Instead, nearly three-quarters think that chivalry is dead, a survey has found.
While traditional acts of courtesy like helping a woman put on her coat or pulling out a chair for her are now mostly seen as outdated, women hoped gestures of "modern chivalry" would have replaced them.
Men calling when they say they will topped the list of these acts of politeness that women most want, cited by 84%. A similar number expect a partner to check they got home safely after a date.
Good communication is clearly central to modern chivalry, as four in five also said they wanted to receive attentive texts during the day, and expect phones to be turned off during dates. But 73% of single women polled are being left disappointed, and said their dating experiences have made them fear chivalry is dead.
