    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 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.

    Monogamy (Behind Me In Chains)

    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.

    To me that means being completely honest with

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

    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.

    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.

    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...

    I'm so sick and tired of being falsely accused

    of cheating. I've never cheated on anyone I've been in a relationship with and I'm not going to start now. However, if you don't believe me just leave me. Without respect and trust, there is no relationship anyway.

    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

    Without communication,

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

    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 used to think that.

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

    Relationships are about trust,

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