A pick-up artist gave me a good piece of advice: the three most important things in a relationship are honesty, trust and respect, and if you don't have those, you don't have love.
Respect is earned, Honesty is appreciated. Trust is gained. Loyalty is returned.
I don't require lust, sex, or classic beauty; I require trust, respect, and honesty. All else builds from there.
Honesty is the best policy - when there is money in it.
Respect is not ever assigned; it's earned.
Trust yourself, you know more than you think you do.
