    Do ever look at someone

    and think "you're the reason I don't trust", because they screwed you over so many times?

    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.

    Is everyone perfect or not?

    I have NEVER met a person who confess their faults up front. I believe this is why the world is in this terrible condition today. A woman can meet a man she never seen before he could be a murderer or a horrible person. Some do not even try to cover up their issue the act like a...

    I honestly don't really expect a response to

    I really wish this wasn't an issue

    for me! I used to be so naive- when people would tell me about hard times in their lives- I would be so thankful that I was so blessed and didn't have many issues- then things fell apart. And instead of turning to those that cared for me- I basically ran from them. I was burned...

    Dont trust a man that calls you beautiful

    when everything is fine and dandy but ugly when he's mad at you. It means he's projecting his ugliness onto you.

    I've had friends in the past

    that I've told secrets once before and by the next day, it's the talk of the school so ever since I started college, I've tried not to make any social circles.

    this should not be a surprise

    because how the world is now. You cannot trust anyone really. It all depends on what you are trusting them for. As far as my experiences most really want step to the plate. Yet I always have to give to others. I cannot count on anyone when I really need them people like to take...

    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...

    I never understood the magnitude of the impact

    cheating would have on me. It's been years and I'm not even with the cheater any more, but somehow, when I meet someone, I am guarded and the worst case scenario is always in the forefront of my brain. Just preparing myself for a let down that may never even happen. I guess I...

    I have been lied to and let down by many people,

    so to trust, is to be hurt. Do I think everyone is untrustworthy? No! However, I do believe that some of us either attract or inadvertently let people into our lives who aren't trustworthy. Maybe the "bad boy" or "wild woman" types? Maybe in this society where it's all about "ME...

    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

    I am trying to trust someone.

    It's extremely difficult. I play out all the scenarios in my head of ways he could be lying to me. It's put me into a ball of anxiety. I realize this is the nature of trust.... To not necessarily know but to believe... I have to silence the crazy girl in my head that is driving...

    my trust issues aren't just paranoia,

    my trust issues are because so many people have proven time and time again that they can't be trusted.

    I'm huge on trust. If I no longer trust you

    or you give me the slightest reason not to trust you, you're pretty much dead to me. It'll be hard to gain my friendship, trust and loyalty again. By then, I'm completely turned off. I'm a Taurus so know when I'm loyal, I'm loyal. When I'm not, good luck.

    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.

    I am tired of being alone.

    The last 2 guys I was with really hurt my faith and trust in others. One traded me in for someone younger and prettier. The other said so many lies and hurt me financially. I want to over on with someone new but I always get scared and cancel plans to do so.

    Specially while chatting,
