Are you demure? Can you teach me?

#1: Demure


Definition:
not attracting or demanding a lot of attention; not showy or flashy; quiet and polite



Words It Might Replace:
modest; unassuming; shy; coy

Example:
"As William and Kate sang prayers from the specially designed hymn sheets, the two sisters looked on unassumingly. But despite their demure appearance, rumours even began to surface today that one of the women was a secret 'ninja nun' intended to protect the Royal couple by pouncing on any intruders." – Daily Mail, May 1, 2011
