Should I open the door? 20-30-40-50-60-70 men answer
As Father’s Day approaches, 20-40-60 decided to give the men a question. These men were chosen strictly because we thought they might give us an answer.
Question: Is it still proper for men to hold the door open for women?
20’s: Nick Tankersley’s answer: Of course it is still proper to hold the door open for women. It should not, however, be considered mandatory.
When you are out with your partner, then reaching for the door is something that says that you are putting them first. But just because you may miss the opportunity doesn’t mean that you are snubbing them. A failure to open the doors isn’t an insult, unless you precede your companion through the door and shut it soundly in their face.
Equally obnoxious is the idea that holding the door open is something you have to do, like a butler. If you approach a door and your date is a solid distance behind you (say at least 10 feet or so) and you wait for them to come and open it then you are basically calling your partner a servant.
30’s: Ford Sanger’s answer: Absolutely men should hold a door open for a woman, and go out of their way to do so. WIth that being said, I will hold a door open for anyone and I appreciate it when someone (men or women) hold the door open for me.
