    What is it about trust that is difficult in adult relationships? 
    Wikipedia defines trust as:firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.
    A professor once gave a lecture stating those who mistrust do so because of their belief that others would conduct themselves as they would-negatively.  He stated that is the reason why people don't leave keys in a vehicle because they expect others to do what they might do-take the vehicle. Interesting perspective.
    What are your thoughts on why people find it hard to trust others when dating and in a relationship?  Is it fear of hurt?
    Is it mistrusted based on the perceived character of the person or the belief that people would rather do you harm than good?
    Within trust in a relationship, the foundation is not solid yet people find it just as hard to trust as they find it difficult to love. Is it better to trust until there is not a reason to trust or distrust until the person earns or proves they deserve to be trusted?  What does each practice reveal about a persons thought process?
