As in many other countries, the behavior of a man depends on whether he is in love with you or is just feeling physically attracted. If you are the lucky one and win the heart of a Salvadoran man, you can expect him to be romantic, polite, attentive and loyal. Chivalry still exists here and machismo also thrives. You can certainly expect that men will open doors for you and carry your heavy bags, if not throw down their coats so you can safely navigate a puddle. As the more rural areas tend to be fairly conservative, some of the larger cities have people who may be a little more liberal. But it is still a predominantly catholic-based culture where gender roles are clearly defined.
