I Find Honesty and Trust Very Important In Any Relationship

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 12,054 People

    I am ridiculously and at times stupidly honest.

    Trust is tricky. I will still hurtle in after you but I expect you to turn round and burn me any second. Sorry I think that. So I will gaze at you suspiciously if you want to be my friend. Because in my experience best friends wait to take husbands. If you want to be...

    I'm recently single,

    which isn't a bad thing. My ex fiancé was a completely untrusting person. She was Facebook stalking both her and my exes, so she could comment on how "she's not crazy." Her exes have all apparently told her she was crazy, it wasn't until the end that I would have to agree with...

    After my leg went bad,

    we moved to Winston-Salem, NC for a new job. The guy who interviewed me was the guy I'd be working under and a Staff Sgt in the National Guard. I really liked the guy and he'd promised a raise after my 90 day probation. Cool. And so, like I do, I busted my ***. My brother...

    that many intoxicated women been flirting with your partner whilst working as a bouncer (which boosted his self-esteem), how to do control that angry emotion.

    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).

    I am very confused right now.

    I feel betrayed by two people that are close to me. I am mad actually because I don't learn from my mistakes. I have the "stupid" gene that lets people in and trust them. How come it never occurs to me that people will manipulate others people for their own selfish reasons...

    Honesty is the most powerful thing you can have

    in a relationship. Even when the truth makes you feel uncomfortable. Trust is just as important. Without trust your relationship seems to fall apart more day by day. I don't have a lot of trust in both relationships and friendships. I am learning to be able to trust people...

    100% this to me is the biggest deal with a

    relationship. White liars don't bother me we all tell them but if you start to lie about things then I guess I get slightly paranoid and I always wonder are they being honest? I can't deal with that crap in a relationship tell me the truth no matter what I might think of it at...

    Question for the ladies (or guys too).

    Would you trust someone whom had slept with another woman during the beginning of your dating relationship? He slept with another woman when we first started dating, but claims that we technically "weren't together" yet. I didn't find out until months later as he told me "he...

    just because you are looking

    for someone real it doesn't mean the real genuine people are obligated to be with you. everyone has preferences and they have to actually be attracted to you before you start entertaining the idea of being with them. some people like lighter complexions, others like darker...

    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 find so many couples these days,

    in which the relationship is so unfair.. At least I find it so. One of the partners (lets call it A) is only seeing his/her partner (B) as a fall back option for the needs. A will keep flirting and sleeping around, looking for a 'better deal' who would be ready to stay. Whereas...

    Keep your promises and tell the truth.

    – If you say you’re going to do something, DO IT! If you say you’re going to be somewhere, BE THERE! If you say you feel something, MEAN IT! If you can’t, won’t, and don’t, then DON’T LIE. It’s always better to tell people the truth up front. Don’t play...

    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.

    Without honesty and truth,

    you can't have a relationship. A woman or man that lies to each other slowly erodes a relationship one tiny cut at a time. Likewise, partners that are always suspicious of each other also destroy their relationships. Constantly snooping or accusing your partner isn't going to...

    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...

    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...

    Without honesty and trust,

    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
