Relationships are a vital aspect of today’s milieu. It is primal for humans to desire a relationship – whether romantic or not – with another human. To corroborate that initial remark, it is ONLY HUMAN to desire a relationship. On one hand, relationship, especially the romantic ones, are beautiful; they tend to bring out the best in people. One the other hand, relationship, most especially romantic ones, can be somewhat complex. You could say that it is complex because, humans, in themselves, are complex species – and this complexity reflects in the way humans relate with each other.
That aside, a fundamental aspect of every relationship is trust. And, as humans, it could be hard to completely trust another human. Well, some psychologists opine that the lack of trust seen in human relationships is because man is instinctively wired to trust only himself. Funny enough, it is implied in an old Russian proverb – trust, but verify. So, what becomes of a relationship when partners do not trust each other? Are all relationship bound to fail eventually because man has an innate desire to trust sparingly? The truth is, it takes time to build trust, but exactly how long will it take?
While you are trying to trust your partner, know that your lack of trust will always be glaring and it can hurt the feelings of your partner. So, what do you do? For a start, one thing that most partners are terrified of is, being cheated on. The lack of trust in some people was brought about by their partner’s cheating. They felt that if they were cautious or more suspicious, they would have prevented the untimely termination of their relationship. Everyone knows that you can always know if your partner is cheating by being privy to his or her location – a nudge or an inkling is not sufficient to serve as proof.
For those who stayed with their partner after he or she cheated, building back trust, or just building trust, could be difficult. In times like that, verbal assurances are never enough because, if they were enough, the act of cheating would not have occurred in the first place. The kind of assurance that is needed would be a tangible one, such as knowing the precise location of your partner. Therefore, if you are new in a relationship, or you are in a relationship where your partner once cheated on you, you can build trust by using apps that monitor the location of your partner.
The first thing that you need to do before you install and use a location-tracking app on her phone is, talk with your partner about it. It is crucial that you do this, else, it will cripple any effort that you would make in trying to trust your spouse. Failure to inform, or better yet, discuss with your partner about using a location-tracking app will increase the already existing chasm in your relationship.
A tracking app works bilaterally; that is, you can know the location of your partner and, he, yours. However, it will not sound like that in the ears of your partner who just cheated. He or she would feel like you do not (completely) trust what they say, which, on one hand, is true. But, you deserve every right to be skeptical after your partner cheated on you. Although you can be skeptical, there is a way to go about it. Ergo, why you should talk with your partner before installing and using the app.
You should explain why you are having a hard time trying your partner again, or like it was stated earlier, just trusting people. Talking it out with your partner will help straighten out as friction that may or may not occur in the future use of location-tracking apps. After talking out with your partner about using a tracking app, download and install any location-tracking app of your choice.
Some Benefits of Location-Tracking Apps
For those in a long-distance relationship, a tracking app can be of great benefit. Long-distance relationships are more susceptible to fracture, unlike short-distance relationships. If your partner is in London, UK, and you are in South Carolina, US, you may begin to develop some skepticism about the fidelity of your boyfriend, when he does not return or pick up your calls. If you are a person that does not trust easily, actions like this can enable that trait of yours. Or, if your boyfriend, of recent, cheated on you, the fastest assumption that your mind will cook up is, “He is on the verge of cheating on me again.” However, if you and your partner are using a location-tracking app, you can know the real-time location of your partner. It could be that your partner is at the office, hence, unable to answer your call. It should put your mind at rest, knowing that your partner is not lying about working late at the office.
Some individuals do not like to answer calls when they are on a long-distance trip. Or, if you are dating an introvert, then you should know that he or she does not place premium attention on talking for long over the phone. If your relationship that bears semblance to this situation, you have to utilize other means to facilitate trust between you and your partner. A location-tracking app can help you in this regard. Instead of persistently calling your partner – of which, if he picks up, you’d most likely ask about his day – you can use a location-tracking app to become privy to his daily activities in real-time.
If you are keen on trusting your partner, talk to him or her about your fears, and how you can work it out using a location-tracking app. While some may argue that tracking your partner’s location will increase the friction in the relationship, it all boils that to the individuals in the relationship – they call the shots.
