How to Get Your Friends to Trust You

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

These steps will show you how to have your friends trust you from the
very beginning of a friendship. Developing the bonds of trust early in a
friendship can be fast or gradual depending on the experiences each of
you bring to the friendship. It is definitely worth putting in the
effort to create this trust, whatever your prior experiences, and you'll
find that you gain an enduring friendship in which each of you can rely
upon one another to the ends of the Earth.

    Be trusting yourself
    . Before you can expect your friends to trust you, you need to show them that you are trustworthy
    and that you trust in them. Trust is a risk but when it comes to
    friendship, you're more likely to make and keep a friend by trusting
    them than by being a cynic and staying wary all the time. Ways for your friend to establish that you are trustworthy include:

    • Don't renege on promises
      and appointments when you make them. Provide clear explanations or
      apologies if something genuine does go wrong to prevent you from coming
      through with your promise.
    • Show emotion.
      Showing emotions to a friend is an important and easy way to show them
      you really care. Being open can result in two things: Either you get
      hurt because you left yourself open or you are given secrets when
      friends confide in you. However, it's better to reveal your emotions
      than to bury them so deep that your friend finds you shallow. Give it a

    Be kind.
    Kindness is a large part of developing and maintaining trust because in
    trusting your friends, you are giving them the gift of compassion and
    support. It is a great kindness to be able to readily show faith in
    another person and support them even when they don't feel that same
    level of faith in themselves. It is kindness that cements the growth of

    Ask questions.
    If you ask a lot of questions if a new friend from the very beginning,
    they will see it as a sign that you are interested in them and their
    life. This will indicate to them that you're not someone who only thinks
    about themselves and your friend will begin to confide in you with
    their deeper feelings and even their innermost secrets.

    Be humble.
    Being humble is hard at times but if you master it, then your friends
    will not be afraid of you judging them. Being humble is the best
    approach to reassuring a new friend that you aren't arrogant or
    condescending. A humble person earns trust because humility is about
    placing the other person first. In acknowledging that you make mistakes
    and that you're not all-knowing, your new friends can see that you're an
    easy person to like and eventually, to trust.

    Don't tease your new friends. While you may consider it just horseplay or funny, they may see it as demeaning and lacking in respect
    for them. A person you don't know at the start is a person who will
    eventually want to confide in you. Teasing or making fun of them is not a
    good idea because a person who constantly makes fun of people is a
    person who can't really be trusted and may be insecure enough to be
    condescending toward the friend out of their earshot. If you tease a
    friend from the start, when that friend is ready to confide in you with
    something serious, they will pass.

    Avoid being demanding. Friendship is about give and take, not about
    dumping all of your problems on your friend. Trust can be difficult to
    establish when one friend demands too much time, comfort, support,
    or reassurance from the other friend. This can cause your friend to
    feel hassled out and to be wary of what you're going to dump on them

    • Give your friends space. Clingy
      and needy friends are suffocating and suggestive of a lack of belief in
      the friendship enduring breaks. Giving each other space is a sign that
      you trust your friend to still be your friend without having to be
      breathing down each other's necks constantly. You know your friend will
      be there when needed, and your friend knows that too.
    • Another reason to avoid being demanding and/or clingy is to lessen
      the element of fear or worry driving the relationship. A person is less
      likely to trust if they feel that there is a risk that the needy or
      clingy person might transfer their loyalty to someone who seems more
      supportive at the time, and impart confidential information just to win
      over a new friend.

    Be non-judgmental. Judging your new friend won't help them to trust
    you. Initially they may find your "advice" helpful but after a while,
    when your friends realize that you always think you know what's best for
    them more than they do, they'll be afraid to come to you with any confidences.
    Instead, treat your friends fairly, with respect, and with dignity.
    Listen to their confidences in a supportive and non-judging way and
    given them your unconditional support.

    Talk on the phone. Talking on the phone is an excellent way of
    getting your friend to open up and share new ideas and thoughts with
    you. The trick is to ask questions, to use your voice to suggest your
    emotions, and to try to be serious with them. All of these combined will
    allow your new friend to reveal things they are feeling at the moment.
    Eventually they'll confide in you and trust that you actually care about

    Share with your friends.
    Being nice is something easy we can all do. Sharing your things, your
    time, and your dreams with a new friend is an excellent way for them to
    grow to trust you. Your new friend will think about the whole of your
    goodness every now and then. You can share candy, money, clothes, your
    time, your skills, and even your holiday home. It's really up to you.
