I think that trust is not something to be taken for granted, but something earned. It is like at this site. When I do come here to respond to things, I generally will respond to everything in this forum and the member forum that I haven't already responded to. That includes to things posted by new people, like yourself, I do not know. That I respond to people I don't know, yes, I am accepting at 'face value' that they are here as a male survivor seeking help. That is one level of trust I suppose. But I am not posting my home telephone number or address here either!
I just feel that to trust someone to quickly, it is not meant to be in that way. Trust occurs over time, not just as a singular event. That goes for everything in my life. Even people I have known for long time, people I have not been given reason to distrust, I can be wary of at times. That is me, that is a remnent of the abuse, and that is my issue. But it is also a safety net for me, and I do not plan to discard it.
