You don't need to revert back to the 1800s, but showing a little common courtesy matters a lot to women.
Chivalry still exists, and women take note of this much more than they will tell you. It doesn't have to be all the time and it doesn't have to do with money or power. Simple gestures such as letting a women walk first into an elevator, holding the door for her or letting her decide which side of the table to sit on will do wonders for you. No matter where you are in the dating stage, you should never get so comfortable that you leave chivalry behind. Just remember, it's not because she will owe you something later, it's because you're a gentleman.
