But I'm so scared. How do I get someone that will treat me with equal respect.
My father has disrespected me and my mother in SO many ways... the biggest being cheating on her. And to this day, continuing to see the women.
She was introduced as a "family friend" and stayed with us for awhile before moving into a house, and now, my mom and dad have her over all the time. And my mom tries (sometimes unsuccesfully) to not be bothered by the fact that my father continues to act like he's done nothing wrong.
Honestly, I have little faith in the male population, even though I wish I did.
I know I probably won't get the man I want from having this distrustful feeling towards guys, but I can't help be terrified that I'm going to be cheated on... so I distance myself, and never completely open up in relationships.
Any help at all... would be wonderful.

If you don't start dating, you will not find the right one. You possibly find the wrong one first, but it is ok. Men are not all the same. Some have experiences just like you and have the same beliefs as you. There is definitely the right one for you out there.
To cheat or not is a decision. How can you know if one will cheat? You will never know until you are in the relationship with him. Don't be afraid. You will just get stronger with all the experiences you will get. :)
