D.C. Is America’s 2nd Most Chivalrous City

LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — Who says chivalry is dead?

Washington, D.C. is the second-most chivalrous city in America, according to the affluent dating website SeekingMillionaire.com.

The site polled more than 32,000 users about the cities where men displayed the best manners.

Women on the site were asked to list the cities where they encountered the most chivalrous men. Men, meanwhile, were asked about their habits while on a date such as paying for dinner and overall treatment of the woman.

When the results were tallied up, the nation’s capital trailed only Dallas, Texas in the modern chivalry department.

“Honoring traditional gender roles isn’t a step back for progress,” said Brandon Wade, the site’s founder and CEO. “Courting a woman should be more of an art, and less a means to an end.”
