I still open doors for my girlfriend, I still pick her bags up when we're shopping, and I don't take any of it as a "task". I don't understand why chivalry is "dead".
Chivalry is definitely not a dead art. There are so many gentlemen in the world who are carrying the tradition of chivalry alive in the modern society. Women just need to be patient and find a man who is willing to treat them like a princess. These men will not allow any harm to befall their women in whatever fashion. They will never let themselves be the sources of pain for the women in their lives.
They will make their women feel like the luckiest girls on the planet. So how do you know when you’ve found that person who espouses everything that it means to be a gentleman? Here are some signs you can look out for.
1. You don’t get anxious when you’re texting him.
He doesn’t make you feel nervous about what you’re texting him. He also never allows you to wait long periods of time before receiving a reply. He makes you feel very comfortable about who you are and what you’re going to say to him.
2. You feel like you’re a better person because of him.
You’re inspired and motivated to pursue your dreams and achieve your goals. You feel like you can take life by the horns because he gives you that strength. You think that you’re just a better person overall since you’ve started dating him.
3. You have no problem introducing him to your friends and family.
You never feel like you have to conceal him from society. He is such a great person that you want to show him off to your friends and family. It’s also a good sign if he’s able to integrate himself into your social circles without much problem.
4. He keeps his promises.
Promises are never meant to be broken. That is a basic rule in the art of a gentleman. If he makes a promise to you, then you can always expect him to keep it. He will never leave you hanging or waiting in vain. If he says that he will be there to meet you, he is going to be there to meet you.
5. You have a better idea of what good men are like and how they’re different from bad men.
You now have a better understanding of men and you are now able to segregate the good ones from the bad ones more easily. You know what qualities the good men have, and you automatically know whenever you’re in the presence of a true gentleman because of the guy you’re dating.
6. You are no longer distrusting of men.
You used to always believe that men are the enemy. However, because of the gentleman that you are dating, you now know that not all men are going to hurt you. You’ve let go of all your emotional baggage from previous hurtful relationships.
7. You know how to make him happy because he’s honest to you.
He tells you exactly what he wants out of your relationship in a very respectful manner. Therefore, you really don’t have a problem with trying to figure out how to make him happy. This brings lots of balance and harmony in your relationship.
8. You don’t nag or throw fits.
Nagging is a thing of the past. You no longer find yourself constantly pissed off and having to voice out your frustrations. You’re actually dating a real adult now, and you don’t have to deal with the stresses of dating an immature man.
9. You feel safe whenever you’re around him.
He always manages to make you feel safe whenever he’s around. He makes you feel comfortable in your own skin and you never have to worry about getting hurt whenever he’s around. Emotional and physical pains are a thing of the past because of him.
10. He’s not afraid of commitment.
You get the sense that you’re dating a man who isn’t afraid to commit himself to you. And yet, he also doesn’t feel like he has to rush into anything and he never pressures you in the relationship.
11. He keeps your private lives… private.
He doesn’t kiss and tell. He doesn’t let his friends in on the intricacies of your private life because he respects you enough to know that you value your privacy.
12. He never brings up the topic of exes.
He would never use exes as a way to make you feel bad in an argument. He knows that this is a sensitive topic and he would never want to make you feel uncomfortable.
13. He’s there for you even though you know you’re being terrible.
Even when you know you’re acting unreasonable, irrational, and downright bratty, he will never leave your side. Even when you’re being a big pain in the butt, he’s always going to stick it through because he knows that you would be devastated if he just left you alone.
14. He makes everything seem so simple but beautiful.
Everything is just so easy and simple with him. You don’t ever feel like you have to work too hard to make your relationship work, and yet, despite the simplicity of your relationship, everything is just so beautiful.
