I always say “If you want a woman to stay, give her hope. If you want a woman to leave, give her doubt.” You first find happiness from within, and when you commit yourself to a relationship, it should be with someone who brings you even more happiness. In the event that this person no longer provides you with happiness, you can remove this person from your life and still be happy by yourself. I have what I like to call “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Relationships” (According to AskCheyB). Respect, Love, Honesty, Trust, Loyalty, Support, and Communication. If your relationship is missing any one of these things, it will inevitably come to a quick end.
When your significant other stops showing you respect, isn’t showing you love, isn’t being honest with you, if you’ve lost trust in him, if he isn’t being loyal to you, if he doesn’t support you, and doesn’t communicate effectively with you, then it’s time to re-evaluate your relationship with this person (no questions asked). If you let a man get away with disrespecting you once, he’ll disrespect you a thousand times over. Instead, show him that you have a zero tolerance for disrespect by denying him the honor of being in your life. By doing this, he learns his lesson not for you, but for the next woman he wants to be in a relationship with. Men who disrespect you once don’t get second chances.
If a man is comfortable disrespecting you and still remains in your life, then that is a clear cut sign that he is “comfortable” in that position and is in no rush to leave. You are now considered a “convenience”. Meaning he’s only around because it’s beneficial to him (i.e. A place to live, your money/resources, free food, sex, etc). He has no intentions on leaving, nor does he have a reason to. He has everything he needs right at home, meanwhile, he can go out and get what he “wants” from other woman (worry free) because he knows there will be no consequences for his actions.
The longer you stay with him, the more comfortable he’ll be disrespecting you in your face. You can break this vicious cycle by unexpectedly cutting off all of the resources that you’ve made available to him and immediately ridding yourself of him. Eliminate men who disrespect you from your life indefinitely!
