There’s nothing more solid in love than knowing that you can totally trust your partner. When you are able to have a fully honest relationship, one with true unconditional love it removes a huge potential for worry. Having an honest relationship strengthens the bond of two people and creates this buffer between the two of you and the real world. When you have an open and honest relationship, one where either can share the past and present honestly, there isn’t any room for outsiders to diminish the connection.
White Lies – Good or Bad?
While little white lies may seem okay in any relationship, after all you are telling them as a means to keep your partner from suffering the sad emotions that may occur, it’s not a good idea to tell white lies. There are times when you may debate inside whether to tell your partner something or not, but you would be shocked to learn your partner may feel more secure when you open up. Trying to protect your partner from feeling and responding to scenarios only hinders the ability for you two to have a deep connection. White lies can truly damage a relationship, so it’s best to simply be upfront from the beginning and form an agreement that neither will judge the other for being completely honest.
A Level of Comfort
An honest relationship gives you a huge level of comfort in knowing that you can implicitly trust your partner to be who they are regardless of their past or present difficulties. Your relationship grows substantially when honesty is the route of your connection, sure it will take time to trust that you can openly discuss anything with your partner, but it won’t take long if you start the relationship off in this way.
The Tone for Honesty
Honesty isn’t just about telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you God, it’s more about how you tell the truth. As time goes on you can determine which way to word the truth so that your partner knows you are being honest all the while they accept the truth easier. This is where being with someone you truly love without conditions will come into play. Unconditional love means you will love your partner regardless of what they tell you, having a relationship based upon your own experiences together as opposed to rumors that others have created.
Be Kind and Love Blossoms
The best tip I have for you today in regards to having an honest relationship is to curb the brutally honest approach, as this can cause more damage. Approach sensitive subjects with a level of kindness, the right tone when telling your partner the truth about your past or current scenario will be the deciding factor in their response.
Your relationship will thrive when honesty is the core of your connection, it helps to solidify that bond you both want for the long haul together. An honest relationship allows you two to rise above any of life’s difficulties and challenges together. Remember that honesty is a way of life, when you are an honest person to the outside world at all times, you will be completely honest without fault within your relationship.

I’m not convinced. As a guy, I know there are definitely times when little while lies are MUCH better!
You know, one of my Twitter friends made the same erference. That as a guy he does feel some white lies are acceptable. I get it. Totally. I just think that white lies meant to withhold something that could come out later, may not be such a good idea. A little white lie like the dress looks great, when it indeed makes her look large? Well that’s no harm no foul 🙂
Honesty builds trust and security. It’s really important in a relationship and it’s something that should be valued. I really like this post, it makes so much sense!
Honesty is always the best policy–unless you will hurt the other person with that honesty-then perhaps a little white lie is in order!
Honesty does a wonderful thing! I can’t handle dishonest people in any situation, especially for a relationship!
Honesty is the most important thing to me in a relationship.Without it I know I can not be with that person bc if I cant trust there is nothing I can build on.
This is so true! Honesty is the key in any relationship.
You are right! It’s really important for the relationship that you can totally trust your partner. A tiny white lie once in a while doesn’t do much damage either.
I always say that honesty is the best policy. Lying doesn’t get you anywhere fast.
