Trust Issues

Due to my past experiences, I have issues with trust and/or believing in people. I have been scammed so many times it makes me feel like an idiot.

How can you meet new people if you trust no one?? I am not a good faker or emotion, so putting on a game face just doesn't work for me. I suppose a good way is to be in a moral environment, but even then there are frauds. How can you tell who is real and who is playing "the game"?

I used to trust people until they proved me wrong, but that just isn't possible anymore. I try to take people at face value and let them earn my trust but then I feel like I am not being honest and upfront with them so why should they be that way with me.

I am thankful for the handful of friends I do have and they are very precious to me, but it is not easy living day to day with this fear.

That's what it is--it's fear. Is there a way to get past this???

Unfortunatly, a game face is a necessity. Just relax and don't worry about it so much. Talk to people in a fun, casual way. Don't let them in too quickly. You don't have to share everything all at once. After a bit, you'll know if you can trust them to tell them more, then open up just a little.

And...don't kiss on a first date! LOL
