And does one gender test more than the other?

many people probably do but hopefully not. it's silly and unproductive0

if you feel the need to test your partner, you are insecure.
that said, i've had trust issues ever since i was young (likely due to my parents' messy divorce, among other factors) and, when i first started dating my now-boyfriend, i made it clear that my trust is earned, not freely given.
(the fact that he did make the effort showed me that he respected my wishes and would respect me in other ways too. in time, i did come to trust him~ in fact, i would put my life in his hands without a second thought.)
