I Do Not Trust People Easily

    I found myself always prefer being alone

    or just with my boyfriend these days. I am very cautious and aware people's intentions. As long as I found out they have a purpose being with me, I lost interest in pursuing the friendship any further. I would like the freedom of being not attached to anyone or being anybody's...

    I Am Too Trusting
