A male friend and I are at playful odds about this topic. Which is the proper side for a female to be on when walking with a male? I think the left is the feminine side for most all situations. The exception is if the female is left handed, then she should be on the right so things are not awkward.
Dear Playfully Proper,
The proper side depends on the situation, but generally indoors, the female takes the male's right arm. When outside on the sidewalk, the male walks on the side nearest the traffic.
The exception is when the bride is on the male's left side during the wedding ceremony.
