The “Rules” Of A Lady

A lady, by definition, is a woman who is refined, polite and well-spoken.  You may argue with me on this one but, let’s face it, there’s a steep decline on lady-like behavior among women today.

Well, I came across some rules that we girls could follow.  You may agree with some or even all of these or you may not.  No one’s forcing you either way.  Note that I also did not make these rules.  Need I reiterate that I found them.  Hence, don’t flame me for them.  Just thought I could share them.  I will also be updating these with new rules that you ladies suggest and those that I find in books and online.

 Note: If you find any duplicates, please let me know so I can fix it.  Thanks!

So, anyways, I now present to you The “Rules” Of A Lady:

  1. Play hard to get.
  2. Be the woman a man needs, not the woman that needs a man.
  3. Always accept a compliment.
  4. If he leaves or gives up on you, remember, it’s his lost.  Not yours.
  5. If he doesn’t respect you, then you deserve better.
  6. You’re beautiful and no one has the right to tell you you’re not.
  7. Don’t fall for a guy who isn’t willing to catch you.
  8. Embrace your flaws and be true to who you really are.
  9. Never lose faith in finding your perfect someone.
  10. Look like a butterfly, sting like a bee.
  11. Cover up.  Being a mystery is more sexy than showing every inch of yourself off.
  12. Being single doesn’t mean you’re weak.  It means you’re strong enough to wait for what you really deserve.
  13. The little black dress is a classic for a reason.
  14. A real lady holds her head high, but never her nose.
  15. Never underestimate the power of a warm greeting.
  16. For the love of decency, never chew with your mouth open.
  17. A lady knows her limits no matter what, stick to your gun.
  18. Never make him carry your chihuahua unless you don’t want him around for very long.
  19. If you expect him to give you girl time, expect to give him guy time.
  20. A subtle, yet noticeable lip bite possesses exceptional power.  Use with caution.
  21. True beauty comes from within.
  22. Confidence is sexy.
  23. Never let a man define you.  Be amazing on your own.
  24. You might feel worthless to one person, but you’re priceless to another.  Don’t ever forget your value.
  25. Don’t get your hopes up, don’t let your guard down.
  26. If you’re not worth the trouble then he’s not worth the time.
  27. Be refined, polite and well-spoken.
  28. Act like a lady, think like a man.
  29. Be classy and fabulous always.
  30. Always be yourself around him.  If he can’t accept you for your quirks, then he’s not worth it.
  31. Remember: if he wants to, he will.
  32. Your dresses should be tight enough to show you’re a woman, but loose enough to show you’re a lady.
  33. If you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.
  34. Never regret something that once made you smile.
  35. Be brave, be bold and the guy will be yours.
  36. A true lady doesn’t start fights, but sure knows how to finish them.
  37. Make him chase you.
  38. Do not stereotype guys; they’re definitely not all the same.
  39. Always classy.  Never trashy.  Just a little nasty.
  40. Just as men shouldn’t play with women’s hearts, women shouldn’t play with men’s hearts as well.
  41. If you don’t stand for yourself, no one will.
  42. Arch your spine, and shoulders back.  This is a good posture.  You are not confident until you decide to be.
  43. Never underestimate the power of a name.  Use them.  Be remembered.
  44. You will never be beautiful unless you’re happy.
  45. Chew like you have a secret.
  46. Always have a comeback.
  47. Maintain your mystery; men love a good hunt.
  48. One can never be too classy.
  49. If he does not have a chance, tell him.  Don’t lead him on and make him think that he has a chance when he does not.
  50. To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.
  51. Don’t wait for Prince Charming to come and save you.  Remember, being independent is more attractive to men.
  52. If you love him, tell him.  Chances are, he’ll feel the same about you.
  53. Flirt with him enough to show your interest.  But tease him enough to make him chase you.
  54. You will never find the right guy if you are looking for the wrong reasons.
  55. Never turn around to look back.  Without a doubt, he’s still looking at you.
  56. Skirts should be like twitter posts; long enough to cover the subject but short enough to keep things interesting.
  57. No man is worth your tears, and the one who is won’t make you cry.
  58. Beauty gets the attention, but personality gets the heart.
  59. You’re beautiful in every single way.

  61. It’s better to be hated for who you are than to be loved for someone you’re not.
  62. Anorexia is a disease.  Not a fashion statement.
  63. Modesty isn’t always overrated.  A little mystery never hurts anyone.
  64. Don’t just expect to find love, wait and it will come.
  65. A guy doesn’t ever have to be more than a friend, sometimes things are better that way.
  66. Ladies should never hit a man either.  Violence isn’t classy.
  67. You shouldn’t need to raise your voice.  If you’re dealing with a person who won’t listen unless you speak forcefully, then they aren’t worth dealing with.
  68. Never apologize for what you feel. It’s like saying sorry for being real.
  69. A man willing to do anything just to place a smile on your face is one worth keeping.
  70. Be happy.  Someone could be falling for your smile.
  71. Never make a man a priority in your life if you are just an option in his.
  72. A lady should be able to make a man smile with her clothes on.
  73. Talk loud enough so people can hear you, but soft enough so he’ll have to lean closer.
  74. Being different doesn’t mean you’re uncanny.  You’re just limited edition.
  75. A man forgets, but never forgives.  But a lady forgives.  But never forgets.
  76. In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.
  77. Always dress like you’re going to see your worst enemy.
  78. Leave the rumor-spreading and trash talking to Gossip Girl.
  79. Always arrive at a dinner party 15 minutes late.  There’s nothing wrong with being fashionably late.
  80. Never show you’re intimidated, it shows weakness.
  81. Remember: the treasure doesn’t do the hunting.
  82. Make a man fall for your intelligence, not for your body and your double Ds.
  83. Always act like you are wearing an invisible crown.
  84. Respect from others come from self-respect.
  85. No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
  86. A lady should not swear.  Class is defined by elegance and dignity, not by vulgar language.
  87. It’s better to know and be disappointed than to never know and always wonder.
  88. Being intelligent is sexy, don’t play stupid.
  89. Just because someone invites you to drama doesn’t mean you have to RSVP.
  90. Look up the definition of sophistication.  Embody it.
  91. Ladies, never label yourself as a dime.  Keep in mind that real women don’t worry about being dimes because real men don’t carry change.
  92. Remember: all limitations are self-imposed.
  93. Be the flame, not the moth.
  94. A lady should never throw a punch, the world is already as cruel as it is, let the universe take care of them.
  95. Take a risk, even if you fall.  Because if that’s what you really want, it should be worth it all.
  96. When asked for suggestions, don’t be afraid to give your opinions.  Being assertive is an attractive feature, indecisiveness is not.
  97. You were born an original.  Don’t become a copy.
  98. A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left.
  99. Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.
  100. If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.  If he doesn’t want you, nothing can make him stay.
  101. Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius.  It’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
  102. If you must say yes, say it with an open heart.  If you must say no, say it without fear.
  103. If he’s willing to cheat with you, he’s willing to cheat on you.
  104. Crying does not mean you are weak.  Not crying does not mean you are strong.  Never be afraid of being yourself.
  105. Every day is a fashion show and the world is your runway.  So always dress your best and walk with confidence.
  106. Success is the best revenge.
  107. Never be afraid to love.  You’ll sabotage yourself without knowing.
  108. The moment you stop looking for something, you will find it.
  109. It’s better to be alone and dignified, than to have companionship and be taken advantage of.
  110. Beauty is about living your life and being happy with yourself inside and out.  Not worrying about what people think of you.
  111. Don’t let doubt cause you to ignore your heart.  Trust your heart.
  112. Yelling during an argument means you’ve already lost the fight.
  113. Remember that if you give a second chance you’re saying that you have forgiven his past.  Don’t keep holding it against him.

  115. Your smile is the sexiest curve on your entire body.
  116. Love never fails.  If it fails, then it’s not love.
  117. Be generous with expressions of gratitude such as: “Thank You” and “I appreciate that”.
  118. If there is anything a lady should blow, it should be his mind.
  119. Dress up, not down.
  120. If you love two men, choose the second.  Because if you fell in love with the second, then you never truly loved the first.
  121. Don’t expect anyone to love or respect you if you don’t fully love yourself first.
  122. Looks may attract them, but your personality is what keeps them there.
  123. Fill the void in your life with work and accomplishment, not self-destruction.  Think of the woman you could be.
  124. Ladies, it’s okay to cry.  Just don’t forget that God has prepared the right one for you since the day you were born.
  125. A bitch barks and bites.  A lady behaves.
  126. Never make fun of a love-struck fool because one day, it could be you.
  127. Don’t settle for less than you deserve.  Wait until you find a boy who treats you like a queen.

  141. Never lie to someone who trusts you and never trust someone who lies to you.
  142. You’re not supposed to look back, you’re supposed to keep going.
  143. Be a lover, not a fighter, but always fight for what you love.  No matter what.
  144. Keep calm and carry on.
  145. You can never fully understand what someone is going through.  But, try to understand.
  146. Life isn’t about finding yourself.  It’s about creating yourself.

  148. Let your past make you better, not bitter.
  149. Always leave loved ones with loving words.  It may be the last time you see them.

  153. Forget what hurt you in the past.  But, never forget what it taught you.
  154. Never let people get to you.  They can’t pull the trigger if you don’t hand them the gun.
  155. Don’t be afraid of change.  You may lose out on something good but you might gain something even better.
  156. No matter how many coins you toss into the fountain or how many fingers you cross, if it’s not meant to be, it won’t happen.

  162. Make wise decisions and you’ll have nothing to regret later.
  163. Never put someone else down to make yourself feel better.
  164. If a man whistles at you, do not respond.  You are a lady, not a dog.

  166. Cinderella didn’t need to take off her dress to get her Prince Charming, and neither do you.
  167. What doesn’t kill you, will only make you stronger.  Remember that.
  168. Don’t let a stranger put words in your mouth.  Say how you really feel.
  169. You will never be better than his mother.  Don’t compete.  Any man who puts his mother at number one is worth it.

  179. Happiness is the secret to all beauty.  There is no beauty without happiness.

  182. You are stronger than you seem, braver than you believe, and smarter than you think you are.
  183. Treat your man with the same respect he gives you.  Respect his feelings and in return, he will respect you above all the rest.
  184. Before you assume, learn the facts.  Before you judge, understand why.  Before you hurt someone, feel.  Before you speak, think.
  185. If you love someone, tell him or her.  Forget about the rules or the fear of looking ridiculous.  What is truly ridiculous is passing up on an opportunity to tell someone that your heart is invested in him or her.
  186. Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

  189. The less you care, the happier you will be.
  190. An ugly personality destroys a beautiful face.

  199. Never give up on anybody.  Miracles happen every day.
  200. Just because you’ve failed once, it doesn’t mean you’re going to fail at everything.
  201. Everything will be okay in the end.  If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.

  203. We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.
  204. Your face is not a coloring book.  Go easy on the make up or you’ll look like a clown.
  205. Fall in love with someone who deserves your heart.  Not someone who plays with it.

  215. Avoid running back to that one person you need to walk away from.

  219. When your friends are having problems with their relationship, the best thing to do is to stay out of it.
  220. Stay strong and never give up.

  224. Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that’s not meant to be.
  225. If you go away during someone’s struggle, don’t expect to be present during their success.
  226. Beauty is not measure by the amount of make up on your skin or the price of the clothes you wear.  Beauty is what’s on the inside.

  229. You do not deserve a point of view if the only thing you see is you.
