Chivalry’s true definition is: the qualities idealized by knighthood, such as bravery, courtesy, honor, and gallantry toward women. I would say though, that chivalry is what every girl dreams of a guy being like when they get married, a “prince charming” in other words. Opening doors, picking up things, and all together just being a gentleman would qualify as being chivalrous. But chivalry is something that cannot be obtained. It comes from the heart, and is a trait that can never be removed.
