If you're lucky enough to be graced with the presence of a Southern lady, here's a few things you need to know about dating these so-called belles (ahem, never call me that): 1. I grew up next to a farm where I happily retrieved eggs from the hens for my neighbor every day after school. There's this misconception about Southern women that we're all sugar and spice. I'm calmed and soothed by the simplest of things, and being able to just relax outside with someone on a hot summer day?

My dad taught me to drive a tractor when I was 1-year-old, and I learned how to ride a bike on a gravel road (I have the scars on my knee to prove it). The origin of the term dates back to the plantation era in the deep South. While my friends from NYC will say I'm one of the sweetest people they've met (that's true), all Southern women I know and love are incredibly sassy.

I spent more time outside than inside, and though I might rock stilettos and Calvin Klein dresses, I don't mind a little dirt. Southern Belles were upper class and often had slaves to tend to them. We aren't afraid to speak our mind and say what we want.

I make a decent living and I'm rather independent (almost to a fault), so I don't expect to be taken care of, especially by someone I just met. I vote democratically and believe in same-sex marriage, so anything that paints me in a prejudiced light ...

Even so, I grew up around gentlemen who didn't think twice about extending their hand to help me get out of a car or stepping aside to let me walk first. So if we're out and you don't do that, Lord knows I'm going to notice.

Like at the office, or at home, or when I have to walk downstairs in my building to do laundry. Of all the things I miss about big open green spaces, it's being outside in the warm Southern summer sun.

And if you try to patronize me, talk down to me or treat me like a doll to hang in your china cabinet, you will quickly experience the temper that comes from a Southern family. I was raised to have manners, be polite and watch my language, so I'd like you to follow suit.

We’re putting manners back into online dating…civilized courting in a digital age!

For .99 a month (less than the price of a biscuit a day), you can be settling down with your Southern sweetheart.

Though I've lived in New York for five years and consider myself some sort of a hybrid of the East Coast, the truth is: I'm a born and raised Southerner. Get used to me never wearing shoes, unless I have to. If you want to impress me (duh), plan something that's part of nature and I might just be smoother than my grandmother's homemade grits.

I may not have an accent (sorry, dudes, I know it's apparently sexy) and I take my tea unsweetened, but when it comes to chivalry and the importance of gestures in dating, my North Carolina roots always shine through. When I visit my hometown, there's nothing I look forward to more than a glass of wine on our big, wrap-around porch at sunset, while I watch the fireflies come out and hear the tree frogs start to sing.
