10 things that give me trust issues

There has been a very prominent theme amongst my Whatsapp girlfriends chats this weekend – trust. Trust being broken because others haven’t delivered on promises and trust gained because, ‘oh my god, he said he’d call me and HE DID.’ It got me thinking about how trusting (or not) I am and the events in my life that have led me to that level of trust. So as ever, here they are: the reasons I am so trust barren.

1. Takeaways that say they’ll be 35 minutes until delivery but it’s actually more like 50. My hunger grows expotentially during those extra 15 minutes and now I’m just HANGRY. No you won’t get a polite, ‘Evening’ as I open the door, you pizzaloverat.

2. Lipsticks that look all dark and seductive on the stick but pallid and insipid on your lips. YOUR NAME IS DARK CHERRY Y U LOOK LIKE STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM?

3. Men who claim they have a high sex drive but what they really mean is they watch a lot of porn. Well done on your 5 wanks today, but round 2 is a complete write off.

4. Scented sanitary towels. Your whole MO is to make things smell fresher but floral menstrual blood is not pleasant.

5. Guys on first dates that buy you doubles instead of singles. I know your game! You also booked this date for a Friday or Saturday night because you know I’m not up for work tomorrow. You plotting scoundrel, you.

6. Prosecco bottles that appear full but actually have 7 inches of extra glass at the bottom. I’VE HAD 2 GLASSES! How can you be empty already?

7. Men who blow smoke up your arse about how ‘amazing/pretty/intelligent/sexy/funny’ you are only to go quiet 5 minutes later. What happened? Did you die? I know all of the above are true so it can’t be that you were lying.

8. Friends who keep buying you alcohol on a night out. GOOD FRIENDS DON’T MAKE FRIENDS GO TO VIVA AT 2AM and they certainly don’t let you get off with that troll on the middle of the dance floor. These fiends are not to be trusted.

9. Clothes (normally from HM/Topshop) that brandish the size 12 label but you can’t get them over your ankle and/or wrist. DO YOU MEAN AGE 12? Have we all been confused all this time?

10. Netflix recommendations. Just when you thought your best friend, the one that brought Orange is the New Black and Making a Murderer into your life, has got your back, BAM they recommend you watch a documentary on Josef Fritzl and that’s 2 hours of your life you’re never getting back.

    oh my god yes! Every one I was like agreed, yup, been there! The sex drive thing is probably my most recent break of trust. Mega frustrated sigh. I dont trust buses. They just want me for my money and they dont care what time they show up. Not like I’m meant to be at uni or work or anything..

    So so true. Laughing out loud at the blokes with the porn inflated ego. Knowledge of porn =/= knowledge of good sex.

    YES! These are so true haha especially number 9!

    also – when you pick up what you think is a delicious crispy roast potato but what actually turns out to be a parsnip! Trust issue galore my friend.

    Haha I’m glad I’m not the only one who freaks out every time I try on clothes at H&M! It’s just mean on their part.

    And #4. Amen. It is disgusting and I can’t see how that was a woman’s idea.

    Laughed the whole way through this post because I can relate. Number 3 is the truest thing EVER, high sex drive is totally different from being a Top 5 Masturbater!

    I don’t believe there is any way that a woman thought of Number 4, absolutely disgusting. Yes we want to smell clean and fresh but scented menstrual blood and possible infections down there are things I am keen to avoid!!

    Yes to the scented sanitary towels, first time I came across these I was so confused, like did deodorant leak in them? No? They’re made that way? Thanks for the thrush then… Tmi?

    H&M sizing is ridiculous. I’ve owned stuff that’s an 8 and a 16 from there and I’ve basically been the same size for the last 10 years. Trust issues: My boyfriend telling me I’m doing something well WHEN I CLEARLY SUCK WHY ARE YOU LYING AND WHAT ELSE ARE YOU LYING ABOUT.
