How rare is it in this day and age for a guy to just stop and let you pass when walking? How often has a guy, who’s not your boyfriend, opened a door for you just to be polite? Maybe this just happens to me ‘cause people don’t like me but it rarely happens. And when I look at our generation, I think that it’s very sad. How hard is it for a guy to open a door and then stand back and allow you to pass without any ulterior motives?
Of course this doesn’t apply to everyone. I know a few guys who still do that, even for girls they don’t know and I think it’s the sweetest thing ever. Especially when they’re really humble about it. I sometimes hear guys ask what they get from opening a door or even doing little things for girls. And my response is, the satisfaction of knowing that you still have some redeeming qualities. I mean really, how far in life do you think ‘swag’ will get you? How much respect do you think that you’ll get? Please, re-evaluate your life.

Now I'm not saying that guys are the only ones that need to re-evaluate their lives. As a girl I can honestly say, sometimes we don’t act like ‘ladies’. A lot of us are feminists but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I also don’t see anything wrong with wanting to be pampered every now and then. Some of us are more sensitive than others. At no point in time do I think that girls will fully understand boys nor will boys fully understand girls but I don’t think we were meant to. I think we still need to surprise each other every now and then.

Back to the ladies issue though. Some of us really don’t behave as well as we should, I can admit that. I mean sure we curse, and scream and stomp our feet like 5 years old but most of us are good. We just have our moments that just make us a little bit more vicious than usual.

Long story short. Both sexes can improve on certain things that we do. And we can all learn something from one another, so just try to be a better person all round.

  1. We've been told by third wave feminists that it's sexist to hold the door open for a woman. I still do it, because f**k them. ;)
