I have nothing against the 'classic' man when it comes to romanticism. I mean how could I? It's done out of respect and I'd never color it as chauvinism. I just wish some men wouldn't tell others that all of this is necessary.
I'm really Connecticut so I've only ever met a few southern boys but I always know them by the way they treat me lol. Not to say northern boys are rude, I just notice a higher frequencies in "you hungry/thirsty?" or just "what do you want?"- never mind that we just ate twice, if he's eating, I'm eating. And the jogging to the door ahead of me to open it, pulling out chairs- it's nice but I wouldn't say someone isn't good to me because they don't do things like that.
To each their own of course.
