Do you have a friend that you don’t trust?

I have a few friends that I don't really trust. Some of the things they say don't ring true, seem a little fabricated or time lines don't fit together, but I stay friends with them for one reason or another. They’re not super close friends, but they are people I spend time with. I hope I’m not the only one. :)

Not that i don't trust them but sometimes i am doubting of the friendship they are showing and giving to me that tends to not to tell them some of my secrets or personal things that i really want to tell. But even if it is like that i still make friends with them and spend some time with them.

I also have some friends that I don't really trust. I know them, and I knew they are not worth trusting, but I still maitain friendship with them. The reason is, you have to maintain friendship as much as possible in the society,you'll benefit from it. At same time, you have to tell the difference between your real friens and some friends just knowing without trust.

yes, I have some this kind of friends.and I think it is different we should treat this kind of friends. some friends are real friends, but some are not. so we should trust real friends always. but we should not give all our trust to others. we can keep a good relationship with them due to some reason,but we should remember they are not real friends and they might cheat us sometimes.

My my world 'friends' are called only those people I trust and I don't have many friends because I treasure and respect them at al costs. But, I have many acquintances that I don't fully trust, just like you but then, they are not bound by the 'friend bond' to always be truthful to me. I hope this makes sense :).

If I'm just suspicious of someone, I'll give them a chance, but keep an eye on them, and be careful as to what I'll trust them with. If they have proved themself to be untrustworthy, I won't consider them friends, and I'll stay away from them. If they just kind of make things up or exagerate, I'll put up with that, as long as it's not too bad.

hmm yeah, i do have a few friends which i can't trust. in the sense that i can't tell them anything personal, because once i tell one person about something, the rest of the world would know, when they should have kept it to themselves. .

I wouldn't call somebody a friend who I don't trust, it would be contradictory for me. I'd call him/her an acquaintance, maybe, and stay away from him/her.

yeah, I do.I don't trust her because she has a history of backstabbing. She took my words against me. But were still friends, its just that, I am more careful now with my words and with my actions.

I have several friends that I'm not real close with that I wouldn't trust with $5 of my own money. Pretty sad when we can't even trust our so called friends huh?
