If you want to gain a woman’s trust, here are 14 things that you can do: They are simple, but not so easy. However, if they successfully work, you will have a better chance of winning a woman’s heart or securing your relationship. Here they are:
1. Start with friendship.
Friendship is the foundation of a relationship. Through a genuine friendship, you can let the girl you like know who you really are without pressure, and vice versa. It may be a slower process, but it is more solid than starting with a date immediately.
2. Be real in front of her.
Being true to yourself before the woman you like will make it easier for her to trust you because she will learn who you are and what you are not.
Pretending to be someone else may impress her at the beginning, but sooner or later she will find out her true colours, and that would make her feel deceived.
3. Make your intentions clear to her.
If you want to date a girl, you have to make your intentions clear. Is it because you like her and want to know her better? Or are you just bored and only want to have fun? This will help her set boundaries for your relationship and avoid disappointments, too.
4. Introduce her to your family and friends.
If you are serious about a woman and you want her to feel secure, then introduce her to your family and friends. This way, she would feel important to you and that you were not hiding anything or anyone from her.
5. Be consistent with how you treat her.
Men are good at making girls feel special during the dating stage, but once they go steady or after a year of being together, their treatment towards them turns sour.
When a girl notices that her boyfriend has changed towards her, she can’t help but think he has found someone else. Therefore, make sure that you remain sweet and affectionate to your girl all throughout your relationship.
6. Don’t break promises.
Don’t make a promise that you cannot keep. Once you have broken a promise, the woman you promised to be disappointed will think you are a liar. It will be hard for her to trust you again, so think before you vow to do something.
7. Never ever lie and get caught.
There is no such thing as a ‘white lie’. All lies, even the small ones, are still lies and can break a girl’s confidence in you.
Women are good detectives, so don’t dare try to get away from trouble by lying—it can make it worse. It’s better if you are honest, even if it could hurt her, because at least she knows she can believe you.
8. Be the first one to let her know.
If you are caught in a situation that you know would enrage your girl, like when you ran into your ex in the lift and got trapped for an hour in it, don’t try to hide what happened.
Instead, tell her immediately, before anyone else does. If she knew it from another source, she would feel you were hiding something from her.
9. Be open to her.
Openness is an essential factor in a healthy relationship because you can honestly tell each other how you feel. It is not good if you cannot trust each other with your thoughts. If you want your girlfriend to be honest with you, make the first move by opening up your feelings and secrets to her.
10. Show that you trust her.
Trust begets trust. You cannot demand trust from a woman if you don’t trust her yourself. That is why you should make her feel that you completely trust her. Don’t check her phone every time you see her or get jealous of her guy friends easily.
11. Don’t be too friendly with other girls.
It’s okay to be friends with girls, but do not overdo it by being too sweet or flirty with them. You don’t want to give your girlfriend any reason to be jealous of them.
Sometimes, a woman can go to the extreme of not allowing her boyfriend to see her girlfriends anymore because she is afraid of what he does with them when she’s not around.
12. Apologise, but don’t make excuses.
In case you have done something wrong that could hurt her, be humble by sincerely apologising and assuring her you regret it. You explain your side, but avoid making excuses to get away from the situation. Excuses can actually make you look defensive and guilty.
13. Be patient.
Do not be impatient when trying to get a woman’s trust, especially if it was your fault that you lost it. It takes time to build trust. Therefore, just be consistent and honest with her all the time. Don’t pressure her to trust you because it would be harder for her.
14. Trust yourself.
How can you earn trust from another person if you can’t even gain trust from yourself? Indeed, it’s hard to earn trust from the woman you love, and you might feel desperate and hopeless.
But girls love to see constant efforts; they want to feel sincerity, patience, and persistence. So if you wish to become trustworthy in the eyes of a woman, learn to trust yourself and don’t give up on winning her mind and heart.
