It's very difficult for me to have respect for fake people.
See, here's the thing. You and I might not get along, but I would have a lot more respect for you if you just were genuine, and behaved to me in a civil manner (or non-civil, if you wish) rather than being fake!
There is this person I know, who shall rename nameless.
I discovered, a few months back, that all along, while she promised to help me with something, she was pretty much doing the opposite. I'll give you an analogy to what she was doing. Imagine I have a crush on a guy, and she's being my wingman, analysing texts with me from this boy, etc. But secretly, she's going to this guy, and trying to hit on him herself! But all the while, she acts concerned in front of me.
(I repeat, this is an analogy).
So I found this out, and I was pretty disgusted. But no matter.
Then I discover that she's been going around saying a lot of things about me. Mean things, nasty things, trying to destroy my credibility, etc.
That's still fine. I mean, we all have opinions about people. I certainly have not been quiet about my dislike towards her.
But! The part I absolutely loathe, and find repulsive is that when she sees me she tries to cosy up to me. "Babe! Let's hang out! Let's catch up!"
First of all, I hope you get this through your brain, but my name is not Babe.
Second, I do not want to hang out with you. You, who are a horrible person, and who has been saying horrible things about me behind my back. But how can you be so fake? And how can you be so stupid? Don't you realize people tell me the things you say?
Third, you don't like me, and I don't like you. So let's just be civil to each other. There is no need for this mockery of .. I don't even know how to describe this! But it's absolutely disgusting and it shows me exactly what kind of a person you are.
So, no. I don't have any respect for you.
Consider yourself decluttered from my life.
