Gallantry That Makes Your Heart Melt

In novels, the love interest always has that one super cute and gallant action up his sleeve that is the thing that makes the MC fall completely for them. Usually they're this overly dramatic gestures like him allowing himself to be chained in the pits of Hell to save you best friend/other love interest, like in White Hot Kiss.

In the real world, however, it's unlikely that these types of situations would arise. More often than not, this is a blessing because not only would you feel super bad about the fact that some willingly went to Hell for you, but talk about high expectation for the next guy! This isn't a situation you would like to find yourself in.

So I thought, What gallant thing can an everyday guy do to make you think,'Yep, that one's a keeper'?

Personally, the first memory that comes to mind is when I accidentally farted (rather loudly) whilst with a group of people I'd just met. Needless to say, I was mortified. I just happen to make eye contact with the guy across from me, and he, obviously understanding from my embarrassed and panicked face that I was guilty, said,"My bad, guys." Just like that. No hesitation. Just took the hit as everyone laughed at him. But, oh, this moment was not over yet. It seemed my first fart had a friend, and a second one slipped from me. And the guy covered for that one, too!

I know this seems like a small thing, but this random act of kindness from, what was then basically a complete stranger, is something that I'll never forget.


Has a guy ever done anything gallant-like for you?
