Modern etiquette rules

The behavior, attitudes, and values of society are constantly changing, so the rules of etiquette change with them. To feel comfortable and avoid creating an awkward situation, you need to follow modern norms.

The Cut has published the top 10 rules that will help you behave properly in different situations. These rules are more about the emotional well-being of a person.

You shouldn't follow your friends' creative ideas

If you don't like what your friends or acquaintances are creating, you don't have to watch that video or try their product. You don't have to go against yourself, just praise your friends and support them if they need it.

Don't return a compliment with a compliment

When someone compliments you, you often feel uncomfortable and want to give a compliment in return. But it doesn't always look sincere, so it's better to just say thank you.

Don't tell people they look like someone else

Not all people can understand being compared to a celebrity, for example. Everyone has their own idea of beauty, so this seemingly innocent compliment can offend someone.

Cancel an evening meeting no later than 14:00 

If you have scheduled a meeting in the evening, but you have plans, it is important to warn the person. Your partner may be able to find another company for the evening during this time. Therefore, value everyone's time.

Don't use friends in disputes with your partner

There may be quarrels between partners, but you shouldn't involve your friends and tell them everything or complain about your loved one. Because later you may make up, but your friends will still have unpleasant feelings.

Don't ask about a protective mask

The coronavirus pandemic has made significant changes in our lives, but some people have already gotten used to wearing masks, so you don't need to put someone in an awkward position and ask why they are not wearing a mask. There may be many reasons that you don't always want to talk about.

Use "you" instead of "I"

If you often use the term "I know" in a conversation with a person, it's better to say "You're right."

Business correspondence can be conducted outside of working hours

Business etiquette states that business matters should only be dealt with during working hours, but if you write to a person on a social network or messenger, it will not be a mistake. Because it's up to the person to decide when it's best to respond to such a message.

When having dinner with friends, divide the bill equally

If you are going to have dinner in a restaurant with a large group of friends, you don't need to calculate how much you ate and drank after the bill is brought. To avoid an unpleasant situation, it is better to split the bill equally.

Turn on the camera during video calls

When you are invited to a video conference meeting where all participants have turned on their cameras, you should do the same. If this is not possible, you should notify the organizer in advance.
