Am I too old fashioned?

Asked by XOIIO (16868 points ) February 12th, 2013 from iPhone

I’m wondering if I’m too old fashioned in terms of my perspective on relationships, especially for my age (18).

To me the whole chivalry thig just seems normal, paying for whatever expenses there would be, opening doors, pulling out chairs, offering to take a jacket, etc. same with some things which seem less common like always walking on the street side of the sidewalk, making sure that if a car veers off or hits a puddle or something I would be the one that takes the fall.

I also feel a big responsibility for their well being, and my thinking is if there something that would cause her any sort of injury, mortal or not it would be my responsibility to protect her, even if it would result in my serious injury or death.

So, is this whole thing too old fashioned for moder day relationships, and/ or for second of my age?
