Yeah we meet a lot of people here and there. Some meetings are short and only once forour life such as people at the conters, shops etc. We meet them , say hello, complete our work, bye bye and then forget. But till the time we are in contact with them we either believe them or not depending upon their behaviour. Sometimes due to their behaviour we are Then we meet people more than few times. We remember them for more amount of time. Then wehther we believe them or not depends alot on their behaviour. Then we make new friends because we can trust them and remember them all our life long.

No thats also a good poin. Our own attitude also makes a difference. Sometimes whether ow good the person is we dont want to believe him/her or maybe that person is not good enough not trust worhty enough but we still believe him/her. Sometimes the circumstances makes us believe him/her.

i guess the trick would be to just be friendly but not trusting.. it wouldn't hurt to get to know someone wouldn't it??but i think giving your full trust is a different thing..

For me it is a case of having a select few very special people in my life that I trust implicitely and there is probably nothing at all that they don't know about me. However those people I meet casually, I am polite to them but would not tell them anything that was private and that is because my attitude is that I do not know this person so how do I know I can trust them. Personally I place people (non-family) in 3 separate categories. They are special friends and these people know me extremely well and most of them are long standing friendships. Other friends, with whom I get along with but would not tell them everything about my life. The third category is simply acquaintences and these are the people that I would meet socially but they are not an actual part of my day to day life. It is not that I do not trust them but simply that the "special feeling" is not there and out lives are so completely different. I will say however that if any of them visit me at my home then they are treated with equality, except that special friends treat it like their own home, just as I treat their homes as mine. I do not think that we can ever have too many friends but of all the friends we do have, in most cases we do not have the same bond with all of them.

Considering I just started a new job ..I can say, that I try to give everyone a fair chance. For the most part, I believe that 99% of the people that we meet are nice honest people taht are very trustworthy. It is that 100% that I need to work on spotting.

No, I am by nature a very private person. I don't easily shared my stories to everyone. To this day, I have maintain a chosen few. These are the people that I can completely look after. For the friends in College and at work place, I only deal with them casually.

I do most of the time, and sometimes I get let down, but not often. I think people are generally trustable. (is that a word?)

When I see new people, I will not have anything to do with them that needs trust and confidence. I have to get to know them before entrusting any responsibility to them.

Its hard to trust people at the first meeting. Even those people you already know sometimes break your trust. So i guess you can only trust yourself, though you still be nice to them, socialize and trust your instinct whom you can trust.

I'm a bit weary/cautious at first when meeting new people in different places. It really depends on where i meet them. If it's at work, I find it a little easier to talk to coworkers and open up a little bit; if it's at a chatsite, I am very cautious and only make polite talk. It also depends on how well they receive me when they first meet me. If i get a nice bright smiling hello and a bubbly greeting, then i tend to think this person is ok to talk to, if they give me a snobbish type response or a bit of attitude, then i tend to shy away and not really bother with them.
