How does a girl get a guy to show respect? What would a woman do that would make a man stop in his tracks and say "Hey, she's pretty kewl, I think I should treat her like she deserves to be treated?"

Just a thought... maybe you guys can shed some light on this?

Sorry, you don't "get" a guy to show respect. Saddly, a guy either has the capacity to show it or he doesn't. If he does, you start with the minimum that he shows every one and it increases or decreases proportional to how you interact. I think the trick is to find someone who shows you as much respect as you show him and then act with integrity ( what ever your morals are) and if that person can do the same…mutual respect should grow. I think the trick to being “cool” is to hang around “similarly cool” people. Hope this sheds a little light.

P.S. u have a nice profile

A nice smile, not a tesing smile and a hi, how are you? You will be able to get a read of the guy pretty quick.

Yeah, that would be the premise, show respect and you get it in return... but apparently that doesn't work so well?
I'm saying more, if I was to act like a very introverted and unsexual person, would that mean that men would be more respectful?
I left my marriage (among other reasons) because I tried burying that part of myself for numerous years, and found out I couldn't live with half my emotions.
It all comes down to that, why can't a girl be sexual and still be a lady?! Just my thoughts...

I've never looked at respect as something that is somehow turned on or turned off. A pot of water on a gas stove isn't instantly heated up but gets there by persistence from the flame.

Granted, there are people in this world who haven't a clue what respect for others (or themselves) means...none of us will get respect from them, and that is their loss.

Personally, I work to show respect to everyone I come in contact with...some accept that and reciprocate with mutual respect. The trick to 'getting a guy to show a girl respect' may be more about finding guys who understand that respect isn't a one way street.

good question...good reflections,

What a woman wants is for a man to give with no expectation... to give to a woman like she the only woman in the world. You trust, you know that you will receive everything you have given in return tenfold.... but only if you have trust, respect and a connection. Open up and live your life with honesty,integrity and energy. You will need the energy because once you start, there are no boundaries. Just deciding where you want to go. Thats my take, live it or leave it.
