Dark Ariel7 Posted July 15, 2014 Author Share Posted July 15, 2014 Should girls get special treatment from men? I guess probably not. It's not required, but it would be Nice to do. I try to be make things fair as much as I can.. ex: paying for my half of the meal, or paying it all because they paid the last time. Help them out, when they help me out. I try not to take advantage. But honestly, if a guy acted like a gentleman (mostly Nice) to me... then I'd see him in a better light, and may like him more in a romantic sense. Politeness, Respectfulness & being Nice is attractive to me. Acting like a gentleman is close to that. So personally, I don't think men are required to be 'gentlemans' but it's not a bad thing to act like one either. I wouldn't outwardly demand men to act nice to me or w/e just because I'm a girl, but of course I would be happy if they were nice to me anyways.. why wouldn't anyone want to be treated well? It's really up to the guy if he wants to act/appear a gentleman or not. When girls demand it, it's just the gender expectation / social pressures they are used to I guess... but of course, girls have their own social expectations of acting like a proper 'lady' or w/e. To be honest, I actually enjoy the system. I like treating girls well. I have old timely romanticism in my head. The only reason why I find myself asking the question is because there is as of late an extreme lack of balance in the system now. "Ladies" at my school taught it proper and appropriate to, in great detail, discuss their toiletries in the middle of class in very, yes I do mean very, loud voice. Even so they expect guys to do things for them and treat them as if though they are ladies. I am on the fence on treating every person well. I treat people with a hint of indifference until I am given a reason not to. I do not treat people with respect. That said neither do I disrespect them. I just felt that people think that I mean to be rude to people just because you are not acting like a gentleman. It does not mean that you have to act like a cretin. Also, I think we can all agree that none of this applies when you like a person. Friends, especially girlfriends, are to be treated with love. Not with crappy formalities. If those formalities serve as a way for you to express love, though then that is fine too. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
