"To boldly go"...

Most woman's and very often married guy-"friends" will bray an alarm.

youtu.be

Chivalry is often balanced with survival in this day and age.

"Making it more likely that the next generation of men will do poorly compared with women, the aforementioned women's advocacy groups plus others such as Girls Inc. and Soropotimists, have instituted Take your Daughter to Work Day in many more workplaces than Take your Son and Daughter to Work Day. A Google search is not comprehensive here, but it gives you a good indication of cultural emphasis: "Take Your Daughter to Work Day" revealed 570,000 links. A search on "Take Your Daughter and Son to Work Day" yielded only 14,000, and "Take your Son and Daughter to Work Day," 6,000."

I think the most attractive man isn't the most handsome, buff, smart, rich, whatever adjective we're supposed to look for in a man. (It certainly isn't about a knight on the white horse. Let's face it--most women today can and have been taking care of themselves for a while.)

It's the guy who is submitted to God, bold yet considerate in his pursuit, and fully in line with the faith. I think King David would be a perfect example--he was the last of Jesse's sons to even be considered to be the King, but we all know he was God's choice. Now, we all know he wasn't perfect, but he had the ear and heart of God, and was brave and passionate. These kind of men are becoming more rare...

I think that caliber of man is still out there, Claudine...if our brothers around here are anything to go by. wink

Maybe I have odd ideas of romance, but small acts of kindness...like getting a rose or a note card or a gentle touch on the back of the neck while he passes by would do me fine.

Quite frankly, it's the small acts of kindness that make a girl fall in love in the first place, and they are the thing that keep her going. Blinded by love cloudnine lady's handkerchief valentine lovestruck!

I agree with you, Naomi. I would again cite Gary Chapman's Five Love Languages. Even if the suitor/knight doesn't know what the lady's primary love language is, any act of kindness could be right on target--at least it's an effort! Vice versa for the ladies, too. lovestruck!

We had a small strawberry plant on our deck and it produced one day a single perfect little strawberry. My husband picked it and brought it to me to eat. I would have picked it and eaten it myself. He was Romantic
A week before he died, weakened by chemo, he took my daughter to Costco to help him carry and spent $ 900. on canned goods that I liked, paper products, frozen dinners, yard products (though it was winter) and other non perishables. He was trying to take care of me for as long as he could after he was gone. That was Romantic.
He left a note in my jewelry box that said "God wants a whole heart, but will take a broken one if he can have all the pieces". He knew I would go to the jewelry box for his funeral. That was Romantic.
I believe in Romance.

Hey everyone, I know I'm kind of late to post, seeing as it is already 4 pages long, but I just have to say that I'm a fan of this whole knight in shining armor thing. When I was growing up, my Dad always told me to be a knight and I believe I am cabable of being one. There are 2 big problems in our modern world: men who don't want to lead and women who don't want to follow. I know this may be a little silly, but I actually feel frustrated when a woman opens the door for me instead of vice-versa, lol :)

Joan you were so luckly to have such a great man. I lost my Paul almost 5 years ago he also toke care of me. I am looking for a more romantic guy this time. I just want a companion for now and see where that goes. But I really like what you had to say about you Dear one.

Joan, I too had a husband like yours. For close to 15 years he was my "knight in shining armor", cherishing me as his princess bride. Your husband lost his physical body to cancer, my husband lost his mind to mental illness.


I too believe in romance.

I'm not sure if it's fair to your knight to have to devote only half of his attention to the threat because, riding sidesaddle being the lady you are, it'll be all too easy for you to slip off your hawse.


Unless ... a sidecar ... with one of these
