    In The Beginning...

    there was an unfamiliar look in the eyes;it belied the words forced through a nervous mouth.The body language offered, "I am lying to you about this, and my intentions."Trust was shaken awake and asked for assurance...something it was loathe to give."What you see is what you get...

    my girlfriend is genderfluid.

    i just realised that even if she wanted to become a boy, i don't really care. it doesn't really make a difference in my mind. she is still her (or he, in that case).

    Even If It Costs You A Friend

    I believe it is important to be honest in all relationships - whether it is with family, friends, in person or online, it doesn't matter.  I had to unfriend someone because of her verbal behavior.  The sad thing is that it really was my fault for befriending this person in the...

    Honesty and trust go hand in hand.

    By being honest with the person your involved with, that is what builds the trust between the two. By always keeping the lines of communication going between the two, being open and honest with each other it is easy to maintain the trust it will always be in place.

    Why?

    Sorry to rant, but why is it that people have so much of a difficulty communicating with one another? Especially if the other senses that something is bothering you and asks you directly. Then they respond back saying that nothing is wrong when there really is? People really need...

    If she can't be honest

    and trustworthy then leave her alone. Its very simple if you don't trust her keep walking. She has to be honest, trustworthy, loving, supporting, understanding, and devoted. I will also say that all those go for him too. If you dont have those things your relationship is doom...

    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...

    Without either of these.

    .it's not a healthy relationship. If these two things are missing in the beginning...that's a sure sign to get out before you're in too deep. I've made the mistake of ignoring red flags, then getting hurt in the end because my feelings were so strong at that point, and all I...

    Honesty is the most powerful thing you can have

    what is a relationship built on? Sex and mutual interest? For a lot of people that's enough but if you can't trust the person you're giving yourself to body and soul, then what good is any of it in a relationship

    My wife recently told me

    if I was to every cheat on her, she would not leave me. Was that just the raw truth, her being vulnerable or just expressing how much she loves me? I would never cheat but it's comforting to know. I don't think I would be strong enough to admit that to her. would you?
