Building Trust After Cheating –
How to build trust in a dating relationship again
a man with trust issues breeds insecurities, jealousy, and paranoia. show your partner that you can be counted on, calling when you say you are going to and making your schedule an open book, advises sheri meyers, marriage and family therapist and author of “chatting or cheating: how to detect infidelity, rebuild love, and affair-proof your relationship." as a therapist who specializes in couples and relationship problems, i hear this all the time from clients who have been cheated on and then decide to stay in the relationship. but you're not my client, so here's my advice:my first tip is to stop thinking about cheating in a black-and-white way and instead think of it as points on a spectrum, with flirting on one end and a full-blown, top-secret affair on the other. pop songs cement it in our brains that when a guy cheats, it's time to slash his tires or burn down his house, not have an honest conversation about the relationship. course, the trick question is, "how do i know if the relationship is worth saving? but you know what, find strength in the fact that you're able to trust your own judgment and able to make a decision that is right for you.’s easy to compare yourself to another person and wonder what you did wrong in the relationship to make your partner step out.
