    It's alive!

    I always open the door for SLW and almost always open the car for her to get in.
    I usually do the coat thingy but Philly is right, sometimes I don't get it right and
    she just takes it out of my hands.

    No cigs for SLW so I don't have to worry about that one. :D

    That's cause you're a newlywed. You're still having smurf sex. Just wait till you're having hallway sex, then you'll be singing a different tone.

    The 1st kind of sex is Smurf Sex. This kind of sex happens when you
    first meet someone and you both have sex until you are blue in the face.

    The 2nd kind of sex is Kitchen Sex. This is when you have been with
    your partner for a short time and you are so horny you will have sex
    anywhere, even in the kitchen.

    The 3rd kind of sex is Bedroom Sex. This is when you have been with
    your partner for a long time. Your sex has gotten routine and you
    usually have sex in your bedroom.

    The 4th kind of sex is Hallway Sex. This is when you have been with
    your partner for too long. When you pass each other in the hallway
    you both say...."Fuck you"

    Standing and handling a woman's chair: Check
    Opening doors: Check
    Holding coats: Check
    Lighting cigarettes: Check, although a bit out of practice

    Spending the night with a $5000 hooker: Priceless

    :D

    I subscribe to the wisdom of Elwood P. Dowd:
    "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" - she always called me Elwood - "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me."
    Chivalry is an extension of being pleasant. :)

    I was just bemoaning the fact that I hate my current job. $5,000 a night, you say?

    Oh...and people that start eating their food even though everyone has not yet been served. I never do...and then when it is noticed and the person waiting for their dinner tells me to go ahead and eat I love the sudden contortions of logic the other zealous eaters give as to why it was okay for them to begin eating. I usually just smile and nod and tell them of course they are right (but why the zeal over the rubber chicken they're about to gnaw on anyway?)
    Sadly chivalry is pretty much dead. So is politeness. Being a smartass seems to be the preferred way to act. Shallow, thoughtless, snappy seem to be the norm.

    But SR wasn't kidding about the chivalry thing with him. He's a keeper. :D

    Appreciate your thoughtful thread.

    I think part of what makes them worth that amount of money is that they know when to say flattering things that are not deserved, and know when NOT to say unflattering things that ARE deserved. You may need some practice before you can aspire to that level. :D

    I wasnít raised to ignore the small courtesies that are supposed to be afforded women. My dad (The Chief) taught me all the right things to do, when, and how (as in not to make such a big deal out of it).

    Maybe an anachronism in present day - uncool, but I donít know any better.

    My girlfriend sometimes gets annoyed at me when I open a car door or help her with her coat as I don't think her generation is particularly used to it. That, however, doesn't deter me from doing so, as it comes so naturally to me.

    I love chivalry! I think it's great when guys do all the things you've mentioned, and I'm always sure to thank them.

    It is nothing against you to fall down flat, but to lie there - that's disgrace
