If you promise anything to your girlfriend, boyfriend, or spouse, you are bound to fulfill it at any cost. Well, the safest alternative is there. Do not make any commitment unless you are too sure.

Build trust with your body language: Your words will not alone rebuild the broken trust in your relationship. You also need to match your words with your body language.

For example, if you say you care for her, let her feel it within her heart.

Do not be jealous: Jealousy is a characteristic trait, which can ruin your relationship completely. Stay away from uncontrolled jealousy in your relationship. If your partner is friendly with any of his/her co-worker, it does not mean that he/she is unfaithful to you. It all depends upon your understanding. Of course, jealousy or possessiveness is common in love, but do not let these traits take control in your relationships.

Always keep your expectations high for your partner. No matter what happens, you have to be careful not to lose hope for honesty and reliability from your partner’s side. Unless you have some grave evidence in your hand, you should respect your partner.

Allow your partner to express completely what he/she wants. May be you can get new information about you and your relationship. After that, try to express your state of mind calmly.
