Hello friends, I’m back with a new lesson, your trainer, Niharika and in today’s lesson we are gonna look at some words that will help you to describe women only.
Now men love talking about women. Well, women also love talking about other women. It’s more like gossiping, right? Now, what are the words that can be used to describe a woman? Now these words here, we have around 9 words which can only be used for women and not for men. So let’s have a look.
The first one that we have for you is bossy. Now when you say or when you call a woman, bossy, it means that she is very dominating or a little harsh and strict. So you know especially, we come across women who have a personality, a very dominating personality and rather than saying, that uh…you are so dominating or when you are just talking about her in a conversation with someone else, rather than saying that she is so dominating, you can also use this word, which is, bossy. Now, remember, this is a slang term, bossy used for a woman who is dominating, a little harsh or may be a little strict. So, do you have a woman who is dominating or harsh or strict, then you can call her bossy.
Let’s move on to another term which is bitchy. Yes, women at times can be bitchy. Now you can either use the word that she is such a bitch or you can just call her bitchy. Now, remember this is also a slang term and it can be used only in informal English or informal environments. You can’t just walk up to your lady boss and say, what a bitch you are! No, you can’t do that. So bitchy is a slang term used for a woman who is very mean and a little malicious. Yeah, you can call such women bitchy. So someone or a woman who is mean or malicious.
Let’s move on to another term which is, bubbly. Now, who is bubbly? A woman who is very animated, always very chirpy and excited about something. Yes there are so many women who do have this kind of a personality, right? They are always so excited about something and just so animated about everything, then such women can be described as bubbly. Okay, so like for example, my friend Rayna is such a bubbly personality. So which means she’s always very excited. So chirpy and so animated. Now you cannot call a man, bubbly. My friend John is so bubbly, well that is incorrect. It can be only used for women.
Let’s move on to another one, which is, bimbo. I have some friends who are such bimbos. Now bimbos, well it can be used to describe women who are beautiful, absolutely gorgeous, super hot but without any intelligence. Yes, they are beauty without brains. So a woman who is really pretty and you know, and absolutely a head turner which means that she is so attractive but she is unintelligent. So beauty without brains. Yeah, we do come across women who are very attractive but not smart. So you can call such women or describe such women as bimbos. Okay, there is another term that you can use, pretty similar to this one for the same kind of women that is blonde. Okay, she is such a blonde. So a blonde, she’s attractive, she’s beautiful, she’s super hot but she’s not intelligent.
Let’s move on to another term which is catty. My boss is so catty. Yes, when do you use this word? Well, people think that it is used just as we use the word, bitchy. Now, remember, bitchy is used for a mean woman. Okay, who is extremely malicious but catty is used for women who are smart and witty and can really insult you at times but with their smartness. So they are not very mean, they can get a little insulting at times but they are not very mean. They are clever. So the clever witty women can be described as catty. Now again this is also a slang term that you can use.
The next one, curvy. Now when do you use this term to describe a woman? Well, it’s a very polite word that is used for fat and chubby women. Now if you spot a fat woman on the street, you’re not gonna say, uh… look at that fat woman! That’s mean, that’s so rude. Well, a good and a nice polite term that you can use is curvy. Now men cannot be curvy. Men can be round or just shapeless. You cannot call men as curvy but yes you can describe a woman who is a little fat and chubby or voluptuous as curvy.
Alright, let’s move on to another word which is frigid. Now when do we call or describe a woman as frigid? I have a friend of mine whom I met last week and he said you know something Niharika, my wife is very frigid. So what do you think this really means? Well, a woman who is not very sexually aroused, who is very unaffectionate. There’s no passion in her, then she can be described as frigid. Okay, now may be, yes she is loving but she doesn’t have that passion towards her partner. She’s not sexually aroused, then she can be described as frigid. So if your wife or your girlfriend is not usually sexually aroused or is very unaffectionate or has no passion in her, then you can describe her as frigid.
Let’s move on to another term which is frumpy. When do you use this word to describe a woman? Well, when you spot a woman who is dressed in a very shabby manner. Yes at times you know in the mornings, when I wake up, well I’m in my night suit or may be in these baggy pants and a baggy t-shirt, so I’m not really dressed well. So if I step out of my house in these shabby clothes, then people are gonna call me, frumpy. Oh Niharika, you look so frumpy so which means that I am dressed in a very shabby way. So if you see a woman who is dressed in a very shabby or untidy manner. So if you spot a woman who is dressed in an untidy manner, then you can describe her as frumpy.
Let’s move on to the last word that we have for today’s lesson, is high maintenance. Now when do you use this for a woman? Well, a woman who only loves credit cards of her partners. Now, well she is only interested in shopping, in her manicures and pedicures. She wants to travel in the best of luxurious cars. So that woman can be described as high maintenance. For example, John’s girlfriend is such high maintenance which means that she’s not really in love with John but she’s in love with his money. So she’s all about shopping and going to the salons and of course roaming in the best of cars. So she is high maintenance.
