How To Be a Real Woman?

What does it mean to be a real woman? Is there one true way to be a real woman? What makes a real woman a real woman? Is it something you are born with or something you learn? Is it a set of behaviors, or is it something deeper, like a spirit?

These are questions that have been asked for centuries. But today, it seems there is no clear-cut answer. Despite this, many people have tried to put forward a set of rules governing womanhood. Here are five of the most popular rules of womanhood, and how you can break them.

No Perturbating With Men

One of the first rules of womanhood is to not let men perturb you. Some people, perhaps even you, may think this rule is archaic, especially in this day and age. After all, if women are meant to be independent and proud, then why should they not be allowed to speak with or interact with men?

While it is true that being interdependent is a positive trait, it does not mean that you have to be vulgar! Just because men and women are meant to be together does not mean that they have to be mutually exclusive. One of the positive aspects of the #MeToo movement is that it has helped to break down archaic social barriers, especially as it concerns women and men being able to have a conversation without feeling like they are being vulgar or insulting. So while the “no perturbating with men” rule may not be for everyone, there is definitely something to be said for being able to have an open conversation with your better half.

No Excessive Shopping

Shopping is something that often comes up when people think of feminine pursuits. After all, who doesn’t love a good deal? But, as with most rules, there is more than one way to interpret whether or not shopping for clothes is “excessive.” For example, do you go overboard or does it fit within reason? What is the intended look of your wardrobe? Are you trying to be controversial or do you just want to follow the trends? Are you happy with what you have or do you feel you need to upgrade?

Some women may say that shopping is an indispensable part of feeling like a “real woman,” and in some ways, that may be true. There is a clear correlation between feeling powerful and confident and being able to go into a shop and find something that makes you feel that way. So, while shopping may not be for everyone, for those who enjoy the experience, it can be a good way to connect with your feminine side and feel like a real woman.

No Make-up

Many people, both men and women, feel that makeup is something men should not be touching or looking at. But that is not always the case. Some women, especially older women, feel that makeup is a way of life. They may feel that their femininity is threatened if they stop wearing it. So while makeup may be a way of life for some people, it is certainly not an essential part of being a “real woman.”

Of course, there are various levels of makeup. Some women wear very little makeup, while others heavily rely on it to feel that they are fully presentable. If you don’t wear makeup and feel confident enough to go without it, then there is no reason to not do so. It is all about personal preference.

No Dressing In Vain

Dressing in vain is one of the worst things a woman can do. Why? Because it takes away from the beauty of the clothes you are wearing. The clothes you wear should always make you feel like a woman, and a woman with confidence, who does not need to constantly dress in order to feel that way.

Now, some women may not see dressing in vain as a bad thing. After all, they may believe that fashion is subjective, and they may like to experiment with different looks. But for the most part, dressing in vain comes with a cost. It takes time away from getting things done, it is usually an indication of low self-esteem, and it can make you feel less like a woman.

No Scared

Do you ever feel like a woman whenever you feel the need to shave, wax, or pluck? If so, then you are probably Scared, and that is not a good thing. For centuries, men have been shaving off their facial hair, which was commonly referred to as “manscaping.” This is one of the first rules of manhood, and it ensures that you retain your manly charms. It also gives you a clean-shaven appearance, which many women find extremely attractive. So, if you feel that a five-o’clock shadow can make you look more masculine, then why not give it a try? After all, your manliness is unique to you and no one else, so you shouldn’t let anyone tell you what to do with your facial hair!

No Taboo

What is feminine and what is masculine can be a very touchy subject. Many people believe that there are certain topics that should not be discussed between men and women. Despite this, some topics, such as money, are very acceptable to talk about. Other topics, such as politics or religion, are considered “men’s topics” and should not be brought up in conversation with a woman, even if she is your best friend. Is money the root of all evil? Or is it the means to an end? Is there a set way to be a man or a woman? These are questions that have been asked for centuries, and there still is no clear-cut answer.

Real Women Real Women

Why shouldn’t men be allowed to be real women? What makes you so special that men should not be allowed to be just like you? The truth is, there is no such thing as a perfect woman. Everyone has their quirks and their special qualities that make them unique. However, that does not mean that they cannot be real women as well. Being a real woman does not necessarily mean that you have to follow the rules set forth above. It merely means that you are a real woman in the eyes of the people around you, and that is something to be proud of.

Being a real woman does not come with an instruction manual. It comes with a set of guidelines, albeit sometimes difficult ones, that are followed by many, including yourself. So while the question of “How to be a real woman?” may be difficult to answer, at least you know the answer you are looking for. The answer is: you just have to be yourself and be proud.
