    I remember ending a relationship mutually with

    an ex. I was moving to a different country, and he wasn't sure whether he could manage a long distance relationship. He said e respected and trusted me, but not sure whether he could trust himself. He said he respected me too much to cheat on me, but he wasn't sure whether he...

    Monogamy (Behind Me In Chains)

    Too Often...

    Too often we seek to satisfy before we think, and we give before we can be given to. Such is a woman's life! We are very much goddesses, as the kabbalists might say, because we are selfless most of our natural existence, giving as lovers, giving as mothers, giving as crones, and...

    If a couple does not have respect

    and trust then they do not have a relationship at all. This is especially true when it comes to the bedroom.

    "I Believe A Relationship Is Built On Respect And Trust"

    How can a relationship not be built on respect

    and trust? There will a whole lot of discord because every time you leave their presence, it stresses them to think of you cheating, or anything that isn't right. without respect or trust you have nothing.

    I personally believe any kind of relationship

    is always built on a minimum of respect and trust. If these two and other ingredients are not in place then you have a phony relationship with someone. You may want to rethink your priorities and value system in your relationship with another person.

    Trust

    When a relationship is started, there should be mutual understanding and trust. That is the essence. A man and woman should have mutual respect and trust. They have to understand the other. Many relationships are broken because of misunderstandings and loss of trust.
