20 Things to Avoid to Become a Real Lady

41778 ratings | 4067480 views
Some people consider the rules of etiquette to be outdated and old-fashioned. However, good manners never go out of style. If you want to be taken seriously, you should know there are things that can ruin your image of a true lady. We at Bright Side have come up with a list of typical etiquette mistakes a lady would never make. Keep them in mind, and you'll always make a great first impression. TIMESTAMPS Wearing poor-quality fake designer items 0:34 Making fashion mistakes 1:20 Slouching 1:59 Not taking good care of yourself 2:30 Wearing too much makeup 3:00 Being too fussy 3:25 Finishing your soup 3:59 Being rude and spreading rumors 4:32 Talking and laughing loudly 4:49 Arguing 5:17 Eating on the go 5:43 Being too honest 6:07 Wearing white high heels 6:25 Being late 6:50 Leaving an umbrella open to dry 7:12 Responding to another person's sneeze by saying "Bless you" 7:39 Not wearing pantyhose 7:58 Refusing food or drinks offered by a host 8:18 Dancing with your hair down 8:41 Blowing on your food to cool it down 9:00 SUMMARY - You don't have to spend all your money on some ridiculously expensive designer bag. But if you can't afford it, buying a much cheaper copy is not an option. A replica, even of good quality, can be easily spotted. - A true lady would never wear an oversized sweater or a pair of overly tight shorts. She knows how to choose the right types of clothes that say a lot about her style. - Improving your posture is not as difficult as it may seem at first. Including regular exercises in your schedule will strengthen the muscles in your upper back and shoulders and improve your posture. - A true lady takes good care of herself. She loves sports, maintains a healthy diet, pays attention to skincare, and consults specialists if necessary. - If a woman pays special attention to skincare, her skin looks amazing. She knows exactly what makes her face stand out and uses makeup accordingly. - A true lady knows how to take control of her nervous habits — if she has any. - To get the last spoonful of soup, you need to slightly tilt your bowl or soup plate. Although table manners say you should tilt the plate away from you to avoid splashing, it's better not to finish the soup at all. - Being rude, gossiping, and whining are taboos for a true lady. It's beneath her. Neither would she listen to someone else's whining and gossiping. - It's very important to watch the tone of your voice. Laughing loudly, yelling, and offensive language is unacceptable. - A true lady always has her own opinion, and she's 100% sure of it. However, she'd never force her ideas on anybody, nor would she argue her choice. - Etiquette rules say you need to use cutlery when you're at the table. So even if pizza is your favorite food, don't order it in a restaurant. - A true lady is never too much when it comes to communicating with new people. - A pair of white pumps can be worn either with a white wedding gown or with a white summer dress. If such a pair is decorated with a colorful detail, such as a bow or something of the kind, it is easier to integrate the shoes into your outfit. - A lady knows that it's unacceptable to be more than 15 minutes late, both for business and personal meetings. And if the event is a wedding, graduation, or funeral, it is absolutely unacceptable to be late. - Close your umbrella before entering a building. Shake the water off, and hang it to dry. You can also use a special drying machine if it's available. - Many people respond to someone else's sneeze by saying "Bless you," but this is only acceptable if the sneezer is a close friend or family member. - According to modern business etiquette rules, a woman must wear pantyhose to work and formal receptions. Even on the hottest summer day. If it's too hot, you can wear thigh-highs or pants instead of a dress or a skirt. - A true lady would never refuse food and drinks offered to her. If a host asks what drink she prefers. - A true lady cares about other people's health and safety. - It's unacceptable to blow on your food, which is why a true lady waits for it to cool down naturally. The best way to do it is to take a spoonful of your dish and hold it while you support the conversation. What do other etiquette rules you follow?

What do you think it means to be a true lady? Also, be sure to check these etiquette rules if you wanna be a real lady https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F19UQrXCY7w&t=3s

A "real" and "true" lady would use proper grammar and spelling in her pinned YouTube video comment which includes concluding each sentence with a period (or in this case, a colon) and using proper English, not slang (e.g. "wanna").

I'm not a lady I'm a woman... and if someone sneezes I will say bless you! This is awful.
Rebecca Odell (7 days ago)
If y’all are complaining or mocking the comfortable clothing, I understand, I really do, but if you don’t agree with what the video says, just don’t watch it. I get it, you are entitled to your own freedom of speech, but the person(s) who made those video probably worked hard and doesn’t really need it. Unpopular opinion, yes I know. Just inputting some advice.

To be a real lady, remember to be as shallow as possible. Got it. I do like the not spreading rumors one, but that's just called being a good person.

Thanks but no thanks (except 13)
Hailee Smith (10 days ago)
Wow. I'm calling b.s. while wearing comfortable clothes. Planning on dancing with my hair down later today. Then I'm going to meet with the President and tell him exactly what I think, in whatever I feel like wearing and in whatever tone I choose. Guess I'm too ordinary thank God! 😂 What a joke of a video.
JustWatching2 (11 days ago)
the negative comments reflect the need for this video. The world has become bigger, and like it or not the impressions you give determines how attractive and or influential you are as a woman. Todays women forget the Power and influence a female can have. A Lady Will carry more distance it is not money or family back ground but the poise and dignity that carry you.

Being a lady is different from just being a female. This is how to be a lady, someone who's classy or refined. No one is forcing anyone to follow these rules at all. If you do not like these rules, don't follow them. Simple as that. Remember, bitter isn't a good look on anyone ;)

Someone telling me all my life choices were wrong for 10:00 minutes straight...

Renata FM (22 days ago)
Thank u thank u thank u
Kara Fetterhoff (22 days ago)
Be gracious, treat people with kindness and respect - especially service personnel. Handle compliments gracefully by returning a compliment if you can or just by simply saying thank you. Take pride in the person that you are, and treat others the way you would like to be treated. Man or woman, we should all be judged on the CONTENT OF OUR CHARACTER, not by external trappings like clothes and purses.
Emma Riley (23 days ago)
I will never not wear baggy sweaters and shirts foh
KAMNA NANDA (23 days ago)
Summary of video: 1. Be too conscious about how others perceive you. 2. Turn your life around it.

A lady also knows how to avoid these lame videos. Be yourselves girls. You are the best the way you are and people will accept you for being the true you. Better be an ordinary cute and bubbly girl and be yourself rather than being a lady and change yourself completely. 😊
Galastel (2 months ago)
Too much hustle. I'd rather just be a woman...

Krystle Schulz (2 months ago)
So this video is basically here to tell all the women out there that they aren’t “ladies” because they live in the real world. “A really lady finds time for everything”. That’s insulting and makes it sound like you are calling most people inadequate. “Eating on the go”, again, real world. Not everyone has that kind of time luxury.
Tigerlily (2 months ago)
i wonder how dead inside this voiceover women felt when she finished this video
Therese Isa (2 months ago)
This is ridiculous and tragic. Women are people and need to stop being restricted like this. I say, women, be yourself, trust yourself, you are enough just as you are! Follow your heart, go your own way, and try to become the one you want to be! No more needed.

avoid speaking like a yank for a start.

I was hoping to find things like, how to sit properly and how to act around others in social engagements. They might be fashion rules when it comes to being lady like but these things on the list have kinda taken it to the next level

#1 should have been!!!A lady never betray!!! Isn't it?
Doe 82 (2 months ago)
So, for number 19, it's really comfort or fashion that decides if you are a "true lady". Honestly, that's complete and utter sh*t. Who would want to look good but still feel uncomfortable? Comfort over style any day.

Ok I lost at the baggy clothes one buuut I’m 13 soooo does it really count??
