You know you have messed up any serious relationship is when your realize that you have lied to someone that you are truly in love with. Not only do you then have to tell the person that you have just hurt that you lied to them. You have to then have the courage to tell them the truth.
Also you now have to work on building up trust in the relationship. We all know that it easier to destroy someone's trust in you, then it is to build up the same amount of trust.
I would like to hear anyone elses ideas and thoughts about this topic
UPDATE IN REGARDS TO TEMPLETON
I guess I would have to disagree that women are expected to make men work for knowledge. In any good relationship shouldn't both sides desire more knowledge about the opposite person they are with? Or is that just being too naive?
