When leaving, open the door for the woman and let her out first. The order changes if there are three of you that walk the street. If there are two men walking the street with a woman, she should walk in the middle.
Ghost of a Gentleman
If you are the youngest person you should walk on the outer, unprotected side. In the company of the two men, the most senior one walks in the middle. If you are in the company of two ladies, you should walk in the middle, but only till the moment the the rain starts to fall. Then you should open your umbrella and hold it above them, even if you get wet.
As you can see these are not so complicated rules and they are easy to follow. Any woman with a sense for chivalry will appreciate it. As mentioned, a man should walk on the side of greatest risk of harm or unpleasantness, protecting the lady with his body as needed. A Gentleman should always open the car door for a woman, holding her hand if needed for balance, as she sits.
Gentleman. A Timeless Fashion
Women are not the weaker sex, they are the gentler sex. The sooner we Men find resonance with their feelings and what they appreciate from us, the sooner we all will be happier. My question about walking with a woman is that I walk with a cane in my right hand. I cannot move the cane to my left, as it is used because of a physical disability. Should a woman walking with me be arm in arm, she will ONLY be able to walk that way on the left side. This could leave her at the edge of the sidewalk where cars could splash mud or water upon her.
The Gentleman's Journal
Were she to walk on my right, away from the danger of the road, then she would not be arm in arm with me. This would seen to be the more gallant way, but if she wants my arm then she must walk with danger on her left. This leaves me unsure of what to do. One thing is gallantry and another thing is health.
Your own convenience comes first here. The other part will perfectly accomodate.
You can show your respect a thousand other ways! When you walk down the street, you should walk on the left hand side. As you point out, this keeps the right arm available to greet or to fight anyone coming towards you. It also avoids you walking close to the road with your back to traffic. However, with the break away from English rule, lots of nations did away with driving on on the left so perhaps everything should be flipped in those countries.
I have a question, two men walking together down a sidewalk who walks to the right? Or does it matter? Thank you.

The more senior or honored person should be placed in the same position as outlined for women above. We say that both genders should be equal but men should still do things like open doors for women.
How can you be expected to get the same wages if you cant even open doors? Ryan, I personally take pride and pleasure in assisting my beautiful partner in any way I can. She, like many ladies these days, may not necessarily expect these practices, but I can assure you it is most always appreciated. Name required. Email required; will not be published.
