Trust is a central feature in all healthy, positive relationships. After all, how can you share your life with a partner who you can’t trust? A fling is one thing, but a committed, long-term partnership requires genuine honesty and faithfulness.

But how can you tell if you can trust your partner? It’s normal to have doubts, especially when more serious commitment is in your near future. Luckily, some factors indicate you’re dating a keeper.

Here Are 10 Signs You Have A Partner You Can Trust

1.    They Are There For You

When you’re going through a rough patch, this person is always there. When you need to talk, they’re happy to lend an ear. It’s about more than just presence, too – here are some areas that show they can be trusted:

·         You Have Never Had To Chase Them

Your partner wants to be around you. They don’t make you come after them. You both equally make an effort to spend time with one another, and it doesn’t feel like you’re always begging for quality time.

·         They Do Things That Inconvenience Them For You

Will your partner do things for you that they’re not necessarily the most comfortable with? Or do they shy away from doing things for you at their expense? Take extra note if you’re always doing things for them but they never return the favor.

·         They Really Mean It

A lot of people say that they’re there for you, but when everything comes to blows, and you need someone by your side, they’re no one to be found. If your partner has proved time and time again that they will be there, you can trust them.

·         You Feel Safe Around Them

Sure, instincts can be wrong sometimes, but sometimes you know you can trust someone. You feel safe around them. They’re your rock, and you turn to them first before anyone else.

2.    They Talk To You But Also Listen To You

Your partner will put down whatever they are doing to talk to you. They are eager to talk to you after a long day, and it seems like second nature to them to tell you about what’s on their mind.

A partner who turns to you in good times and in bad trusts you, and therefore, they themselves can often be trusted. If they tell you about their day and relate funny stories to you from their lives, then there’s a good chance that they aren’t hiding anything. They want to share things with you!

A trustworthy partner is also a good listener. You feel safe talking to them about your concerns and frustrations. They respect and validate, focusing more on understanding than on responding.

If you happen to bring up any relationship-related issues, your partner responds in a positive way. They do not dodge questions and are open to communication. In this situation, it’s quite clear that they have nothing to hide.

3.    They Are Trustworthy In Other Aspects Of Their Life

If your partner can really be trusted, then you’re not going to be the only person who thinks that they are trustworthy. They’ll be reliable all around. Here are some signs of that:

·         They Do Not Tell Exaggerated Stories

They don’t inflate tales to make themselves sound cooler or better – they tell the truth, even if it’s underwhelming.

·         They Are On Time

They know the value of punctuality and is on time for meetings, dates, and hangouts with everyone they know. If they’re running late, they’ll be sure to let others know as soon as they realize it – and that’s a rare occurrence!

·         They Don’t Gossip

They have no interest in spreading rumors or listening to tall tales. They much prefer hearing the truth from the source.

·         They Are Regularly Relied On In His Workplace

Their colleagues know them as someone who can be counted on.

4.    They Communicate With You Well

Communication is the most crucial aspect of a relationship of any kind. It shows that you know how to deal with problems in a positive way. Here are some key features of communication that indicate a partner is genuine:

·         They Look You In The Eye

Many liars have difficulty maintaining eye contact. They are usually concerned with being caught and don’t want you to catch wind of it in their expression. However, skilled liars may overcompensate by making too much eye contact.

·         They Are Willing To Talk About Difficult Things

No matter how awkward or painful something may be to discuss, a trustworthy partner is willing to talk about it. They understand the necessity of communication through trying times.

·         They Don’t Make Assumptions

Insecurity can cause partners to make incorrect assumptions about their significant others. Instead of allowing those assumptions or fears to grow, they talk them through with you. They also accept your responding gestures of faithfulness and would do the same to you.

5.    People In Your Life Like Them

When you are in a relationship, you can be too close to the situation to see things objectively. The people closest to you who care about you will be able to see problems with more clarity. They also tend to be protective of you, allowing them to be more critical of what your partner does.

Sure, your friends and family can be a little harsh on the person you’re dating. But this just means that they may notice small issues and even red flags that you’ve been overlooking in your infatuated state. Plus, you know that if someone has their approval, there’s a good chance that they can be trusted.

A partner you can trust will also not go out of their way to avoid hanging out with the other people in your life. They understand that these people are important to you and may even want to impress them.
