    My Profile May Seem Wayward But My Life Is Not.....

    I have a somewhat wild image if you read my profile stories. However if you actually read about me in my profile before reading my stories you get to know about me. So don't let my experiences throw you or confuse you. I wholeheartedly believe a relationship is built on respect...

    Yes

    I do believe a relationship is built on trust, and respect. I believe if you don't respect your partner, and you don't trust your partner than you guys are not really going to have much of a relationship. I believe that is why a majority of relationships fail, because people...

    I would rather be alone with dignity

    than in a relationship that requires me to sacrifice my self respect.

    And it scares me because I have

    neither . My SO does not respect me . He told me himself that he hasn't for almost a year , and there is no trust on either end , I don't know what to do . I love him with all my heart , I want to be with him forever but how can I be with someone who doesn't respect me .

    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.

    I do believe that if you want to have a real

    relationship with someone then you should respect and trust one another. Even if you know the person is lying to you don't call them out on it right away. There could be a good reason for the lie. Just give it some time and see how it plays out. But if you want you to call the...

    Trust means everything to me

    and without it in a relationship there is nothing. You also have to have respect.

    Relationships are about trust,

    so if you have to play detective in your relationship, it's time to move on.

    Yes it'll always be. How can two people talk

    and understand each other? How can a couple who has diverse thinking and beliefs be at peace and at one with each other? Simple, because they respect and trust one another. Respecting boundaries and trusting the love of their partner

    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.

    A relationship is definitely built on trust

    and respect. My last two relationships were not that great. In my first relationship the guy I was with was never really there for me. I moved from the city I lived in to his just to be closer to him. I am a U.S citizen and he was an illegal so I figured it was easier for me to...

    each other. It's respectful to be honest and honesty earns 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.

    It takes time to built a relationship with somebody you want to be with. To me who you are with doesn't matter as long as you are happy. Sex would be nice but I want to meet somebody who lives me for me. That means with my good qualities and my faults. Accepting my common...

    Without communication,

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

    Yes.... Usually that is what we hope is

    sustained but over time.... But sometimes it fades and that person in which you respected and trusted becomes another page from the past and a lesson learned

    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.
