18 people reveal the one thing that made them lose trust in someone, and it’ll give you permanent side-eye

Trust is one the hardest things to build, and the easiest thing to crumble. And it’s not exclusively limited to those closest to you. You can easily lose trust in a co-worker, an acquaintance, and even someone providing you with a service, just for doing something only slightly shitty.

This AskReddit thread is full of reasons you could instantly lose trust in someone, and the responses will have you giving some of the people you know a second look.

1. AveSophia doesn’t open up to just anyone anymore.

When they use an insecurity i told them about to hurt me.

2. CustomDark isn’t gonna hear you shit-talking your spouse.

I don’t trust anyone who openly speaks ill of their significant other. That’s the partner you’ve chosen. Either act like a partner or move on.

Telling a close friend or two about problems or just complaining in your inner circle is WAY different than the guy who openly has nasty things to say about his wife.

3. NightShiftNinja expects you to take the blame when it’s due.

If somebody makes it a point to stress how every relationship of theirs ended because it was all the other persons fault. Someone who’s comfortable always putting the blame on other people generally shouldn’t be trusted.

4. An easy way to stay off of Mappinus’ shit list.

I let them borrow something and they don’t give it back.

5. Anxiouspear assesses the risk on all personal loans.

When they say they can’t afford to pay you the money they owe you, but they are constantly spending money on other unnecessary things (fancy new gadgets/toys, expensive food, betting money on football games, etc)

There’s a big difference between not having the money and just not wanting to pay somebody

6. Don’t be extra around jospa27.

Someone who is cool with you one on one, but when it comes to a social outing, they go out of their way to one up you and show off every chance they get. Especially in front of the opposite sex or new people.

7. Most of us would whole-heartedly agree with Basshigh.

If they are mean to their pets

8. That shit is b-a-n-a-n-a-s, AverageCollegeMale.

If I learned they talked poorly about me to other people when I’m not there.

9. ElToberino does not have time for sneaky, multi-level marketing pyramid schemes.

If they ask to hang out on some bs pretense and then try to sell me their MLM shit

10. kingtz ain’t here for the gossip.

If they start telling me someone else’s secrets.

You just know they’d go around blabbing anything you tell them in confidence.

11. This is the ultimate diss, Kakarot5317.

If someone tries to high five-me but ducks their hand. Instant resentment towards them. A high five is a symbol of trust and bond. Can’t play around with that mane.

12. Yes, blong36! How freaking hard is it to walk 20 feet??

They don’t put the shopping cart in the cart return

13. Oh, this is the best tell about someone’s personality, gomichan.

If they’re mean to their waitress

14. Jercama just wants a 2-way street.

If they seem to always mysteriously disappear in times I need them the most. But is readily available if its a social situation.

15. This behavior is so damn devious, AgileInterviewer.

If that person has to abuse others… it’s all about the respect they are willing to give.

I went to dinner with friends recently, and they brought someone else with them, (let’s call him “X”).

The waitress arrives and be fore she can say anything, X laid 10 $1 bills on the table, and proceeds to tell her that it’s her tip, and every time she makes a mistake, he’s taking One away.

Seriously. We could not believe what we were seeing. By the time the meal was over, there were three dollars left, no explanation why the other seven were taken, and we left X on his own.

We made a point to ensure she had a substantial tip, along with our apologies, and we let the manager know that she’s not done anything wrong, just in case X did anything else.

That kind of abusive, controlling, manipulative behavior is fueled by contempt, narcissism, and disrespect.

16. This is why I don’t share food, Celt9782.

Putting ketchup all over the fries instead of a puddle off to the side

17. Doesn’t get any more telling that that, rvazquezdt.

When they use “trust me” or “believe me” all the time.

18. It me, Froggyboyyy.

“Are you sitting on the remote?”

“No.”

“Get up.”
