    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 girl admits she likes you then you should

    know how much courage she took to say it, Aur naa jaane kitne proposal thukra ke usne ye tumse kaha hoga.... Don't take it for granted.

    Absolutely. Mutual respect,

    love and adoration. Without it there is no good relationship.

    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.

    Sometimes I wish I never gave this person my

    trust, loyalty, respect, and love. I wish I never let him felt my presence. I wish we never met. I wish we never became close friends. I wish I never fell in love with him. I use to say that I'd jump a bullet for him from all we've been through but man...I wish I should of...

    TRUST is a feeling...

    a cause and effect kind of thing. One cannot say that it itself does not exist because it can be gained and lost, and it is seen in the actions of us humans. And yet, no one can really grasp the concept of trust. I suppose I will just start out with what I view as trust and my...

    At 51, I'm thoroughly enjoying being afforded

    the opportunity to do this once again. I think most of us recognize and understand the importance of respect and trust in our primary relationships, but the same holds true for other relationships in our lives. I'm enjoying once again being in the "building" stages of a...

    I believe that it doesn't matter what someone

    looks like or what their weight is. Or how smart they are. A relationship shouldn't be based on looks. To me it should be where you don't judge a book by its cover. I look at your personality more than you looks

    Those are musts for me in any relationship,

    whether platonic or romantic. Without those basic building blocks, it won't last long or go very far.

    Too many people rush relationship these days.

    They can't wait to get to the 'good parts' and, subsequently, fail to build a solid foundation. And then... well, then they are surprised when it falls apart around them.

    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😉

    A relationship built on a nice,

    sexy body is like a candle or a fire: As long it´s burning it´s good and hot, but when the fire or the candle is finish there´s nothing else. The outside beauty will leave all of us with the age. But the inner beauty and values like respect and trust is in a good partnership...

    Chains and Change Our relationship is a chain.

    It's a series of links, each one separate and unique, but joined together for a common cause. Every link of that chain is formed in the forge of our relationship, and each one takes the two of us. A simple gold chain is the symbol of our relationship. You wanted it early on as...

    in dating around 11-17. Sure gaining experience from past relationships makes u more aware but it's completely overrated. I know so many people who confess their love for someone when they are only 15!! and they are very overdramatic talking about how they can't go on with...

    relationship isn't built on personality

    or appearance it's based on the deeper profound level of connection to another person it's based from the development of attachment

    I'm not saying you can't have a relationship

    without these things but these are the foundations. You want that house to last in the bad times you need them.

    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.

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

    Felt sad. I promised to compromised my

    principle to have an affair with a lady whose husband is medically challenged. After serious thought, I felt I won't honour my promise. She insisted on the respect and trust on me to help her stay in marriage. I can't just do it.

    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.
