An increasingly rare sub-species of human being. Sadly, most were killed off over the past few decades due to the introduction of a number of competitive species (bitches, hoes, etc.). Numbers have also been greatly reduced by race contamination, sexually transmitted diseases, and suicide due to mistreatment.
Proper ladies are expected to die out by 2065. What a sad ending to a noble story.

I want a proper lady in my life, but I only have bitches and lezzies.

Concerned at the extreme double standard at play with the definitions for gentleman and lady, I decided to take a definition from the former and swap it for the latter:

Something very rare today. A woman who is respectful and considerate of those around her. Acts politely. Treats men and women with respect. Says thank you when helped, wears nice clothes, and is elegant. What more women should be. Because regardless of what feminists may tell you, treating people with respect and being polite doesn't give you "internalized misogyny" or make you a "traitor" or whatever. It makes you a good person and will really benefit you in life.
When we went out, she listened to my stories, gave me a box of chocolates, and thanked me for a wonderful night with a kiss on the cheek. She was such a classy lady.

Sally: Hello Miss, it's nice to meet you.

Woman: Same to you, dear.
Other person: Sally is a polite young lady
