    Saying i have "trust issues",

    is probably a massive understatement. Because while i do in fact find it hard to trust people on the most basic level, it goes much deeper than that. I was always quite a shy and reserved person, but someone who often welcomed people with open arms, and an open heart. That...

    When you lose my trust.

    ..I dont think that I could trust you again. I'm really guarded with my feelings and I surely trust my gut/instinct.

    I can never believe you again.

    Ever. You have lied about everything. We were supposed to be married. We were supposed to work together and have each other's backs. Instead, you decided to cheat and lie. To only look out for yourself. Yes, I made the mistake of thinking that you were going to change. That you...

    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.

    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.

    who was pretending to be my friend, and sexually abused by my own brother. I have extreme trust issues because of this, and I'm scared of getting close to people.

    Its hard to trust someone,

    especially when the ones you trusted the most were the ones that betrayed you.

    I thought I was with this girl.

    She said she was going on a religious retreat for a few days. I don't know what to think. Who starts a retreat in the middle of the week? Why wait til the last minute to tell me? I'm trying really hard to trust her but its killing me right now.

    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

    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.

    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...

    But who doesn't right?

    I don't like it because I want to be able to trust someone, especially my boyfriend, but you never who's really honest these days and its so sad because without trust there can't be a relationship, not in lovers, not in friends, and not in families.

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

    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...
