The Misconception of the word....... "Trust" I had a pretty heated debate with a lady friend of mine last night! She told me in so many words that in a committed relationship we should "trust" our partners enough to allow them to have access to EVERYTHING and ANYTHING. This includes our wallet, our bank account, our cell phone if they feel the need etc. I then asked her if she would reciprocate this invasion of privacy and she responded, "yes, but there are certain belongings of a woman that you should not touch!" I then tried to explain to her that the word "trust" is not about invasion of privacy. We looked up the word "trust" in the Merrian-Websters School dictionry and it says: Trust/ noun: assured reliance on the character. I then went on to say that if you trust someone, like the defenition, you are sure that you can trust them so there is no need for proof. Trust is faith in that persons character. Of course she disagreed, she said that trust is in KNOWING that the person is doing what he is suppose to do. What do you guys think? I had the time of my life arguing back and forth, yet we never came to understand what men and women really need in refrence to trust in relationships.
