Building trust in a relationship can be challenging, especially after he shares that he’s “not much of a dessert eater” and prefers things like “meat” and “vegetables”. It’s pretty normal to feel alone and betrayed after learning this about him. But don’t worry, here’s how to trust him after he says, “Actually, I don’t have much of a sweet tooth.”
Confide in Each Other
In order to build trust in your relationship, find moments to talk about the deep insights and fears you have. Share what scares you the most, like, for example, the time you offered him some of your Ben & Jerry’s pint and he responded with “Oh, no thanks, I’m usually not in the mood for dessert.” What the hell is wrong with him? Maybe keep your guard up for a little while longer until you can sort this out.
Stay Open and Honest
It can be hard to stay open and honest if you’re unsure how your partner will react to learning more about you. Push past the fear of rejection and stay open to connecting to him. This is much easier said than done, especially after you offer him a bite of your almond croissant and he politely declines by saying, “That’s just a little too sweet for me, but I’d love a bran muffin.” Stay strong! He may be a monster but you can get this relationship back on track.
Be Generous With Each Other
Give your partner the attention he deserves. You should expect the same from him, and when he shows you love, make sure you acknowledge and appreciate it. Doing something to please your partner can be the key to a healthy relationship, so why doesn’t he just eat one slice of the pumpkin pie you spent hours making? When he says, “It smells really good, but I don’t love pumpkin or sugar,” try not to scream out loud or sob on the floor. He’s an idiot!
Appreciate His Consistency
Celebrate that your guy is consistent about communicating. Wow, he is especially vocal about hating all fucking chocolate! How does a person get like this? This is worse than cheating!
Here are ways to trust him after he drops the bomb that he doesn’t really like sweets and would never seek out candy. It may be hard for you to imagine a life with someone like this and, to be honest, it’s probably not going to work out.
