I wonder why anyone would (choose) to be around someone they did not trust! It's as though they are deliberately choosing to ignore their (gut instincts) or "red flags".
This often happens during the "infatuation phase". You want something so bad you (choose) to ignore any thought that would keep you from having it.
These are the same people after experiencing heartache who will (blame the other person) for hurting them. When in fact they hurt themselves by NOT listening to their inner guide.
At the end of the day each of us chooses our own friends, lovers, and spouse. Whether we end up happy or hurt it's important to remember at some point (we) said "yes" to them.
