Chivalry and 3D Movies

I had never seen a movie in 3D before. I never understood the fun in wearing those goofy glasses and sitting in a theater while images jump off the screen. But just like I do every other rainy day in Detroit when the thought of being inside was absolutely unbearable me and my love went to the matinee. After a whole week of rainy days we decided to finally see Final Destination 3D. I'm not saying it was my last choice, but as I'd mentioned before I had never seen a movie in 3D before so ...well you know how it is when you're trying something new. In fact when we got to the ticket counter the cashier, whose lack of enthusiasm showed the repetitve nature of her job, offered us an option to see it like a regular movie or see it in 3D. I almost chose the regular one. But being the brave soul that I am, I decided to try something new. So I ordered plenty of goodies, settled down with my new "stunna shades" on and prepared for the ride. Now Final Destination movies are already scary enough. But for metal objects, glass, and body parts to be coming directly at you made the movie 100  times scarier!!!! I felt like I was in the movie and like a child I found myself reaching out to grab objects that I knew weren't there or ducking behind my boyfriend to avoid being killed by things that I knew were coming right towards my head. It was an amazing movie experience.

And while we're talking about movies...does anyone remember that movie "Dude Where's My Car?". That was one of those movies that was absolutely stupid and below my intelligence level but I loved it so much. It seemed as if it was one of those moments where I could just dumb down and laugh at things that made absolutely no sense. But everytime I watch that movie at the end I always ask myself what could I possibly find funny in that movie? Or maybe it really wasn't the humor, but instead Ashton Kutcher's beatiful boy features.

Is Chivalry Dead?
My father was a gentleman. He raised me to be not only a lady but a princess. My dad would open the door, pull out the chaair, pay the bill and all that other super star stuff that real men do. Because of that I will compare every man to my father and every man must treat me like his princess. At my age you haven't had that much experience dating but as my dad the gentleman would say, "There's bought sense and there's borrowed sense." Basically that translates to there are some things we learn the hard way through our own experinces and then there are some things that we learn through other people's experience, by listening and watching. So through both my bought and borrowed sense I have come up with this entries topic...Is Chivalry Dead?

RIP Chivalry
You Are Greatly Missed

Think back...
Ladies when is the last time your man or any man opened the door for you?
When is the last time your man opened a car door for you?
Look outside. Is your grass cut and your leaves raked?
Or besides that when is the last time you asked your man to do something (that required more than spending money) and he actually did it?

Men, when is the last time you did any of the above things for your woman?
When is the last time that you went out of your wya to make your woman comfortable?
When is the last time that you saw a woman struggling with her bags and you helped her?

If you're like the majority of people then you probably dont remember the last time. And since that is the case then yes you have proved to me that chivalry is dead. Or dying?

But what has changed throughout the years besides the date?
I have a few theories...

  • A good portion of young men these days aren't being raised with a father in the house and therefore there was no male figure to teach them how to be a gentleman.

  • Women have lowered their standards and no longer expect men to be gentleman.

  • Men no longer see women as princesses and queens.

  • Women hav e become so independent that they "don't need a man" to do the things that gentleman do.

It could be none of these reasons or a combination of them all who knows? But the fact is the days of ladies and gentleman are fading and if chivalry isn't already dead then we need to give it CPR!!!
