Should you leave a guy if he doesn't trust you after 8 months?
Assuming that you have not provided him with reasons not to trust you then I would say that after 8 months it's probably time to throw in the towel. He's not likely to change.
I agree with Duchess, If after 8 months he doesn't trust you he never will.
Make that 3 for 3. I agree also. Trust is just too important in a relationship. If you have not done anything to earn distrust, you should be trusted. Trust is a two-way street. You must give trust in return.
Just think about his past relationships. Did he have trust problems then? Did anyone give him a valid reason to have a trust issue, ie...cheating, breaking up after vows of love, etc...if so, maybe give a little time. A lot of the time people who don't trust you do so because they know that they don't trust themselves. Mistrust and checking up on you all the time goes hand in hand with abusive relationships too, so be careful and don't be blind! Otherwise, dump him. The only thing worse than having no relationship is having a bad one!
I agree with the feeback you've already received. If he hasn't learned to trust you after 8 months, his attitude is probably not going to change. It's probably an insecurity, but it's not your fault he's like that and his behaviour and attitude is likely to cause you to want to end the the relationship, as you'll tire from being treated with distrust.
jealousy is a horrible thing to live with. People who can't trust often are liars and cheats themselves.
Yes, If he can't trust you after 8 months . . then when will he?
Months should not be counted in deciding about such people. A person in the habit of mistrust is hardly satisfied with himself. The relation where there is no trust is of no use to carry on.Don't give any more opportunity to him to improve himself or trust you.
I was in a relationship for four years. Throughout the entire relationship, my boyfriend did not trust me. He would make outrageous accusations, most of which, hurt my feelings.
And while there was a part of me that could see myself marrying this individual, there was another part of me that had to come to realize that he may never trust me. I finally ended things for good. What kind of a relationship can you have if there is never any trust established between the two? Not a healthy one.

I have known this for a little while now, and even left for awhile because of it. When I came back, my boyfriend and I decide to start over with a clean slate... and for awhile it worked. And then I found out he's been...
