Theres guys that are like that it's true. But whats also true is that there's good guy out there who do truly respect women. They have a heart to care for other people. There's lots of guys in this world but some are real gentlemen guys ;)
There is none. They are not mature enough to know how to respect a woman.with age comes wisdom. You want respect look for guys a little older. Between 16 & 19 they are still boys. what you need is a man.
When you get older, you'll find Mr. Right... Guys are behind girls on the whole "maturity" level... So by the time you are grown and completely satisfied with yourself and your life and you don't "need" to find Mr. Right, he will pop up out of no where! Then you'll respect yourself to the fullest and he will just be an added bonus!
Fading Sadly from society. There are no morals in most teens today. Teens and children are no longer being taught to be respectful of themselves or anyone else. It's all anything goes. And until we instill the belief in God, themselves, their country and each other, it will continuously get worse. Bring some faith in God back into society and respect will follow :)
Teenage guys are hormonally driven wrecks. Few have had any lasting, civilizing influence.
The answer given by Logaweed inadvertently shows how screwed up people are by saying "If you mean they only want to get in your pants well that's not their fault. It's instinct it's what people are suppose to do." Who the hell says they are supposed to. No they are not "supposed to." and .. yes it is their fault - it is called SELF control and guys should be using it.
Some of them will mature in a few years, most won't. Until then stay alert.
I know very few teens of either gender that have respect for anyone, including themselves. There are exceptions, not saying all teenagers are disrespectful. Just most. Now you want to get specific; i think you are about to experience dissapointment.
