When your partner starts comparing you in a negative light to an ex of theirs. Or comparing you to someone else at their place of work or social group. Then it’s a sign of disrespect from your partner, and should be addressed as soon as possible. If your partner cannot love and accept you for who you are, there are ways to calmly talk to you about the changes they would appreciate seeing in you. And these changes should transform you into being a better you, and not feed your partner’s ego.
8. Not appreciating your efforts.
This can be so frustrating. You go out of your way to make your partner feel happy and show him/her that you love them but all they do is compare, nag and show little or no appreciation. This is so disrespectful. It’s best you put a stop to such by calling your partner’s attention to the things you do to please them, yet they don’t even see or acknowledge them. Or else you will end up being so worked up and frustrated.
9. Secretly and openly flirts with others.
What could be worse than this? What kind of humiliation could be worse than your partner whom you so love, and cherish, flirting secretly, and openly with others behind you or in your presence? This shows your partner does not respect you in any way, and it’s best you speak up now about this than sweeping it under the carpet hoping he/she would change.
10. Giving you the silent treatment.
Almost everyone reacts differently when angry. Some need a moment alone to get over what angered them, while others flare up immediately and say the things on their mind, and that’s that. But when your partner is angry and does not say anything to you. But prefers frustrating you, and making your conscience prick you by giving you the silent treatment. This is wrong and so disrespectful. It should be addressed instead of otherwise.
11. Your opinion does not count.
When your ideas or opinions don’t count. Or your partner doesn’t even ask you about what you think about a particular thing or what are the things that could be done differently? Or even sweeps your opinion under the carpet when you render them without being asked, shows he/she disrespects you and doesn’t think of you as being intelligent enough to even be taken seriously.
12. Your partner ignores your messages.

A healthy relationship should require that you and your partner, have space to do other things. Like socializing and have good non-romantic relationship outside your relationship. But when your partner is online and you tend to send them a message but he/she reads your messages without replying, until whenever they feel like, this is wrong, and shows all level of disrespect to you.
13. Not keeping to their promises.
Your partner promising to come through for you when you are in need and failing you over and over again, at the time you least expected, is not only wrong but a sign of disrespect to you. It shows your partner lacks the strong discipline to hold on to his/her words. And are not even reliable.
14. Rarely apologizing.
What could be so soothing as to when your partner sincerely apologies for making you angry, or upsetting you? You will feel loved, and also appreciated. But when it’s the other way round, this can really make you feel sad. Especially when your partner doesn’t feel any remorse for doing what they did to upset you.
NOTE FOR YOU!
If this piece resonates with you, then it’s high time you stop sweeping the disrespect you have been getting from your partner, and call his/her attention to it. And when you do, and he/she doesn’t change, or talk about why they behave the way they do towards you or show any remorse and promise to change. You need to make a personal decision on if you still want to continue with the relationship or run for your own peace of mind, and love for yourself.
