Why Lack Of Trust Can Destroy A Relationship

Most everyone knows that trust is one of the main building blocks of a relationship. Without trust in the relationship, you might as well say that there isn’t really a relationship, this is really essential when you are looking for a relationship on online dating sites. If you are in a relationship that lacks trust, you are in for a lot of potential relationship problems that can eventually destroy the relationship. Here’s a little bit on why lack of trust can destroy a relationship.

First and foremost, when there is a lack of trust in the relationship, there will be problems. The problems that result from not trusting in your partner and the relationship is what eventually can destroy the relationship. So lack of trust is like the trigger to further relationship problems.

You can look at it this way. You are the gun, your lack of trust is the trigger, the bullet is the relationship problems, and your relationship is the target. What sets you off or the gun off in this example is the reason for the lack of trust that you have. Eventually, when that bullet reaches the target, it will either destroy the target or leave it really injured meaning the relationship is destroyed or it is suffering and in need of fixing.

To put it in plain terms, if your relationship lacks trust there will be problems. Some of these problems include possible cheating, jealousy, arguments, lies, doubting the relationship, and stress. These problems can eventually destroy the relationship.

Some of the things you can do to build trust in your relationship include being honest both with yourself and your partner, making your best effort to fulfill promises made by you, making it clear about what your mind and don’t mind when it comes to things such outings, communicating with other people of the opposite sex, etc, leaving the past to be in the past in regards to past relationship experiences, and simply making an effort to trust them.

If your partner doesn’t give you a reason not to trust them, then put a little trust in them. If they do give you a reason for not trusting them, then go back to the reason and try to get that solved. For instance, if you caught your partner kissing another person of the opposite sex and this has caused you not to trust them, go back to the problem and find out why it happened and how they feel on the matter and try to forgive them and get them to work on rebuilding your trust.

This may be hard to do but over time you will be able to tell if all that trust is gone for good or if that trust is being rebuilt so that everything can work out alright. If you don’t want a lack of trust to ruin your relationship, work on the things that can build or rebuild trust and see what happens.
