    I have had this intrusive experience when I go to several churches. They immediately want a bunch of personal information instead of patience letting the relationship grow. They turn out to be liars control freaks and very manipulative and abusive with the information. Recently I found a nice church that is not nosy pushy and they seem to be very sweet kind and devoted to Jesus. I could feel God moving in me through their words. I would like to return.

    Ana, I like your comments. But I am thinking...We women need to take care of so many things. A married women need to take care of home, children, husband, carrier, and HERSELF, doctors appointments, school meetings, what to put on a table, and in most cases they need to provide for themselves. And sometimes it is still not enough for a men. When there is time for a great make up, perfect nails...A man only works and expects a lot. I believe young generation mothers are too busy to raise a good quality men. They do not have time to teach them to be a god men and a husband and a PROVIDER.

    Great ideas! I would though add two other points that I find crucial in being an elegant lady: • an elegant lady is always mindful to the environment and the animals. Thus she does not shop unnecessarily, but only the things she actually needs, and she never wears fur. An elegant lady is very compassionate towards animals and she is aware of the suffering that lies behind the fur industry. Furthermore an elegant lady gets involved in different charities concerning the environment and the welfare of the animals. • an elegant lady addresses a person with respect despite the eventual social difference. Even if she might be surrounded at an event by people who do not belong to the affluent world, she will behave and address with full respect and appreciation as if she would discuss with a CEO. An elegant lady does not make social differences and she treats people with same amount of respect.

    It is so true about small details making all the difference. When I decided to wear mostly skirts and I revamped my whole wardrobe, it made me more aware of color coordination and a balance in accessorizing and in the proper fit of clothing. I found myself taking more of an interest in jewelry (to my mother's delight), and how to sit and move in a more feminine way. I have to watch my budget and I wish more people in my city took an interest in a pursuit of elegance, but I can't wait for riches or other people's encouragement. So many people are 'waiting' till they lose weight or get those cosmetic implants or whatever they're waiting for, and why? Time is short, and the small things do matter.

    At the campus where I got Bachelor's degree, other students were mostly rude and disrespectful. In the restaurant provided by the university, the students always would come and sit in my table as there wasn't anyone there, not a single "excuse me" nor "good afternoon" was said. They usually would come in group and start speaking in a very loud volume. Once it was a group of girls talking about very intimate subjects at the table while we had dinner. I was so disgusted that I went to another table. All of these tips are precious, Anna. Thank you! ❤

    The Art of Discretion: I have found that too many American women are particularly nosy with European women. As soon as they meet an elegant, classy, feminine, in-her-power woman from another culture, they become insecure and start asking an avalanche of uncomfortable and indiscreet questions such as: where do you come from, where is your accent from, are you married here, do you have children, what do you do, which neighbourhood do you live (to caliber your financial situation) and much more. This I have found across the whole class spectrum.

    The nosy people who ask a lot of questions especially about what people do and where they live and how rich they're are basically signaling to the world that they're low class social climbers who are in a rush to get into the elite circles and are worried the other elegant looking people are imposters like themselves and are worried they might waste their time getting to know someone who is not gonna be useful in their social climbing. They basically wanna use everyone as a ladder to climb up. Such truly despicable behavior. Rich people have feelings too and they want to be appreciated for who they are as a person not how they can help some thirsty leach to get what he or she wants.

    One thing is particularly irritating for European women, is when American women call us "cute" when we have passed 15 years old. I am in my sixties and American women still qualify me of "cute". Do you have a shortage of vocabulary? Cute does not equal elegant, classy and beautiful.

    Thank you. Your advice is so very helpful. I'm a long haul trucker, but when I go to a warehouse for a pickup or delivery, the dock workers think I am someone who is there to visit a warehouse worker, or they think I am from the main office requesting ppw or information. Lol. They are so shocked to discover I am a trucker who is there to pick up or deliver a load. Yes, it is difficult to be elegant on my job for 6-8 weeks at a time, but it is not impossible. A woman who wants to be feminine, can be feminine if they are willing to put forth some effort. Getting up an hour before my shift to steam clothes, apply cosmetics, eat a healthy snack, and put on a wig makes all the difference. When a woman feels good about her appearance, the whole day just goes better. I believe that no matter where you go, or what you do in life, you can be feminine and make an effort to be elegant. It may not be appreciated in my social circles, but I insist on it because it makes me feel better about myself. Again, thank you for the time and care that you put into your videos. Sincerely, Missi Howard

    I would add two phone-related things: first, don’t put people on speaker-phone in a public place - that’s rude to the people around you AND to the person you’re talking to, who may not realize that their privacy has been compromised. Second, if you are listening to music or a podcast or an audiobook on your phone in public, wear earbuds. Nobody wants to hear your music, and it’s selfish and rude to impose that on others.

They just don't seem to care and they think maybe they want others to hear their junk and ruin everyone lunch With the junk coming from their mouths When most people go out to eat they want o relax and eat peaceful calm enjoy and forget their own cares.
