I was raised with very old fashioned standards. To me chivalry is perfectly natural. I was always curious why more men didn't do it. It doesn't cost
anything. Its not difficult. It doesn't hurt. It makes people happy. And it makes you feel good about yourself. Why not do it?
I open doors, hold chairs, help with coats, all the usual stuff. When we walk down the street I am on the curb side, not my wife. She isn't for sale,
and if one of us is going to get splashed or hit by something its going to be me.
I will also kiss a lady's hand, but I will do it properly. Its sad that most men don't even know there is a proper way to do it. When a gentlemen
kisses a lady's hand, he doesn't kiss the hand itself. A lady doesn't need a bunch of strange men slobbering all over her. Well, maybe once in a while
on a weekend... When a man kisses a lady's hand he doesn't kiss the hand itself, only the layer of air that touches it. If he truly respects and
adores her, that is good enough for him until she lets him go further.
I don't know if people still do that. My hand kissing days are over, except for my wife that is. (the romance doesn't end when you get married) I
suspect not. In todays world that is probably considered assault. What a shame.
