we know,some people even some our friends or coworker or love ,they often say i trust you,but they don't trust you in heart.they use another way to look at you.to be honest,i did so before.sometimes,trust is just a excuse.but it is very important.relathion will break up if no trust. relation will be last if you say you trust him/her.how do you think of your trust?do you really say out from your heart?sharing your mind,thanks!

hi :) i think trust has it's own deeper meaning in each one of us and very important in ones character too.. i've researched for what trust really means LOL coz we- sometimes we trust someone because we just trust him/her without knowing that why we should trust them whether they are love ones or peopele round us... :) it says trust is a firm relaince of integrity, ability or character of a person or thing. since we're talkin bout person/people, we trust those people we love because we know that they are reliable and trust-worthy for everything. but in life we can't trust anyone we have our own attitudes and characteristics that sometimes people we trust- they backstab, betrayed us or whatever terms are that, they failed on having our trust, i myself became a victim of that we have our own experiences- i've learned my lesson that we can't trust anyone- we should left something pride for ourself- and above anything having trust to God (of course) and to ourself is the most important thing. and why there's a word "secret" LOL that at the end of the day- ourself we'll be the one who will be there aside from the people we love and trust most. just my two cents ;) happy myLotting!:) Godabless!0=)

There are a few people that i trust. There really aren't many, but there are a few that I know I can trust. I think that there are people, whom we can trust, and others that we can't trust. I may be wrong about this, but this is what I think.

the most reliable persons are our parents.I seldom trust others since others until I get to be very familiar with the person.When I'm quite sure of the person's character,I then trust that "friend". So a real friend is worthy of my trust besides my parents!

I easily trust people especially my friends. I just distrust them by the time I proved them to be not worthy of my trust. So far maybe just one or two disappointed me but overall everyone I trusted are trustworthy. Although it all depends with us on what to intrust to whom. We can assess the persons we trusted, for friends, we know them that long that's why they are easy to be trusted. We don't easily trust strangers, however.

hi there, i trust my husband. but sometimes when i feel something fishy, i dont think i trust him at that time, but most of the time i trust him. its just that sometimes i dont. especially when hes out with his friends, you can sense they have boy talks. though my husband right now is not able to join his friends since he is out of work (this is the bad side). when hes not out, hes inside the house which is worst coz he has no income. but when hes out, you just cant trust him so easily.

I do not trust people at all, I have no reason to. People will stab you in the back at every opportunity, at least that's my experience so far in life!

At this point of time., I trust very few people.There are some events in my life which has forced me in this situation. The friend whom I trusted most cheated on me big time. so i trust none.

I only believe myself! If my friends give me some good advices,I will consider it and believe it! Sometimes,we should consider for a little time about what other one said!

i don't actuallyo. before i do trust people easily. but now i have found out that most of my friends are not that honest . so i give some reservations on them. i don't just trust every thing on them. i don't share secrets that easily. cause sometimes they will say that they will just keep secret but they won't actually. they can't really fulfill their promises. and sometimes whatever is convenient for them that is what they will do only.

i do trust people a hundred percent. but my principle of expecting the unexpected gives me a plan of having some preplans to do if someone breaks my trust. it is really hard to open up trust for someone lied to you even once.

I generally trust people a lot, but I think I am a very god judge of character as well...I can always tell if someone is trying to pull the wool over my eyes. I would hope people can trust me, so I try to trust others as much as possible.

People in general? No. A few people I know? Yes. It's not that I keep secrets or keep my mouth shut alot because of it. I'm actually extremely honest, but I am quite...selective in what I say and how I say it. Sometimes, I'll use the truth in order to decieve someone if I find that they're probably conning me, trying to use me, or if they're trying to hurt me. Because all things about me "depend", several things could use clarification, and a great deal of things no one will ever know unless they ask. I find this works rather well in weeding out he bad apples and protects me as I go through the process of finding people I can trust. I will always get hurt, I accept that. Nothing I can do will prevent every instance where it could happen. I just minimalize what risks I can, since I'm very big on taking the hard and chancy choices...in life, with people, and in general.

I don't give my trust to people around me so easily, yes, there's some of my friends whom i trust but but my kind of trust for them have some limits depends on how they show me that she also trust me in some area or matters. I have only one person in me that i really trust in mind and in my heart,she my elder sister. I can share all things, particularly when it comes money and my kids. She is so loving, kind especially to her family and relatives. She is so resourceful even she only earned a few units in college. I have a high trust and respect on her.

Well cindyhxf, I do not trust everyone, however I do trust and depend on a lot of my close friends and family members. I guess trust is not something you can just place it takes time to build. I would not tell a person I trust him/her when I do not. I would just tell them what is the expectation. And it shows if I trust the person or not, whether I keep checking up on that person when he/she is doing his/her work. I only trust those people that I trust them, and I just do not or seldom talk to those I do not trust.

I can't just trust someone completely without them earning it. I'm not going to constantly accuse them of being dishonest but I just can't feel trust for them just like that. I put my complete trust in someone before and that lead no where.

To be honest with you, I dont fully trust people, because some person are great pretender, and one can never see their heart, The only thing we can do is to trust God to direct us and lead us to true and trustworthy person. We alone in choosing true friends will make bad judgement. A lot of times who we think is our friend is our enemy, and who we classified as our enemy is not. As the Bible say put no comfident in man. The only one we can totally trust and confident is God, so we have to be on our guard at all times, because we look on the outside of a person and make the judgement, but we cannot see the person heart, But I think by the person life style we will be able to make the judgement. Before we choose a friend ask close relative, friends, associate, and people who know about that person, and then we can make up our mind.

I used to be able to trust most people, but I don't think that's possible any more. Now I pretty much stick to trusting my family, and even some of those are iffy. It's too bad that society has degenerated into this trustless mode.

Yes, I agree with you Cindy. Some people if they said I trust you they really not meant it just because they scared to get hurt. For me, if i can say i trust you i totally trust and it came from my heart but i do remind him/her if you broke my trust sometimes its really hard to fixed it.
