Re: Do guys here hold doors open for ladies?

[ Edited ]

When traveling in the car, sometimes I open the passenger door for my wife, sometimes not.  If I am entering a building, I open the door for her to walk inside and then enter behind.  I don't usually hold the door for people walking behind me, unless they are immediately behind me and we are both at the door anyway.

 

Personally, I don't like it when someone who is more than a few paces in front of me pauses at the door and holds it open waiting for me to get there.  I am a soldier in the United States Army.  I can open the door myself, thank you.

If they are hot, then yes.

 

If they are not, then no.

 

If they are old, then yes.

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.


Jealousy is such an ugly emotion.

Ever get that one female who said: "I can open my own door."

 

Doesn't that just make your day?

Re: Do guys here hold doors open for ladies?

Yeah and they usually say it oh so rudely.... after they have walked through the open door :smileytongue:

 

I generally hold the door open for anyone closely behind me or reaching a door in front of me.  It is simple respect...  Now while driving... no comment  :smileymad:

Re: Do guys here hold doors open for ladies?

Wish I could say I join in this train of thought, but my father always taught me to open doors to the "non-hot" ones as well, because you never knew if they had hot friends they could introduce you to.

Frug,

 

The reply in that situation is:

 

"Well, I am sure you can.  But when someone holds the door open for ME, I usually just say thank you".  

 

That has the double effect of taking the man/woman aspect out of the equation and reducing it to common courtesy as well as reminding them that they were being rude. :smileyhappy:

Re: Do guys here hold doors open for ladies?

No one's ever pulled the "I can open my own door!" line, LOL! If faced with the situation, I'd politely explain that being treated like a lady is a good thing and that femininity shouldn't be sacrificed to advance feminism. :smileyhappy:
