  • We do it with our children from time to time!
  • I do think you can love someone without trusting them, but that isn't very healthy. The trusting either comes from A - something one person did to lose the others trust, or; B - The person who has a trust "issue" but both of those things can be solved with time :)
  • I do and have , though I now draw the line + 5
  • Well people don't always trust their children but they still love them so my guess is yes.
  • that would be vary hard to do because when you love them you trust them.
  • Nope, trust is a cornerstone and without it that feeling of love is false. It's like a building with no foundation.
  • Unfortunately yes. Love is a very weird thing. I love and trust my wife very much, but years ago I was very much in love with someone I didn't trust as far as I could spit. My lack of trust was in fact well founded. It did not keep me from loving her. Thank God for unanswered prayers.
  • Parents of teenage children have to do this all the time. You can love someone unconditionally even when they are being really unlovable, it just takes whole lot of deep breathing and something inexpensive that you can break. I will say this though..you might be able to love someone without trusting them, but having a healthy relationship would be all but impossible
  • Sure. I don't even trust myself.
  • Absolutely 100%. I love my sister, but I don't trust her as far as I can throw her. (That's not too far. She's bigger than me and would fight back.)
  • Sadly YES!!! I'm living proof!
  • That's a hard one...I think ideally no you can't since love is build on mutal trust...but if you trusted them and one point and loved then, but one day they lied my love wouldn't just stop right there with a lie, but the trust would be broken...
  • I think I could love someone without trusting them, but I would be in a relationship with that person, I think trust is just as important as love.
  • I'm only speaking in terms of those we choose to love, not those we are expected to love, such as family. The day that it finally hit me between the eyes that I could never trust my husband again no matter the circumstances was the day my love for him as a husband ended. I still care very deeply for him as the father of my child and as a friend and a roommate (we still live under the same roof to remain constant presences in our child's life and ironically we get along better than we ever did before) but there can never be any romantic love between us again. There is simply too much water under the bridge.
  • I'm not sure if I possibly could, but I want trust to be developped before love in my relationships, the trust being there first and being a solid foundation already, will help the love quite a bit.
  • yes you can love someone and not trust them ....but you can never be IN love with them
  • Yes you can love anyone without trusting them..but I wouldn't want to be in a loving relationship with them.
  • I think you can love someone you do not trust, but I don't think you can be part of a sustained intimate relationship with someone you do not trust. For example, I may love a cousin, but not trust him. However, if I didn't completely trust my husband, I, personally, would not be able to stay married to him.
  • nopeeeeee!!!!
  • Sure you can ....I don't trust anyone 100%. I can always hope they are trustworthy and still love them.
  • Yes i can do that.
  • Absolutely not. Trust is a crucial part of keeping a healthy relationship together. Without trust, you feel like the person is always doing you wrong.
  • yes defently, but i think its a lot better when there is trust in the relationship because with out trust you it could end in heart ache
  • Yes, but you can't have a successful relationship without trust.
  • Yes I kno you can because I did!!!!!!!! Its not cool at all, because even though you love the person with your whole heart you know that you cant trust him at all! It makes you a bit confused because you only want to believe the best about the person - but deep inside you know you cant!
  • yes i think you CAN love someone without trusting them, i love my boy friend im with VERY much but i don't trust him anymore because he cheated on me but im still IN LOVE with him! he just needs to earn my trust back!
  • going through that right now... i was in a different state we met up an fooled around then i went back outer state but we wasnt official i wasnt sure i was gonna come back she gets herself in a situation where she says she got taken advantage of ive questioned her for 3 months for it an i still get the same answer an made her cry an fustration for not believing her... i cheated on her 1 month ago an she forgave me i was upset and hurt on what she did cause i was interested in her even though we wasnt official. now shes been telling me what she went through an i still find it hard to belive her even if she cries an gets hurt saying even the person i love wont belive in me... am i been foolish
  • Yes , as long as they are my children
  • I think so but its hard to say. I wonder...isn't trusting the same as loving? I don't trust some people and I think I love them but perhaps I am wrong?
  • Yes, and it's extraordinarily painful.
  • Not for long, because suspicions tend to wear away that good foundation of love and respect. Without respect you can't love the other person.
  • Yeah....that's the only way I've ever been able to love anyone. It sucks, but I can do it.
  • Yes you can, but a relationship is no good withour trust. If you don't trust this person and you have a relationship, a romantic one, you'll drive him away!
  • Yes. It hurts, but it can be done.
  • No... I think if you love someone you trust them with everything.. even your heart. Trust is a key component in love.
  • no...it will belike loving but youre never at peace with him,because you have doubts in him,because you cannot trust him.
  • no...... it is paradoxical. Sometimes the more u love some one, which means u care he/she more. the less u can trust this person. Because u r afraid to lose him/her. HM....but sometimes when women fall in love , the trust everything their bf said. Depents on the personality , I think :)
  • Yes, i think you can..:)
  • obsulety no...without trust..it wont work out...and dats not love
  • yes im still with him
  • yes. people make mistakes, and those mistakes can cause you to lose trust. but with love comes patience and with patience and love together you can gain the trust back. i love my boyfriend of a year to death . he has never cheated but talked to a few girls behind my back and has lied, therefore the trust isnt fully there. but i have all hope and faith in the world that with time i will trust him again. as long as he cuts the shit =]
  • Yes, i love someone but, do not trust them...i wish i could.
  • In a relationship, "trust comes first" in order to build a foundation.
