Signs that you disrespect your partner even if you think you don’t

On the flipside, undermining the other person regularly will cause animosity and bitterness to creep into the relationship.

And here’s the thing about disrespect; sometimes, it is cloaked as ‘helping’ the other person. You could honestly believe, sometimes, that you are doing your partner a favour, or trying to help them, whereas it could actually be a disrespectful thing to do.

Here are 5 instances where you may be disrespecting your partner without knowing it:

You are either making them feel like they’re making unhealthy food choices, or making the wrong friends or taking on issues in the wrong manner. And that’s not so good, according to Antonia Hall, a psychologist and relationship expert: “trusting your partner to adult themselves is well worth the peace it’ll bring to your relationship.”

Stef Safran, matchmaking and dating expert, tells Bustle that if you have a mentality that things have to be done in your way at all times, you could be belittling the other person.

“You may like the dishwasher loaded one way or to clean using a certain cleaning product. The reality is, while you may be ‘right,’ you may also be belittling your partner. Be sure to be flexible and understand that both ways can work,” she says.

Even when the ideas are inapplicable or when you have a better one, you can’t afford to make them feel dumb for proffering the answer in the first place.
