HEHE! That’s great. I can imagine it just reading it. Too bad us girls can’t do that today. A girl could try. But I suspect the grin would be knocked off her face when the guy used his remote to unlock the doors. :)
I love Charlie Brown. I contemplated a snoopy tattoo 10 years ago. Never did it though. I’m glad now.
Hey, Renee, another thing that prevents me from doing that is the fact that none of the guys I know open car doors for girls all the time. A few guys I know will do it every now and then, but not consistently. I guess I’m just old-fashioned…
I don’t do it all the time, but whenever I’m on a date I will open the door for her. I don’t know what I would think if a girl were to do that, but I’m inclined to think I would find it humorous. Especially if she had learned it from Charlie Brown.
Charlie Brown is right to be completely confused. I’ve decided that I’m no longer going to try to understand the male gender. You’re all too confusing. Perhaps while I wasn’t looking, love morphed into some obscure hoax.
Dangit, this sort of thing always knocks you in the butt when you’re not paying attention.
We’re too confusing? We’re the ones who are locked out of our own car with a girl wrinkling her nose and grinning at us from inside. What sort of thing knocks who in the butt? Is that what happens to the guy when he finally gets his door open — a swift kick to the posterior?
In an interesting coincidence, the last two girls I’ve been with (heh, sounds provocative, huh?) have both waited in the car for me to open the door when getting out. I _always_ open the door on a date when getting into the car, and recently have tried to do it on non-dates, though it seems a little weird (too formal), and I don’t know what to do when there’s multiple girls. But anyway, two weeks ago was I think the first time I’ve ever had a girl wait for me to open the door getting out. Then a girl I took to dinner last night also waited for me to open the door. I don’t really mind doing it, though I’ve typically preferred they open the door when getting out as the other way seems too inefficient.
I just adore guys who open my door, date or non-date, doesn’t matter.
As for the getting out door opening thing. Many guys get upset at us gals if we don’t stay put and let them open the doors. It’s cute when a guy asks you to stay put so he can open your door. It’s certainly inefficient, but then I love it when guys are adorably sweet.
I dated a girl who used to stay in the car, so I would walk around and open her door. My rule of thumb is if she’s still in the car by the time I’m out I’ll open the door for her. We continued going out and I continued to open her door. One night she asked if I would mind if she got the door herself. I told her that either way was fine by me. I’m happy to do it if the girl wants me to, but if she would just as soon open the door herself, that’s fine too.
I think it’s impressive when guys open the door all the time, date or no date. It makes them stand out from other guys, because most don’t bother to do it. It shows respect, and that’s attractive to a girl.
I’m not at all opposed to door opening, but for reasons that vary, I don’t do it all the time. I’m not a particularly traditional person, and I make no apology for that, but sometimes I intend to open the door and absent-mindedly forget. Alas!
