The Lynch pin of love is trust, without it the relationship becomes a house of cards.

agreed but trust isn't earned as most women think it's a gift between two people. Women or men that think it's earned have basically conned themselves into believeing they can trust the other. Fact is once you hurt trust you can't get it back to where it was.. Again knowing what love is thus trust and everything else that goes into that has to be known before you can seek love. Just the way it is and most today who think they know what love is have no idea what it is

Those abstract qualities sure aren't what people go by choosing who they date.

Physical traits...money...living in or out of a mother's basement...type of car...

I have to say it is more that one singular thing.

Honesty.
Willing to compromise.

Just off the top of my head..but it is more than one thing.

Honesty
Trust
Compromise (on both sides)

And as far as arguments, try this. As a rule you can only argue if you are naked. Ever tried to argue and fight with a naked person? You either end up having sex or laughing your a** off. Either way the argument seems less important.

Communication is only as good, if its sincere. Alot of cheaters know how to work their mouthpieces and tell their S/O BS, while they do some dirt.

This I a BS romanticized idea of trust, trust is absolutely earned. Its earned through track record through proving your worthy. If you simply give it away it holds no value and means nothing, except that you are nieve.

trust is a gift between two people thats why once you hurt it you can't ever get it back. To think otherwise is a foolish thought

Excuse me how the f**k would you know? You have no clue how I define success. As far as I'm considered trust given away willie nillie has no value and I don't want it so you can keep your delusions. Ill take what I've EARNED from my partners.

Not to mention your argument is predicated on a non sensical premiss. If its GIVEN freely...then it can always be Given back...you've just described a choice, so your original argument is oxymoronic.

All of the other things people have posted are good things but( and this is just a sugetstion) don't most all of them stem from trust? If I trust you its because your honest, you communicate effectively, your willing to compromise, you've show kindnesses, and there is reason to believe you will continue to do the same? Just my thoughts. What do you think?
