You don’t take me seriously! Follow these helpful tips if you want your man to take you seriously
Some guys will never take you seriously and it has nothing to do with you. There is simply a personality type that is incapable of showing respect for anyone, and you shouldn’t waste time trying to get this snooty guy to take you seriously.
However, if you have a nice guy on your hands, this is how you can make sure you don’t give off the wrong vibe and always maintain his respect.
Don’t get their attention wrong
If you are trying to let a guy know that you are interested, don’t do it in a way that demeans you.
It may work to get your attention if you wear skimpy outfits and talk blatantly about sex, but this kind of behavior won’t earn your respect in the long run.
Keep your mystery
Rather than blatantly launching your sexuality, choose to maintain your mystery and thus retain a large part of your power.
Mystery is a powerful thing, and not giving direct insight into who you are as a sexual being is not only part of being a lady, it’s a key part of keeping her interested and making sure she takes you seriously.
Mental categories of a boy
It’s not really by choice, but for some reason men tend to automatically register women they know and place them in a very different “category” in their brains.
This happens very quickly and your category can rarely be reversed, so make sure your first impression is quality and stick with it. A guy will possibly put you into categories without even knowing it; in your head it will be filed as “possible sexual partner”, “friend” or “potential girlfriend material”.
Do not tolerate disrespect
People who are highly respected and taken very seriously often accomplish this simply by demanding the respect they deserve.
If your guy is acting like he doesn’t take you seriously, put him in his place. Stand up for yourself and be assertive. Acting weak or apologetic and / or trying to change aspects of yourself to meet his ideals is exactly the kind of behavior that will ensure he doesn’t take you seriously.
You don’t need me to take you seriously
It’s important to remember that, in the long run, you will be viewed with more reverence and taken seriously by more people (and not just the person you like), if you let it be an unspoken fact that you don’t need him to take you seriously.
You really don’t need anyone to take you seriously. What matters is how you see yourself. When you start living with this attitude and your sense of self flourishes, that’s what you no longer have to worry about.
Judge him by the same harsh standards
You can take a hint from the insightful male mindset and judge it by the same categories and standards. Just because you’re single and in love with this guy doesn’t mean you have to discount his negative traits and settle.
It is healthier for you and beneficial in the long run to be very picky about all potential partners, so look at it the same way you probably look at women and be harsh in your judgments if your instincts are guiding you to do so.
You can’t control the conclusion you reach
Remember that ultimately there will always be people who want to put you down and disrespect you. If you have acted on your best behavior and demanded respect, then there is nothing else you can do.
We only have some control over how other people see us. The key is to be the same person and not let it get to you.
