6 Things the Modern Woman Can Learn From Lizzy


6 Things the Modern Woman Can Learn
From Lizzy in Pride and Prejudice.

  1. Don’t assume.

    Until you know the full story (from the horse’s mouth as they say) don’t assume the one who told you is telling the truth. Also don’t assume you know what’s going on by pictures or comments on social media or found out second-hand. Talk to him. Find out for sure. Then you can make an informed decision.

  1. Don’t overlook a quiet guy for a shiny new penny.

    If he sounds too good to be true, he usually is. Guys that boast about what they have or can do (or alternately how hard they’d had it, what trials and tribulations they’ve gone through) are usually just blowing smoke. Beware of tall tales and guys who like to toot their own horn. The quiet guys can be gems in the rough. He may be shy or not used to social situations, but has a heart of gold. Give him a second look and get to know him. Quiet guys are usually extremely loyal.

  1. Don’t give up on love.

    It’s really never too late to find your soulmate–or just somebody to have fun with. You deserve to be loved and share love with someone else and you never know when it will appear in the most unlikely of places. When it comes, don’t be closed to it. Don’t be so sure you are done that you are blind to the possibilities.

  1. Learn to forgive and be forgiven.

    Be gracious and allow him to apologize or change his mind just like you expect to be treated. Don’t expect him to be against reconcile, especially if the fight was your fault. Sometimes fights and the conversations after make for a stronger bond. Not to mention great make-up sessions!

  1. Learn to compromise.

    Not your morals or ideals, but perhaps your vision of Mr. Right might need to be skewed. I would never advise you to change your beliefs or standards, but maybe you have an unreal vision of THE ONE. Learn to let him have his beliefs and you yours, but they do not always have to match and sometimes it’s more fun if they don’t. How much fun will it be to live out your life with someone who is an exact copy of you? Our differences make life interesting.

  1. Be like Lizzy and voice your opinions.

    The man who doesn’t want your real opinion, isn’t the type you should pursue. A smart man will want to hear what you have to say and talk with you like a human being. A smart man wants a smart woman with her own views, interests, and hobbies.
