    Nah, I don't trust anyone. I can find people reliable or principled or ethical and honorable and I think that's plenty.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I tend to trust that people and animals will behave in the future as they have behaved in the past unless something compelling changes its course.

    I don't tend to expect people to trust me without knowing me. It doesn't offend me as much as other people if people don't initially trust me.

    At some point there is a leap of faith where trust has to be given as a gift, but most people have had their trust betrayed, so I don't expect the trust of a child which is given as an innocent gift. I'm happy to earn trust and tend to need that same time to see patterns of behavior that won't harm me over time.

    Trust is allowing one's self to be vulnerable without fearing ttb e repercussions for doing so later on. Trust is faith in someone's ability to be nurturing.
