A MAN who insists on opening doors and pulling out chairs for ‘ladies’ is not a Knight of the Round Table and actually a bit creepy.
Office manager Martin Bishop, 42, makes a massive fuss about things like helping women with their coats, which quickly gets annoying and is weirdly controlling.
Helen Archer, who went on a date with Bishop, said: “Being chivalrous sounds nice but Martin just creeped me out. I expected him to go down on one knee to pass me a menu.
“He also did that mental thing of standing up every time I left the table, as if we were in King Arthur’s banqueting hall, not Nando’s in Stevenage.
“Martin says it’s a shame people aren’t chivalrous these days, but then he tried to order my dinner for me. I’m pretty sure Lady Guinevere was perfectly capable of ordering some chicken wings.
“The evening went really badly then he insisted on paying the bill. When I said I wanted to pay half he looked annoyed and asked if I was ‘one of those bloody feminists’.
“There’s not going to be a second date, however chivalrous Martin may be.”
