Ever felt that you don’t match the requirements of the basic lady etiquette? You are not alone! However, as much as some of us lovely ladies try to join in on the good manners and tidy hair, the universe turns around and says no. Here are the 26 signs that the lady life isn’t for you:

1. You’re Unwillingly 100% Accident Prone

You’re covered in bruises, leaves in your hair and probably covered in bird feces and it’s only 2pm on a Monday. Overall, the universe does nothing for your grace and poise.

2. You Probably Fall Over A Lot Too

No doubt you do: us class of girl literally can’t help it! Maybe it’s our feet, maybe it’s because we’re thinking about cheeseburgers or were wearing shoes too high for us, either way we’ve fallen over so many times that there’s just no point mentioning it to anyone anymore.

3. For You, There Is No Dancing Etiquette

The music flows through you, making your limbs do whatever feels good: however, this usually results in smacking numerous people in the face, people taking pictures of you and of course, falling over.

4. You Can’t Help But Get Anxious Going To Formal Events

You feel like you’ve completely forgotten any kind of lady training you were given growing up. All you can do is at least try to look like lady, hope there’s only one kind of fork, knife, spoon and not make a fool out of yourself.

5. You Rock The “I’ve Just Rolled Out of Bed Look” Pretty Well

The fact that this “look” became a thing was incredibly convenient to you. Often enough people ask what hair product do you use to get that Russell Brand look, the answer always being “I just don’t brush my hair.”.

5. Telling People About Your Bodily Functions Is In No Way “Oversharing” To You

It’s typical of you to break conversational boundaries without even thinking about it.

6. Exercise Isn’t Really Your Thing

Not to mention you’ve never been to an aerobics class, the thought of spin class exhausts you and you pretty only exercise when you realise you’ve gained some unwanted pounds. Why can’t we just eat fried chicken and suffer no consequences?

7. Your Mother Is Constantly Throwing Shade At You

“Would you not wear something a bit more… feminine?” Yep, mothers have no shame in telling us what they think of our appearance. They miss the days when they could dress you in whatever pink stuff they wanted. She respects your independence, but that doesn’t stop the judgemental looks.

8. You’d Rather Wear Tights Than Shave Your Legs

Ugh the weekend is upon us and you’ve a few social engagements to attend. Depending on the season, the amount of tights you have that don’t have holes in them, and your energy levels you might shave your legs. It’s just so devastating when you shave your legs, and it wasn’t worth it.

9. You Identify More With J-Law More Than You Should

Everybody loves J-Law, they think she’s so quirky and cute. But to you she’s essentially your better looking famous twin: she’s lazy, falls over a lot, and loves pizza. But she gets away with it: tell us how J-Law.

10. … And Liz Lemon

“Will there be free food?” Food on our planet is the centre of the world, no doubt you watch food shows all day long, and get insanely jealous of Man vs. Food’s – Adam Richman. Liz, like us, makes most of her decisions around her appetite, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

11. You Don’t Understand The Concept of Eating Lettuce


12. You Own More Underwear With Cartoons Characters On Them Than Thongs Or Anything Involving Lace

Underwear with Kermit the Frog on them are cute! Plus they’re way more comfortable that a string inserting itself in between your buttcheeks. 

13. You’re Secretly Proud of Your Ability To Burp The Alphabet

Most people can’t do that! Or at least the whole thing… All I know is that I don’t have any other party trick and this one always impresses people, even the lads!

14. Drinking Rosè Is The Closest You Come To Anything Pink

Nothing against pink, we just don’t tend to wear much of it. Rosè is alcoholic, and by no means should it be discriminated against for being pink, but it’s definitely the most pink thing in our lives.

15. Swearing Like A Sailor Is Just How You Speak

We know other words, but when you fall over all the time and constantly fumble into situations with the least amount of grace, you curse a whole lot!

16. You Don’t Use Cutlery As Much As You Probably Should

I didn’t know eating pizza with a knife and fork is a thing? Why is it a thing? The one food you’re allowed use your hands to consume and the mannerly folk take it away from us… it’s not fair.

17. Finding Food In Your Hair Is A Daily Occurrence

You could have dinner, really focus on your food to mouth motor skills with you hair in a towel and still manage to find bits of cornflakes in it. Another minor mishap in the life of struggling lady.

18. You Sometimes Forget Basic Manners

People who are not completely forward with are annoying. In order to get answers you sometimes forget to ask politely. You often confront the pink elephant within the room much to the annoyance of others, but you honestly couldn’t give a flying feck.

19. But At Heart You Know You’d Couldn’t Be Happier Being Any Other Way

Sure look, at the end of the day you’re able to turn around and laugh at yourself. You see your life as a show on comedy central and you’d prefer to have food in your hair everyday for the rest of your life rather than try to be anyone else. Plus we have way more fun than ladies.

If only there was a guide to being a woman.  A list of things that every modern, 21st century girl should know how to do, no questions asked, no second thoughts. Well ask no more ladies, for here it is. Go forth and conquer.

1. How To Walk In Heels

There are two types of women in this world. Those who live in heels and those who look on them with a mixture of fear and loathing. That said, being able to swag a little in heels is something that every woman should learn how to do. You’ll never know when it could come in handy…

2. How To Stop Street Harassment

Even in the modern, equal values world of today, there are many, many men who feel that openly harassing women on the street is acceptable. So the next time it happens to you, stop and turn the tables on them. “Nice arse sweetheart”, should do nicely.

3. How To Embrace Your Natural Self

Yes, make-up is great. It helps to embrace and highlight what God has given us. It makes us photo ready and fabulous (in our eyes) However, far too many women are far too dependent on make-up and need to learn to go. Wear less make-up more often!

4. How To Control Your Hormones

If you turn into an axe wielding maniac once a month, then perhaps now is the time to learn to control that anger. Easier said than done, yes, but simple things like running and eating well can all help to control it. It’s worth a little time investment.

5. How To Out-Wit Any Man

Being witty, smart, sharp and sarcastic is a skill that every woman should possess. 

6. How To Drive

Never depend on someone else to drive you around. It’s not even about owning your own car, even though that is clearly something we all want, but just knowing how to get yourself or anyone for that matter, from A-B, is an underrated skill at best.

7. How To Dress Appropriately

For any occasion. Buy a smart dress, blazer, tailored trousers and decent shoes and you’ll have pretty much covered all basis. Just never, ever attend a funeral in sequins. Ever.

8. How To Live Healthily

Learn how to cook an egg, wash some lettuce and go for a jog every once in a blue moon and you’re half way there sunshine. Just remember that McDonald's and the couch does not a healthy body make.

9. How To Be Independent

No woman out there should ever utter that she ‘needs’ a man. Don’t get me wrong, men are great and all but technically, the only thing we need men for is reproducing. What you need, is to learn to do things for yourself. Even if it’s something as simple as eating by yourself, do it.

10. How To Shop In A Pharmacy

You all know what I’m talking about here. You don’t have time to pop into the giant sized Boots in town, so instead you pop into your local pharmacy for all of your tampon/ contraceptive/ hairy needs. But instead of buying exactly what it is you need, you load up on hair clips, nail varnish and band aids, as if, somehow, it’s going to distract from all of the other stuff. It won’t.

11. How To Cut Bad Influences From Your Life

This can take the form of bad habits such as smoking, excess drinking or drug use, or people who are negatively influencing your life. 

12. How To D.I.Y.

Pick up that toolbox and get to grips with the hammer and nails. No, that was not a metaphor for anything dirty, in case that was what you were thinking. We're talking about learning how to put up a shelf, hang a picture, fix that broken shower curtain. Rock that tool belt girl.

13. How To Get What You Really Want

Whether it’s getting that promotion or getting the object of your affections, you must learn how to get exactly what you want in this life, by whatever means necessary. To do so with respect, manners and the acceptable measure of force, is something that every woman should learn how to do. Without question.

14. How To Not Sweat The Small Stuff

Obviously, there are things you should most definitely care about. Your health, your family, your career. Things that you should not give a shit about include, caring what people think of you, cellulite, drunk texting your ex, not wanting to settle for the first man that comes along, being single and happy or being loved up and happy. Let the haters hate and you’ll be so much happier in your own skin. Promise.

Life is for living, and sometimes we all let social pressure get on top of us. We allow society to tell us how we should live, instead of actually living. Here are some things us ladies should never feel guilty about:

1. Enjoying social beverages


As long as your drinking habits haven’t escalated into problem territory, then you order that Long Island Iced tea and you enjoy every drop of it. There’s nothing wrong with sitting back with few beers and enjoying yourself with friends.

2. Having a healthy social life


There’s nothing like a night out on the tiles to lift a bad mood. If, every so often, you like to kick back and enjoy some good, old fashioned twerking to the beats of Dirty Dancing, then power to you. Don’t let the haters tell you otherwise.

3. Wanting to see the world


Or don’t, it’s completely your decision. Do what makes YOU happy – not anybody else!

4. Having your cake and eating it too


If you want that second piece of biscuit cake or that third bag of Meanies…have it! Balance is the key.

5. Not living in the gym


While going to the gym is a really great way to feel good and keep fit and healthy, don’t let yourself get worked up if you miss a day.

5. Being a proud single pringle


Make the most of that single life, you’ll never regret it!

6. Or be proud and loved up


You’ll hopefully never regret this one either!

7. Being well mannered


So what you can’t tell that waiter he is being an a**, he probably knows anyway.

8. Not being a slave to fashion


So you don’t spend the vast majority of your wages in River Island? In this celebrity influenced, appearance drenched society, not dressing just like everyone else, is never a thing to feel guilty about.

9. Having odd tastes


Have you inherited a love of all things retro from your parents? Do you fail to see the appeal of Walter White or does the Game of Thrones hysteria baffle you? Not to worry. You fly that odd flag high and proud. It’s what separates and differs you. No guilt necessary.

The last thing in the world any self-respecting young woman wants to do is come across as, *whispers* desperate.

In order to move things forward, you need to find out if he likes you too and this involves adapting a few juvenile tactics. So, it’s a little Transition Year, but who cares! We have to look after number one. Here are some easy ways to get a little closer to him .

1. At work
If you work with him, tell him you are running to the coffee shop and ask if he would like anything. If he is into you and isn’t too busy he might even offer to come with you – perfect! If not, at least you have the coffee to deliver on the way back.  And if he growls no and waves you out of his office, do you really want to date him anyway?

2. In your building
If you live in the same building as him, call around one Sunday and say you are baking, dropped an egg and could you maybe steal one of his. While he fetches it, have a quick scope around for girly things. If you see none then call around during the week with a replacement egg for him – cute and quirky excuse to see him again.

3. On your commute
This one is a little more tricky because you need to not come across as a stalker. As in, don’t say: “I saw your name on your work badge and you look so different in a tracksuit rather than shirt and tie in your Facebook photos”. Eek. If he is reading ask him if it’s any good and that you were recommended it before.
