I really can't understand how some people can prey on the lonliness of others. Someone is honest and pours their heart out, craving human companionship and understanding...but instead is met with someone attempting to take advantage of them.

What kind of human scum would do such a thing?

You are right scum would do it. Some people like to cast others in a bad light to mask their own darkness. Actually it is really hard to find a trusted friend, because it seems there are a lot of people out there who will do this, unfortunately.

Some people view the world as win-lose... that type of thinking is even engrained in certain formal education courses.... so they view harming others as helping themselves. It took me years to accept that people can actually think that way, because I was a naturally creative, loving person who just tried to add to the world's greatness, but not everyone has learnt the "right lessons" or right thinking yet... in any case, don't focus on that, focus on people who can see win-win situations and the abundance of the world.
