Did you ever ask yourself where chivalry came from? Were you under the impression that it was probably invented by women to entice men to open doors, pull out chairs, and pay for dinner? Nothing could be further from the truth! Chivalry was created by men, and served for centuries as the basis for the male code of ethics.
What Is Real The Definition Of Chivalry?
The concept of chivalry originated in Northern France, and is taken from the French word chevalerie, which means horse soldiery (or knights). Even though knighthood was left in the dust in the Middle-Ages, chivalry is still important today, especially in the game of seduction and romance.
Mastering The 5 Most Important Knightly Virtues
So what makes a man chivalrous? It can be boiled down to a few specific virtues, such as truth, honor, loyalty, love, and courtesy. And more importantly, how can you apply these virtues to your text game and become a texting knight in shining armor? Easy. Follow these tips and tricks, and sweep your partner off her feet.
Being truthful with your partner is the greatest form of respect, and sets the stage for romance. But sometimes the truth hurts, and you need to proceed with tact.
Instead of texting:
“Do we really have to see your friends again? They are so annoying!”
“I’m not feeling up for a Jim/Jeff bonding session tonight. Let’s figure out a plan B.”
Being honorable means doing what you know is right regardless of what everyone else is doing. It is a sign of confidence, and as we all know, confidence is sexy. If you don’t feel comfortable following the crowd, let your partner know. Standing up for what you believe in is always a better option than sending a text in agreement, or just ignoring the situation completely.
With all the apps and gadgets designed for cheaters it’s become super easy to lie about your “activities”. However the risk of betraying your partner’s trust just isn’t worth it.
Instead of texting a little white lie:
“Sorry, but I have to cancel our date because my aunt is sick.“
Text the truth instead:
“Sorry, but I have to cancel our date because I have a tight deadline to meet at work.”
As the relationship evolves with time, courtesy tends to go out the window. It’s a shame, because common courtesy is rather easy – it’s made up of little, simple gestures. Don’t lose easy points, and keep the following in mind when texting your partner.
– Avoid texting too late at night, or too early in the morning (you could ruin her beauty sleep!).
– Begin the first text message in a series by saying hello plus her name. “Hey Kathryn…”
– Send a heartfelt thank you after a date (calling is also a great idea).
– Compliment and notice changes, such as her new hair-cut, or a pair of sexy new shoes.
“Killer outfit, fantastic conversation, gorgeous girl. Thanks for the wonderful evening!”
“Those are some hot new heels you bought…mind bringing them over later? I need a closer look”
5. Romantic love
As anyone who has ever been in a relationship can vouch, it takes a lot of work to keep the romance alive.
Guess what? texting can be your ally. Use a mixture of different message types to make your partner feel special.
Flatter her intelligence:
“I’m amazed by how fast you figured out your new job…you’re one smart cookie (a cute cookie that is ☺).”
Let her know she’s on your mind:
“Missing your warm body next to mine.”
Make her feel special with a creative name:
“Hey there my little sex kitten…”
Cater to all her basic romantic desires to make her feel incredibly special, sexy, important, and always close to your heart.
Try texting like a knight and see how your love life improves. Follow these 5 virtues taken from the definition of chivalry and you will start enjoying even more success with the opposite sex. She may not know what has gotten into you, but she sure will like it!
