is when guys and/or girls wanting to go out and have fun with friends of the opposite sex and asking for trust from his/her boyfriend/girlfriend. People usually say “Trust is everything.”, “It’s normal to be in a relationship and have a tight/mutual friendship with someone else of the opposite sex.”, “I can’t be with someone who’s jealous when I go out with my friends.”
Okay, let me be clear. “Trust” is one of the most important things to have in a relationship. I know that. But to use that as an excuse to misbehave and disrespect your significant other isn’t right in my opinion. How can you ask someone to trust you and not respect them at the same time?
I get it. I get when people grow older and wiser, they should be able to understand the many different dynamics of relationship and not feel insecure. But that doesn’t mean that you should use “trust” to miscarry themselves.
There has to be a balance between “trust” and “respect.” Just like everything else in life. There has to be a balance for everything. Too extreme on either side of the scale isn’t the suitable way to function. Just like parenting, you can’t be too lenient or too strict. I think the same thing applies to relationship. There has to be that line that you draw.
