Being A Good Knight

Chivalry used to connote the characteristics of knighthood. It meant being courteous to women and being gallant.

Women believe that they can live without men, it's hard for guys to realize that ladies do want to be treated like princesses. 

And I don't blame men for thinking that women want to be treated like strong, independent people, because they are. Men are faced with a double standard where they know women want to be swept off their feet, and want and expect men to make the first move, but at the same time, they preach that they are strong and can be single for the rest of their lives.

What men don't understand is that women want to be treated well, and want to be placed up on a pedestal. This treatment does not lessen their strength or independence, but it's up to women to show that they want this treatment.

So does being chivalrous worth it? 

Chivalry isn't about getting things in return. It's about being recognized to a degree for your actions and knowing that the person you are with will also treat you right.

Another note --- chivalry is a two-way street, in which you shouldn't be taken for a ride.
