This is totally my FH and friends have said the same thing! Our first date I was so confused when he opened his car door for me (it was a really casual date so I guess I wasn’t expecting that) and then he pulled a dozen roses out, it was adorable. He still does it now! It’s funny too b/c he actually gets a little irritated when I open doors myself!

My husband is!!  I thought that it was just to impress me in the beginning, but he still continues to be a gentleman all the time!

Not so much, I mean my fiance is generally very considerate and thoughtful, but honestly I’d be annoyed if he insisted on opening doors etc every time. (that’s not meant to ruffle any feathers, just a personal preference.)

The funny thing is that my Fi recently bought a new project car and the passenger door would only open from the outside, so his friends made a lot of jokes about “forced chivalry” and “Chivalry really isnt dead,” etc. It was kind of entertaining, but I am really glad that he fixed the door!

Love him, but no, I wouldn’t call my FI a gentleman. And I really prefer it that way. We have a really equitable relationship, both in deep ways and in small matters.

Yes he is! On our first date he walked me to my car and opened the driver’s side door for me. I was confused and thought he thought he was going to drive my car! Haha. That’s one of the first things I fell in love with <3

My FI opens doors for me (though I don’t wait for him to open my car door if I am inside the car), generally takes an interest in my well being, and sends me random flowers. I’ve never dated a gentleman so it was odd. For while he would even push the door back closed, say “NO!”, and then open it. It made me laugh everytime. Now when we get to a door and I will pretend it is too heavy to open and say “Why isn’t this opening? They always open for me before!” He made his bed…

That is so cute! I would have to say that my fiance is a “modern gentleman”.  He treats me like a princess and brings me little presents often but knows that I can be a headstrong girl and sometimes I like opening the door for myself.  He really manages to find the perfect balance.

My husband can turn it on and off and isn’t in the southern gentlemen sense.  We’re both very sporty and outdoorsy so for us it’s a bit different when we do dress up but he’ll make sure my bicycle is in order before we go on rides and stick an extra tube in my back pocket since I am a rather negligent bicycle caretaker.  He buys me flowers but they usually have earth and a pot attached so we can plant them in our garden or keep them for the indoors.

Absolutly!  He still opens the car door for me every time we get into the car together.  I seriously thought he would stop by now but he doesn’t.

Absolutely. He’s a very thoughtful, respectful person in general, but he also compliments me, pulls out chairs, opens doors, and offers his hand, and he has literally carried me over puddles. He’s a pretty romantic guy, haha. 🙂

Yes absolutely 🙂 It’s one of things that attracted me in the first place and still continues to attract me to him. He always opens doors, carries bags etc. He is from Poland and I think it ‘s a cultural thing (and the fact his mama taught him well!).

My FH definitely is a gentleman. I noticed it on our first date! He opens every door, stands when I stand (and doesn’t sit until I sit), walks on the outside on the sidewalk and he always puts me first. In fact, we were out for breakfast with a good friend (make) recently and when the server came to take our orders she asked The Guy first and he, as always, let me go first. When the server walked away our friend said, “I KNEW when she asked you to order first you wouldn’t like that!”

So yes, he’s very chivalrous and I really like it – it makes me feel special!

My hubby isn’t so much a gentleman in “those” ways. He doesn’t open doors, walk on the inside, etc. very often. But he treats me so well, always offers to bring me food, drinks, tucks me in at night…he’s perfect. 🙂
