We have to admit that etiquette rules are present in any type of society, but the truth is that it’s quite easy to make mistakes, not only because we are humans and it’s normal to make mistakes, but also because some social etiquettes are still old while our mindsets have changed over time.

However, although there are many people who are actually too polite, which can make you look weird if you exaggerate, some polite habits are really disliked by a lot of people. Some of them were created in different eras when people were guided by other principles and values, and while our society has evolved, some polite habits remained the same – and these etiquette rules can sometimes be considered rude.

For example, holding a door for a lady when you enter a room was considered a very polite and nice gesture a few decades ago, but with the advent of feminism, women have changed their perception and can perceive this gesture as being something rude. In other words, holding the door for a woman when you step into a place can be an insult and she may believe that you consider her weak.

So, to help you avoid these ‘polite’ habits that most people secretly hate, we’ve created a list that will certainly help you improve your social life. Read on to find out more!
