    And who says chivalry is dead? :-/ Totally don`t agree with the last thing on the list. I mean, part of the reason I had the girlfriend I had was because I`m that kind of guy. I don`t want to be a jerk. The guys that compare just how many women they`ve slept with and then dumped just make me sick. How can some guys be that uncaring about girls?

    just my two cents worth.

    "Women want a good-looking, arrogant non-nice individual to treat them like crap. You may think that’s overly-misogynistic, but it’s a scientifically proven fact* that once a woman finds out you are attracted to her, her level of attraction towards you drops by at least 50%."
    Well if you ignore a woman she will get completely beserk. But if she doesn`t really care about how she looks then she will not behave like that. Again Internet sayings are not to be trusted!

    Face it, chivalry is dead. The only people who think otherwise are inexperienced teens (emotionally or by age).

    Either they`re boys who wish they`d be as succesful as the selfish idiot who gets all the girls and thus pretend to be "better". Or they`re girls who like to pretend they are deep and emotional, longing for a chivalrous lover, while at the same time they`re with said idiot weight lifter.

    Once you get a chance to live out your chivalry fantasy you`ll be back to the non-nice individual that treats you like poo. Stop lying to yourselves and face the truth ;)

    But: "you find me a chick who doesn’t at least have her belly button pierced yet, and I’ll show you a chick who hasn’t yet reached her eighth birthday"

    If you find the writer a girl without a belly button pierced, he`ll show you a 7-year-old girl..?

    Motorcycles are still cool. He neglects to mention the lower-middle class working class gearheads who spend their free time at the dump collecting junk and riding kind-of fixed up second-hand motorbikes from the 70`s/80`s.

    They might be faggy in the US, but they`re still damn manly here.

    lol interesting views on chivalry people.

    1) Whoever spoke about women`s equality, etc. Exactly if you want to be treated equal in work, etc. Then don`t expect to be paid for or coddled as was considered proper a long time ago. You can`t have the best of both worlds.

    Everyone wants chivalry but they don`t think about when chivalry was developed and used. You know back before the women`s rights movements of the 19th century when a woman couldn`t live by herself and if she had no guy in her life to tell her how to live it, then her employer even gave her housing and reserved part of her income (if she was single, she had to work) so she would have spending money because women were considered too stupid to take care of themselves.

    But hey, if you want to be treated like an idiot, then fine, want it.

    As far as women going for "ass holes" it`s true because the a-hole gives the woman a challenge, something interesting. As opposed to the guy that will bow to her every wish, smother her with attention, and verbally appease her every thought.

    You see everything has it`s place, there`s a time to be sweet, etc. (but that`s for both sexes) and there`s a time to be witty, sarcastic, challenging, interesting, and in general fun to be around.
    Some guys (and girls) take this stuff (sarcasm, etc) to the extreme and they`re non-nice individuals and bltches. A balance of the two is healthy, but unfortunately people usually go to one extreme or the other and never find a happy middle ground. So then you get the stereotype that "nice guys finish last" etc. It`s not that they finish last, it`s that they`re no fun, at all. They`re too serious and too nice. Girls get this, that`s how guys become "best friends" because they`re just too nice and the spark of attraction

    The about chivalry is surrounding Doctor Phill if you have time to have some laughs. Mid 30`s women go to Doc Phil because they are still single and don`t know what to do. The fact is most of them want to pay the bill or share dinner expenses. They ask too many questions including "what`s your bank account like?" and yes Doctor Phill tells them if they want a man in their lives let the man be THE MAN!

    THIS ARTICLE MAKES ME WANT TO TRASH MY COMPUTER.

    I don`t understand why people have to say things like what`s said in the article.

    ha!
    This is a bunch of bullpoo.
    Oh?
    It`s not?
    hm.
    Let`s just agree to disagree in this subject.

    Tattoos: Self-expression.

    Piercings: Self-expression.

    Motorcycles: Plain fun! And I still let the man drive.

    Stabbing: When was this right, again? I seem to have forgotten.

    Leather: I`ve never liked a man in leather anyways.

    And Chivalry: My bubby brings me fresh cut roses all the time, and my wall is full of sweet, make-you-cry poems, and he still sings to me sweet lovesongs when I`m feeling down to bring me back into his arms.

    This article is WHACK.

    Chivalry works in the long run.

    I`ll admit that about 4 of my girlfriends started out as friends. I really don`t get that whole "just" friends thing.

    If I just wanted sex or one night stands they`re easy to come by, and hell even if they`re not there are a few girls who hang around near the ramada hotel, and $40 is cheaper than a meal for two.

    It all depends on what you want. For what I want, chivalry has worked just fine.

    By the way, I think you`re talking about the kind of chivalry that`s false. I`m chivalrous/romantic when it comes to people I care about.

    I don`t go out giving roses to every girl in the hopes she`ll go out with me. *That* would be slimy, not chivalrous.

    On the other hand I`ve pretended to be several girl`s boyfriend in order to stave off unwanted attention. I always offer to walk(or drive) a girl home, etc.

    I understand in most cases a girl doesn`t need my help. Chivalry in my opinion for the most part merely lets her know you are there if she wants you to be. It encompasses a lot more beyond poems and roses.

    The whole thing about the tattoos... it all really depends on what sort of tattoo you get, and why. Same for piercings. It`s just that a lot of people have copied others, and therefore, brought certain aspects of body modification into the mainstream. Unfortunately, all other forms--scarification/branding, for instance--have been looked down upon by society, as tattoos were back in the day. You can`t very well have your cake and eat it too with body mods. You can`t be individual without risking your ability to get a job or not be scrutinized by stuck-up soccer moms.

    well IMHO I think offering to drive girls home (safety and distance stuff) and acting like a bf so a dude leaves her alone is just a general nice person thing to do, I don`t know if I`d define it as classic chivalry is but it is defiantly a modern version of it.

    I agree there`s a difference in being nice and being `slimy/sleazy` or a suck up/kiss ass that`s hoping to buy a girl with gifts.

    Broken links aren`t manly either.

    Does anyone know where else to find the article? My googling has been unsuccessful.

    I agree about chivalry.

    Reason I took a vow of celibacy.

    No matter what I do; I can never "get the girl". As well, I become an non-nice individual; all of a sudden, I`m either a poser or a very very bad person.

    Damn, I wish suicide was a legal way (religiously) to go. My life is meaningless.

    this is so true, it`s actually kind of sad. the thing is there are two people who are into stuff like this, the people who really know it, and people who see the first type and say, `wow he`s cool imma be like him`.

    eg. stabbing - originally psycho masterminds, now 14 year old gangstas.
    same sort of thing with bikes, piercings, tattoos... not chivalry, it`s dead guys, sorry. best way to get a girl = don`t be a weightlifting douchebag, don`t be a romantic douchebag, be normal. care but don`t worship.

    lol I am so not manly... that`s all the things I love, but then again, I come from another country, those things are still not uncool... plus, it all depends who, how, and whatever... like, some tatoos can still be cool if well... the tattoo has some meaning... bikes now require speed to be manly... and stabing (one of my favorite past times) is cool if you do it in a cool way (is pretty much the KNIFE itself had become uncool, not so much the stabing... with a samurai sword, in an awsome sword fight or something... still cool... but not if you use it in a pussy kind of way, like "crap, I can`t take this guy- stab- job`s done" no no no... stabing can be cool... ninjas (and snake) stabing people is still cool, but using a sword makes it much better)

    "I agree about chivalry.

    That and no one will sleep with you, right?
    j/k, don`t take that seriously.

    Anyways, here’s what I think:

    Tattoos: Nothing wrong with them unless you’re some dope who just picks a design from the wall. Getting something unique that means something to you is the whole point.

    Piercing: I always thought they looked fem.

    Stabbing: Something being phallic makes it less manly? I thought the idea of sticking something in someone until they die was the epitome of the male ego.

    Motorcycles: They’re still manly if you work on them yourself.

    Leather: Only non-manly if you wear the Mr. Slave outfit or something.

    Chivalry: Only non-manly if you’re in high school. More mature women appreciate a decent charming guy. Plus it can get you laid and what’s manlier than that?

    You can tell the difference between a “manly” tattoo and a “non-manly tattoo” I am pretty sure. At least I hope you can. If you can’t, at least keep your mouth shut.
    Multiple piercings - it was never about the amount of the piercings involved. It was how obviously they opposed whatever was generally accepted. Now people are stretching out their earlobes and studding up their faces to garner attention. That’s not manly. But like the tattoo, it’s easy to tell the difference between a manly piercing and a non-manly piercing.

    Now, about Chivalry - speaking as a woman (for I am female) I understand that many women these days would rather be seen as one of the guys - except prettier and with big boobs. But by all means, this does not account for a majority of the population. Just because we don’t respond like Snow White did to Prince Charming in the Disney animated moving picture, does not mean we’re not looking for honor and loyalty. However, we’re wise enough these days to know that being “courted” is a means to an end. Few men are chivalrous for chivalry’s sake - or even know what chivalry means. Chivalry was the idea of valuing a woman’s virtue, purity and loveliness - this means, if a man was chivalrous, he’d never think of spoiling her with untoward advances, or even impure thoughts. So Chivalry is not a means to sex, love, and happily ever after. Chivalry is the art of restraint. A chivalrous man would protect his chosen woman, but never think of marrying

    Moving on. Now we come to motorcycles. No, a Yamaha is not manly - it’s a Japanese brand, no way in hell it’d be manly. The Japanese have always had an association with androgyny (kabuki theatre, anyone?) A Harley can still be manly, depends on how it’s ridden and who is doing the riding. Just because the man in the seat is not manly, does not make the muscle-bike any less a man symbol. You see a Harley, you still expect to see a grizzled old biker there.

    You forgot the muscle cars. One upon a time, the Mustang and the Jaguar were symbols of prosperity, masculinity, and the American Dream. Now, you still find them in possession of America’s Golden Boys, but they’re the children of the people who chased the American Dream, the ones who were born with a silver foot in their mouths. The wusses who wouldn’t last more than two minutes in an actual street fight.

    Leather. Leather is still manly. It’s rugged, very sexual, and daring. What is unmanly is pleather, or PVC. Need I say more?

    What about stabbing people? Nicking someone’s finger with a penknife is not manly. Waving a machete at someone is just plain insane. A perfectly good rumble is still manly. Switchblades are still tokens of manhood, and fathers still give their sons knives when they come of age.

    Shooting people? That’s the pussy’s way out, these days. You don’t have to get close to your opponent, you’re not looking in the eye, and unless he has an Uzi, he definitely has less of a chance of killing you. Guns are the woman’s method of choice too. Try googling Margret Rudin. She’s just one example.

    It used to be manly to be successful in a corporate or commercial setting. Now it’s all about the pretty people, or the ones with the most savvy. Cowboys used to be manly. Being gangster (not gangsta, I’m talking Old Mob Gangster - 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s - Al Capone and Lupkey and Dopey) used to be manly. Now you have these posers from New York who think that wearing G-Unit and busting a rhyme on the sidewalk means you’re rough. Government agents (of the .007 variety) used to be manly - the James Bond men once ruled supreme in the field of masculinity. Now we’re suspicious of them tapping our phones and reading our e-mails.

    Smoking - used to be bad-ass. Now it’s bad for you and people are trying to outlaw it. Oh well.

    Drinking - used to be bad-ass. Now anyone who can hold their liquor is called an alcoholic. Who would have thought?

    I could go on, but I have to get ready - my (male) friend is taking me out to dinner (his treat, his ride, his money) and I can’t wait for him to see my short, unfeminine-yet-oh-so-womanly, close-cropped hair. Short hair isn`t for the boys anymore
