Why You Should Date A Guy Who Opens Doors For You

You can tell so much about a guy simply by whether or not he opens doors for you. And no, I'm not talking about “opening doors” in the metaphorical sense.

Sure, that's absolutely incredible too. But I'm referring to a man who opens a car door for a lady. This guy truly knows chivalry at its finest.

A man who holds a door for a lady and lets her go in front of him is probably a keeper.

Opening a door for a woman is so much more than a sweet action in that particular moment: It most likely shows the man has really important qualities you'd look for in a boyfriend or lifelong soulmate.

Let's be real here: Do you really want to date a guy who doesn't have any manners, and who doesn't know the true meaning of respect?

Let's take President Donald Trump, for example. Pictures of him shaking hands with the Obamas and entering the White House on Inauguration Day went viral for a truly disheartening reason.

Melania is in the pictures, too. But the important thing is, she wasn't on the steps of the White House alongside her husband, where she belonged.

Donald Trump is the first president who did not wait for the First Lady in order to accompany her up the steps of the White House. He didn't open the car door for her, either.

This honestly breaks my heart. But there's something all of us women can do about it.

Here's why you should only date a guy who opens doors for you.

1. He's mature.

He's not a boy: He's a man. Immaturity is just not how he rolls.

2. He appreciates you.

He has manners, and he knows how to use them.

3. He's the ultimate example that chivalry is not dead.

He knows how to treat a lady exactly how she's supposed to be treated.

4. He's considerate.

He knows being thoughtful is an important key to making a relationship thrive and survive.

5. He's respectful.

He knows the meaning of respect like the back of his hand.

6. He's supportive.

He will always be 100 percent team you. Your achievements mean the world to him, and his mean the world to you.

7. He puts YOU first.

YEP, he'll walk through puddles so your chic stilettos don't get ruined and everything.

He takes one for the team, like a boss.

8. He's affectionate.

He'll show you – and give you – the loving you deserve.

9. He cares about what you think of him.

The man who cares about impressing you and gaining your affection is a keeper (and quite adorable, too).

A man who doesn't open doors for you NOW probably never will.

So, here's some advice: The guy who lets the door swing back and hit you in the face? Ditch that dude, STAT.

He doesn't deserve you one bit.
