The themes of “love” and “relationship” can be really insanely complicated from time to time. You want him to love you and respect you, which sometimes seems like a real challenge. Have you ever wondered what is necessary for a man to respect a woman?
The truth is that there is no quick way to earn the respect of a man. You can not make him respect you more than he makes you respect him. If you want to know how to make a man respect you, be the woman who is worth the respect.
With this knowledge in mind, you now read how you from the doormat to the woman of his dreams.
1. Challenge him.
Men love women, with whom they can lead an intelligent debate. Make your opinion clear, even if it should differ from his – or better: then. It’s an art of sharing opinion with someone without putting it down. Learn this art and use it for conversations with men. He will respect your stability to the highest degree.
2. laugh about yourself.
A woman who stumbles down stairs on the first date and then makes a joke about it immediately wins his respect. It gives the feeling that you are uncomplicated and do not expect everyone to be perfect.
Note, however, that there is a small degree between laughing at yourself and turning yourself down. Learn where that grade is and stay away from it by occasionally laughing at a faux pas on your part but not offending yourself.
3. Respect yourself.
Your non-verbal communication plays a big role here. It also has a lot to do with laughing at yourself, but it goes a bit further. If you do not respect yourself, he will notice it no matter what you say to hide it. And if you do not respect yourself, you can not expect it from him. Non-verbal cues that show your self-confidence, such as smiling, sitting straight, laughing, and the like, show him that you are content with yourself and do not hide yourself with it.
4. Customs respect.
You get back in love what you give yourself, so he will not give you back respect if you do not show him. Respect his freedom, his privacy, his time, his honesty and thank him for it. “Thank you for your call back, thanks for the invitation” and so on. A simple “thank you” brings you closer to his respect. It shows him that you value his efforts, and your happiness is all that men really want for the woman they love.
5. Be sincere.
Sincerity is hard to find today. Always be honest with him, even if he does not like what you have to say. There is something that needs to be said about women who always stay with the truth. If he knows that you are always honest with him, not only will he return it, but he will perceive and respect you as a good person.
6. Share your ambitions.
Show that you have goals in life that you will not give up. Do not hide your expectations of life, just because you may think he does not like it or that he does not agree. Discrimination does not correspond to the behavior that is respected by anyone.
Men respect goals and ambitions because they are so polar. Just be sure that your goals are really your own. Do not just take his goals and disguise them as your own. You will lose your respect rather than win it.
7. You teach him how to treat you.
A woman who knows her value and does not settle for anything with it, not only receives his respect, but the respect of all people in their environment. If he says something that does not do justice to your value, speak directly to him. If he is unpunctual or does not keep his promises, ask him for it. If he knows that you are not satisfied with certain things, then he will, and if he really loves you, he will correct his behavior.
Remember that there is a fine border here as well. Adding to him for a one-hour delay is something more than getting mad about a little delay. Practice teaching him how to treat you without going nuts. Often, actions work better than words.
If he comes more than twenty minutes late, without an explanation or a phone call, then when he asks why you were not there, you just say, “I waited 20 minutes and heard or seen nothing from you, so I am went.”. It makes clear that you have limits and self-respect.
8. Take care of yourself.
It is important that you do not give up anything important to you when you come together. Make sure you keep your own long-term quirks. Are you going to have a drink with your girls on Fridays and to go to the spa once a month? Do not give these things to him automatically. Things without him are important to gain his respect and not lose himself in a relationship.
9. Do not hide your intelligence.
Some women think she has to face more stupid than she is to please a man (and I myself thought so). That is simply wrong. People respect intelligence. It does not make sense to hide them from a man or anyone else. It’s better to just be yourself.
In addition, if you hide your strengths now, how long will you want to keep playing the charade if you really win it for yourself? A few months? Your whole life? Just say “no” to be stupid for anyone.
10. Wait with the sex.
Men and women see sex differently. We connect emotions with it, he often does not. If he sleeps with you on the first date, it has nothing to do with an emotional attachment, at least not as it might be for you. If you let him wait for sex, there is a certain respect in the room anyway. It makes him realize that you see yourself as a woman of value and do not just give yourself for everyone. This is an essential first step in gaining your respect. The man who does not call you after saying “no” is by no means worth your energy.
As with all these tips, essentially your actions determine if and how well they work. If you say out loud that you do not want to sleep with him because he will not respect you afterwards, you’ll scare him away. It’s far too direct and sounds like you do not respect his intentions either.
Maybe he really likes you a lot and that would make him shy away. Just avoid situations in which he might expect you to move out for him like invitations to “watch a movie”. Do not answer nocturnal calls or messages. If you want to win him over as a long term partner, that would not be the way to go.
The bottom line – how to make him respect you
As with any relationship in life, whether with your best friend, friend or mother, you can not make anyone respect you; it is your job to earn your respect.
By being a woman who is honest with him, keeps her promises, and stands by her principles, you will become a precious person for him near whom he will be close. We all like to surround ourselves with great, honest people. It’s all about who you really are inside of you. You should live it like that, even if he is not there.
