The end of door-holding?

Men, you read it here first...you don't need to hold the door for a woman any more.

A new suggest the modern woman prefers her independence and has no longer come to expect chivalrous behaviour from men

Most women would prefer to pay for their dinner on a first date, and would not accept the offer from a man to carry her bags, according to new figures.

Very few women said they would accept a seat on public transport if offered by a man, nor accept a gentleman's coat on a cold day, a survey by socked.co.uk has concluded.

Mark Hall, Gentleman Creation Officer Socked.co.uk, said: "Men's standards have slipped so far over recent years that any offer of chivalry from a gentleman knocks a woman off their guard and is viewed with outright suspicion.

"Does an offer of goodwill have to be taken the wrong way? If men upped their game across the board, good manners would be back on the agenda once again. We've forgotten about good behaviour, and it's high time gentlemen stood up to be counted - especially on a crowded bus."

Only 34% of women said they expect men to open doors for them.
