    I do wish I had several close friends but you cannot trust people nowadays. People are not honest or loyal. Finding a true friend is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

    We don't trust people not because we have second thoughts about the person. It's because they haven't showed or did something convincing enough to trust them.
