over time, i've come to terms with the lack of trust I feel towards people. Indeed, only a few of my most close friends I really trust and confide to. still, this has always presented problems when it comes to romantic relationships. i don't really trust women, i don't know why, i think they will not be true to me, they will lie, they will..ultimately hurt me. that's why i never tend to get really attached to anyone and go for short-term flings rather than anything more meaningful. it is not unusual for me to run away from even the possibility of something happening because of this self-protection i always look for.
do you think this is at all reasonable? i guess it really comes down to the indivudal in particular but...i don't know, i just act this way. the thing is there are really people who make you wrong... how do you think i could deal with this..probably a therapist would help right? any comments would be really good.

If you think you need a therapist, by all means, find a good one. You sound like you have a good handle on what you need to work on, you may not even need to be there all that long.

What you're feeling sounds normal enough, but it does sound like something you need to work on. Trust is a big part of any relationship.
