Can your friends really trust you?

I ask this because of an experience I had today. Long story short a friend got put in jail. So she called her Mom to wire the money but did not feel as if she could trust her boyfriend of over 5 years to pick it up, so she had her Mom wire me the money. And I thought she really trusts me. It made me feel good. I mean she has only known me about a year. And when I got her out of jail she said that I was the only one she would have trusted to do this. So, that is why I ask Can your friends really trust you?

I think it is depend on what we have gone through before. Sometimes we cannot get friends trust us so easily. It depend on how you bring yourself that make him/she trust you. I have a friend that really trust me and she even share her secret with me. The only thing that make our friend trust us is don't betray them.

I would say yes. I currently have one of my friend's walmart credit cards so she won't charge up what she has already paid on it. She told me not to give it back to her until she pays it all off. I said no problem. I stuck it up somewhere in the house (yes I know where I hid it but no one else in my house does) and told her since you told me to keep it you won't get it back until it's paid. One of her other friends asked her if she could actually trust me and she told them yes because we have known each other for so long and she knows that I would never do that to her.

Yes. She was making a big decision in her life and I was the only one she trusted. She was afraid to confide to the who was overseeing her. It turned out when she finaly made the decision (my friend told her that I was the only knowing her decision) I was blamed of not telling to her overseer everything that she told me beforehand because this overseer did not approve her decision.

I think your friend trust you because you are worth trusted.The troubling thing is why does she still have a ralationship with her boyfriend if she doesn't trust him?That's weird.

Did you ever play the game Scruples? You are given different scenarios and each player has to guess what a certain player would do in any given situation. My friends always picked the answer that was basiclly about doing the right thing and being trustworthy as far as I was concerned. Yes, my friends do trust me wholeheartedly and I have never done anything to prove them wrong! PEACE

I would say yes. I am always there with an ear to listen with, I give suggestions when they ask for it, I help them out when they need it. I mean I am basically a second mom to some of my daughter's friends. lol They tell me stuff they wouldn't tell their own moms, and that makes me feel good. I am like a friend to my daughter's friends and they know they can trust me and I will suggest what to do in certain situations. I'm the cool mom! :)

i would like to believe so that my friends can really trust me with their lives. i have never( at least to my knowledge ) betrayed, or tried to betray a friend. there are some instances too that my friends, through their actions have proven me that they trust me and it makes me feel good and have decided to never fail them in any possible way.

Yes my friend is trust me. We are sharing secrets and we talk everything about work,love,family foods etc. Friend is very important and not easy to find a real one. I must appreciate that to have friend like her. When we meet a real friend we should trust each other.

I can say with absolute confidence that my friends trust me. I say that because I know myself very well, I will go out of my way to build trust and positive relationships with those I know I myself can trust, and as a result I have many very trusted friends with whom I share a wonderful and cordial relationship. My closest friends will seek my counsel and advice, they don't mind sharing somewhat confidential information sometimes, and when I was involved in some of the internet schemes, they even confided their IDs and passwords in me. I feel honored to be in such relationships, because these cannot be purchased. Rather the trust has to be earned. It takes two hands to clap, as the saying goes, and so it is necessary also that I return that trust by not betraying them or sabotaging them in any way. A relationship built on this kind of trust can grow very deep and last a lifetime.

Yes I have a few close friends that I know can really trust me. As I also trust them and we have known each other for years and will always be there for one another. It is good that after a year of friendship that your friend trusted you the most.

I would say yes, my friends can trust me. Most of my friends actually call me up, not only when they want to talk about unimportant stuff, but when they are feeling down or in need of help with some of their personal decisions, they tend to trust that I can help them out.

I would say YES, because I consider my friends as my family. Friends are very precious to me so I try my best to keep the friendship. I think you are a great friend that's why your friend trusted you more than her bf.

Dear SusanShayAvon, I guarantee that my friends could trust me as long as they do not cheat me if that cheating is done with certain justifiable clarification. Anyhow I will be trusty worthy to my friends and also depends that it may not hurt them and for the well being them also. But the incident as shown by you is that you really felt good if friends trusted you. So is with me too.

yes it is...i really trust my friend even my accounts on the bank he knows and also he trust me too. we are like a brothers with the same blood...but doing this you should be careful in choosing your friends to be trusted because some friend are not meant to be your friend, they are on your side in good times but in bad times they leave.

Yes they trust me. In a long year of friendship we all tested and trusted each other. There are times that we argue in something but we settle it out.

Me and my sisters - My sisters are my friends roo.
Hi there! Well, I can say that my friends can definitely trust me. Sometimes, they trust me too much with their secrets that makes me uncomfortable just knowing about them. But I love helping my friends and I do as much as I can as long as I don't cause harm to others.
