What is your Relationship Credit Score?
Much like a credit score, relationships take hard work and dedication.
What is a relationship credit score and how do you make it the best it can possibly be?

In so many ways the amount of trust your partner has in you can either make, or break your relationship. I like to think of it as my relationship credit score, while it takes time and commitment to maintain healthy levels; it only takes once or twice to bring the whole thing crashing down- begging the question, what's your relationship credit score?

If you've already broken the trust in your relationship, you're going to have to fight tooth and nail to regain any sense of worthiness within your situation.  If you think it's as easy as wiping the slate clean and starting over with a new person, bear in mind that breaking one's trust can leave a stain on your reputation for years, if not your entire life. So, how does a person begin to regain trust once it has been broken? Much like your credit score, it's going to take a lot of hard work and dedication, but it can be done. Here are some simple things you can do every day that will have you back in good standing in no time.

Improving Your Relationship Credit Score

Be Consistent

If you have wild mood swings or change the way you interact with your significant other frequently, it can cause instability in all aspects of your relationship. Be confident and steadfast. Show her you know what you want, and don't allow your outside life to dictate how you treat your love.

Be a Man of Your Word

Telling your significant other that you're going to "take care of it" and not following through is not going to give her the confidence that she can rely on you to do much of anything.  Plain and simple, a woman is not going to judge you on what you say, but what you do. If you don't follow up your words with actions, than you're no better than the boy who cried wolf, and soon the entire village won't believe you.
