Respect yourself & so will others
Time after time, so many relationships have ended due to the "He/She doesn't respect me." Well, when you meet someone you're clearly attracted to don't make the most common mistake of them all. Do not jump into the bed with that person the first time you meet them. Unless the both of you really understand & accept that it will be just that; a one night fling.
Some men & women who behave accordingly will assume the next day they will continue to be interested because phone numbers were exchanged. What happens when a few days go by and no response to phone calls or texts? You easily accepted the other party is no longer interested. A week goes by, low and behold the weekend has arrived and you receive that 2 a.m. phone call "What you doing; can I see you?” You giggle and agree. You believe you’re back in the game.
Several days later you are crying & complaining at how sick you are being treated. Why are you going to yell scream and hate the other person if this is what you choose when you do not show that you have respect for yourself? If you want someone to treat you respectfully then don’t behave in ways that make them believe you're not worth worthy of anything more.
Men (don't hate me for saying so) will take any female that will come their way it's human nature. Some women will confuse this with assuming the man is interested in them for a relationship. NO those men will see you as quick and easy pleasure. Unfortunately men can and have been able to lay with any women at any time (even pay for it; then leave). It’s all a physical act. There is a difference between one night stands and having sex for the first time during a relationship.
Women have the tendency to emotionally connect to men. It doesn't work this way. One night stands are labeled that for the exact reason. You cannot connect emotionally to someone who is only interested in your body. No matter what lines they tell you.
When you meet someone and there is attraction; refrain yourself from falling into the category of "Only good for one thing". Ladies: If you want a man to like you, be interested in you; DON'T sleep with him when you first meet. You will not be acknowledged as a self-respecting woman. Give yourself respect in order to receive it. Men: If you want a nice woman who you can respect DON'T call the one at 2 a.m. in the morning.
It’s this simple. If you don't want anyone treating you poorly DON'T behave poorly. If you want to be respected in a relationship begin by respecting yourself. When you respect yourself so will others or perhaps I should say; so SHOULD others.
Remember always; it’s better to be alone with dignity than in a relationship without respect.
