I hate to say it, but it's better to be cautious and doubtful - at least for the women. Only because guys tend to be more devious than women. That's not to say women can't be devious. It just means men are more devious than women. Both men and women should be cautious either way. NEVER be naive, no matter what.0

Trust is the foundation for every relationship and friendship. Trust needs to be earned, not given away freely. It takes time to build trust in anyone. It would be naive to give your trust to a person who has not given you any reason to put your faith in them. If not, you would be setting yourself up to be manipulated and played.
I don't believe a person should enter into a relationship full of doubt either , by believing they are going to be hurt, or believe the person will cheat on them or leave them. Trust comes gradually and naturally as you get to know someone. You can't start a relationship wondering and worrying it is not going to work... especially when the person has not given a reason for you to think that
So personally , i believe you have to give a certain amount of trust unless they give you a reason not to trust them, but not to be naive as to trust wholeheartedly before you get to know them more.
I also believe that once you do give a person your trust you have to love like you'll never be hurt.2
