The other day during staff meal where I work, I was sitting with some co-workers. One co-worker in particular was ranting about somebody he'd been seeing, and speaking quite vulgarly about her because she went to Greece with her boyfriend (mind you, she was cheating on her boyfriend with my co-worker).

Not only did I make some obvious points to my co-worker (or not so obvious depending on the person), but I had told him that it might be best for him to destroy his interest in people, or at least his romantic interest, A fellow co-worker chimed in and agreed with me. We proceeded to tell him that he should stop seeking out romance with people, and just let it happen whenever it happens, because if people are interested in you they'll come to you, and not to force yourself into anybody else's life.

tl;dr - a co-worker told me my view on people is too jaded for my age. Do you guys consider yourself jaded or cynical when it comes to people?

Note - my co-worker who goes on these rants is 37, I'm 22. Go figure.
sometimes i feel both.there are lots of bad things that has happened to me over the course of my life that has made me lose faith in people

The problem with a girl who is willing to cheat on her boyfriend to be with someone is the fact that she is more likely to cheat later.

I do find myself more cynical of late but it is because experience has taught me that there are bad people in the world. That being said I do believe there are Good people in this world and i do hope that one day they will outshine the corrupt.

Most likely cynical, growing up around people who are jaded brought it out.

I've learned that all people are primarily self interested. Not saying they won't act in kindness to others, but that often they act in ways that makes them feel good, or gets them what they want, and they'll believe or rationalize why getting what they want is morally superior and logically sound. I'm on the fence as to whether this is good or bad, or perhaps moreso, I find it rather neutral. All in all though, I'm just really disappointed by how much people try to escape reality. In some ways though, I guess I'm optimistic, because I really do wish for a better world and want to try and make a better world a reality, but, I think the first step is accepting what is in fact, real, and what is, in fact, the essence of our motivations, drives, etc. Calling a spade a spade if you will.
