After doing some new research and also recalling my southern roots which included cotillion and etiquette classes, here are 21 lost lady like traditions that still apply today: Make this your year to rise up, princess. If a man knows that it is etiquette to remain standing until you are seated, be sure to sit promptly as to not leave him standing too long. No rude or shocking language, especially at the table. She gives compliments with sincerity and only when she means it. Your language is a representation of your mind and heart. w=300" data-large-file="https://afroginthefjord.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/seduction-2-2.jpg? w=720" class="size-large wp-image-2373" src="https://afroginthefjord.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/seduction-2-2.jpg? w=720&h=324" alt="© Kristine Lauvrak - 2014" srcset="https://afroginthefjord.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/seduction-2-2.jpg?w=720&h=324 720w, https://afroginthefjord.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/seduction-2-2.jpg? w=1440&h=648 1440w, https://afroginthefjord.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/seduction-2-2.jpg? w=150&h=68 150w, https://afroginthefjord.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/seduction-2-2.jpg? w=300&h=135 300w, https://afroginthefjord.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/seduction-2-2.jpg? w=768&h=346 768w, https://afroginthefjord.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/seduction-2-2.jpg? w=1024&h=461 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 720px) 100vw, 720px" / You might ask yourself when seeing this title: is there really anything to say about seduction in Norway? In Italy one could write about the casanovas and the sexy brunettes agreeing with langourious eyes and loud conversations, in France it would be the born-seductors and the classy and snoby Parisian women teasing men with their red lipstick and long cigarettes. Yes the Norwegian people also have some codes and mysteries surrounding seduction, and they will all be revealed to you now!~ Teachers have been contacting me about students using my webpage as a reference and there has been a question of the legitimacy of it.My background is that I am a genealogist and researcher for over 20 years.I am also open to any questions that anyone may have on a certain subject, please feel free to contact me.The earlier comments were written ten years ago and times have changed for the worse and it deeply saddens me.
My name is—" I have a trick that I will divulge: If I have forgotten somebody's name I'll say to them, "Tell me your name again," and they'll say "Tom," and I'll say "No, no, Tom, your last name." So it is like I knew their first name but [I didn't know] their last name. But I have had cocktail parties from 6pm to 8pm, and people have turned up at 8pm. Today, people have two i Phones on the table and maybe an i Pad on the seat next to them. I have asked people to put away their cell phones because there is nothing ruder than to sit with someone who is cutting their steak and then poking at their i Phone to look at their tweets. Social media is like an addiction and lot of people who would ordinarily be very thoughtful can just be disrespectful and thoughtless.
Acting like a lady is carrying yourself with dignity, which also empowers a man to be a gentleman. If you are going out with a gentleman, he will cover your date.
Many of us want a true gentleman, but I believe we hold the power to the way we are treated in our hands. A lady knows that she deserves to be pursued and does not do so. However, you should always be prepared to pay if the date does not go well or he forgets his wallet.
As a disclaimer I must say they are probably not all revealed here, just those I’ve managed to catch despite poor Norwegian language skills and many cultural misunderstandings.
I found out that the Norwegian art of seduction is based on three basic principles. In any setting (a metro, a party, a bar) a man or a woman will look at you directly in the eyes for several seconds.
