win reputation


Can I say ( win reputation)

ANd can I say " gain trust" ??

I think when I say

gain trust means >>self confidence

but “win trust” means that others trust him

Am I right ?

It has to be win someone’s/something’s reputation.
He won his reputation the hard way.

He is slowly gaining her trust.

  • this sentence should make it obvious that we are not talking about self-confidence, but the trust of someone else.

He is slowly winning her trust. means the same thing.

so gain and win are ok with othres’ trust

what is the difference between gain and win ??

when should I use just one of them and when can I use any of them ?

Generally they are interchangeable.

Can I say gain friends ?
