Wycombe, PA, February 17, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- For nearly fifty years men have been told that chivalry is dead, and most men bought into that myth. Following trends on social media and speaking with women it is clear that most definitely notice, appreciate and seek men who perform acts of chivalry. John Rasiej of Bring Chivalry Back is on a mission to help men wake up, realize they got a wrong message and see that chivalry actually helps them in their personal relationships and in their dealings with women overall.
To inspire more men to discover the pleasure of making a woman notice and perhaps smile at him, Bring Chivalry Back has created #Chivalry365, a year-long experience to keep men's chivalry from being relegated to just Valentine's Day.
Many men have just spent a ton of effort and money to do something special for loved ones on Valentine's Day. A survey conducted by BIGinsight, a consumer insights firm, found that men spend an average of $175,61 on candy, flowers, cards, gifts and more. But after that day, many of those gestures go into hiding for the better part of a year, coming out perhaps on birthdays and anniversaries and of course next Valentine's Day.
According to relationship expert John Rasiej of Bring Chivalry Back, "Pouring so much affection into Valentine's Day may feel romantic and assuring, but there would be more value for men to express their feelings on a more ongoing basis.
"Frequent gestures of chivalry can help create a warmer bond in long marriages, can help create an excitement for couples in new relationships or can help that single guy who's looking for a special woman to notice him. In fact, chivalry becomes a great equalizer for men who don't have 'model' looks, since women are seeing the man's behavior instead of making a surface judgment just on appearance.
"Practicing chivalry and other gestures of caring allows men and women to reap the rewards of a caring and more satisfying relationship. Without frequent small gestures, relationships may start to dull or fade into bitterness and a feeling of being taken for granted."
To bring not just attention to chivalry's benefits but to inspire action, Bring Chivalry Back has created #Chivalry365, a movement for men to practice chivalry every day for a year. Participants will commit to performing at least one such act daily until Valentine's Day of 2015. They will use social media to share their experiences to help give each other ideas and support. Tweets using the hashtag #Chivalry365 will allow the men to see what others are doing. To add enjoyment, there will be occasional awards for the Best Move, Most Gutsy Move, Biggest Group Chivalry etc.
Bring Chivalry Back is a business dedicated to encourage men and couples to embrace chivalry in order to strengthen relationships as well as to improve the overall comportment of men toward women in non-relationship situations.
Participation in #Chivalry365 is free, and interested men are encouraged to go to the site http://bit.ly/chivalry365 to register and stay connected.
