    I have had the problem of trusting too quickly.

    Giving my all in a situation where the person didn't give half of their all. I have been dumb at times believing that someone descent actually liked me for me & not just my assets. One day...maybe one I will find true love as well as true friendship.

    I Like to Trust People - Find ...

    I like to trust people - find it really difficult working out just if and what people have as their agenda, and it frustrates me to try and penetrate their deceits... If I am once taken in, though, I find it hard to trust them again.

    And it always backfires.

    There's always that one person that gets me to let my guard down and they are always the ones who prove that I'm an idiot for doing it. What the hell is wrong with me...

    I sometimes wonder which is worse?

    Trusting too easily and being burned or not trusting and being alone/lonely?

    Just a Fool

    I give my all too quickly, and men take total advantage of me, they only want me when they can't be with who they want at the time.  This person I have been friends with for eight years.  He came to me and I brushed him off, he persisted and I gave in, we had a...

    Lesson Learned

    Ok, totally got scammed by some ******* company. Used to trust everybody, gave everybody the benefit of the doubt. Lesson learned though. People have motives and most of them aren't pure or good. I might have been stupid and naive but I was also taken advantage of. I would...

    On a day to day basis, this usually isn't a problem. Its just that when I meet somebody and I find them.. interesting.. I tend to share things that most people would keep hidden for awhile longer before bestowing them upon their possible friend lol. But on a rare occasion...

    TOO Many Times

    I try and live by a simple rule...believe people until proven wrong.  I guess that's why I have become so cynical in my old age.  Too many times too many people too much hurt

    My life-pattern seems to be one of having

    intense flings with people, who are completely interested at the beginning, and then rather quickly lose interest. I'm always left heart-broken; I'm always willing to explore it in the long-run when they're not. It's not good for self-esteem, trust or happiness, and I want to...

    I'm pretty optimistic

    when it comes to my opinions of people,and I like to see the good in everybody. I tend to expect everyone to be honest, good and keep promises, but realistically (and what should be obvious,) that isn't the case.

    I feel I trust people too much.

    I've been used and lied to so much but I never learn. Maybe I have faith in people's humanity? Maybe I'm a dumba$$?

    I have a habit of letting people break down my

    walls too quickly, I get too sucked in to people and forget to look out for the warning signals until it's too late but by then I am in too deep. I believe their every lie because I trust them not to lie to me. I have so much hope in people only to be let down right at the last...

    Trusting people too quickly is one big problem and flaw that I have.  I trusted too many people and got hurt, even by people I would never expect harm from and got hurt...I got hurt so many times and I do not trust anymore except for a few.  I guess when it happens many...

    Oh Well ...

    I'd rather trust people too quickly than be suspicious.  Liars always give themselves away quickly.  While I prefer to give them an opportunity to, it's up to them ...  A lot of trust is broken around the world everyday ...  oh well  ...

    I Should Not Really

    I am such an idiot when it comes for matters like this, I always trust people and so I always get it in the end!  Then I say I will never do and yet I always do.

    I trust people I've never met before.

    I give everyone the benefit of the doubt. The only exception is when people have violated my trust previously. If you've ever lied to me or took advantage of my trust, you'll have a nearly impossible time winning my trust back.
