To my pleasant surprise I was in the company, of a very gallant suitor over the weekend. Not only was I impressed by his personality, but just the sheer enjoyment he seemed to have at courting me and spending time with me. So often, we are misled into thinking that great guys with old school morals aren’t out there. Last night, I found out there are real men who are willing to make a bigger impression than just spending their money on you. Or trying to hop into the sack!
I found myself, immersed in conversation that was titillating, open, and intellectual! Refreshing was more the word to describe it. And, it was great! As a woman living in the year 2010, I enjoy my right to independence. But, as we discussed last night, there is still much to be said for gender roles. Are we old fashioned or is it that some things never really change? Do women and men long for the days of old? Didn’t this make things a whole lot easier? At the risk of sounding extremely cliché, I really wouldn’t mind being whisked off one day by a handsome prince who wants to put me under his wing.
Nowadays, anything is better than a man who wants you to go dutch and goes through the door first, allowing it to smack you right on your ass as you’re attempting the sexy first date strut. So, which suits you better? Chivalry or 2010 dating?
