The Real Reason Why Guys Don't Respect You

"She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her." - Proverbs 3:15

The Real Reason Why Guys Don't Respect You
Ashleigh Fucci

Women hold guys to such high standards when it comes to relationships, but for some reason do not want to have standards for themselves. Girls degrade themselves just for the sake of getting attention from males and then wonder why those guys do not respect them. You have to respect yourself before anyone else will respect you.

Stop wearing skimpy clothes so that guys will notice you. That is attracting guys who only care about your body and your outer appearance. Wearing revealing clothes is basically telling men that you do not care about your body enough to cover it up, so why should they? And trust me, they won’t.

Stop sending nude pictures and hoping that will win over a guy’s heart. I want you to understand that as soon as that picture is in their possession, they are showing it to all of their friends. This is not only embarrassing, but also hurtful, and girls are doing it to themselves.

Stop being the girl that is always available. If you always drop your plans in order to make time for a guy, he is going to know that you will do anything to be with him and he will use that as an advantage. He will expect you to be at his beck and call and when you aren’t, he will find someone else who is.

Stop settling for the sake of having someone. It is perfectly fine to be single for any length of time. Respect yourself enough to acknowledge the fact that you need time to yourself. Do not settle for someone who does not respect you just because you want a relationship.

Stop giving into the hook up culture. If you are willing to give everything to a guy within the first week of knowing him, why would he want to stick around and try to date you or even just get to know you? He is probably going to assume that you do that with everyone and that is just not respectable. He will never take you seriously.

We as women have to stop complaining about not being respected by men when we are bringing it upon ourselves. You must know your worth before anyone will ever treat you with respect. People will only treat you how you let them treat you. Stand up to guys and don’t let them treat you any old way because of how attractive they are or because of how much potential you see with them. Why would you even want to give someone the time of day that doesn’t acknowledge how incredible you are?

Proverbs 3:15 says, "She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her." Did you hear that? God tells us that you are more precious than the finest of jewels, so stop letting guys treat you like cheap cubic zirconia.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.
