Alright, if you’re a fan of cheating, raise your hand. No? No takers? Of course not. No one likes being betrayed and lied to.

When you date or marry someone, there’s an expectation of loyalty (unless you’re into open relationships, but that’s an entirely different topic). You want the person you date to be faithful to you, and that’s how it should be.

No, this isn’t article about cheating. Rather, it’s one about rewarding those who are committed. So if you’re one of them, give yourself a pat on the back! That means that you not only have found someone you can trust, but they feel the same way. You don’t have to worry (too much) when they go out or come back late.

Having a faithful relationship is something everybody should be able to expect, but also it’s something to strive for.

Being faithful doesn’t only mean that you know the other person won’t cheat. It’s also about being committed to that person. Now that could look different to everyone, but an example would be taking a genuine interest in the things they love or wanting to go with them to run errands. Little things like that show how conscious you are of making it last a long time.

Of course, if you’re already in a relationship, you already know all that. But there’s a difference between knowing and doing, so I want you to ask yourself this question: how faithful am I? It’s simple enough, but it’s also a question that I think could stand to be thought about a little more. It’s kinda like one of those things where you know what something is, but when someone asks you to describe it, you can’t.

So, if you’re really blanking on an answer, allow some others to offer up what being faithful means to them. Look to these quotes about being faithful and loyal to your partner to remind you about all the good things that come from commitment.
