Sincere in general is doing something without expecting anything in return, looking deep into this topic, each individual has own definition of sincerity. In the world today, i realized this value is lesser. People actually are very calculative about certain thing, not necessarily money.. and some people always want returns for every effort they put for someone or something.. How can we really be sincere without expecting any returns since as human,we always demand for rewards for efforts and hard work we have done..

When you are sincere to a person,then you are in love with this person as a friend,as a family,and especially as a lover.There is no monetary value of your sincerity,since you love this person,all your efforts are given in the name of love,yet it denotes the intensity of your sincerity the love you can give to this person.

Then it means we still expecting love in return of the sincerity or if otherwise, you may not be sincere anymore if there is no more love.. Or does sincerity will mostly limited to those we love only?

Intense sincerity is the effect of your devoted love to the person,yet if love is lost it does not mean you are no longer remembered by their sincerity but only in the name of friendship.

well in my opinion sincerity is the most important part in any realtionship....it is a bond which keeps the realtionship alive and yes i think expecting sincerity aginst your sincerity is not wrong it is an effort from the other side to keep that healthy realtionship going and it will come naturally if the relation is true and faithful. but on the same time this topic is really deep and every body has theri own opinions....and i think if you actually are a nice person by heart will naturally be sincere in every relation that you want to keep...:D

As you believe in Islam I think you can star being truly sincere by doing things for you God. Everything you do is for higher purpose than money it will bring back sincerity in human heart.

To me, sincerity means that our words and our actions are going line up and be something that does not have any sort of disconnect whatsoever with them. There are just a lot of times where I could say anything but what I do is really something that gives strength to my words. And obviously, talk is in fact cheap, as anyone can do it. Of course, sincerity is one of those things that is something that is rather lost. Everything that is said has some double meaning, some deception, something to really pull people in. The world itself may be insincere, so it will breed some insincere people. We just have to do what we say and say what we do and in the end, we will prove ourselves to be sincere.

Sincere has a wide meaning , it means sticking along with something without any distractions...e.g your are sincere with your partner and only your partner and you have no distractions or you can bear with it...you ll get happiness out of it..You call not people as not sincere as they dont stick to what they need to do... i hope its bit confusing with i use here :)

It depends on a person. While some always expects something in return whenever they do a good deeds, others are contented with just helping other people. I always believe that life is an echo. What you give is what will return to you even without expecting it in return. It is hard to not expect but it is possible. It is better not to expect because if your expectation does not meet surely you will feel frustrated even a little. It is always hard to find sincerity but you can find it and it should start from you.
