife works, but that should not take away the need for chivalry and just general manners. I cannot remember the last time a man opened a door for me or a car door. Why is this so much to ask? It should be a “given” in my book. I still hear the stories of men taking their mates on to exclusive holidays unannounced so I know the chivalrous man is not a dying breed out there. Or is it?
Is it dead where I live in the United States? Or is it just because women are upping men on the pay scale and in general so they feel they have to take this away because they feel less of a man? I have not figured it out yet. Older men I date do what they are supposed to but not those in their twenties.[quote align="right" color="#999999"] There are many stories I can share, like dating a pretentious pompous 31 year old who wanted to be a baller but just didn’t meet that standard since I paid for that whole relationship! [/quote] I don’t have very much longer in my twenties, I’m not ashamed to admit. My twenties were a trying time for relationships in my life. I feel they were a waste of time and a part of my life that I feel I will never get back. There are many stories I can share, like dating a pretentious pompous 31 year old who wanted to be a baller but just didn’t meet that standard since I paid for that whole relationship! So if I am having to pay and open my own door do I get the right to check the box as sole provider if had been married? And I would have to say that would be a no because of the “old school” guys who think men still make more and provide more for their family.
Well times have changed, so everybody be prepared for the successful women to stand up and say they deserve to be treated better. We work, go to school and raise a family all on our own. So if you don’t want to give us chivalry than be prepared for a lot of women speaking out and demanding better pay just to have to support and deal with our significant others!
