chivalrous (adj) courteous, brave, and having a high sense of honor.

Being courteous, courageous, kind, generous, and honorable, especially towards women, is chivalrous. A person with a high sense of honor and always helpful to others, mostly in matters concerning women, especially when it requires courage and some sacrifice, is a chivalrous person. Holding the door open for women, as they enter a room or a vehicle, is just one such aspect of chivalry. To offer women seats, and then only sit, is chivalry.

  • A chivalrous person places others' interests above his, especially where women's needs are concerned. He never withholds help when help is needed.
  • The knights of the olden days considered chivalry the hallmark of a real hero. They stopped at nothing to be of help to, or to protect the helpless, especially women.
