Post Reply To what extent can you trust your friends?

Never trust anyone. Good way to avoid disappointments.

I trust the people around me for different reasons but I only really trust myself for what I consider to be important. Happiness in its most broadest sense should be generated internally. It's a low risk option.

I trust my friends with almost everything. My definition of friend is pretty narrow, so there's only a small handful of people who know how messed up I am. I once made a mistake of telling someone who I thought was my friend something I thought most would assume to be, you know, not told to other people. It ended up spreading like wildfire among the masses... Slight exaggeration, but it shows that most people don't give a shit about how you feel.

We trust each other with secrets. If I could rate it 1-10 then I would say 8.9. I'm a good secret keeper and see no joy in backstabbing
I don't tell them all my personal business though. I keep things a secret that I think they shouldn't know.

Every friend is different, but Lala usually trusts whoever trusts Lala.

Also a low reward. There's more than one happiness.

I have some "friends," but only a handful are ones that I can truly be open with. To those few, I can talk about anything and everything, but to everyone else, almost nothing.

Quality over quantity.

I don't have any really close friends.

I tend to keep my own counsel.

I used to feel I had about 20 friends and like 50 acquantances in high school.


I'm still in high school but I go to a fairly large one. I'd say I meet about 200 new people every year but most of them end up being acquaintances who I only make small talk with. By the time I graduate I'll still be stranger to at least half the people in my grade. There are a number of people who I consider friends but most of us will probably never have much contact with each other when we part ways for college. Even so, I'll confide in them my "antics" and they .to me For all the fuss that surrounds "trust", I don't care much for betrayal as some call it nor the other high school drama it imparts. I trust freely because even if people snitch, a couple of misdemeanors won't set me back, or so I hope

My old friends are the ones I really trust. Me and my highschool friends aren't at that level, but I place a decent amount of trust in some of them. No huge secrets, though. Only for my old friends.

Trust usually comes naturally after I've been friends with them for quite a while, and I mean like years for me. Other than that, I wouldn't trust them on anything they usually say that sounds unrealistic or anything important that requires favors. I only have like two, and with college, since we go to different colleges, that will fade away.

I know it sounds bad, but, not really. It's just that I normally don't tell much about myself to other people, so even my "close" friends don't know my true feelings on many different topics, so it probably has a lot to do with just how I am, too. I don't know if they just assume that I agree with them or honestly don't care, but I lean towards the idea of the second. Sometimes it feels like we're friends for no reason, or I wonder why I still have friends. I don't know, maybe I can trust them with the majority of stuff but most of the time they just let me down or throw me under the bus.

you don't need trust when you're a wolf pack of one

i'm not really close with anyone but i tend to be one of those people that will help you selflessly when things are going to shit. i personally find it very hard to ask for help.
