Did you think only men can be simps? Think again!
We all know that respect is the foundation on which we build solid relationships. Especially if you’re in an intimate relationship, it can be assumed you respect your partner as a human being, but what happens when efforts to show respect go to extremes and fall into simp territory?
Can Women Be Simps? Absolutely.
A female simp is a woman who puts herself in a submissive position under men in hopes of winning them over without the man bringing anything to the table. She’ll do anything for male approval, including throwing other women under the bus or accepting bad behavior from men. She has little to no respect for herself, nor does she accurately discern when a relationship isn’t serving her or when it’s time to walk away. As you may have guessed, this concept goes hand in hand with Nice Girl Syndrome. Many women eventually find out how easy it can be to blur the lines between showing respect to a man and being a simp. How can you tell the difference? There are a few core principles to consider.
Respect Is Earned, Not Given
