Respect is one of of the few things that play a vital role in making or breaking a relationship. According to some, it is more important than love itself as it is the strongest binding force that keeps two together.
Respect is the feeling of appreciation, recognition for a person’s achievements, opinions, limitations and accepting him as a whole being, along with feelings and flaws. It is the basic right of every being regardless of race, gender, age, etc. As it is the foundation of a strong and healthy relationship, the absence of it definitely leads to the end of it. People can lose respect for one another due to multiple reasons like dishonesty, cheating, reacting negatively, etc or they wouldn’t be so respected in the first place. So here are a few tips that can help you get your partner to respect you.
Know your worth and set limitations and respect them yourself first, only then will the others respect them. It all starts with you. People often look for how a person treats or talks about himself and then they treat him accordingly. So when your girl sees that you respect yourself, she will too.
GIVE RESPECT, TAKE RESPECT
It’s as simple as this! When you give others respect, they, in turn, respect you too. A respecting person is considered a good one and is always liked by others. And when you’re in the “good” category you automatically get respect. The same goes for relationships. Relationships are fragile, and you cannot expect her to respect you when you don’t respect her opinions, feelings, etc. Respect them so that she respects you too.
If there’s one thing that women can’t take, it has to be lies! To be honest, no one likes a liar. Women hate being lied to as they feel that they’re being made a fool of or considered weak-minded. If she catches you lying even once, then it’ll be very difficult to convince her and get her to still have faith in you. If this happens, it’s the end of the respect you are getting from her.
Not really physically, but mentally. Physical strength is also important but when dealing with respect, emotional strength and stability are what matters. Be the responsible one and take decisions with maturity. Act strong in challenging or tough situations and take responsibility. This will make her feel protected and safe with you and so, will respect you even more for that.
BE CONFIDENT AND FUN
Girls love confident guys. It’s easy to be bossy at home but how you interact with people outside is what really matters. A girl is more respecting to a guy who doesn’t shy away from other guys or in social situations. So don’t shy away and don’t be overconfident either. Just act naturally and so she’ll also feel confident with you being the leader as she knows that you’re confident in what you do and will have respect for you.
Also, be super chilled and laid back when with her. This will make her feel comfortable around you and also have fun with her. Tell her jokes, play games together, make her laugh. This will draw her more into you and keep her in love.
But yes, respecting her and yourself is the key to a relationship full of love, trust and respect. When you’ll do this, you will see that both of you value each other’s opinions, experiences, etc. And will have a friendly relationship altogether.
