When you want to give people the benefit of the doubt, it’s hard to know how strict or lax to be, especially when it comes to dating somebody new. You try to remind yourself that you don’t know their entire back story, that it’s easy to take things out of context and that it takes time to get to know someone. On that note, you may let some things slide that rub you the wrong way. But as a human, and especially as a woman, you should listen to your intuition because it’s probably right. If a man does something that makes him seem suspicious, dishonest, or like he’s in this for the wrong reasons, don’t make excuses for him; confront him about what he did or, if it’s really bad, just walk away. Because one thing is for certain, these are some things trustworthy men never do.
Give no explanation
If a trustworthy man runs late or takes an unreasonably long time to return a call, he tells you why. He doesn’t just show up late, say, “Sorry I’m late” and change the subject. Trustworthy men want you always to feel secure, so they explain as much as you need them to.
