In my opinion, every woman wants a true gentleman, they want to be treated right and they deserve it. However, we must be and act like a lady to attract a true gentleman.
A lady displays self respect, class, appreciation, and etiquette. She does not allow her mood to affect her manners. Being a classy lady doesn’t mean that we should be snobby or conceited, but that we should have dignity, consideration, and moderation in our daily actions.
Be a girl with a mind, a woman with attitude, and a lady with class
Classy is when a woman has everything to flaunt but chooses not to show it.

Healthy characteristics of a moderne day lady:
A lady is never above thanking someone, no matter who or how small it seems. She is sincerely thankful and always expresses her gratitude in a meaningful way. She is humble, a lady gracefully allows others to shine and have their moments.
A lady sets the precedent in any given situation. She knows that she has influence and uses it to lead people to the goodness of their heart.
A lady knows how to navigate various social situations and settings with ease and confidence.
A lady is consistent across time and circumstances. When she makes a commitment to herself, she doesn’t allow pressure or trends to cause her to waver.
A lady does the right thing even when no one else is looking. She takes the time to find a trash can rather than leaving it on the sidewalk.
She says what she means and means what she says. A lady is direct, never passive aggressive, she does not leave room for interpretation.
A lady is aware of the experience others are having with her. She quickly realizes when she is in the wrong and needs to apologize to someone. She takes pride in her appearance at all times.
Thinks before speak
A lady takes a moment before speaking her mind to ask herself if the comment is necessary, kind or helpful. She reconsiders making a reckless comment if the situation calls for.
Thoughtful gift giver
A lady gives gifts that shows the recipient that she cares about what they like. It doesn’t just have to be for special occasions.
Uses words wisely
A lady refrains from gossip and negative talk, remembering that her words are the reflection of the content in her heart.
Always try her very best to steer clear of gossip. It’s unbecoming to spread gossip, and when she’s actually the focus of the gossip, it’s quite hurtful. Everyone’s fighting their own battles, and a lady doesn’t want to air someone else’s dirty laundry.
She represents herself with class and dignity on social media. She does her best to respond to comments and to always tag each person in her photos. To post the photo, or not to post the photo. When in doubt, always think twice.
A lady practices discipline and self-control with alcohol consumption, especially when she may be surrounded by those trying to abstain.
Being kind doesn’t mean you are a people pleaser. A lady has boundaries in place regarding what she will and will not allow and people know where the line is drawn usually without her saying anything.
A lady listens to others with grace and does not attempt to overshadow the speaker with comments like, “Oh I’ve done that too” or “I already knew that” “I’ve been there before, you’re not telling me anything new!”
A lady does the good thing even when it is not expected of her.
Heart for justice
A lady has a strong sense of right and wrong and is passionate to see the oppressed redeemed. She is always learning and remains teachable. A lady is constantly growing, is thirsty for wisdom and is never a “know it all.”
Sometimes things in life does not flow our way, but we just have to mutter up and face it … And last but not least . . . Even when they are an ( _ _ _ ) retain your class! 🙂 (hint hint rhymes with class)
Bonjour Monday! 🙂
