    It really annoys me when I see social media

    posts regarding how "men are all like this" and "women are like that". men and women cheat, are emotional, want to be alone, etc. the superficial nature of people on these social networking ****** me off because at the end of the day, it's someone innocent on the receiving end...

    It may take a whole life to gain trust.

    ..and just a second to loose it... so, watch your words and watch your steps...

    If a couple is to be successful in having an

    everlasting relationship then it must be built on honesty and respect. I truly believe that If both individuals do not have these main ingredients or qualities then they do not have a real and true relationship until they do.

    Monogamy (Behind Me In Chains)

    I personally believe a real relationship is

    built on respect and trust. I also believe that a relationship I built on accountability and responsibility.

    A fantastic relationship must have two support

    pillars, Trust and Respect. What is it that makes you trust somebody? Can you trust an enemy? If your enemy has the same interests as you, that is, wants to get out the same result in a situation and has much to loose by not getting that results - can you rely on them then? We...

    Oh lies sweet little lies.

    ...is it really worth it. You can't build a relationship on lies & deceit. I personally find integrity to be a very attractive trait. Actually it makes a man look even sexier😉

    If someone leaves you,

    let them go. Letting gi doesn't mean you dont love that person, it means that you let him go and sacrifice your own happiness just to make him/he happy. And if you will stop them not to leave you everything will be disappointment. Love will slowly fades away.

    Any relationship worth having is built on

    respect and trust. Without it, well you do on to others and then split. Its worse than lonely, its a hunted, cursed , constantly watching your back life.

    So the guy I'm dating smokes pot socially,

    but I'm against it....I don't mind that he does it if I'm not around, but he does it even after I ask him not to while I'm around. He left me in bed alone just to smoke pot with friends outside. Am I wrong for being upset? I just feel like he doesn't respect me.

    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.

    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.

    Without communication,

    there is no relationship. Without respect, there is no love. Without trust, there is no reason to continue.

    and responses back to the beginning of March '15. It is like hearing the girls commiserate outside my old high school or on a college campus. Granted, some of the women on here are that age. The women go for the type of guy that fires their hormones, he says what she wants to...

    It's what I believe, I really do.

    Mind you, I have no proof of it, but I do believe it. I find what happens is that respect is often a one way street. A one way street that leads to a dead end. I think I'm sounding a little, or a lot bitter - well, maybe so, and I'm sure it will pass. I'll come back when it...

    I truly agree with that.

    If you have no trust it is no point. Respect also goes a long way.. You have to respect your partner as a person and as your other half.
