When you are on the dating scene, you will sometimes come across single people who have their guards up. The type that keeps things close to the vest, revealing as little as possible in the beginning. These are folks who are dating in self-preservation mode.
You have probably been there before or you are there now. You trust no one. That’s all fine and dandy until you meet someone you actually like and they like you back. You can’t take things to the next level in self-preservation mode!
Eventually you have to decide if you want to give someone a chance to establish trust and consistency. How long should this take, though? If you are seeing someone you connect with, does it take you a long time to shift out of self-preservation mode?
Do you think that people who don’t trust easily are this way because they are the ones not trustworthy?
