    What causes insecurities in a relationship?

    Maybe the fact that, even in a relationship, humans stay lonely? Don't know. I'm a pessimist today.

    I'm a firm believer in constant communication within a relationship.  A lot of insecurity comes from wondering what people around you are thinking, feeling, etc... Not only talking but also listening plays such a huge role in any successful relationship in my mind.

    The number one cause for insecurity in relationships is the thought or belief that the person (you) love does NOT love you with the (same depth) or is not as commited to the relationship as you are.
    We tend to go by what they say or don't say, do or don't do. If she or he really loved me they would or wouldn't do.....etc
    Fear of loving someone more than they love you leads to lack of trust and insecurity!

    Lack of mutual trust and understanding.
    Both the partners should listen to each other calmly and try to identify each others problems and grievances.
    Over possessiveness and over expectation  can be other important reason from either side.
    Each partner should be given their own space as well. One does not have to keep on telling, ' I love you', every time, but some kind of act can be done, so that a feeling of reassurance is felt, that the sincerity is there in relationship.
    It takes a lot of time and effort to build relationships, so each partner must value it.
