Do you care if a guy opens the door for you? If he pulls your chair out at dinner? Well a British dating site, DatingDirect.com, surveyed 1,000 British men, and whether you like it or not they enjoy being chivalrous. According to the Times of London, 56% of British dudes "enjoy" paying for dinner on a date, and 34% of men will "frequently defend a woman's honour." There's also an accompanying video to the Times article, where a dowdy middle aged British lady, relationship psychologist Susan Quilliam, says things like "even though women want to be equal and we don't want to be patronized," those little chivalrous gestures are what "makes life more worth living!" Woa there, lady. I'm not going to lie, like many of you, I am a "cursory purse grabber" who likes a dude to pay on the first date. But I wouldn't say that's what makes life worth living.
