Before you understand how to be chivalrous in these modern times, you need to know what a woman expects from a man and what you can do to be that man.
Reflecting back on medieval times, can a man really be that chivalrous today or would that just be considered stupid? Unfortunately, the men of today don’t know what that legacy was all about, and most men have no idea about the revered Code of the Knights. On one hand, they swoon over men who show the slightest bit of chivalry, and on the other, women seem to be killing chivalry slowly! Back in the days of yore, men knew how to be chivalrous.

The best way to make a woman feel comfortable around you is to hang out in a setting that is most familair to her. It's a sign of respect that ultimately reflects on you, especially when she notices that you don't just do it for her, you do it for others as well. When a man calls you, don't wait three rings to answer the phone or let it ring to voice mail first before waiting an hour to call back. If you're among those always complaining about how men always text and never call, there's a pretty good chance it's because you never answer your phone or return his phone calls. Throw him a bone and give him permission to take the reigns if that is what you want him to do, especially if you're tired of holding on the reigns of your daily life.
