Chivalry... From a REAL chivalrous man...

Listen folks, if you don’t know the real philosophy behind chivalry then you shouldn’t even comment at all upon it. I don’t give a rats a** what the dictionary definition is on the matter. The only people who can ever describe something so powerful, beautiful, and old fashioned is those who actually think about it and practice it. A lot of guys claim they are romantic and passionate and all that garbage but then after just one or two dates they suddenly transform into a total jerk.

You are either a chivalrous man or you are not! The truth is always revealed eventually, you can not hide from what you really are.

Asking questions about chivalry on a site like this is pointless because most people just want to get laid. Only a real dreamer, philosopher, and very old-fashioned guy would know the real meaning of such a thing.

True passion and chivalry is a thing of the past, which is something a few others guys mentioned and I agree with.

I disagree with a few comments about women not liking us guys who believe in it and practice it. At first we do come across and weak, but once a woman gets to know us I guarantee she won’t ever be thinking of another. You have to remember that a lot of women began seeking equal rights because guys stopped being chivalrous completely.

What is a woman supposed to do?

Obviously she (they) can’t sit back for a thousand years and await the return of something so beautiful. They had to seek a balance to the thing in which they lost and loved. Real men faded from existence and thus they had to fill that void.

I am curious; all these people who comment on the meaning of chivalry… who was it that gave it its name?

A chivalrous man is a man of passion, a lover and a warrior. A man who rules women and yet does not rule them, (if you can not figure out what it means when I say, “A man who rules women and yet does not rule them” then you are not yet able to understand anything about chivalry).

Just an FYI, King Arthur and Lancelot were not the reasons that chivalry came to be known! It was actually El Cid! He was exiled from his home and country and yet did not stop serving his king. He spent his life there after seeking a way to remove the exiling. He finally found a way by conquering one of the greatest cities at the time and then gave it to his king as an act of good faith. Out of happiness the king made him lord of the land and obviously welcomed him back into the kingdom.

El Cid is thought to be a legend just like King Arthur, the only difference is that historians have proven that El Cid existed and that he was one of the greatest lovers and warriors that has and will ever exist. He is one of the few men that never at any point in time lost a battle or a fight.

I won’t mention the details, but he treated women like queens more so then any story of Arthur or Lancelot ever has/had.

While knights were common and well known, there was very few that were actually considered to be a “true” knight. He was a knight of the sword and a knight of the heart!

I say this because some of the most famous knights in history did not actually live up to the dictionaries version and definition of chivalry.

Knights were also pretty close to what many would consider a nerd. They had much wisdom and intelligence and thus is a very confusing trait because a lot of women do not see this happen today. A lot of ‘today’s” nerds are not exactly great lovers or fighters like the olden ones where. Like Star Wars and the Jedi Knights, a knight-sought balance, and general understanding. And one last FYI, no chivalrous person would ever carry a modern weapon or even so much as think of carrying one. The sword is still the only true “tool” of a knight.

I know this is not the place for a comment like this, but after seeing yesterday’s responses I figured I better speak up. As another member said, I am someone (a rare someone) that knows what real knighthood and chivalry is really about. There is far more to it then I care to explain, and no one sentence definition can or would ever be able to come close to providing an answer.

Philosophy and chivalry are a thing of the past… until the few knights who are left reclaim what is rightfully theirs! It happened once, and I can assure you that it will happen again! There comes a time in every man's life where he has to wage war... Sad but true.

My questions do stand... do you men think the ladies where just going to sit around and wait for knights to be reborn?

Grr, sorry... I am sick of people commenting on something they totally do not understand. Comment on romance and passion or sex, but please do not comment on knighthood unless you can prove yourself to be one.

I posted a blog "A modern knight" (part one) a couple of days ago. It is a description of my life from birth to today. I am working on part two as we speak.

Thx Mysticwriter...I will look for that post on my question...I believe that a persons childhood experiences and homelife has an affect on them as to what type of person and lover they will grow up to be...that's why your story intrigues me as to why you have grown up to be a chivalrous young man in todays unchilvarous society.

I forgot to mention it and it is a big mistake by me for not...

El Cid was recognized for capturing the city because the army he fought was using cannons and such while his army only had swords and did not even have good siege equipment. It took a long time for the city to fall and required true strategy in order to accomplish the feat.

I will answer your question, but I will write and post a seperate response because that is a sligthly complicated answer LOL. I am not dishonest, it is a personal question, but I think it is actually a very good question.

Hello Mysticwriter88...I have commented on a few of your posts in the last are truly a rare find in this day and age...I believe the lack of chilvary these days is due to many reasons and it's not just the men's fault...women have played a part in the loss of it also and I won't go into details about that but I was curious about one thing concerning's a bit of a personal question and if you don't feel comfortable answering that's fine. What kind of love life did your parents have...and were they open in showing affection in your presence as you were growing up...was your dad chilvarous?
