Many men have stated that although they believe in chivalry, they feel they are making futile attempts at being courteous when their actions go unnoticed and unappreciated by females. On one hand you have a woman who waits for the man to walk ahead of her and open the door, while on the other you have the gentleman who does open the door for her, only to have his date shout at him that she doesn't need his help. Do women really want you to be chivalrous or better yet, is she worth it? Unfortunately, kindness to strangers has become a rarity, with people slamming doors in people's faces, and pushing in line at the checkout counter — and both men and women are guilty of this. Because common courtesy doesn't exist as much anymore, it makes us suspicious when we do receive kind gestures from others, and we assume kindness is part of someone's ulterior motives. A common fallacy among men and women is that chivalry is one-sided, which means that a woman can also take the initiative and do something chivalrous for her man, especially since the times have changed. You want to put yourself out for a woman who is worthy of such royal treatment, since this says a lot about her personality. The problem is that it's hard to tell whether or not the woman you are stressing over deserves your efforts of chivalry. Here's how to tell if your lady can also be a gentle wo man:  If you open the car door for her and she unlocks your door once she's inside. She offers to split the bill at the fancy restaurant you went to for dinner (or even better, she pays for it once in a while if she doesn't pay for it, she pays for your movie ticket after dinner).  Catch the 411 talk zone radio show every Saturday from 12 noon - 2 pm.
