A huge portion of this scene deals with Blanche, her husband, and her husband's suicide. None-the-less, we get a glimpse of what Blanche wants from a man through her interactions with Mitch. Note, Blanche doesn't see Mitch as chivalrous or courtly, but he does fit the definition of a gentleman, and he can take care of what's most important...... he can support her as his wife.
