If you see a damsel in distress, then leave her in distress. That's my advice.
Some of you guys are always trying to be a knight in shining armor, the modern captain save-a-ho. This isn't a fairy tale guys! 9 times out of 10, that damsel in distress is playing you. And after she's done with your dumb ass, you're the one who's going to end up in distress.
