How To Earn Respect In a Relationship

Mutual respect is an important pillar for a successful, joyful relationship. Many relationships fail because there’s a lack of respect between the partners. Respect is conferred to a person only when they deserve it, and typically must be earned in the eyes of the other person. The following are some ways through which you can earn the respect of your partner:

Take Care of Yourself in your relationship

Men are highly visual creatures. They are attracted to women they find visually pleasing and will try to respect her in every possible way in order to win her attention and company. The more you take care of yourself, the more respect he’ll have for you.

Don’t be Afraid to be Independent even in a relationship

This includes self-rule, self-determination, self-reliance and self-sufficiency. It is a must-have element for both parties entering a relationship. You’ll both need some degree of freedom to keep yourr sanity and as a safeguard against some unavoidable changes, such as a break-up or even the death of a partner.


You should not completely give up living your life just because you have a partner; it’s sad that some people entering a relationship behave as if it is the end of their life. Living your own life and finding the areas where you complement your partner is the best thing to do. Self reliance earns you more respect than coming across as needy and clingy.

Display Self Confidence

This means poise and assurance, that is, believing in yourself. Cultivate composure, self-control and dignity in the way you carry yourself. People who are not confident are often insecure and timid. That can make them a target for people who take advantage of others when given the opportunity. On the other hand they tend to respect those people who are sure of themselves and appear to possess self control.


Be honest

Honesty remains to be the best policy in any relationship. If you are always 100% honest, you cannot go wrong and your partner will always trust you. Unfaithfulness in a relationship is one of the hardest things to overcome but by being honest you will win over your partner’s trust even in trivial things.

Keep your word

A sure way to lose your partner’s respect is to fail to keep your word. If you say you will do something, make every effort to do it. If circumstances out of your control prevent you from keeping your word, apologize, even if it wasn’t technically your fault. And do this for friends and family, not just your partner. His respect for you will grow when he sees how well you treat other people besides him.

Give praise when it is deserved

Make every effort to notice helpful things that your partner does for you. Being genuinely appreciative for these things and approving your partner will improve your relationship radically. Don’t put a limit on your praise, everybody wants and needs that “pat on the back” for a job well done. Men will often not get it in the workplace, so it’s critical that they get well deserved praise at home.

Respect your partner in your relationship

As mentioned at the beginning of this article, mutual respect is a cornerstone for a solid relationship foundation. You’ll find it much harder to stay in a long term commitment with a partner you don’t respect. And so will he.

What Do Men Need from the Women They Love?

Men really do have simple needs when it comes to relationships. Despite their resistance to change, men have adapted well to the falling away from “love, honor, and obey” (mostly the obey part of that to be honest) as the commandment of all things relationship. However, that doesn’t imply that they don’t have needs of their own that must be addressed in order for them to remain happy in their marriages. In fact, men have very strong needs – though he’ll likely never explain them to you. There are three overriding needs, though, that every girl needs to understand and meet in order to have a truly happy relationship with the man she loves.

1) Show Him Respect

You don’t have to bow down before him or anything like that. You don’t even need to defer to him, although, at the proper moments in the relationship this can really stroke his ego and make him fall even harder in love with you. The main ways to show respect are in how you interact. Don’t talk down to him. Don’t make him feel inferior. And for goodness sakes, avoid criticism — especially in the form of nagging — at all costs. This makes him feel as though you’re looking down on him and lack respect for him. It leads to “greener grass syndrome” and other negative feelings about you and your relationship.

It’s hard ladies, to get him to do what you want sometimes. That’s usually a sign that he really doesn’t want to do the job – whatever the job may be. So, you have three choices that don’t involve nagging. Make him an offer that makes it worth his while to get the chore done by a specific time or date, do it yourself without holding a grudge (which may be easier said than done), or hire someone else to do it for the sake of the relationship. Even when money is tight, it’s sometimes better to pay someone else to do the jobs neither of you are willing to do, but both want done. The respect you’re both able to maintain for each other by doing this is worth its weight in gold.


2) Admiration

Think long and hard. When was the first time you paid your handsome man a compliment? How about flirting? Do you engage in a little active flirting when you’re out in public, riding in the car, through text messages at the office? When was the last time you let him know that you still think he rocks his Levi’s? Little things like this make a huge difference to the man in your life and in your relationship.

3) Loyalty

Never let him doubt your loyalty. There’s no bigger relationship killer for men than this. Don’t flirt with his best friend – or anyone else for that matter – in an attempt to make him jealous. It will backfire on you every time. Don’t let him overhear you talking negatively about him around the girls. Show loyalty at all times and you can expect to receive the same kind of loyalty from him in return.

Don’t believe me? Try it out and see how quickly things change between you and the wonen you love – for the better.
