This happens frequently in relationships. Many times, you’ll meet a guy that seems to be one of the sweetest and most romantic men you’ve ever come into contact with in your life. He says incredibly sweet things to you, writes poems for you, and does everything he can think of to let you know just how much he cares about you.
You consider yourself to be the luckiest woman in the world until you actually start spending a lot of time with this guy.
When the Respects Starts to Slip Away
It typically becomes more noticeable once you’ve moved in together. Soon, he starts getting snippy with you. Every time you ask him to repeat something that you didn’t hear or understand, he repeats it loudly and in a way that makes you feel like a moron.
If you disagree with him about anything, he debates his side of things with you in a hateful and arrogant manner. The worst thing about all of this is that he doesn’t see any problem with the way he’s suddenly treating you.
Even worse, all of the romance that you enjoyed with him previously seems to have all but vanished to the point that you wonder if you imagined it all.
This man that used to tell you how much he loved having sex is suddenly not very interested in it at all. Once a week or so is about all he requires to be happy. Why would he lie to you about something this important?
Do You Want a Relationship Without Respect?
Something you’re going to have to decide, first of all, is if you really want to stay in this relationship where you’re being treated as if you’re sub human.
If you do still feel that there’s something worth salvaging here, choose a time when you’re actually getting along together and broach the subject of the way he treats you. However, be ready for him to get defensive and refuse to talk to you about it at all. It may even be necessary to see a counselor of some kind so that he can see what he’s doing to you.
If he doesn’t want to talk to you about all these issues, start digging around into his past a little to see if maybe his upbringing can be responsible for the way he’s acting. Many, many times, you’ll find that there are some things in his background that have caused him to be this way. Frequently, all it takes is being around his immediate family, particularly his parents for you to understand his behavior.
If that’s the case, then you need to make the decision as to whether or not you want to keep trying for the respect or walk away.
In the end, you’re the only one who can decide if this man and this relationship are worth the effort it’s going to take make things better. He has to be ready to understand what he’s doing, and why, before the first steps can be taken to improve things. Otherwise, you need to either walk away or accept that this will be your life from now on.
