Should I trust my long-distance BF?
I have a boyfriend who lives about an hour away from me. I have been cheated on before and now I can barely trust guys, so I don't know if I can trust him. What do I do?
Long-distance relationships can be tough, chica, especially if you don’t have the whole trust issue down. Building trust is something that takes time, so you need to let it develop. And just because you’ve been cheated on before doesn’t mean it’ll happen again. Give your BF some credit—staying in the relationship shows that he does care about you and is making an effort.
It’s fine to keep those calls, e-mails, and texts flowin’, but give him some space to breathe. Yes, knowing what he’s doing at all hours of the day will probably put your mind at ease, but it’ll only freak him out and let him know you don’t trust him. If he says he’s at the gym, you’ve gotta believe him—or else you’ll just start stressing.
You have to ask yourself if this relationship is worth being in if you’re going to worry all the time. Having a boyfriend is supposed to be fun, so if you find yourself stressing about him 24/7, it might be best to re-evaluate the situation and figure out if this is best for the two of you.
