10 Social etiquette to help you stand out in social events

Etiquette is not just about which fork to use. It’s showing respect for yourself and everyone else in your little corner of the planet. In a world where rudeness often reigns, why not stand out for being polite and thoughtful? You don’t even have to go to charm school or binge-watch Downton Abbey to learn the rules! Here are 10 easy ways to share more kindness and less saltiness this festive season coming .

1) Avoid Man-spreading

Be conscious of how you're sitting, especially while seating with others . "Man-spreading" can cause more than just an eye roll.

Try to occupy 1 seat for yourself and your belongings, do not carry a lot of stuff that will force you to grab the next seat for your handbag and coats.

2) Leave curiosity behind you .

While meeting people for the first time, or going in social event sometimes comes with alot of excitement and curiosity, and if uncontrolled ,leads to ask unpleasant questions .we should avoid asking or talking unpleasant things about people .

3) Hold the Door for the Person Behind You

It is a good practice to facilitate the entrance for the person after you, And if someone holds the door for you, always say "thank you"!

4) Step Outside to Answer Phone Calls

Sometimes you have to take the call—but is it always that important? Besides, it’s not so fun to hear your conversation when we’re trapped behind you in line. Put your phone away during meal time.

5) Ask Permission to Use Someone's First Name

Yes, it’s a super-casual society, but it’s never wrong to use a title until you know what the person prefers.

6)Clean Up After Yourself

At home. At work. At a friend’s house.

7) Push Your Chair In When You Leave a Table

Don't make someone else do it for you.

8) Don't take photos & videos without permission.

Ask your host, or people close to you before your take a picture in their house.

Avoid taking video including other people without their prio-conscent.

9) Help Someone Who's Clearly Struggling

The next time you see someone straining to reach something on the highest shelf at the grocery store, help her out! Offer Up Your Seat

If you’re in perfectly good health, offer your seat to anyone who is either in poor health or pregnant.

10) Skip Controversial or Nosy Topics at Parties.

No politics, religion, asking when they're getting pregnant, or if he is the one! how much weight she lost. We’re all here to have fun not start a debate, remember?.

I hope these 10 Social etiquette tips are going to help you network and exude elegance in your next event .
