34 Signs of a High-Value Woman

The High Value Woman blog cover

We all know what a high-maintenance woman is. She always needs attention, she’s high-strung, and she takes from others without giving anything in return. Ultimately, she’s not the kind of person you want to be around. But what about a high-value woman?

Well, high-value women are the opposite of high-maintenance in a lot of ways. While they have high standards, they openly show gratitude, and they live their life with integrity. They know their worth, and they have that ‘je ne sais quoi’ that draws people in. High-value women are the type of women you’d be proud to introduce to your friends.

Tom Jones says it well in his song “She’s a Lady” (you’re excused if you are too young to know who Tom Jones is). Let’s take a look at some of his lyrics.

Well, she’s all you’d ever want

She’s the kind I like to flaunt and take to dinner

But she always knows her place

She’s got style, she’s got grace, she’s a winner

She’s a lady

Oh, whoa, whoa, she’s a lady

Talkin’ about that little lady

And the lady is mine

Well, she’s never in the way

Always something nice to say, and what a blessin’

I can leave her on her own

Knowin’ she’s okay alone and there’s no messin’

She’s a lady

Oh, whoa, whoa, she’s a lady

Talkin’ about that little lady

And the lady is mine

Well, she never asks very much

And I don’t refuse her

Always treat her with respect

I never would abuse her

What she’s got is hard to find

And I don’t want to lose her

Help me build a mountain

From a little pile of clay, hey hey hey

And with that, let’s move on to how you can spot a high-value woman.
