    Do you trust people, find it easy/hard?

    Do you think you have to learn to trust somebody or can just trust anybody from the off?

    I really have to get to know the person and learn to trust them because if you trust them from the start then really, they could just abuse your whole relationship.

    Definately takes time to build up trust. It takes me along time to trust someone.

    I trust everyone until they prove they are not trust worthy.

    I always see the good in people and until they prove otherwise refuse to see the bad, I've never been badly hurt by doing this. In fact I think because I put so much trust in people they behave better towards me.

    Depends how you mean to trust.
    If you are going to open up your soul to someone then it would take me a great deal of time.
    I trust very few people, I have no reason to be like this, it is just in my nature.
    Is there someone that you are starting to feel you can trust?

    I used to trust people really easily.
    But over the past few years, I've learnt to keep a lot of things to myself, even my so called friends started telling others what I was saying, so now I just don't bother.

  9. It takes time for me to actually trust someone, I find it hard.

    I've been screwed over alot, as I'm sure many here have. It's hard to know who are genuine and who aren't.

    See there's people I'll tell things, but I make sure its things that wouldn't destroy me if they got out...LOL!

    There's a minute chance me and my ex might give it another go but I have trust issues and that's what damaged our relationship in the first place. I want to trust, but its just kind of hard to fully convince myself whether I have reason not to trust or not..!

    I have been let down a lot and I trust most people to an extent, but that extent doesn't tend to get passed easily.

    I used to have serious trust issues, due to being messed around so much in the past. Until recently, pretty much every time I began to let my guard down I would get messed around again!
    I still don't make friends to easy but I completely trust my oh and the people close to me. I am very catious meeting new people and especially people on line.. Although ot on here I mean like emailing from like ad sites (for pets etc!) and freecycle etc.

    I find it hard to trust anyone - HOWEVER - I find it easier to say things to people online who I will probably never meet in my life than my friends or family!
