    I have a lot of trust issues

    because I was abused in my early life. I was adopted and not all adoption agencies nor foster parents are great and meet the needs of the child. As I said, I had been abused as a child, so I do not trust a lot of people; male and female. You have to earn my trust with respect...

    You don't really have a crush on me,

    you're pranking me. You don't really wanna be my friend, you're trying to set me up for humiliation or betrayal. You don't really care, you're just nosey. Everyone is against me.

    Trusting guys is such a hard task

    for me due to the betrayals I have experienced in my life by men, especially family members. I worry I would never be comfortable with someone due to the fear of being hurt mentally, physically and sexually. I always think guys have bitter intentions.

    Everybody Lies

    That's my philosophy in life taken from the great show House. Basically because of a family member badly breaking my trust I have trust issues and so always go with this philosophy because it's so true about everyone. Trust can take forever to build but seconds to destroy

    and once again I know why.

    You took one month and 5 days to build up trust , to paint a picture of a future, to make me fall for you . To make me feel involved in your life. Then came 'the problem' you needed help with... You weren't to know I have a very logical mind .. that your story didn't add up...

    I have such a hard time believing guys actually

    want something serious with me. I always think that everything they're doing such as sweet talking & spoiling me is to only get in my pants & leave.

    When you try to be nice to people

    but some of them just end up turning around and stab you in the back. Happens far too often. Luckily I still have a few friends who I can actually trust but the others were just two faced.

    Anyone who joins the group "I believe Internet

    friends are real" is a ******* moron. I don't go online to make friends, which is why I feel comfortable calling people morons. I go online to ask questions and vent my feelings, and it's helped a lot so far.

    Early last year (January

    and February) I learned of an event that shocked me to my core. Possibly because I have lived my life mostly believing the best in "most people". You know what I mean by "most". We all know abstractly that there are people that do evil things but it isn't until they touch us...

    People brag about having trust issues

    but that's how I can tell who does or does not have them because those of us who really have trust issues are at war with it. We don't like it. It's not easy wanting to have people around and have people accept you but you can't because this part of you just will not let you go...

    I have serious trust issues.

    Once someone lies to me I literally never recover. I feel like I'm always being lied to. Especially in relationships. I hate it because I feel like I can never find happiness and love because I will never find trust. What's even crazier is I get a gut feeling that's is virtually...

    Never tell your problems to anyone.

    20% don't care and the other 80% are glad you have them.

    because no matter how close I get to someone I can't trust them. I think way before we go our separate ways and I think that if I tell them my secrets that afterwards they'll use my weaknesses and every out of the ordinary thing I've done against me and I'll be some weird...
