How important is respect in your relationship?

If you ask single individuals what is the the hardest part about dating, in some cases they may say the lack of respect people seem to have for one another would be on the top of their list.

When it comes to dating there are some people who have been in some really bad situations. As a result of their bad situations they have given up on dating to the point where they would rather not date at all.

On the other hand there are some people who as a result of a previous bad situation now realize that having self respect is very important when it comes to dating. They realize that self respect is important because how can you expect someone to respect you when you don't have respect for yourself. At some point you have to also realize, people will treat you how you allow them to treat you. Once this is understood the dating process doesn't get easier, as a matter of fact it gets harder.

Dating gets harder because it's a lot harder to find individuals who respect themselves. Meaning, there are more people who want to treat you how they want to treat you and not how you feel you should be treated. When this is the case most individuals just move on.

As individuals move on they realize, you can't teach people how to treat you. They also realize someone who has self respect will in turn know what it means to have respect for others.

When it comes to dating there are some people who are willing to accept being treating any kind of way. The reason they do this, because they do not want to be alone.

For those who are willing to stand their ground and demand respect hang in there. At some point standing their ground will pay off because sooner or later they will find someone who will treat them with the same respect that they also want for themselves.
