Return to top of Trust Issues in Relationships By Timothy Cole, Ph D, a relationship expert and instructor teaching graduate and undergraduate courses at De Paul University.
As an Associate Professor, Timothy focuses his research on interpersonal communication, deceptive communication, and romantic relationships.
A painful divorce can turn a cooperative partnership into competitive free-for-all destroying a sense of trust in others in the process. As issues of trust arise in your next relationship, it is important to talk about them early on and directly.
If you fail to discuss it, the issue will not go away.
Trust involves knowing that your partner cares about you, that he has your best interest at heart, and that he is available when you need him.
