- What do you wish women knew about Masculine respect?
The only thing I wish women knew or understood is only real men (not the proverbial F boys) can describe what masculine respect is. It is very important for a man to feel like a man…we get this partly from the women around us and how they make us feel.
- What does it mean to you? (What is respect?)
Respect is valuing my role, concerns, accepting who I am, and my judgement as the man of the household. Respect is a mutual and easy aspect in healthy relationships when everyone understands their role.
- How can we show it? How can we honor you in a way that makes you feel respected?
The best way to honor or show respect is to value his judgement and acknowledge the value of his opinion to decisions in the household. This does not mean you have to acquiesce, far from it, it just means take his judgement into consideration…we love that…we feel valued.
