On one of my previous post I talked about the evolution of a modern women and her distinctive attributes from our grandmothers. After making findings and talking to few experts on etiquettes. I was able to come up with some ways women should act and what makes them ladies.
To be a lady you must know how to dress for a particular event. You do not just show up with whatever pleases you. You have to respect the host and follow their order. She does not bring unnecessary attention to her self from her odd dressing. If someone ask you for a date, and you don’t want to go, you politely declined without hurting the person feelings. But if you choose to go for that date. You make sure you are ready on time. Ask for the location, in order to know the appropriate dress to wear. Make sure you order what you are familiar with. Do not rush out and leave your date when it is not time. But if you must leave on time, excuse yourself and thank the person for a wonderful time.
As modern women in the world full of religious, race, ethnic, social and political differences, do not just voice your opinion anyhow. If you have a strong views about controversial issues do not say it in midst strangers. You have to be politically correct. If others have a contrary opinions don’t cut them off or shut them down, simply keep quiet and nod.
We live in the era of technology, where people with mobile phones leave unwanted opinions on other’s page. As modern women we shouldn’t be caught doing that or making hateful remarks about others on social media.
You do not ask dating couples when they are getting married, likewise you do not ask married ones when they will have children. If a lady noticed that her friend have added weight, she does not point it out in the midst of people or if she noticed something about a person. Simply point it out when she is alone with that person.
As modern women , if you are to attend church, cinemas and funeral and other events tried to arrive on time, but if you arrived late follow the directions of the ushers. Do not caused unnecessary disturbance around to make people notice your lateness. If they are standing in that event please do the same.
A lady is fashionable. She follows trend and set trend, she is stylish not tacky with her dress sense. she takes care of her body, hair, nails and makeup.
Modern women do not complain at slightest things. They try as much as possible to not brag, nag and flattered people. A lady treat everyone with respect not only her superior. Making others feel worthless through her actions is not a ladylike behaviour. If she sees friends and acquaintances in anywhere she greet them and keep it moving. If She is somewhere she is not familiar with the people she start-up a conversation with someone with a friendly face. Modern women don’t
spend time talking to one person they try to mingle respectfully with others. They make an introduction. They knows that introducing the younger one to elder first is the right thing to do
We live in a world where mistakes are bound to happen. If a lady offend anyone, she apologized on time and correct her wrongs. She try her best to prevent conflict.
As modern women you do not mention your menstruation, cramps and other personal thing to people except they are close friends or not all. Lady do not discard her feminine hygiene products anyhow. It doesn’t tell well of you.
A modern women ends relationships, friendship and her job in a friendly manner. No matter what. When they are in a relationship, they does not do it expense of their friends and family. If they are heart-broken, they don’t make it a public matter.
A lady and modern women not intentionally downgrade the masculinity of man. They gives them their respect. A lady do not always try to equal herself to a man. She knows her lane and cultivate to an empire for herself.
A modern women try to make everyone around them feel good about themselves.
A modern women does post every information about them in the public.
To be a woman is easy, but a lady demands a lot.
A lady does not tell her friend personal doings to others. Her protect her business and that of her friends.
Being modern women ihttp://www.kikgi.com/2017/08/16/women-empowerment/n the 21st century is hard because people seem not to
care about values and etiquette but to cash in on dollar and naira. Please lets pick up our manners and value again. It cost nothing but only make the world a better place.
Most importantly, modern women knows that, I am sorry, excuse me, please, may I, and thank you, are the magic words.
