Introduction:Do men really just not care anymore about opening doors for women or are they just afraid that if they open a door for the wrong woman that they might get beat up?

Here is a list of the top five reasons why men should still be opening doors for women in the year 2011 and beyond.

  • 01

    Show Love

    Men, opening the door for your woman shows love. This is such a simple way to show your love for a woman. Opening the door for a woman only takes a second or two.

    When entering a store or a building, as you are heading to the door, just open it. Don't go right in. Stop and wait for your woman to go in first.

    Most women these days open their own doors. They even open their own car doors. It certainly is not the fact that they are not able to do this on their own. It is just that it is so hard for a man to show his love to a woman, this is one simple way that you can do just that.

  • 02

    Show Respect

    Opening a door for a woman shows respect. This simple gesture used to be quite common. Men often look for the easiest things to do for a woman to show their respect for her. This is probably one of the best and easiest things that you can do for your woman to show her your respect.

    Many men could not care any less about showing respect to women. It is so simple to do and such a simple gesture, though, that they sometimes do open doors for women without ever even realizing that they are doing it.

    It is always good to show your respect for anyone.

  • 03

    Strangers Do It

    It is pretty sad when a woman goes to a shopping center with her man and he walks in well ahead of her. He does not even stop to think about opening the door for her. He is already in the store long before she even gets to the door.

    Showing a little love and a little respect is really not all that hard to do. Even complete strangers will do this.

    There are truly many times when women go either alone to a store or even with a man, and a complete stranger will open the door for the both of them. This is truly appreciated by all.

  • 04

    Women Should Appreciate This Kind Gesture

    Opening the car door for a woman so that she can get into the car first and get situated used to be done without even thinking. In the olden days, this was always the thing to do. Women always appreciated it, too.

    Nowadays, everyone is always in such a hurry. Surely, you men can at least consider taking that extra minute or so to begin opening that car door for your woman again.

    This really is a kind gesture, and all women should appreciate you for your added time and effort for doing this.

    In a world that keeps getting worse and worse by the day, let's think about bringing back some simple acts of kindness.

  • 05

    You Probably Won't Get Hurt, and It Is Totally Worth the Chance

    Some women might not agree with this. After all, they certainly are capable of opening their car doors all on their own. These women really shouldn't mind, though. It is such a wonderful, simple act of kindness.

    Feel free to show your love. Show your respect. Men should be proud to open any door for their women or even to open any door for a stranger. Give it a shot. You probably won't get hurt, and it is totally worth the chance that you will be taking.

    We can all use more simple pleasures in life such as these random acts of kindness.

    Funny - my boyfriend just yesterday went out of his way to open the door for a woman using a cane. She was amazed. She looked at me and said for me to keep him - there aren't many like him walking around. I told her I would heed her sage advice.

    I completely agree with you. Even my 17 year old son opens up doors for me and others. Nice list.

    Great list, Even though I'm capable of opening the door, I don't mind when a man opens the door for me.

  • tracysmith159 3/5/2011 Flag This Comment

    Wonderful articles. I even make my boys open the doors for me. Little thing that I hope will impress the girls. Both of my boys even do the laundry and dishes.

    For sure, chivalry is not dead. Nice list!

    Some people are very sensitive to others and the world around them, while others are completely oblivious. I think we have not encouraged this for a long time, and it should be. I love gentlemen.

    Not to mention the fact that it's just plain good manners! So glad to report all my sons open doors for women!

  • bossypants 3/5/2011 Flag This Comment

    I think it's charming when a man opens the door for a woman. And, there's no reson we can't reciprocate! :)

  • goodselfme 3/5/2011 Flag This Comment

    Men opening doors for women have a two fold effect. When strangers open a door for me, I see they feel appreciated too. I know I like it very much.
