Go with your gut.

Also, if they are afraid to trust you do not trust them.

Nobody can be trusted. Every action has an ulterior motive behind it consciously or subconsciously known.
Just kidding. that was a bad joke
Not everyone has ulterior motives but i don't know who to trust so i generally don't trust friends.

Get better at eyeballing if you're so afraid of getting ripped off...

Tell them your kryptonite, if they're really your friends, they'll keep it away from you.

Seeing that I've gotten fucked over multiple times by friends, even at a time my best friend, I pretty much skeptical of everyone even if I don't seem like it to them.

I guess life has taught me to not trust anyone except:

Family, Country, and God.

If you have to question whether or not you can trust them then you probably cant. However length of friendship is generally a good indication, and during that time you should be able to judge their character.

I go by D.T.A

Don't trust anyone


Whenever people ask me to trust them I give them the look.

I trust people until they give me a reason not to trust them.

In my opinion, the best way to tell is to be in a position where they could easily gyp you, but they don't.

Once I bought a 160 dollars of bud from a friend, but the dealer only had 140... so he gave me my 20 back... now... how can you tell a 140 from a 160 by looking at it? You really can't, especially since amount varies based on grade. And you don't' check anyway. We stoners have a proud system of etiquette.

So he could have taken my 20 no problem, but he didn't, if he did, he'd have easily gotten away with it. And that's the reason I know he can be trusted


Gyp is a racist term.

My friends don't have to apologize when they use the term, they just have to understand that it's racist and work towards using a different term for the same circumstance.

A bad deal has nothing to do with Gypsy ethnicity, just call it a bad deal.

Go ahead and say it's not intentional racism, I'll go ahead and say "Fine, but a figurative bad deal has nothing to do with literal Gypsies that not only exist in this world, but were subjected to the same discrimination as Jews during the Holocaust."

Go ahead and claim you had no racist intent, I'll go ahead and tell you how language builds culture which builds language which creates a feedback loop.

Double down on your ignorance of that and you'll know if I trust you based on the harshness of my words. Especially in the case of unintentional racism, the more I trust you, the harsher the words, you Gaul derned idiot

Wise words, but misguided. If you are nothing beyond what you are and somebody gets a bad hunch, that ain't the chunch.

People read anxiety as mistrust, that's rarely the case. It's more of an over-trust that burns them.

You believe somebody is speaking the truth, they tell you they weren't, rebuilds a lot of anxiety.

Your mistrust needs to be exclusive to you, you can't levy it on the other person.

Basically, your gut is wrong a lot of the time.

You don't know if a a friend can be trusted, you just have to trust them. If they lie or if they betray you then they are not your friend. Simple as that. But there are loop holes to what I say because I have a friend that lies a lot but I can tell when he is actually telling the truth.


That's trust.

The only way I truly trust someone is if I've known them for decades and
over that time I feel I understand that person(for the most part). The
understanding is knowing what type of person not that they are
"trust worthy". Example would be one of my best friends. Can I trust
him to lie for me? NO But I do trust him to always be honest even if
its not in my gain since that's the type he is.(I need no lies)
