What's The Deal With Chivalry? [Friday Faves]

Here at CollegeCandy, we've wondered where chivalry has gone – and I’d like to know where the little sucker slipped of to, too. But what I want to talk about now is, if chivalry is gone, do we really want it back? And should we expect it?

Friday Faves: The Feminist's Dating Dilemma

Recently, a few of my friends and I got into a bit of a disagreement over who pays on a date. Although a few people agreed with me that if the relationship is long-term, the couple should split the costs for practical reasons (after all, especially if you’re on a college budget, it’s hard to bear the burden of all expenses), the overall consensus was that the guy should always pay at first. Some said the first date, some the first three dates, and others advocated up to the first year.

Surviving Senior Year: Post-Grad Goals

So last week, I had a bit of a meltdown. A pre-grad crisis if you will, freaking out about what comes next before I even get there. So this week, I’m trying to fix that in the best way I know how. By eating lots of ice cream and watching old episodes of Gossip Girl making a list. But not just an list, a list of post grad goals for myself.

Does Chivalry Even Exist in the College World?

Okay. So we’re going to do that thing where I write a word, and you say the first word that comes to mind. Ready? Okay. Chivalry. Right. So what are you thinking? Knights and ladies? Castles? Old school gentleman? Do you even know what chivalry is?

This Post-Grad Life: Chivalry Does Exist After College

Ok, contrary to popular belief from my last posts, post-grad college life is pretty amazing sometimes. That's why I'm going to dedicate this post to something positive. Because yes, also contrary to popular belief, post-grad life is not a purgatory (I have a tendency to be a little melodramatic from time to time).

The 11 Things We Wish Guys Would Do More Often

Earlier today, while procrastinating on that whole "find a summer job" thing, I came across an article on Glamour.com entitled, “11 Things Men Want You to Do More Often—in Bed and Out. The list is honest and endearing, but there's one major problem: most women don't receive half of these courtesies in return.

Ask a Dude: Why Was He So Nice?

Hi Dude, So I met this guy at a party one night and we exchanged numbers. A few days later he texted me and asked me if I wanted to meet him for some drinks. I met him at the bar and we had a great time. We had so much to talk about, there was never an awkward silence and we ended up staying pretty late. I was going to take the bus home, but he refused to let me and offered to drive me home.

Single. And Impatient

OK, remember that boy I was confused about earlier this year? Yeah, well he showed back up again in my life. Without a warning, he offered to help edit my honors paper (and I mean, trust me, I was NOT going to say no to someone with decent grammar willingly offering to proof read...I have to bribe my roommates with brownies).

Earlier this month, we were asking where chivalry had gone – and I’m down with that, I’d like to know where the little sucker slipped of to, too. But what I want to talk about now is, if chivalry is gone, do we really want it back? And should we expect it?

Wherefore Art Thou Chivalry?

Romeo and Juliet probably would not have been the famous star-crossed lovers had they met at a bar instead of a balcony. We all remember the duo that defined infatuation, Juliet up on her pedestal and Romeo down on one knee. Though I hate to be the bearer of bad news, the times have changed since the days of poetic love letters and walking a girl to the front door.

21 Ways to be a Gentleman in the 21st Century

As I was exploring the joys of StumbleUpon with a good guy friend of mine, I happened upon this site: the 21 ways to be a gentlemen. Seriously, click that link and read it. Then join me as I ask, "Um, really?" The list is chock full of some pretty assinine and totally dated characteristics of a "gentleman."
