Hi guys!.. Do you trust easily? Like for example people you just meet or people you never meet but been chatting for a while? I don't know what's wrong with me but I can easily trust a person even if I just meet. Maybe I'm to friendly or something.. But next year. I will be more cautious. Even friends are hard to trust if we talk about money..More any strangers that we meet.

I seem to have a decent 6th sense when it comes to trusting people if they seem genuine or not. If they appear genuine i trust them fairly easy and seem to open up a bit. If they dont seem reliable or genuine i dont trust them, but doesnt mean i cant speak to them.

How about me? lolz.. Me I believe only time can tell.. Because that the irony of trust.. Sometimes the person you trust most will betray you. And you found out later that the person you don't give your attention will stand with you to the end.

Bulastika, it is different with people you meet online, you cannot in the same way sense if the person is genuine. Here at MyLot im open minded for all sort of discussions with all types of people, and i doubt all are equal genuine...

Yeah..Your right.. But me I have different view.. I can and do make white lies to my friends. But online..Only my age I think.. To me its easy to be true to myself online because I don't give a damn if people online judge me. Because I don't know them personally..Gets me? But in real friends..I'm conscious to all of my actions and words. Because I don't want to offend or mark a bad impression.. But online..Who cares? So in nice to be me online..

Unfortunately, yes. I trust easily. Maybe because I want to give the person the benefit of the doubt? How can you have real friends if you don't start with trusting them. As time goes by, you will eventually realize that the person is not worth your friendship, then, maybe you can start disattaching from him little by little. But it is always worth a try. You gain some, you lose some.

I think I loss all..lolz... Its hard to think about it. Money comes money goes.. If you have lots of money you have lots of friends.. If you don't have money..You don't have a friend. Your more like a liabilities.

They say money don't grow on trees. Sometimes, people don't realize that it's hard to earn money. So they try to put one over you. But, they also say, that it's just money, and you can always earn it again. Yes, I know, easily said than done. But, you'll have to stop pitying yourself for losing money through fake friends. Just try to be wiser next time. And let it be a lesson learned. Move on. There are more REAL friends out there, than those who try to fool you. Smile!

Hi bula! I trust some of the persons easily, with who I have any indirect connection. It is told to us since childhood that we should not trust strangers, however, sometimes we are forced to led by our emotions and we blindly trust a person. I think we should follow our 'mind' and be cautious before trusting anyone.

If I can make the person laugh like crazy online and in person, then we can be friends. According to my friends I have a good sense of humor even though I can not sense it.lol. Making a person comfortable with your company and vice versa is the beginning of trust. But it is a long way ahead. Trust is earned. Although I am not sure what I am typing because I am sleepy.lol. I can easily make friends and trust but not to the max!

I think that what we call bonding..lolz. Trust is your protection. Your sense of security.. Like having a bodyguard. You will never be safe unless you trust your bodyguard. But making your bodyguard laugh is for bonding..lolz I'm sleepy to.. I don't have a good sleep.

I admit that I trust people easily even if I've only known them for a short time. It is because of this why a lot of people have taken advantage of me. It is also because of this reason that I must change this attitude. Not that I don't want to trust anyone anymore but I must learn to be a better judge of character. Just like you, I have to be more cautious. But one thing i like with my new friends on the internet is that almost everyone wants to share how to earn with the others. It is a good start and I just hope people here are genuine.

I also have this inherent weakness of trusting everybody.My belief in my fellow human being is so great that I generally cannot mistrust anybody.But life has taught me a lesson or two and now I am much more cautious in placing my trust in everyone.
