A funny illustrated guide of chivalry for the modern man

In a world filled with late-night booty calls and infidelity, it’s easy to become jaded by today’s dating scene. Women expect the worst from men; proceeding cautiously during the first few months of dating. It becomes a relief for them when they then stumble upon those few true gentlemen. They exude chivalry with even their smallest actions, and remind women that there are still good men out there.

It doesn’t take a grand gesture or costly display of affection to win a girl over. Often, it just takes a little sincerity and display of genuine romantic interest. And that’s why artist Nathan Pyle has created a set of animated GIFs illustrating basic chivalry tips and etiquette.

Nathan states that the tips are for men in New York City, but I’m sure they can be applied elsewhere. Though most of them are common sense, it doesn’t hurt to be reminded of them once in awhile. Take a look at some of the GIFs below.

Don’t fear rejection


Be respectful and gracious if rejected


Give her your full attention


Always walk on the street side of the sidewalk


Push the revolving door steadily, so she doesn’t have to


Ensure she gets home safely


Shelter her from as much nastiness of the city as possible


These are little ways men show they care. Chivalry is not dead; men can be everyday knights in shining armour.
