    Wanting to Be a Clean Slate

    I recently entered a relationship and though a lot of things are going well and there's a great personal connection, I feel sad that she doesn't trust me. I would really love to have the benefit of the doubt more often. It's nothing personal (she struggles with trust in general...

    Frankly, if I can't trust someone,

    I won't be in any kind of relationship with them. Romantic, platonic, professional or otherwise.

    I am very grateful for the people that I can interact with on a simple, open level. Meaning no double-talk, no subtle digs, no hidden agendas. I don't have to be calculated or wary in my dealings with them, just myself. I'm tired of the people who appear to be friends or...

    Trust Is A Must

    I can't do anything personal or at least intimate with anyone who I don't trust yet. If you want to build a trust with me, it takes a little time. I like to get to know the person. Bring in some fun, and see how they react. Then again-- there are times where I meet certain...

    Relationships based on trust are one of the

    best relationships people could have you can't be or shouldn't be in a relationship if you can't trust one another, and a big form of communication is also important :)

    I want to say that I'm dating a RSO (Registered Sex Offender). He didn't tell me when we first started dating, because he was afraid I'd run away. Naturally I panicked at the first thought. But when I confronted him about it, he told me what happened, and how he was fixing his...

    Trust And Happiness

    IMO, trust is the 1st and most important element of any relationship and following closely is personal happiness. If the partners are not happy or know how to be happy, a lot of bad stuff can happen including the erosion of their trust in each other. In fact, I'd say that...

    Trust Takes Time to Recognize

    Based on my experiences, I would say that trust is essential and baseline. I have had many relationships based on projected hopes and dreams and I was blinded by them and on it went.

    Friendship, Intimacy, and Love

    It's Not One Without

    This is basically my belief on it... if I can't have trust in that person and/or they can't in me, then it's not a relationship at all. It's time to shake hands, part ways, and move on. That's why most of my relationships haven't lasted more than two weeks... once I find out a...

    Because I tend to keep to myself, keep my guard up. But when I finally open up and let them in, they run away. And ur left with that feeling like, "damn, I ment nothing to huh?" Disappointments after disappointments it's so stressful, so draining, so frustrating and so hurtful...

    Trust Is Important

    If a relationship has no trust then I don't even think that there is a relationship. Both parties waste to much energy worrying about what the other persons motives and hidden agendas are, that they miss out on what is right infront of them.
