    I absolutely find it chivalrous when men rise up when a lady joins a table. However, what should a lady do if she is already part of a group (mixed or mainly male) and the men rise up when another lady joins the table?

      I agree, it’s nice to see the men rise when a lady joins the group. If you’re already part of the group, I don’t think you need to rise at all — just greet the newcomer and welcome her to the table/group.
