        but I try very hard to trust him. I give him a lot of leeway to live independently, especially with regard to business trips, nights out with friends. I realize I have deeply rooted trust issues. There have been a few incidents like this one where he just seems to fuck up out of the blue, but never caught him being unfaithful.
