There are certain considerations or factors that everyone takes into account in a relationship. People may look for honesty, altruism, understating, loyalty, being thoughful etc! Everyone would more or less wish that the person he is dealing with, has some of these virtues above. Putting them in an order according to their importance, however can be subjective and relative.
When someone asks him the question “What do I consider to be the most important thing in my relationship?” the answer depends on a lot of factors such as how his earlier relationship were.
After stating that everyone’s opinion can be different about this, for me honesty, in other words, always telling the truth is the most important consideration in a relationship. Opposite of this is inarguably lying and if someone needs to lie, either she is hiding something or is afraid of telling me something.
In any relationship of mine, I would wish that first of all, the person I am dealing with is honest. Even though she thinks that she did something wrong that I would not like, she better tell me the truth and not lie about it. Later on if I find out about a lie or hear the truth from someone else, that would be much more umpleasant. In that case how can I ever believe or trust that person again? How can I ever belive that this person has enough confidence in me to forgive her and carry on with that relationship from there. So if I cannot trust a person anymore, if the person does not think I can handle the truth, there is no point to continue that relationship.
Although I would like to see altruistic, understanding, thoughful and loyal behavior from people, an instance of the opposite of these behaviors would not upset me as much as dishonesty would. Among all the possible behaviors, dishonesty is the only one for me that terminates how I fell about the person’s reliability. Therefore honesty would be my first concern and the most important consideration in a relationship.
