Our expert says:
People of 40, male or female, are not very likely to change their habits. But neither of you are right or wrong, just diferent in how you choose to behave and what you expect of yourselves and of each other.
He's probably basically lazy and wasn't brought up to expect to behave in this way.
However, it has become confusing for men who try to behave well. Some women, like you, are upset if we don't do the "open the door" thing, but some women not only don't expect it or want it, but are openly scornful or rude when we try to do it. Some seem to find it a pleasant, somewhat old-fashioned way of being polite and considerate, some seem to find it an almost ofensive form of insult to their concept of feminism.
So I think it's polite for a woman to indicate to the guy broadly what she likes - and it is then only good manners for him to generally aim to meet her expectations ? It costs nothing to open a door.
