I'm an old fashioned guy, pulling out chairs, opening doors, trying to pay when out etc.

What about the rest?

I live in London and have stood on trains/buses etc, heavily pregnant and no seat offered to me... and then just sometimes you get someone who you aren't even expecting it from to be so sweet and offer you a seat or open the door or pick something up for you etc... and I do admit to feeling a rush of gratitude for little acts like that... It just makes life more pleasant really.

Having said that I think it comes with the territory of greater equality, so I think it also appropriate for women to show openheartedness and kindness to men also.

Well my boyfriend is pretty good to old woman/pregnant woman and woman with babies, he holds doors open trys to help however her can........ but does nothing like that for me x

My hubby has always been the same, even my 7 year olds holds doors open if he can open them, always says please and thank you, but you see some lads round our way who are so rude/ ignorant it makes you think why didnt he parents teach them these things as they grew up


Brilliant, I was brought up like this and it didn't do me any harm *twitch* lol

Says it all in the title, any man that calls a woman a "chick" is certainly not a gentleman.:thumbsup:

I was on a bus, long while ago now and a bunch of kids maybe my hubby's lil bro's age like 20, 21 got on and were rough housing one another, swearing, mucking around etc, and I was feeling a little frightened as it was late, coming home from work about 11pm ish. I was maybe 7 months pregnant, and one of the men came towards me, and then helped me down to a seat.... it was so sweet and kind. It sounds kinda... paternal but it wasn't at all, it was just a random act of kindness and one I've remembered since.

When I told my husband, he was like.. "seee, you can't judge people from appearances."

He's right too.

We're in an equal society and you wimmins are quite capable of opening your own doors etc

Unless, you're old/infirm/pregnant, you're standing up, whilst I enjoy the seat I found :p

last time i held open a door for a woman, she gave me the male chauvenustic rant so i slammed it into her face and walked away
i will still do it tho, 1 bad apple and all that
#24
I must admit when my hubby does it for other woman I do get all jealous though, he can answer the door and if he's like " Oh.... helllllllllllo" I know it's a woman :P

my hubby is a real gentleman....when we go for a walk he makes me walk on the side away from the road, he gives me his coat when it's cold, he never lets me go to the bar, he takes my coat and pulls the chair out for me when we go for a meal and puts my nightie down when we've finished lol

it's in the corner, behind the toilet, the place where no-one can reach to clean lol

My hubby used to say "preggers" too, he'd tell me, "Look at the state of you!" and think it was affectionate in some way.

Grrrr, I'm gonna go hit him now lol
