Can you determine a good person from a bad person when you first meet? If so, how?


I have so much trouble with people because I can't tell if they are friend or foe until they stab me in the back. Do you have any suggestions that might help me?

    I thank you also for the kind words. I sometimes wonder if life has a dry sense of humor and that is what I keep experiencing.

    I try to see good in everyone and thus I get burned a lot. But sometimes, I think it is worth it to see the good others try to hide so they can look big.

    Thank you for your inspiration, dashingscorpio, however my 'gut feeling' about people doesn't seem to work. Part of my problem, I guess, because I don't seem to get a gut feeling about anyone, am I missing something?

    I doubt that Cheryl will become cynical and I know you're not suggesting she will. I agree that we must continue to enjoy life, but we still have to remain alert. Evil has a way of contaminating whatever it touches. We must therefore be cognizant.
