Newly divorced and dating, I’m not sure of the proper gender etiquette for holding open a door for a woman. Although I never ran around to open the car door for my wife, I always made an effort to open any door we were approaching together. Is it condescending, or not, to hold the door open because the person behind you is a woman? Am I expected to hold the door open for her?
