    I don't know about cute - Chivalrous, Gentlemanly, A nice thing to do.

    I'm 23, almost 24 years old. I was brought up to be kind and helpful for people - male or female, young or old - including holding doors. The car door doesn't happen often because they usually get to the door before I do.

    The problem is that you don't know what's going to happen. I'll use opening regular doors as an example.

    Men - generally say "thank you" and walk in. Never had one complain.

    Women - Never know. Sometimes they accept the gesture as what it is - being nice - say "thank you" and walk in. Other times they get offended and start in on the "I can open my own door!" type of thing.

    Feminists turned an issue of kindness and chivalry into equality. I still hold the door, and I've had older women say things like "Who says chivalry isn't dead?" when I do. I've also nearly had my head taken off by a banshee woman who thought I was making a statement on gender roles. I considered letting the door slam in her face, but I chose to continue holding it.

    Holding the door - for ANYONE - is a nice thing to do. Period.

    It is absolutely cute and it shows that chivalry is still alive I went out with a guy and was expecting to opening my own car door because you don't expect guys to do that these days but he opened it and that made me realize that there are good guys in the world and that chivalry it still around in 2013

    It's not 'cute', simply courteous ... it reflects to an era when the word 'manners' was still in the dictionary and in most people's vocabulary.

    It's a nice thing to do for someone. I see nothing wrong with it.

    I kind of like it when my husband takes the extra time to treat me like a lady. It doesn't happen very often, but he does open the doors for me, has me order first at restaurants, lends me an elbow when we are walking. At this last one, he is king. He does it most often when I am having a bad leg day, and walking really slowly. See, I am the slowest person that I know, and my husband, with his long ass legs, is among the fastest. So, to have him walk with me in the back of the group is extra special.

    Between the two choices - I chose "cute" -- because it definitely isn't "cheesy" -- it's polite, courteous, and good manners. I appreciate it -- when it happens.

    "Cute" isn't the word I would have chosen, but I always open the door for a gal. I see it as a sign of appreciation and respect.

    Actually, it's not 'cute', but a very polite thing to do. Here in Texas, a man holding a door open is customary, and for most women, appreciated.

    Opening a car door is cheesy I have arms I can do it myself!!!!! But any other door yes he should hold it for me! Its common courtesy! I hold the door for anyone coming & I expect them to hold the next door if there is a second one & usually they do. But again the car door no don't touch my car door it takes good long!

    It depends strictly and solely on WHO the LADY is in relation to the possible "Cheese Brain". For instance, I have seen Mexican Men between the Ages of 16 and 105 come up here from the Southern Border; through Illegal Border Entry" and because of their "Special Training" from El Presidente Caldreon's classes for 5th Grade Mexican Grads, they hold the door open on Buses that have been equipped with "Exit Treadles". They have no idea that the Treadle Pad that the Female passenger is standing on is what keeps the door from closing. So, is Caldreon training them for jobs that American Men don't want? [Barf Barf]

    Lousy options! It's got nothing to do with being cute. It has everything to do with being polite and respectful though.

    Not necessarily ..
    for when PARENTS .. real PARENTS ..
    show their children (with their actions)
    COURTESY .. RESPECT for others ..
    they learn that we walk the talk ..
    mean what we say ..
    and these OLD Courtesies are passed along ..
    into new generations
