Gentleman ... open door for Ladies???

I don't know if it was something I was taught or where the habit came from, but I always open doors, hold the door open, etc. for women. Not because I don't think they can do it for themselves or anything like that, but just out of pure courtesy. For my gf, I always walk to her side of the car and open the car door for her as well (well maybe not always, but most of the time anyway =) I don't even think it's just for ladies, sometimes if I see a family coming in somewhere behind me, I'll open the door and hold it open for them, again I'm not sure where I picked it up, but I've always been like that.

My husband is able to move faster than I am, so he usually gets to the door first to open it. If I happen to jump out of the car before he comes around to get the door, it's because I'm so used to getting in and out of taxis. LOL If I get to a door before he does, I'll hold it. I think it's human to human, not necessarily something someone should have to do because of their gender.
