Trust is the foundation of any healthy relationship.
So much has been said on signs a man loves you but what about signs he trusts you?
You’re probably wondering, how does one find out whether a man truly trusts them or not?
You need to look for signs that show he trusts you when it comes to your relationship.
So, how do you know if he trusts you?
Below are signs that indicate your man trusts you:
10 Signs He Trusts You
1. He shares his plans with you
If your man trusts you, he will share his plans with you.
It’s that simple.
He lets you into his plans because he trusts you with his information and trusts that you won’t do anything to sabotage them.
If he doesn’t trust you, he’ll keep his plans a secret.
Although some men can be secretive and paranoid, in this case, his failure not to share his plans with you has nothing to do with you.
It’s his issue, not yours.
2. He seeks and values your opinion
A man who truly trusts you will want your opinion on things because he trusts and values your judgment.
It could be in little things like if to watch a movie or what kind of food he should eat or in more serious things like where he should go on a trip, what career path to take, if he should go into a business, take up a job offer etc.
In fact, he trusts your judgment on his relationships with his family and friends.
If you tell him to stay away from a certain someone in his life, he trusts that it’s coming from a place of love and concern for him, and not because you are jealous or insecure.
This is why getting a man to trust you has so much to do who you are.
You make yourself untrustworthy if you are unnecessarily jealous, insecure, and dishonest.
3. He values your concern about his well being
A man who doesn’t trust you will dismiss your concerns easily but a man who trusts you will take them seriously.
If he doesn’t dismiss your concerns easily, it means that he respects and values what’s on your mind.
He understands that you are looking out for him and wants the best for him.
If he doesn’t value your concern, it might be that he doesn’t trust you.
4. He feels safe with you
If a man trusts you, he’ll feel comfortable enough to confide in you because he feels like he can tell you everything without fear of judgment or criticism.
This means sharing things such as positive emotions, like his successes, or negative emotions, such as disappointments and sadness.
This shows he trusts you because he doesn’t think that doing so will change how you feel about him in any way.
He knows you won’t make fun of him for being human and having these feelings from time to time.
If your man is unable to confide in you and open up about his feelings, then he is either ashamed of them or doesn’t trust you.
There’s a good chance that this means there are some deep-seated issues going on with him if he can’t talk to the woman he loves about how he feels.
5. He lets go of control
Another sign that your man trusts you is the fact that he gives up control.
If he doesn’t trust you, he’ll try to control the outcome of everything.
He will have a problem with letting go and giving up control.
If he trusts you, however, he will be comfortable enough to let go of the reins sometimes because he knows you’re there to guide him the right way.
This means that he trusts your judgment enough to let go of control and not be overly protective, controlling, or paranoid.
He lets you make decisions for things big and small because he knows that your purpose is to work together as a team.
He doesn’t need to know everything that’s going on.
Sure, he wants to be involved in major decisions but the little ones are for you to decide because he trusts your judgment.
6. He trusts that you won’t hurt him
A man who doesn’t trust you will question everything that comes out of your mouth and your actions, even if it’s positive.
He’ll think things like, “Is she trying to manipulate me?” or, “Does she really mean that? Or is it just for show?”.
He won’t feel safe being vulnerable around you because he doesn’t trust you to have his back.
This is why this sign is important.
If your man doesn’t trust that you will not hurt him or deceive him, then he certainly won’t be open with his feelings.
He’ll always be on his guard around you and will never trust anything that comes out of your mouth.
He won’t feel comfortable sharing with you because he feels like he has to constantly be on the lookout for signs that you don’t have his best interests at heart.
7. He believes what you say
If he doesn’t trust you, then everything coming out of your mouth is automatically suspect.
He won’t believe anything that comes out of your mouth because he’ll think that you’re trying to deceive him or manipulate him in some way.
If your man trusts you, however, then he believes everything that comes out of your mouth.
He knows you’re always upfront with him and he has no reason to think otherwise, so he believes you.
This means that he doesn’t second-guess or doubt anything that comes out of your mouth because he knows you mean every word.
8. He respects you
A man who doesn’t respect you will not trust you, either.
If he doesn’t respect you, then he won’t trust your judgment or decisions because of the lack of respect that he has for you.
It’s a two-way street with trust and respect, so if the former is absent from the relationship then it’s not surprising that the latter is, too.
This means that if your man doesn’t respect you, then he also won’t trust you because a lack of one usually means a lack of the other.
If he doesn’t respect you, then there’s little chance that he trusts you because he probably sees you as unworthy of his trust.
9. He doesn’t mind being vulnerable with you
Being vulnerable is not always easy, especially for men who are not used to opening up about their feelings.
If you’re in a relationship where your man doesn’t mind being vulnerable with you, then that’s one of the signs he trusts you.
A man who doesn’t trust you will never be vulnerable with you because he’ll always be on the lookout for signs that you’re trying to take advantage of him.
He’ll feel like being vulnerable around you is a sign that he’s weak and not in control, so he won’t let himself be.
A man who does trust you, however, will not think twice about being vulnerable around you because he knows that you’re there to protect him, not take advantage of him.
This means that he will be comfortable enough around you to let his guard down and be open about his feelings.
He’ll have no problem being vulnerable with you because he knows that it’s safe to do so.
10. You know he trusts you
One of the signs he trusts you is that you know he trusts you.
Just as a woman knows when a man loves her, she also knows when he trusts her because she can feel it.
She’ll know that he trusts her if the signs are there, such as him opening up to her about his feelings, being vulnerable around her, and believing what she says.
She’ll know that he trusts her when he respects the decisions that she makes and doesn’t second-guess her judgment.
She’ll also know it when he’s comfortable around her to the point where he’s willing to let his guard down and be open about his feelings.
If you have made yourself trustworthy and he still doesn’t trust you, then it’s no fault of yours.
You can’t make someone trust you if they’re not willing.
