Do guys here hold doors open for ladies?

Just saw a couple leaving Starbucks and the dude left her hanging.

Wow that could be dangerous/potentially fatal at Fivebucks.   Major potential for hot beverage spillage and/or scalding.....

 

Yes, I would almost always hold a door for someone I was with.

My father was a gentleman. I've opened doors even for people who probably didn't deserve it.

Re: Do guys here hold doors open for ladies?

Almost always, yes. I had an ex girlfriend that would get mad at me for doing it, claiming I was flirting with them. And that's part of the reason why she's my ex.

Re: Do guys here hold doors open for ladies?

Absolutely! It's just common courtesy. I always open and close the car door for a lady and hold the door open for the person behind me when going in or out of a building.

Absolutely... I also get burnt for holding the door too long sometimes.

I am female, but I always hold the door open for people coming behind me or for elderly people. I will go out of my way to help someone who is in some way challenged (visually impaired, wheelchair or walker user, carrying an armful of things, stroller, etc...)

 

As a female, I apppreciate the gesture whenever it is offered, and I will say thank you.

Re: Do guys here hold doors open for ladies?

I too find myself always holding the door open for anyone who is around it's just common curdousy if you ask me.  Then again I ususally still say Yes Sir No Sir or ma'am everywhere I go too.  Just the way I was raised I guess.  I also find that people for the most part not always tend to treat you a little better also when you do that!
