Ladies, a man truly values and respects what he WORKS for. If it took no effort to GET it, he will use no effort to KEEP it. It’s not just men either. We tend to value expensive more than cheap. It’s why the Bentley is more respected and revered than the Ford. COmmand respect and it will never have to be DEmanded. You command respect by just not inviting anything or anyone into your life that doesn’t reverence your worth. You’ll know how he REALLY feels about you when you REALISTICALLY raise the bar of access to you and he chooses to walk rather step up to the invitation. It doesn’t make him a bad man. It just makes him not YOUR man.
