lol. I have a habit of sitting in un ladylike positions, I don't see the point since I wear pants all the time. but when I went to the UK all my flat mates were constantly reaching over and closing my legs and telling me to cross them. if it's not for the sake of comfort, girls cross their legs for the sake of being modest. I'll bet it's almost bred into us since for ages women had to wear skirts and dresses.
I do it because I really love to wear skirts. And when I do wear those skirts, there are really only a select few positions to place my legs in in order to prevent anything from showing. I think after a while, it just more or less developed into a habit.
its cumfy? lol I do sometimes get bored of the same position so I just sit normally with both feet on ground, sometimes I intertwine my feet, tuck them under my chair, sometimes I slouch back, sometimes I rest my feet on a stool or seat in front of me, whatever is comfortable!
i won't lie it is very ladylike..but just coincidentally...it mustve started in the first place because it just felt cumfy...
