I can not trust easily on a person whom I never met in my life and going to meet first time. There are many persons whom you met online and they always hide their identity to you and talked to you behalf of any other person. So I can’t believe very easily on those types of person.

It depends on what to be entrusted to him. You should meet him first before trusting fully.

If it was me i would be abit wary still, you could be nice and friendly but probably not trust him as much as the friends you have known for longer and trust more. He could be very trustworthy, but he could not. You don't know until you get to know him abit better. I have friends who their friends are also nice and friendly, but as i don't know them very much i don't really trust them as much.

Well, in my own opinion, you need not to forcedly give your trust to someone. Trust will naturally form as you go on knowing that person. Basically, an individually can't trust a person unless s/he knows him/her, not unless that individual is somewhat is brained-damaged. As you go on mingling to that person, it is either s/he will gain your trust or s/he will prove himself/herself unworthy. Just open your eyes! You will feel it and know it if that person deserves to be trusted. Just don't be brained-damaged. Proverbs 3: 5-6 says "Trust in the LORD with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding, and He shall direct your path straight." Trust God, and know Him better everyday! God bless ^^,

myLotter. when we discuss about freindship, it has to be on mutual understanding and trust. when one trust a new person, who is reliable, it become freindship, if one trust spirit, it become spiritual freindship. so it is good to have trust in any one provided he/she is reliable in his /her transaction. it is upto the person own interest have truest person or not.

Trust can't be given, it should be earned. Regardless how many times we say that we trust a person, it will only boil down when a circumstance comes into your life when you need to trust the person - you will know in that situation if you really trust him or if it's only words. Don't be in too much hurry to trust someone. Trust your gut-feel and senses.

it took times to know someone...whoever the person is, never put 100% trust to him/her..maybe you can meet him but be cautious..this is just an advise. In my experience, i've known a guy before through a friend..never meet for almost half year..once we met, things happend upside down..we lost contact since our first meeting..i think it was a 'hate at the first sight'...things like this are rare but it happend..

I guess, almost a year is enough for you to have built a trust in a person. It depends on how you feel toward him to trust him fully. If you like him already then you could probably trust him already too. But that depends on what aspect should you trust him for.

well.. you can trust the person.. give the person a chance.. but it would be better if you don't give your full trust in him.. trust him but save something for yourself.. don't be overconfident on him.. and don't be too suspicious too.. just give him enough trust.. that would be alright.. =)

Good Day! I don't gave my full trust to someone I haven't met yet. I'm just being careful because I don't want to be in a situation I don;t like.

hello!bevs :) trusting someone is not that easy coz we don't know who good or bad he/she is but giving him your trust will be will be risky it doesn't depends on how long you know each other or how many mutual friends you have, trust him but make sure you can put a barrier on it and put your limitations on :)

I have a hard time trusting people that I do know let alone trust someone that I have not met yet. Sometimes you can get to know someone by chatting with them online all the time but even then its like when you meet them in person they could really be totally different. I guess you see I have trust issues lol.

That depends on the persons personality. Some people could easily gain your trust while others could always play as a simple friend.

it would depend on what is to be shared or trusted with this guy. if i haven't met someone in person yet, i wouldn't trust him/her with anything yet. i could talk to that person on a friendly level, but i wouldn't divulge my heart and soul unless i know i already know him completely and i know his/her intentions. trust should be earned well. good luck with your new friend though.

when we are not able to believe the people whom we see how can we believe the people whom we haven't met

i dont think you should trust him, maybe give it some time to get to know him better. some of our friends would even betray or back bite us despite all the years and things you have been through together, how much more people we just met for a month or more.
