I do know that I trust no one. You have to earn your trust. I look at trust as a point scale. You start out with zero and as you go, you earn more points. If you screw up, I deduct points. Once you get back to zero, I no longer feel any need for either of us to maintain any form of communication. Am I bitter, yes, in many instances. But I dont want to keep "dead ends" lying around.
I had over 1300 friends on facebook about 2 months ago. I now have about 400. Why? Half the people where cousins of people I know or relatives of people I knew, or people I went to high school with but dont even talk to anymore, friend's spouses, etc....just a ton of random people that I really dont even aquaint myself with. So I deleted them. Deleted the "dead ends",
