I don't have any close friends anymore. My best friend who passed away in 2014 knew everything there was to know about me. Now, I have friends but I wouldn't say their close. I wouldn't share my life with them.

You know, Jan, I do. It's kind of a funny, ironical type of question. You wouldn't think that trust would be an issue with a close, best friend. But I trusted someone that I considered a best friend and she turned on me recently. So I guess we're not besties any longer.

Danae, I trusted someone and found out later she was very dishonest with me. Not judging but I thought since we were gooooood friends I could expect complete honesty with me.

Yes, I agree with you. It makes you feel like you didn't know them in the first place or they put up a good front just for your friendship, which is sad. I'm like Rooster - I don't have a ton of friends and the ones I do have, I trust. At least, until they prove that they're not trustworthy. I'm sorry this happened.

No, I really don't. I'm not a very trusting person anyway but I can't think of any of my friends that I don't trust. Not that I have many but the ones I do, I trust.

There's only one person in my life that I completely trust with thoughts, my wants, my heart.....other than that person, I don't completely trust anyone.

I have many friends .. On many levels .. They range from my closest friends whom I trust with my life .. To friendly aquaintances whom I have no clue about just how trust 'worthy' they are.

I have several I don't completely trust. I know they have shared other people's secrets with me, so I can only presume they would share mine with others. It is human nature to gossip.
