Chivalry is Dying And Looked Upon as Suspicious? [POLL]
Attention men! A new survey says women think your up to no good if you act like a gentleman! What?
According to Mark Hall, Gentleman Creation Officer for Socked.co.uk:
"Men's standards have slipped so far over recent years that any offer of chivalry from a gentleman knocks a woman off their guard and is viewed with outright suspicion."
How sad! Sounds like the women that took this survey have run into so many jerks that it's soured them! Luckily, I know a lot of gentleman! Starting with my husband and then of course all the guys I work with...well, most of them :)
The survey results said:
82% of women said they would prefer to pay for their dinner on a first date
52% said they would happily pay for the entire bill on a first date
89% of women said they would not take up the offer from a man to carrying their bag
78% would not accept a coat from a man on a cold day
Only 34% of women said they expect men to open doors for them
8% said they would take up the offer of a seat if a man offered. In London, this figure was only 2 per cent.
