A woman who knows her own worth is a woman who has very clear standards for a relationship.
You’ve probably been through a lot while trying to become the woman you are today. All that heartbreak that you’ve been through definitely hurt like hell, but it’s also made you stronger and better.
That’s exactly why there are certain expectations a woman who knows her worth has when it comes to relationships.
You would never make the same mistake twice. You would never let yourself forget that you’re worthy of love and devotion.
So what expectations are we talking about here?
Of course, there might be expectations unique to each individual woman, but the expectations we’re about to get into are rather universal.
So before a man starts going after you, make sure that he’s able to meet the following expectations.
1. Mutual respect
When you look at your partner as an equal, your relationship is more likely to succeed.
Someone who doesn’t respect their partner or doesn’t see them as an equal is bound to ruin the relationship.
I’m sorry, but that is a fact and a woman who knows her worth will never settle for someone who doesn’t respect her.
When you respect your partner and you work so hard to keep them happy, you expect the same thing in return.
Why would you sell yourself short just to be with someone who doesn’t know how to treat you right?
Why would you want to stay with someone who respects you only when they deem it necessary?
2. Reliable support
There are many things that a woman who knows her worth looks for in relationships, but support is ranked way up on her list of expectations.
Because you know your worth, you also know how important it is for yourself to dream big and work hard.
You have many things that you want to achieve in life and you won’t be able to do them if you’re with someone who doesn’t support you.
There’s nothing worse than sharing your ambitions with someone who laughs at them.
If he’s not going to support you, you might as well show him the door right now.
When we say that you require attention, it doesn’t mean that you’re a needy and clingy woman. No.
When you tell a man you need attention, he thinks that you need him to constantly talk to you.
That is so not true! You have your own life and you understand when he needs time for himself.
It’s not a problem when he isn’t able to give you that attention sometimes.
What you really mean is that he doesn’t scroll through his phone while you’re together.
You need him to listen to you intently instead of halfheartedly nodding his head at the things you say.
It doesn’t mean that you want him to stop paying attention to everything but you.
You just expect him to prioritize you and give his full attention to you in the moments that are important.
Yes, you’re a strong woman. But that doesn’t mean that you’re cold and heartless. Actually, it’s exactly the opposite.
You’re more than capable of hiding your emotions and pretending like you’re not affected by the things around you. But why would you do that?
Why would you let your relationship consist of lies and stone-cold expressions?
You want your man to be just as vulnerable with you as you are with him!
You’d like him to feel comfortable enough to show you how raw and broken he is under the mask he wears for other people.
If he needs to cry, he can cry! You sure as hell won’t try to hold back your tears.
Vulnerability is the greatest expectation a woman who knows her worth can have.
It’s something so beautiful, and it needs to be shared with your partner.
There is nothing worse than when you meet a couple and there is no passion or chemistry between them.
They look so bland and boring. Like there’s no fire in their veins.
You don’t want that in your relationship. Passion is crucial because it keeps the flame alive between the two of you.
The fire is there and it feels like it consumes you sometimes. But you embrace that passion you feel between the two of you.
A lack of it only shows that two people aren’t meant for each other.
This expectation is really high on your list because it’s not easy to live for the rest of your life next to someone who isn’t able to ignite that passion inside you.
6. Truthfulness and loyalty
There’s nothing that a woman who knows her worth hates more than when someone is lying to them or being unfaithful.
You know how awful it is when you’re being cheated on, so you would never do that to your partner.
You expect the same thing in return, of course!
Being truthful and faithful to your partner is crucial for cultivating a healthy and long-term relationship.
When you spend months or years building and maintaining trust between the two of you, the last thing you want it to lose it.
This also shouldn’t be an expectation, it should be common sense. However, sometimes we have to remind people of these things.
7. Patience and kindness
There was a time when you thought that you didn’t deserve kindness in your life.
That same belief made you deal with people who were unkind and impatient with you.
Granted, you still have many flaws that you need to work on. But you also know that other people have their own issues. We’re all human, after all!
So like everyone else, you need someone who’ll be patient with you while you work through your issues.
When someone is patient and kind to you while you fight for love, it’ll be the most beautiful bond you’ll ever have.
So, as a woman who knows her worth, you have the full liberty to ask this of your potential partner.
