If You Can’t Trust Your Boyfriend, You Shouldn’t Be with Him

Relationships are built on trust, respect and communication. You need all three to have a successful relationship, and they should come naturally if you’re with the right guy. However, if one of those things collapse, the rest will follow pretty soon after. If he doesn’t respect you enough to be open, how can you trust him? And if you can’t trust him, how can you be with him?

There’s a reason you don’t trust him. If your intuition is telling you that something’s wrong, why aren’t you listening to it? He’s obviously given you a good reason not to trust him, so why are you still with him?

Trust doesn’t mean innocent until proven guilty. But that also doesn’t mean you can treat him like a criminal until he earns your trust. If you start off your relationship questioning his every move, then he won’t even feel like it’s worth it to prove that he’s in it for the long haul. Fix your own trust issues first, and then start looking for an open and honest relationship.

Trust is a two-way street. The less you trust him, the more untrustworthy you become. If you’re so untrusting that you snoop through his phone, social media, or even web history, then it’s pretty clear he can’t trust you either — at least not with his right to privacy.

Your relationship isn’t worth the stress. When you don’t trust your boyfriend, all you do is worry. The right man will be a stress reliever — after all, you need confidence in your relationship, not constant self-doubt. If the lack of trust is causing your relationship to be more work than reward, then it’s time to reconsider why you’re even together.

You’ll never be truly happy. Because you’ll always be wondering what he’s doing and who he’s with. How can you be happy when your relationship makes you so miserable? An untrustworthy man just isn’t worth the effort. The right guy will bring you piece of mind, and when you can fully be confident in your relationship, that’s when you know it’s truly happy and healthy.

Betrayal runs deep. If he steps out on you, could you really ever get over it? You’re lying to yourself if you think that the betrayal doesn’t tear a huge hole in your relationship. If he hurts you, you either have to find a way to work together to get over it so you can rebuild or move the on.

You can’t count on him. If you can’t trust him to be there when you need him, then what’s the point? He doesn’t honor his commitments, so how important can you really be to him? You need a man who will always be there and whose love you never have to question. It’s time to start seeking what you deserve and stop putting up with the BS you don’t need.

It’s the definition of dysfunctional. When you don’t have trust in your relationship, then it’s just plain unhealthy. In order to have a healthy relationship, you need to feel secure. When you can’t trust your partner, you’re automatically insecure about your relationship. So if you can’t trust him, then the best thing you can do is let him go and find someone you can.
