Trust issues dating

I don’t really know how to make her believe me…What do I do?

First, some general thoughts on anyone struggling with another person’s trust or insecurity issues, whether it takes the form of clinginess, fear of intimacy, jealousy, or any of the hundreds of other ways it can manifest.

But before I go any further, let’s talk about what baggage is.

Trust has to be earned, and it is a long, tough process.

If you are dating someone who has been in hurt in the past, and finds it difficult to trust, it will be hard to earn their trust.

She's passionate about love, writing, chess, and more than anything, her two kids.

You, understandably, are making the assumption that she has abandonment issues because of her ex, so that’s where you’re focusing your reassurance. Some people have no problem sharing their FB password because they have nothing to hide; other people think that would be invasion of privacy regardless.

Writer, the accommodations you might have to make may take the form of (a lot) of reassurance. You see, I didn't think he would do it, and that's why I am so messed up. I worry too much about other girls, your ex's, and what you're doing when I'm not around. Sure, I will feel better with the ring on my hand knowing that you chose me, but what if you change your mind.It's just that once I go through something like that, it's always in the back of my mind. I can apologize and say it's never going to happen again, and I promise I will try, but I can't say it won't be on my mind. I really am NOT worried about that girl that likes your IG pics, or your ex, especially (I mean, EX for a reason right? But I can't say that I won't let that feeling make me say stupid things. I know it's a lot of baggage to deal with, but with the pain and heartbreak comes a strength that can push through anything, and that is exactly what we will do.But be careful that that doesn’t turn into her asking you to stop hanging out with any women alone. It’s important to give every person that you date a blank, clean slate, and a fresh start.Part of having an open heart is giving your trust to someone.
