If you would like to become a person with good manners, you should read the 12 etiquette rules below:

— Never stare at people, and do not talk or laugh loudly.

— Regardless of your status, age, or profession, you should greet all the people in a room when you enter.

— You should not invite someone to go out with you if you spend the night texting or taking photos.

— When the person in your company meets some people and greets them, you should greet them as well, even though you do not know them.

— Polite men equally respect all women.

— If you are the only one who follows a trend, even though it looks good others will find it ridiculous.

— Be extremely careful of the pedestrians while driving.

— You should never make empty conversations over the phone, and if you are with friends, answer only if it is very important.

— Others will think you are bored or uninterested if you keep checking your phone in their company. Therefore, do not scroll on the Instagram or Facebook, and dedicate yourself to the people who are with you.

— Ladies should not allow men carry their bags, but men should take their coats to the cloakroom.

— As a sign of appreciation, you should thank people when they help you.

— Keep these 9 things to yourself: age, religion, disgrace, honor, affairs, wealth, medical problems, gifts, and family problems.

These rules can really improve our communication and social life, and even though they are quite easy to follow, they can make a huge difference in the world we live in.

^^Yes, let's just not talk about anything, even the weather-after all that could easily lead into a conversation about climate change and therefore politics.
What are we supposed to talk to people about?

I agree especially about the taking phone calls or checking fb or texts while with other company. A quick glance at the phone to make sure its not an emergency is fine-but that is all you should do. If someone texts the entire time they are with me I will not make plans with them again

Totally agree.  I went out to dinner with some out of town relatives recently and I actually had to tell them to put their phones away and talk to me.  LOL.  They had asked me out to dinner.

Quoting redbottoms: I agree especially about the taking phone calls or checking fb or texts while with other company.

^Personally I like it when people feel confident to wear whatever they want, regardless of treads.

I agree with all of them except the sixth one. Everything else is basic manners.

I'm not sure what an "empty conversations" consist of.  As a slight introvert I find I have to work harder to maintain friendships and sometimes maintaining a friendship consist of having empty conversations, whatever that means.
