|What makes a man feel respected? For Mature Men Only!!! by wendyz: 5:33pm On Aug 13, 2010|
One of a man's craving in a relationship no doubt is RESPECT, however i also understand that the word mean different things to different people. So my question What are your expectations of your woman when it comes to RESPECT.?What makes a man feel respected?

If she keeps the home peaceful and don't insist on knowing everything I do and wherever I go. If she allows me to handle all external issues with my parents/siblings and even with my inlaws, if she is transparent with me and tells me the truth in all situations, then she is showing me respect.

- someone who is fully honest in any situation, not afraid to say whats on their mind (however good or bad)
- someone who can make their own minds regardless of what people think.
- someone who stands by their words/demeanor.
IMMEDIATE LOSS OF RESPECT:
- someone cheating.
- someone lying to your face.
- someone dishonest.
- any woman who think its ok to hit a man "because they are women".

You just contradicted yourself. You want a lady who is transparent and tells you the truth in all situations but you do not want her to know everything you do. How is that possible? Are you being transparent yourself by not telling her everything you do but she should tell you everything she does

@Sophy, in my business you don't dare say where you go and what you intend to do. For her peace and safety, she berra not know. I have to know her actions so as to prevent her from crossing enemy lines.

lol guys are so funny. For her safety it is better for her not to know. So why do you want to know her business. I mean since your line of business is very "dangerous" and you need to keep things to yourself, for YOUR peace of mind it is better for her not to tell you ANYTHING.

If she does not engage in a hot argument with you in the public
If she bares her mind to you in all things
If she agrees with your view when you are right
If she disagree with your view when you are wrong.
But these days, Most Women have lost respect for men! due to women lib movement.

Thanks all for your replies. In my interactions with different guys on this issue of RESPECT and my personal experience with my boss. I came to a conclusion that just "maybe" most women (single or married), don't even understand men's expectations from them with regards RESPECT.
A male friend once told me he feels respected in a relationship when his Lady trusts his Decision making ability and if by any chance she feels contrary on his decision, she rather suggests options and not go ahead telling him what to do. Even when his decision does not turn out well, she doesn't rub it in his face. How about that?
I used to have a lot of issues with my male boss for reasons unknown to me, not until i realised he expected me to seek his opinion on almost any decision i needed to make( as a sign of respect). I adjusted to suit his expectation and to my suprise he changed positively and these days he doesn't hassle about all the things we had issues with previously and he gives me the go ahead to make decisions as it deems fit.
Personally i believe on the homefront women too would also get more of the love of their husband they crave for, if they understand HIS expectations of them with regards RESPECT and act as appropriate.

I think that respect is a personal thing with different individuals having different expectations
For example, some husbands like their wives calling them names such as “daddy” while some men rather be called by their names.
Some husbands want no questions asked wives, while some feel unimportant or insignificant, if their wives don’t care less about what time he gets back and where from.
Some husbands see themselves as being respected if they have their own special Arm chair, cup & plate & others don’t mind in the slightest.
Some husbands want the full works when dinner is served; dozens of pyrex dishes on a tray with a napkin on top of the dishes, while some are happy to have their rice, beans dodo and meat all dished on one plate from the kitchen.
Some husbands always want to drive when their wives are in the car and some husbands are happy to let their wives drive them and so on and so forth
I think that one just has to study the person they are living with and take things from there.
oooops only just saw the title; for matured men only. My apologies

Man feel respected when his woman:
1. Trust his decision (even if he's wrong, he should be convince in a subtle way)
2. Discuss anything with him (seeking his opinion, taking permission etc.)
3. Don't compete with him
4. Let him know he's the head of the family (even if things is not that superb)
