Chivalry makes women 'suspicious'Posted on: January 18, 2013 13:57:19
Female UK singles who long for their very own knight in shining armour could in fact be pushing away their dream man, as many women are becoming increasingly suspicious of kind-hearted gestures made by the opposite sex.
For men out there with traditional values who still open a door for a woman, stand up before a person sits down at the table and always insist on paying for the date, it is likely to come as a blow that instead of having more luck in love, women are instead shunning them.
According to new research, chivalrous acts were once the definition of what made a true gent, but are today being frowned upon and even being seen as cause for suspicion among women in the country.
Mark Hall, gentleman creation officer at socked.co.uk, said the reason women are more inclined to distrust men with manners than in the past is because standards have slipped and good behaviour has become lost.
"Does an offer of goodwill have to be taken the wrong way? If men upped their game across the board, good manners would be back on the agenda once again," he said.
The survey came out with some rather surprising statistics, as the majority of women were found to prefer to pay on a first date, and more than half of respondents were even happy to pay for the entire bill.
As many as 92 per cent of women asked in the poll claimed they wouldn't take a seat that was offered to them by a man, 89 per cent would turn down a helping hand with their bags and 78 per cent admitted they would decline the offer of a coat from a member of the opposite sex on a cold day.
"We've forgotten about good behaviour, and it's high time gentlemen stood up to be counted - especially on a crowded bus," Mr Hall concluded.
