Do you trust other people automatically …

Do you trust other people automatically until they do something to break that trust… or do you reserve your trust until they have earned it?

    I don’t trust deeply very easily at all. But I don’t necessarily totally distrust at the beginning either. Once my trust is broken, it’s rarely regained.

    I don’t trust very easy!
    I have had bad D’s in the past and had been off the scene for nearly 10 years before i met my Dom.
    We have worked together for nearly 18 months before he became my Dom, which helps alot on the trust, he knows my issues, we talk about everything and have no secrets, we trust eachother fully!
    And as Kinkybelle, once my trust is broken, it is rarely regained!

    I tend to be way too trusting right away. I’m a person of my word and I guess I assume others to be as well. I’ve been burned by this line of thinking in the past and have tried to adjust my approach, although I haven’t been very successful in doing so. I’m an optimist and see the best in people and can’t seem to get away from trusting first when I know it’d ultimately be better for ME for people to earn my trust rather than just blindly believing. But I agree, with both of you…once that trust is broken, forget it…I’m forever skeptical of every word that follows.

    I don’t trust anymore until the trust has been earned. I’m in a new bf/gf relationship at age 51 after being married for over 35 years and when you’ve been mentally and physically abused it’s hard to trust your new special partner at first. We’ve been incorporating a D/s dynamic into our lives and that as well needs for the trust to be earned by both.
