First of all… What is Chivalry?
a. The qualities idealized by knighthood, such as
gallantry toward women.
(Gallantry– Polite attention or respect given by men to women.)
b. A manifestation of any of these qualities.
Second of all… WOW, WOW, WOW!!
Third of all… What does it mean to be lady-like?
I know many people could have different answers. But I read an AWESOME article about being lady-like and I believe it hit it right on!!!
(I’ll share some of it but I’ll share the link so you can read the rest of it… believe me it is worth the read!)
understands that her appearance, behavior, and way of communicating provide others with valuable insight into her character. She knows that her true beauty is not acquired at a make-up counter, with a new outfit, or by following the latest Hollywood trend. Rather, she understands true beauty is first inward.

(And if your a Christian I would personally also add godly to that list.)
And here are some more lady-like attributes that I believe would tremendously and powerfully make some if not most men rise up and bring CHIVALRY along with them!…
☆Allow no sexual touching or “fooling around” until that WEDDING ring is on your finger. (Make sure he’s ‘The One’ first of course!)
☆Allow him to pay when you go out to dinner/lunch/movie/brunch/ etc.. you get the point.
☆Allow him to “Woo you”, and yes that can be done without sex.
(Remember “Ladies, if he’s not going to put you on a pedestal, don’t put yourself under him.”
☆Allow yourself to dress modestly especially when with him.
Oh there are probably many more I could name… but how about you? Do you happen to have any suggestions?
Or do you have any ideas that could bring back some CHIVALRY?
(I also know there are probably many girls/women that have no clue on how to be lady-like….believe me I was NOT raised to be lady-like! But maybe the first step is learning to be more lady-like and than being an influence, impact and an inspiration to someone else who is looking up to you!)
