What Does It Mean When A Guy Opens A Door For You?

He is a guy that opens doors for people, given how he was raised.

When he sees you or anyone else coming for the door, he opens it, to be polite.

Some guys are taught that this is what most decent men are supposed to do in society.

They must be kind and hold doors open for others.
