As has been said already, we all need to know we can trust our partner, and friends, we give trust and expect it back as we have given it, but trust is a fragile thing and once the cracks appear they are so, so hard to mend, no matter how much you try. The hardest part is when the love was still there but the trust had gone and the relationship slowly and painfully slipped away, this is perhaps what makes it so hard to start again. But hey, life is short, sometimes we have to pick ourselves up, brush ourselves down and have another go but perhaps cherishing honesty and recognising how important it really is to us all right from the start is not that bad a thing? Having lived with a compulsive liar for far too long I can't understand why I still didn't want it to end and kept 'forgiving' and hoping he would change, all I did was prolong the inevitable so yes, me too... I am just looking for honesty!
