Chivalry

[This entry I am submitting to stuff.co.nz's Blog Idol 2. It only allowed 150 words which made it difficult for me but hopefully it do well]

While scanning forums, I came across a post that reminded me of the debate of chivalry on a date. It was about a girl’s recent date where the guy organised an expensive candlelit restaurant. The date went well until she offered out of courtesy to pay for half the bill. When he agreed he stopped being chivalrous. “A gentleman would never have let me pay and I only date gentlemen”. She argued that since he arranged everything he should have paid.

A flatmate a friend once had tried to convince me to join findsomebody.co.nz because she gets to meet different people and go on dates. My reply was, “it’s great for you because the guy pays for everything”. She immediately replied, “No, if the girl is half decent, she will pay her own way”.

Was it not chivalrous to pay for half or was she “not half decent”?
