21 Things Only Southern Women Can Relate To

Only a true Southern woman will understand everything on this list!

  1. 1

    Bojangles = Love

    If one thing can help you get through a tough time, that's a meal at Bojangles, and you know some sweet tea and Bo-rounds have helped you survive a difficult day.

  2. 2

    Sweet Tea Is All You Need

    Let's be real: black tea, green tea, white tea... who needs it, when there's sweet tea, truly God's gift to us all.

  3. 3

    Chivalry Is Alive

    ... and it matters. A true gentleman is a dream for any southern gal - and we notice good manners when we see them.

  4. 4

    Tupperware. Parties.

    Learn it, live it, love it - it's a way of life. While these may lighten the wallet, they also lighten the stress, as there's nothing like a good gathering with a group of friends.

  5. 5

    Camouflage Is a Necessity

    You may not always like it, but you'll find a way to make it stylish, no matter the season.

  6. 6

    Fashion Is Always Fun

    No one knows quite how to show off their style like a southern girl! Rain or shine, we've got ourselves covered from head to toe.

  7. 7

    The Giant Baby Bow

    No one knows where this tradition began, but we all know it will be with us forever: no newborn baby girl will survive without a bow at least the size of her head.

  8. 8

    It's Too Hot for Those Leather Seats

    We love to live with 'em, but on those hot July days, we'd sure love to live without 'em. What girl hasn't had to peel her skin off those seats that look so great - but feel way too hot?

  9. 9

    Yes, Sir

    How many times were you punished as a kid for forgetting to be polite? Probably too may to count.

  10. 10

    Coke = Soda = Pop

    When we say "Coke," we mean all kinds of soda. And, yes, we'll specify - if you ask nicely.

  11. 11


    If you ever get lost, you know exactly where you are based on which church you happen to be near.

  12. 12

    Monograms Are a Way of Life

    If you haven't had something monogrammed, you're probably not a true Southern woman.

  13. 13

    Thank You Notes

    And speaking of "ways of life," you know better than anyone that the proper response to any occasion is... a handwritten thank you.

  14. 14

    Local High School and College Sports

    If there's one thing Friday Night Lights got absolutely right, it's the reality of sports rivalries. It's just in your blood.

  15. 15

    Y'All Is the Real Deal

    We all know - "y'all" is the proper word for any collected group of people.

  16. 16

    Hair Matters

    If there's one thing we never leave the house without checking a half dozen times - it's our hair.

  17. 17

    Sensibility Rules the Day

    If you need something done, ask a Southerner. If you need something planned, prepared, and done perfectly, ask a Southern woman - and you'll get exactly what you asked for. And then some.

  18. 18

    We. Know. BBQ.

    And all its various types, styles, and flavors.

  19. 19

    Need Advice?

    If there's one thing we can all do - it's dish out great advice.. and a good ear, when you need someone to talk to.

  20. 20

    Cowboy Boots Are Always Appropriate

    No matter the occasion, there's always the perfect pair of cowboy boots that's suited just right.

  21. 21

    Friendship Lasts Forever

    The best friend you could ever have is a Southern woman, and we stick together through thick and thin!
