Men could be chivalrous and not turn women off because women were still largely dependent on men.I depend upon my husband to protect me and provide for all my needs.There were times when him and my grandmother were still raising their children that he would work at the factory for 12 hours a day, oftentimes 7 days a week.He was also a WWII veteran who went to war straight out of high-school, never complaining or whining that women weren’t drafted, whenever his country called him to.
I’ve had men e-mail me and leave comments on the site saying even how they’d love to have lasting relationships, be chivalrous and take care of women, but that they have no success with women when they do so.
This is the cousin that I grew up with, the same fun-loving one that used to laugh and joke and generally have a good time with everyone.
He got married a few years back and they have a daughter (I think she’s about 3) together.
My grandfather also worked for a long time as an electrician, and they resided in various locations around the country, primarily in California, Texas, Arkansas and Illinois.
My grandmother was telling me about it once how you would just get used to the routine of getting up where she’d fix his breakfast and lunch and then he’d come home, and they’d go to sleep, only to get up and do it all over again the next day.
