  • It may be that you need more time to heal and to process the reasons why you have been involved in so many of the same type relationships. Unless we learn from our mistakes, we tend to repeat them over and over again, so it may be that there is something about you that attracts this same type of guy time and again. There are some nice guys in the world who don't cheat, lie and abuse, so I think you should spend some time learning how to attract one of those.

  • Once you heal then you can move forward and trust again. You are still hurting from the past and that is going to continue to cause issues of mistrust.

  • I'm right there with you mama. I still have trusting issues. I say it's time to get rid of the new guy and work on yourself before getting into another relationship. If you just continue to get into relationships with lack of trust you're just punishing yourself and driving yourself crazy.

  • Talk with him. See what happens. Its hard to learn to trust someone after you've been hurt so much. It just takes time.

  • My aunt tellsme to stop looking for Mr. Right and enjoy Mr. Right now. It's gets a little easier, just a little easier, if you enjoy male cmpany without any expectations. If he cannot accept a no, then oh well. When you are not ready, you are not ready. I posted so many relationship questions on here that I finally thought that everyone was tired of reading my posts. Take time for yourself and you will know when you are healed or close to being healed. Remember that every man is not the same and when relationships go bad, don't always blame yourself. Good luck.

  • A relationship won't last without trust. The ability to trust someone is easy at first, but once someone has betrayed you by lying to you, it takes even longer to get it back.
