BEING A LADY, NOT JUST A FEMALE
When I was a little girl walking down the sidewalk with my grandmother, I said "Look at that lady!" She said "Call her a woman. We are not sure yet if she is a lady or not." Being a lady meant that she had been raised in a moral and pleasing manner, with etiquette and graciousness and other nurturing qualities.
Have you ever wished you knew how to be like the feminine, charming ladies that are in the old movies? Have you ever wondered why they move differently, how they dress so charmingly, how they have manners and poise and graciousness? Do you think they were born that way? They weren't. They had to learn these things from finishing schools, etiquette classes, poise classes, girls' schools, modeling schools. Now you can learn these things again, how to bring out your charms and gifts of being a lady.
Here are a couple of sites online to help you polish yourself up and gain the magic and charm that gives women the beauty she was meant to have; the ways of being different from men that makes you so irresistible.
Up until about 1975, there were books written about how to sit, stand, walk, use your hands gracefully, how to deal with manners and difficult situations, grooming, and everything that separates us from the male race, but those books are almost impossible to find these days, and when I looked for some for my own girls, or looked online, I found many lessons on how a cross-dresser could be more feminine, but that same teacher would not take on girls or ladies to teach THEM the same skills!
Our world has changed so much, that if a space ship visited earth in 1975, then came back today, they might say "Oops, this is not the right planet. Nothing is the same except that there are still humans, animals and homes and cars, but they think and act completely different, their society is completely different."
If you know of more sites that deal with being more feminine, or being a better wife, mother and homemaker, feel free to share them with me in your comments, and I will consider adding them to my blog.
