Man Gives His Girlfriend His Hood But Keeps His Coat For Himself

Man Gives His Girlfriend His Hood But Keeps His Coat For Himself

They say chivalry is dead - well, one guy showed romance is still alive as he gave his girlfriend his jacket to keep her 'new haircut' dry. Or at the very least, he gave her the hood.

It seems the Internet has been left confused as to whether this is an act of kindness or not - the man only gave his girlfriend his hood and kept the coat for himself.

These bizzarre antics left Jake Shannon, 26, stunned - in fact, he couldn't believe his eyes when he spotted the couple holding hands during a rainy day in Northwich, Cheshire. So much so that he actually drove back to film them.


The unusual footage shows the couple walking through the rain, the girl is completely without a coat but has a large bright blue hood over her head - and the matching item appears to be her boyfriend's bright blue jacket.

The confused driver suspected the man in the jacket could have just paid for the girl to have her hair done in one of the numerous salons close by and didn't want to see the rain ruin it.

Jake, from Winsford, Cheshire, said: "I couldn't stop laughing.

"It was hammering it down. I reckon he has paid for her haircut and didn't want it ruined.


"It's more than likely - I would do the same if I'd paid for my missus' hair.

The man's odd gesture has split opinion as many tagged their partners in the video, shared online by Jake, asking that important question: "Would you give me your hood?"

Oddly enough, plenty of people though the man should have given her the whole coat.

The debate has wracked up over 11,000 comments on Facebook, discussing whether the mystery man is a perfect gent or just trying to get away with the bare minimum.

Jake's own comment when he shared the video read: "You love your girl....but do you love her enough to give her the hood off your coat!?[This] man's setting standards out here that I just can't meet."

He later added: "I have no idea why he chose to just give her the hood and not the whole coat. He probably didn't want to get wet himself but thought he better protect her hair.

"I think it's very unusual, it's quite inventive.


"If I was out when it was raining I would just give my missus my coat, I would never think to unbutton the hood and just give her that.

"I think my missus would just take my coat off me.

"It's gone viral on Facebook, I've had thousands of comments from people - lots of people tagging their partners saying they wouldn't give them their hood.

"I think it's captured people's imagination because it's just so unusual. It's really out of the ordinary - it's not something you expect to see walking down the street."

However, many people have criticised the man's antics and felt the gentlemanly thing to do would have been to give her his whole coat, rather than just the hood.

One person wrote: "Gotta wait for the new perm to set - it just cost him 350," while another tagged a pal and said: "[We] need to find someone that loves us this much."

Meanwhile a third person also tagged a friend and wrote: "We need to find boys that do this for us."
