I researched the definition of chivalry and the ideas about it. It goes back centuries and was the systems that a knight lived by. There code of conduct so to speak. Now moving forward to modern times the basic meaning for chivalry is have courtesy and kindness towards a woman, it is just that simple. So is chivalry died?
I personally would not say it is dead. If you say that it is dead that means no one alive today is kind and courteous to women. We know that is not true there are plenty of men that are willing to throw themselves in front of a woman and take a bullet so to speak. Now I will agree and say that it could possibly be an endangered species.
There are still men who opens doors, will walk you to your car or to your door to make sure that you are safely inside. There are still men who pay for the first date, or at least offer. There are still men who walk on the outside of the curb, and kiss you on the cheek after a first date. There are men who still write love letters or today emails. There are guys who have a great sense of manners and would give up his jacket for you in a heartbeat! Yes, he’s cold too and yes, she knows she should have brought her jacket, but the fact of the matter is that he is willing to sacrifice.
Does technology hurt chivalry? With automatic doors and locks do men just forget sometimes to do it? Some men just forget to open the door when they finally come to one that you have to pull but even most once they notice you opening the door they will grab it. Now there are jerks out there we all know and understand there is no way to get around it. We cannot confuse them with a good guy that just might not open every single door or pay for every single meal (we will save that for another day).
So I ask the question is chivalry died?
Remember to always keep it GC
