How to trust again

My last girlfriend cheated on me and we broke up not too long ago. I don’t think I can ever trust a woman to fall in love again. But I also don’t want to let her actions determine my life and never find love again because I am too afraid. Will I ever be able to trust? How do I get there and leave this betrayal behind?

  1. Did you not hurt yourself, falling from a bike during childhood ? You developed a phobia of the bikes for a while. Then you saw other kids on their bikes, having fun and you gathered courage to ride your bike again.

    Look at all the happy people. Let it not be the case of once bitten, twice shy. Find out someone who shall help you overcome this trust issue.

  2. Yes your last girlfriend has done something terrible and that relationship failed. You can choose what lesson you want to take from this. To become a better judge of people, ensure you are not taken advantage of, and see the signs of someone wanting to be with someone else. Or you can take the lesson of never being with someone again. I’d choose the former anyday! 🙂

  3. I hope you are able to trust. No point carrying the burden of someone else’s mistakes with you for life. Know that not every woman is a cheater and there are many women also that have suffered because of cheating men. Relationships involve taking the plunge. Don’t let fear dictate you

  4. Just give it time. The wounds won’t heal in a day. But it is good that you realise that you should not let this affect your chance to have a happy love life. When the right person comes along, you will be able to trust, slowly but surely
