7 Signs Your Girlfriend Doesn’t Respect You Enough

If she pays more attention to her phone screen than she does to you, you need to walk away and find someone who gives you the attention you deserve.

Everyone knows that no relationship could ever possibly survive without the establishment of mutual respect. Both people involved in the relationship should always be willing to afford each other the respect that is worth of two people in love. When respect is a rare commodity in a relationship, then that is an indication of a partnership that is dysfunctional and unhealthy.

If you find yourself in a relationship wherein your partner doesn’t respect you, then salvage whatever dignity you have left and just end things. Your partner already doesn’t respect you so you have to compensate by respecting yourself enough to say that you are worth more than what you are getting. If your partner is guilty of a lot of the items on this list, then they most likely don’t much respect for you.

1. She doesn’t entertain you well whenever you visit.

You find yourself going to her apartment to pay her a visit and spend time with her, but she’s not entirely receptive of your plans. Instead of entertaining you and showing appreciation for your romantic gesture, she just does some household chores and other such activities that don’t involve you. She has no regard for how her actions make you feel, and she’s just going to keep doing her own thing even though you’re getting hurt by her lack of enthusiasm.

2. She invites her friends out on your ˜dates’

You look forward to your date nights because you see these as opportunities to bond and get closer to each other. These are supposed to be your chances for showing intimacy with one another, but then she goes and invites her friends to rain on your parade. She doesn’t care that you were really looking forward to spending quality time with her, and you’re going to have to live with your hurt feelings and disappointment.

3. She insults you and demeans your character.

She makes you the butt of her jokes just so she can get a good laugh. She insults your dignity just so she can feel better about herself. She demeans you and belittles your hopes and dreams to diminish your sense of self-worth. She has no problem with casting heavy blows unto your ego so as long as she doesn’t get hurt in return. She really doesn’t give a damn about your feelings because she’s selfish and she really doesn’t respect you the way a human should be respected.

4. She pays more attention to her phone screen than she does to you.

If a girl doesn’t respect you enough to put her phone away during dates with you, then she really isn’t a girl worth spending time with. You should only be willing to date girls who respect you enough to devote all their time and attention to you. It is a blatant act of disrespect for a girl to glue her eyes on her phone screen over a date. It would be even worse if she starts answering unimportant phone calls during your dates. You shouldn’t tolerate that kind of disrespect, and you most definitely deserve better from the people you date.

5. She flirtatiously entertains other boys.

It doesn’t matter if it’s just innocent flirtatious banter. She shouldn’t be ding that with other men at all especially when the both of you have talked about exclusively dating. If you manage to catch her still flirting things up with other men, then that means she has no plans of honoring you with her commitment and loyalty at all. Whatever promises she had made to you in the past mean nothing to her because she doesn’t think that you’re a person who is worth keeping promises for. Everyone knows that breaking promises of commitment and loyalty are direct acts of disrespect.

6. She just assumes that you’ll wait on her head to foot.

It’s not even a wonder to her anymore. She has gained a sense of entitlement with you and she sees you as a commodity. She fully expects you to wait on her every single need, and she gets upset whenever you start failing to meet expectations. She doesn’t respect you enough as a person to acknowledge that you are entitled to being selfish every once in a while, and that you have your own troubles to deal with. She should understand that she can’t expect you to do everything on her behalf because you are also human; unless she only sees you as a robot.

7. She doesn’t think that you’re worthy of a reply.

A girl will always grant a man she respects with the gift of a prompt reply. If she didn’t truly respect a man, she wouldn’t give his text messages or phone calls a second thought. She wouldn’t take the time or effort to reply to him in a courteous manner. If your girl never replies to you or returns your phone calls, then she really doesn’t respect you the way that you deserve to be respected.

  1. When I was with my last girlfriend, I often felt I was vying for attention with her cellphone. She used to tell me she was texting her mother. Maybe she was, she had a typical Asian mom who was often ill and very demanding. As for my texts, she hardly ever answered them, at least not promptly, and she often didn’t answer my emails. She only called me when she wanted something. The last straw was when I asked her repeatedly what she was doing for New Years Eve and she never answered me. I texted her, asked her in person. She never answered. I spent NYE with my daughter and her boyfriend. But it helped me put things in perspective, and I ended the relationship. By email of course, since by that point I was only seeing her about once a month. I got sick and tired of being Plan B. Was there somebody else in the picture? I don’t know.

  2. Omg! This is my gf’s to a T….

    It’s like every girl I actually care about has these traits. Makes me feel like whenever anyone cares the other is bound to not care…

    Interesting how spot on this was…

  3. Yes I have when we met in person she always act like this but when in front of all staff members she shows like we have relationship and all people believe it even if I said we don’t have any relationship. They say she love me but in-person she always act distant. Give your suggestion.
