While dating, do you question who should pay for dinner? Here are three reasons why men should pay for the date!
When you think of dating on college campuses, you rarely think of romance. But these two guys from Toronto remind us that it's still alive and kicking. The duo went on a surprise-serende adventure across college classrooms in their city.

Are you tired of going from hookup to hookup? Are you wondering if chivalry is dead, after all? If so, help is on the way.
Have a plan for the date gentlemen and hold loosely to it in case of rain, she could express a strong dislike for what you have planned —e.g. "I'm allergic to the smell of coffee," so you compromise for the teahouse instead — or something unexpected happens.
I’m starting to realize it is the rare man who is actually a “gentleman”. Yes, I consider myself a feminist and a strong woman. But I am also … a “lady”. I believe you can be both at the same time. I want to believe that there are men out there who can appreciate a strong woman who knows what she wants AND who likes to be treated like a “lady”. By “lady” I don’t mean being treated with kid-gloves or holding back a curse word or two. I mean a gentleman who is genuine and kind and who really feels it an honor to be spending time with his date … and shows it.
For some reason I think men have forgotten their manners or they just weren’t taught them, but opening a door for a woman should be mandatory. It isn’t that hard to open a door when you see a women with groceries or even just her hand bag! Are we teaching the men of this generation right?

Men. The word alone evokes emotions of love, hate, annoyance, frustration and more. And why shouldn't it? In my experience, they're pretty much the hardest gender to get along with.
Chivalry still means a man being kind and courteous in the presence of and at the service of any woman he encounters throughout his day. At the most personal level, it's about treating your wife and special ladies in your life (daughter, mother, sisters, grandmothers and aunts) with reverence and love…ever endeavoring to do things - great and small - to let them know they are special. Chivalry isn't about getting things in return.
It seems we're perpetutally trying to answer this question: Is chivalry truly dead? And if not, should it be? In Jenna Birch's recent article "10 Chivalrous Acts That Make Women Melt," she discusses the long-lost art of chivalry. Basic acts, such as holding doors for women, have become all-too rare, according to Birch. In response, one male reader wrote this: "So, women want to be treated just like men—except when they don't."
I find chivalry to be a gorgeous thing. Most women I know are a little like that. We love our modern independence in life and in love, but deep down, we love when guys treat us like ladies. As women in their twenties will attest, it's become increasingly rare. Case in point: My friend gushingly told me the other day that a man had been ultra-polite. ("See that guy? He held the door for me ... Like, awwww!") Gentlemanly behavior sets our hearts aflutter. We want to see it, and many of us are waiting on it.
Some women like some chivalry some of the time: examples. Some Republicans are okay with birth control. Why do married fellas like porn? Can guys really have multiple orgasms? His favorite sexual position is a bit of a surprise. Stop falling into the same old dating patterns. Don't let intrusive newlywed questions get you down. $10 spring date plans.

The dating world is one of games. We are taught all sorts of ways to hide or thoughts and feelings. All sorts of ways to make one thing look another way. And so, when we meet someone who doesn't play by the rules, we often think, 'What is wrong with this person? You can't just…say that!'
Everybody manscape now. What was your first time like? What is the first year of marriage "really" like? The importance of sexual chemistry. The truth about being a bridesmaid.
