    No Ones Fault

    I actually believe that it was no ones fault in particular to why I have such serious trust issues with men... and its not to far off to say I have no trust for anyone anymore. Many experiences throughout my life that have unfolded to this basic underlying theme. Everyone lies...

    Keeping Them At a Distance.

    I'm almost 21 years old, a heterosexual female, and I have never had a boyfriend. Perhaps you can count the 1 week (at the most, I think it was actually shorter) "relationship" I had at 14 a boyfriend, but other than that there have been none. To start, self...

    Since, I have had many bad experiences, unfortunately I have trust issues with men.  I don't want to and this is how I feel.  I'm not saying, all men are bad (not at all and no offense), but deep inside, I feel insecure.  Sorry!!!

    Getting Better

    I've begun to trust them more, but I still have issues. It's something that just came on in my mid teens that meant I began to struggle with the people around me. Maybe one I'll be trust issues free.

    Lack of Trust Is Exausting!!!!!

    I want a trusting relationship, I really do. But, thanks to my mother, (may God rest her soul) I learned at an early age not to trust and how to lie. I know that now I am a big girl and all grown up now. I have since realized the painstaking effort that it takes to lie. So, I...

    Most Believe

    Clearly it is known that most people believe in love, and that one should not run from it. Ok I value and respect the opinion of others, but somehow I don't think they fully understand why we run from love. Simply put I never had a positive male in my life growing up. My life has...

    I Distrust Most Men

    Ever since I was a small child I have distrusted men. Strangely enough I mostly distrust men that are 35 or older. If I'm alone with them I look down and my stomach tightens up. My breathing gets quicker and I get scared. I still haven't figured out why I distrust a certain age...

    Men always just want something from me. They disgust me and make me feel uneasy. I try to avoid them at all costs.
