Thread: Guy, do you open car door for your GF/Wife?

  1. #1

    Default Guy, do you open car door for your GF/Wife?

    Guy, do u open car door for your GF/Wife?
    Yes/No?

    Girl, would you prefer your BF/Husband to do so?

    Well, normally I'll take initiative to open the car door for my GF because I think this is an gentleman to serve the lady no matter her hand carrying stuffs or not. Some people say women and men are equal therefore women should open the car door for themselves not depend on BF. Some people also say this thing only happen in movies but not in real life. What you guys think?

    I am not a fan of feminism especial 3rd wave radical feminism today in the west but this moderate feminist write something that just about says it all. Anyone that use the old tired saying of gentlemen standard need to go do some real research on how it all got started and why. Don't even get me started on this bs. heh. BTW.. these day you even have feminist women accusing all males of being a sexist for opening the door for her. Do what i do, be courteous to everyone that need a helping hand and have them be courteous to you. I have no problem for example holding a door I just enter or help keep a door open to let those behind me even if they are younger then me. I give way because it is the right thing to do not because I think he or she is ENTITLED and PRIVILEGED TO DO SO.

    Doing it just shows good manners. Just do it.
    However, there are women who do not want to wait for the door to be opened. It's the man's job to figure that one out early.

    Only when I want her to leave.
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    I think bus captains are the nicest people around. They open door for everyone.

    It is just being gentleman to open the door if both of you are going the same way towards the car. If you are the driver seat and you got to come out and walk around the car to open the door for her while she stands waiting by the side, she must be nuts. If she is carrying something or needs help then different story lah.

    What I actually cannot understand is those couples that have their wife to drive them to work, then at the busy driveway exchange hugs and kisses before they change driver, adjust seats, mirror, etc while the whole line of cars behind wait. This is Singapore, you drive max 23 Km to your designation, do you really need to change driver?
