I Find Honesty and Trust Very Important In Any Relationship

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,630 People

    I would rather you be a man

    and tell me the truth no matter how bad it is than lie to me and I find out through someone else. By not being upfront with me I will believe that everything that comes out of your mouth is a lie and will no longer trust you.

    To Be Honest.....

    I don't think a person understands how important honesty is in a relationship until you've been involved with someone who is dishonest. One of the great disappointments for me is learning how easily a person can look me in the face and with great sincerity tell me a complete lie...

    It's heartbreaking to know

    that routinely guys and girls are cheated on. While love and a relationship is what I crave. It just leaves me / us so vulnerable. Without a doubt it's always worth the risk but lately I just keep hearing about people falling victim to the lies. Why is it so easy for people to...

    The Most Important

    I do find trust and honesty the most important part of any relationship. I feel like those are the basic elements. Without honesty and trust there is no relationship. I don't see the point in having a relationship built on lies and i don't see a relationship going anywhere when...

    I have found that throughout my life,

    I have trusted people, giving them the benefit of the doubt and believing they were and are good people who have my best interests at heart. However, over the years, I still trust, but with much more caution. I've been hurt far too often by my tendency to trust first. I want to...

    Loyalty Is Super Important As Well As Trust And Honesty

    If you are not loyal to me as a friend or lover in the beginning then you will never be. It tells of your character and I only allow good, kind, giving, forgiving, loyal, upright, honest people in my life. Don't tell me you love me in one breath while telling another the same...

    Today I finally came to the conclusion

    that I am too quick to give someone my trust. And even though he once made me wonder if completely giving it up was the right choice, I quickly forgave him and moved on, it really wasn't something worth thinking about. But after today I really am going to have to step back and...

    My relationship is very dependent on trust

    and honesty. We have a somewhat long distance relationship. I trust him not to get in trouble or compromise our relationship and he trusts me too. I am working on trying to be more honest with him. I just have to start being more honest with myself

    Trust is the foundation

    for any relationship to work. Without trust there is no possibility for anything to continue. I've never understood people who take back a partner after they have cheated. It's all very well when they apologise and say "It was a mistake" but can you truly, deep down in your...

    I don'ty like a man who is dishonest with me and making me a fool, not telling me his wrong doings. I believe that trust is all we need in every relationship. How can someone love a person when trust is lacking.  You can always love a person you trust than a person you only...

    I want people to tell each other the truth.

    This is especially important in relationships. The truth can hurt sometimes, but that's what friends are for. To support one another and understand each other people shouldn't lie. You should strive to be open and honest, as well as a friend who's trusting enough for others to...

    If you do not have honesty

    and trust in your relationship, then you have no relationship at all. It is a sham and others will be hurt so get out of it.

    something that I've never had in 1 freakin

    relationship, not much counting on it to happen either, not going to stay single the rest of my life but not expecting anything great. just not going to get too attatched to anyone anymore, for me, that's the smart thing to do.

    I think we all have an idealist idea about "the
