I'll come right out and say it; I'm having a problem trusting people. Sort of. Okay, so I asked out cute guy at work (this was last week; I'm just getting around to talking about it now) and he told me he was still with his girl trying to work some stuff out, but to feel free to message him (which I have btw, and he hasn't responded. Funny, that). I said that was cool, and I respect that. A co-worker/friend asked him a couple days later if he was single... and he said yes. I was outraged. Why would he feel the need to lie to me? Why couldn't he just tell me he wasn't interested? I'm an adult, I think I could take it. Meanwhile he's all nice to me at work, callin' me 'hun'. Yeah, I know, he was just trying to spare my feelings. Blah blah blah. Please. Why is it so much for me to expect honesty?!?!
Now, before we get too much ahead, I'm no queen, either. I'm by far perfect and I have my occasions of sin. But I do my best to say things upfront, in whatever manner possible. Do I always? No (this is why this post might make me sound out to be a hypocrite. I doubt you'd be wrong).
A co-worker said to me today, while we were discussing this, "Why are you so hard on people?" "I don't know," I said and sat in thoughtful silence.
