Everyone tells you what not to eat on the first date. Often they’re foods that are messy, phallic, or make your date feel like he’s dining with a rabbit.

Chivalry in Our Times Today

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.
