    Trusting People

    Do you have a hard time trusting or what are your views on trusting people? Whether it be online or offline, how do you deal with trust issues?

    I have a really hard time trusting people. However, there are a few who I felt instantly i could trust and I have found that my gut feelings so far have been correct. Even my ex boyfriend I trust still, and I didn't get treated right by him there for a bit.. I use my gut feelings and if something is off when I first start talking to you, you will find yourself a part of the crowd of people I can't completely allow close.. and that is a huge list.. very few people get really close to me

    I'm a weird mix, I suppose. On the one hand, I'm instinctually distrusting -- I've had a fair share of moments where placing my trust in someone went horribly awry, which I'd rather not repeat. When I became a mother, I became more discerning. On the other hand, I give the benefit of the doubt and find myself trusting (maybe not trusting so much as just believing that a person's changed and deserves a chance to prove that) at times when I know I shouldn't. My gut instinct has steered me wrong on many occasions -- on both ends of the spectrum -- so I'd think I would've become much more hardened to the fact there are people who deliberately mislead and more aware of those who are just misrepresented. I missed the learning curve with this, so I try to view each individual or situation with a certain amount of wary trust -- kinda middle of the road, as I tend to be with much of what I do.

    I tend to trust people probaby more than I should online and off line. I have found some very good friends that I trust and are very close to me. And I have found a sweet heart of a guy who I adore and cherish very much.

    Re: Trusting People

    I trust people and its caused alot of pain and heartache over the years. I tend to keep to myself more lately because I'm afraid of being back stabbed or lied to by people who I truly care about. At the same time...I try to trust until its betrayed and that's a very rough thing to do but I soo try not to put everyone in the same category because there truly are honest and trusting people in this world!

    I'm honest, and typically trust those I deal with are the same. My words to others are always what I feel, not trying to evoke or elicit something I can use for myself, and believe the same of others. I also believe the best of others, and would rather be hurt than to hurt someone I care about. All of these qualities have led me to be hurt, and hurt terribly in the past. The reason I share all of this is to point out the fact that I've learned to be cautious. I've learned all are not to be trusted, however, I'd rather live with an open hand, rather than a closed fist. I'd rather have my hand slapped, be taken advantage of, or even used, rather than live a life closed to possibilities. So, always expect the best of me, always expect an attitude of expectancy, rather than one of guardedness, or suspicion. I live to make my world brighter, even if it hurts me personally, at least someone is better in the long run.

    my ex boyfriend and i were talking today and he suddenly said to me.. "you know I just realized, I still don't trust you."

    he is talking about the fact that his soon to be ex wife and I chatted this spring.. she gave me information on him that I never knew.. things he never thought to tell me.. and I encouraged her to move on.. anyhow.. I never lied to him, I always told him when she and I had a conversation.. but he doesn't trust that I am no longer talking to her..

    I told him.. "you know, I have never lied to you about anything. When she and I talked, you knew about it. Why you don't trust me is something you have to get over. I have never given you a reason to not trust me."... he agreed, but he still doesn't trust me..

    now I am not totally innocent.. I learned some things that really hurt me.. and I did something that is completely unlike me.. but I never lied about it and I told him everything.. however, I do get why he doesn't trust me.. and I think some of it is also a bit of his guilt for how he just walked away from me without talking about what was going on. And how he returned into my life.

    once you lose that trust, it's very hard to get it back.. if you ever do get it back.. some people are more forgiving than others, some have been wounded so deeply that they can never trust you again, and some, just can't trust anyone anymore..
