Is it easy for you to trust new friends?

I don't trust people easily. I'm always doubtful. But when a situation gives me a sudden connection with another, then I trust that person fully. I trust new friends because they wouldn't be my friends in the first place if I don't trust them. And when the trust is violated, I find it hard to trust that person again. I'm open to giving second chances, but there is always that nagging feeling.

I do trust new friends after sometimes of company, especially when I feel they trust me too.It is but normal to withhold ones trust first during a new encounter as a usual reaction from a rational being. Trust in a friendship surely fills in the gap no matter how it evolve it will remain to be a reminder that still trust creates a good relationship.Keep trusting and be trusted always.

Yes, I agree. It should work both ways: keep trusting and be trustworthy always.

I've always thought of myself as a good judge of character. Two seconds after somebody I don't know starts talking, I could make up my mind if he or she is trustworthy. Unless of course, he or she is a con artist and that she is very cunning in masking real objectives for friendship.

Sometimes I also feel that way with people. But not with guys, I'm not that much of a good judge of character. I admire how you can immediately tell if a person is trustworthy or not. It takes a while for me to trust people.

At the begining i can trust new friends. I like to offer more help to new frineds. But they can not cheat me. If i know it i can not trust it easily again.
