Respect for a man, 100 ways for a woman to show it in practice
A man’s greatest need is to feel respected, and a woman’s greatest need is to be loved. But how can a woman show her respect for a man so that he feels that he is really respected? Consider 100 ways how a woman can do it in practice.
Some may argue that a man must earn respect for himself, but not love. But how a woman wants to be loved, no matter if she’s moody or having a bad day. Likewise, men want to be respected when they do not live up to women’s expectations in some way.
So showing respect is not a matter of choice. This is the main tool with which a woman or girl can influence male self-esteem. And then the man is ready to do a lot to win women’s admiration and self-respect.
What does it mean to respect a husband, a man
Respect means to reckon with a man and his opinion, to recognize his authority. A woman who respects her man will never allow herself to gossip with others about his mistakes.
Love and respect for men, women show that they treat them with kindness. They take into account their self-esteem not only in public, but also at home, alone. They also try to fulfill all reasonable requests of their husbands.
Respect means learning to accept a man as he is. Do not squeeze it into the framework of an ideal invented by a woman.
Now let’s look at what it is. (By the way, read about how a man can actually show respect and love for a woman ).
How to show respect for a man in practice
Tell a man that you love and respect him for specific deeds.
Give him time for his hobbies, not insisting only on his rights.
Write love notes or send love sms to a man .
Show that you trust him.
When you do something together, do not criticize the man, pointing out his problems and shortcomings.
Try to understand the reasons for the discontent of your man.
When a man talks to you, listen and look at him, don’t pretend to be busy. Don’t interrupt him when he speaks.
Pray for him and with him. (If you are believers).
Focus on what the man is doing right.
Show interest in his interests, goals and hobbies.
Give him half an hour to relax after work before talking to him about household chores.
Sometimes dress in a way that makes him feel like you did it for him, not for yourself.
Protect him if others speak disrespectfully of him, especially relatives. A man wants respect from them. ( What men want from women in a relationship , you can find out by reading the article).
Help the man carry out his plans.
Forgive when in “hearts” offends you and regrets it.
Periodically ask, “What can I do for you today? How can I help you?
When you go to the store, ask if you can buy something for him?
Show the man you love that you need him.
Do not fill every free minute of a man with some deeds and requests. This shows the respect of the girl for the man.
If he wants to talk, listen, ask questions that can show your understanding of the topic of conversation.
Try to see the advantages of a man, and not just the shortcomings, even if he only knows how to fish. (I recommend finding out 100 facts about guys and men that women and girls need to know).

Talk to a man about the qualities that you fundamentally appreciate in him.
Be his assistant in any business. Remember, a man needs a helper.
Keep in mind that sometimes he just wants to silently be with you. He dreams of listening to you silently.
Help him achieve his goals.
To respect a man means to praise his work, work, ingenuity, the ability to do something with his own hands.
Try to eradicate the habits that annoy him. (To identify these flaws, read What Annoys Men About Women .)
Be grateful for his housework, thank and encourage him for it.

Love or respect, which is more important for a man, what do you think? After being married for over 25 years, I asked my husband a simple question: “Which does he want more – love or respect?”
Although both of these qualities are important, his answer surprised me: “Respect.”
I couldn’t believe that anyone would prefer respect over love. But then I realized that respect for a man is the basis of a successful relationship. It is more important for men to be respected, but not loved, than loved, but not respected. And just like women expect strong love, men expect unconditional respect.
This is how we women can positively influence our men. A man deserves respect, it is a powerful motivator for him. And this is what family values are built on.
