Trust Issues

Michele and I dated on and off for about two years. She lived nearby and I really did love her, she just drove me crazy at times. She was very jealous and would go through my phone and things like that. I told her a relationship should be based on trust and that I trusted her, so she should trust me. She never did and I found out after the fact that I was wrong to trust her. She had been seeing someone behind my back for the last six months of our relationship, eventually ending up pregnant by him and breaking it off with me. I now think she didn't trust me because she thought I would do the same as she was doing. I didn't, though. You have to have trust for a relationship to work.
