What She Really Wants

Is giving up your seat a show of respect or an act of outdated chauvinism? A panel of actual women tell all!

Have you ever found yourself entering a building and wondering whether you should hold the door for that woman approximately 10 feet behind you? Or sitting on the subway and trying to decide whether it would be appropriate to give up your seat for that cute girl that just got on? You're not alone.

In this day and age, that fine line between being a gentleman and looking like a jackass has become more and more hazy. A lot of guys truly want to do the right thing - they just don't know what it is. And complicating matters more is the fact that there is very little information out there on how to handle these situations.

Esquire magazine has recently come out with a brilliant article that attempts to answer these and other questions. This is one of those Cosmo-like articles for guys, but it's actually well worth the thirty-second read.

Also note that any of these situations can lead to openings for conversation - except maybe a woman crying.

Funny story about a crying woman though. About a week or so ago, while in San Diego, I jumped out of my car to give the person waiting for my spot a parking permit that had time remaining on it. Figured I'd do the nice thing and save them ten or fifteen bucks.

I offer the permit and realize the driver is a sobbing hottie. She proceeds to tell me how her boyfriend just dumped her (we just met and I'm her therapist?) and she was going out with some friends. I could have taken advantage of this, but I'm a nice guy and was in a rush. I gave her the ticket and she offered me half of what was left on it. I responded, "No thanks, have a better night," and walked away.

Chivalry or stupidity?
