Chivalry is dead. Women killed it.
Competitive Advantage: Chivalry And The Modern Man
James Michael Sama
Gentlemen, your time has come.
The time you have been waiting for, is here, and the time for action is now.
Women are tired and fed up. They are fed up with little boys masquerading as men. Little boys who leave them wanting, unappreciated, and unsatisfied.
Little boys who do not understand their wants, needs, and desires. And, they are speaking out.
By speaking out, they are calling your name. They are calling out for those of you who understand what it is to treat a good woman as she deserves. The dawn of the New Chivalry Movement is upon us.
So, what now?
Now – you need to make sure you’re on your game by mastering these basics to chivalry and etiquette. Lost arts in our generation, but not so lost that they are unrecognized when they are resurrected. Their presence makes a statement, and is appreciated.
Walk on the street-side of the sidewalk.
The purpose of this lost art is to show your willingness to be splashed instead of a woman should a passing car run through a puddle. Furthermore, in some countries people would throw trash out of windows, and the person walking closer to the building, was less likely to be hit.
It’s an effortless way to show her that you care.
When in a restaurant, follow behind her when being led to your table.
In a mixed group, all of the women will follow the maître d’ and the men will follow behind them.
When in a crowded environment such as a party or a nightclub, have her follow behind you.
You should be navigating and clearing a path for her, not the other way around.
Extend your arm so she can hook hers into it, when entering or exiting a social function or occasion.
Pull out her chair.
Insist she order first when approached for dinner or drinks.
Rise out of your chair a bit when she arrives to, or leaves the table.
After an evening together, escort her all the way home to ensure a safe arrival.
Make sure that each of these acts appear natural, and as second nature. There is no romance in pushing the maître d’ out of the way to pull out your date’s chair.
The above points are a simple start to a long discussion, but one would be surprised how many of them are forgotten, or overlooked.
By making the small amount of extra effort to perform these basic actions, the modern man can successfully separate himself from the crowd.
Your move, gentlemen.
