I am surprised by my brain sometimes; I am surprised by the thoughts that pop up in my head at random times of the day.
This morning, I was brushing my teeth and this thought popped into my head, “I want a guy who will always open doors for me.”
Whenever random thoughts pop into my head, I always try to think why my mind decides to bring that up. I think it’s because, on my few recent dates with multiple guys, none of them have opened doors for me. And I guess that bothered me.
I actually have a guy friend who always opens doors for me, and it’s quite lovely! Call me old-fashioned but I really appreciate that gesture.
But what is it about me being a highly-educated, independent woman that wants someone who wants to open doors for me? Obviously I can open my own doors. I think it’s the feeling I get that he’s a gentleman and that I am and can be taken care of when needed.
Basically, I want a gentleman.
According to Dictionary.com, one definition of “gentleman” is “a civilized, educated, sensitive, or well-mannered man.”
Someday, can I have it all?
