How to build trust in a dating relationship

Dating—that is, scheduling time to spend with a person of the opposite sex to get to know them–can be a wonderful time in a person’s life.It challenges us to grow as individuals and to learn more about others. Here are four basic points to keep in mind when dating. Know your intentions Are you looking at dating as only a means of finding a future spouse?

Just enjoy the time you have with that person in the present moment; tomorrow will take care of itself.

Being up front about one’s beliefs will weed out dates that are not worth your time from those that are.

One must not only say things up front but back them up with actions.

If your spouse's behavior reflects his consideration of your interests and feelings, you have good reason to trust him to avoid doing anything to hurt you.

The second rule is the Policy of Radical Honesty: Reveal to your spouse as much information about yourself as you know-your thoughts, feelings, habits, likes, dislikes, personal history, daily activities, and plans for the future.

While it could potentially be the end to the means of dating, finding a future spouse should not be the main intention of dating.
