Trust, or the feeling that you are safe sharing your emotions with someone, is a vital component of any relationship. Conversely, a relationship without trust is bound to come to a quick and bitter end. Trust issues could be the result of being cheated on in a previous relationship, or the result of a poor upbringing. Whatever the reasons may be, here are three signs that will help you identify if your partner has begun to loose trust in you.
1. They Are Constantly Snooping Around
If your partner is going behind your back and looking through your belongings, this may be the first sign that they do not trust you. If you notice that your purse, wallet, cell phone or desk drawers are not the way you left them, it means that your partner is trying to gather information without asking. A small amount of snooping is normal in any kind of relationship, but if this occurs on a daily basis your partner has some serious trust issues.
One way to address this problem is to leave your belongings out in the open. This will show that you have nothing to hide and will make snooping seem unnecessary. Another solution may be to exchange passwords with your partner to your cell phones and social media accounts. Once the discover you have nothing to hide they may stop going through your cell phone altogether.
2. They Ask Too Many Questions Whenever You Go Out Without Them
If you are going out and your partner suddenly starts bombarding you with a line of questions they may not trust you. If they constantly want to know where you are going, who you are going out with, and when you will be coming back, they may feel as though you are lying to them. Your partner may think that you would rather spend time with other people, as people with trust issues often have low self esteem.
