    Once Bitten Twice Shy

    Prove It Buster!

    I trust very quickly, but don't play me for a soft target. If you are clearly lying, I can usually tell... it's called "wise biatches intuition".

    Not Too Much Anymore

    I've learned that truth is presented not in the actual words used but in the way they are presented.  If you look beyond the words for the feelings and emotions you will find the true meanings of the individual speaker or writer.
