I think it's a good thing to look for this in a potential partner. How does he treat, speak to, speak about the women in his life? How does he relate to elderly, friends, acquaintances, his boys, etc. How do his friends relate to their partners? Keep a close eye on these things. Trust me it feels good when my husband takes on the qualities of a good knight...*chuckle. I feel special and cared for and loved. It's a great feeling so advice from me to anyone reading this and still looking, fid a gentleman. Not a roughneck, not a rowdy randy man about town, a gentleman who opens the door for you, just because.
