100 Tips To be a Lady


“The attributes of a great lady may still be found in the rule of the four S’s: Sincerity, Simplicity, Sympathy, and Serenity.”

  1. Before you can convince people you’re attractive, you have to believe it yourself.
  2. A lady never kisses and tells.
  3. Always say “please” and “thank you“. Civility never goes out of  style.
  4. Only wear heels if you know how to walk in them.
  5. Be yourself.
  6. Enjoy the fact that you are a woman and men will enjoy it, too.
  7. Never show too much leg or too much cleavage at the same time.

  10. Let people know that you think they’re wonderful.
  11. Avoid false compliments.
  12. Remember birthdays and send thank you notes.
  13. Underwear is not a misnomer.  Exposed thongs are not glamorous.

  15. When in doubt, dress up.
  16. Carry yourself with confidence. It’s sexier than any low-cut dress.

  31. Be sincere.
  32. Don’t take out your bad mood on others. No one should be punished for being your in company.

  2. Well it was good and helpful in some ways and then hurtful in others. Like saying how in rule 90 you are saying how a lady is always fit and not overweight I believe that is not true because there are a lot of respectful lady’s in the world but are overweight.

Speak your mind !
