The words of the song by Arville Lavigne gives me pause.
The song that starts with a chanting and then she starts asking question like where the girl has to keep telling the guy to open the door for her and the girl had to pay for herself the drinks they had.
Is chivalry really dead or just that it's an observation by the young singer/songwriter extraordinaire on relationship in general?
Another question, does all girls/women expect this, especially in Malaysia?
I have a few friends who ask me not to forget to hold doors for ladies coming behind after me. I did managed to impress my wife when we were dating by opening the car door for her. I rarely do it anymore.
Opening car door that is. The opening of doors is automatic for me nowadays.
I did try to do it to strangers but most of the time its either they were too surprised or they look embarrassed that someone is doing that for them. Basically most just smile. Then they walk away really fast. Maybe they thought I'm going to ask for their number.
To me the holding of doors is a valid complaint by a lady (girl?) like Avril but the paying for the drinks part?
Isn't that what women has been fighting for? Equal rights and all?
