The Art of Chivalry

Chivalry is not dead. Hold the door open for her, let her have the window seat, and put your phone away. Give her your undivided attention and you might just find that there really is life away from technology. Her glass is empty, so fill it up. Someone is clearing the table, but she hasn’t finished, so tell them to stop. Your food has arrived, but hers hasn’t, so wait to start eating. Remember that desserts can be sensuous, so insist that she has the last bite before you end the evening.

Always offer to pay, especially on the first date and immediately reach for the check. It’s courteous, polite, and shows that you are a gentleman. If she offers to split the bill or leave the tip, don’t let her. And don’t play hard to get. If the date went well, suggest a second date. When the date is over, walk her to her car. After the date, call or text her to make sure she gets home safely. 

Being a chivalrous gentleman is not something to be turned on and off when the situation suits you, it’s a way of life! This applies to female friends, family members and love interests alike. Chivalry is sexy and enhances intimacy with a significant other. It shows a woman that you respect her and makes her feel that she is a priority. After all, everyone woman wants to be loved and feel special.

Chivalry is romantic. April showers bring May flowers and so should men...maybe. It all depends on the situation and frankly, the woman. This is why having a Matchmaker can make all the difference. They know your date and can guide you through the dating process, so you come out smelling like a rose!
