How can I get respect from my husband

How to get a man to respect you

The topics of “love” and “relationship” can get 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 it takes for a man to respect a woman?

The truth is, there is no quick way to earn a man's respect. You can't make him respect you any more than he can make you respect him. If you want to know how to get a man to respect you, be the woman who is worthy of respect.

With this knowledge in mind, read how you can go from a doormat to the woman of his dreams.

1. Challenge him.

Men love women with whom they can have an intelligent debate. Make your opinion clear, even if it should differ from his - or better: especially then. It's an art to split your mind with someone without putting them down. Learn this art and use it for conversations with men. He will respect your steadfastness to the highest degree.

2. Laugh at yourself.

A woman who stumbles down a flight of stairs on a first date and then jokes about it immediately wins his respect. It makes you feel like you're straightforward and don't expect everyone to be perfect.

Note, however, that there is a fine line between laughing at yourself and putting yourself down. Learn where this grade is and stay away from it by laughing every now and then at a faux pas on your part, but not insulting yourself.

3. Respect yourself.

Your non-verbal communication plays a big role here. This has a lot to do with laughing at yourself, too, but goes a little further. If you don't respect yourself, no matter what you say to hide it, he will know. And if you don't respect yourself, you can't expect him to either. Nonverbal cues that show your self-confidence, such as smiling, sitting up straight, laughing and the like, show him that you are satisfied with yourself and that you are not hiding with it.

4. Show your respect.

You get back in love what you give yourself, so he won't give you any respect back if you don't show him any. Respect his freedom, his privacy, his time, his honesty and thank him for it. "Thank you for calling back, thank you for inviting me" and so on. A simple "thank you" brings you a lot closer to his respect. It shows him that you value his efforts and your happiness is all men really want for the woman they love.

5. Be sincere.

In this day and age, sincerity is hard to find. Always be honest with him, even if he doesn't like what you have to say. There is something that needs to be said about women who always stick to the truth. If he knows that you are always honest with him, he will not only give it back, 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. Don't hide your expectations of life just because you may think he doesn't like it or that he doesn't agree. Pretending to be yourself is not behavior that is respected by anyone.

Men respect goals and ambitions because they are so polarized themselves. Just be sure that your goals are really your own. Don't just take his goals and disguise them as your own. This will make you lose his respect rather than win him.

7. You teach him how to treat you.

A woman who knows her worth and is not satisfied with anything below it receives not only his respect, but the respect of everyone around her. If he says something that doesn't live up to your worth, speak to him directly about it. If he's late or doesn't keep his promises, confront him. If he knows that you are not satisfied with certain things, it gets to him, and if he really loves you, he corrects his behavior.

Note that there is a fine line here too. Beating him about an hour late is different from being maddened by a slight delay. Practice teaching him how to treat you without going nuts. Actions often work better than words.

If he's more than twenty minutes late with no explanation or a call, go. Then when he asks why you weren't there, just say, "I waited 20 minutes and didn't hear or see anything from you, so I am went.". It shows that you have limits and self-respect.

8. Take care of yourself.

It's important that you don't give up things that are important to you when you get together. Make sure you keep your own long-term quirks. Do you go for a drink with your girls on Fridays and go to the wellness center once a month? Don't automatically give up these things for him. Doing things without him is important in order to gain his respect and not lose yourself in a relationship.

9. Don't hide your intelligence.

Some women think they have to pretend to be more stupid than they are to please a man (and I thought so too). That is simply wrong. People respect intelligence. There is absolutely no point in hiding them from a man or anyone else. It is better to just be yourself.

In addition, if you hide your strengths now, how long do you want to continue playing the character, if you really win him over? A few months? Your whole life? Just say "no" to playing stupid for someone.

10. Wait to have sex.

Men and women see sex differently. We associate emotions with it, but he often doesn't. If he sleeps with you on the first date, it has nothing to do with an emotional bond, at least not in the way it might for you. If you keep him waiting for sex, there is a certain respect in the room anyway. It lets him see that you see yourself as a woman of value and that you don't just give yourself away to everyone. This is an essential first step in gaining respect. The man who doesn't call you after you say “no” is by no means worth your energy.

As with all of these tips, your actions largely determine whether and how well they work. If you say out loud that you don't want to sleep with him because he won't respect you afterward, you are driving him away. It's way too direct and sounds like you don't respect his intentions either.

Maybe he really likes you and that would make him cringe. Just avoid situations where he might expect you to undress for him, like invitations to go home to "watch a movie". Also, don't answer nightly calls or messages. If you want to win him over as a long-term partner, this would not be the way to go.

The bottom line - how to get him to respect you

As with any relationship in life, whether with your best friend, boyfriend, or mother, you can't get anyone to respect you; rather, it is your job to earn their respect.

By being a woman who is honest with him, keeps her promises and stands by her principles, you will become a valuable person to whom he will be happy to be. We all like to surround ourselves with great, sincere people. It's especially about who you really are inside yourself. You should act it out the same way, even if he's not there.
