I've come to realize that it's OK to be a white knight. It's OK to hold doors for women, do nice things for them, surprise them with the occasional gift/dinner/ect.
What's NOT OK is to be a white knight and let them walk all over you and do whatever they please. They SHOULD NOT be spending time with other men alone, withholding sex because they can/are angry/ect., do whatever they please without consequences, and should not think they have all the control.
It is inevitable in a relationship to have some so-called "beta" and some so-called "alpha" moments, but either choice must be chosen wisely depending on the situation.
Women like to be with a man that takes control, but is not a jerk. They want you to take chances and not be a pushover.
This is a white knight that has a backbone. The white knight is nice, but once the women oversteps the boundaries of the relationship, he must switch gears and become one who will not be walked on. This also applies to sex in that the woman wants to be dominated/controlled and wants to be dirty, but often does not want to be treated as a bar sloot. She does want some control from time to time, but that control MUST NOT be abused.
Now there are the women to want to be treated like trash by black knights/bad boys, but these types of women are almost ALWAYS found in bars/clubs/similar places.
Hope this helps anyone.
