I want to date again. I want to learn to trust guys again. (And not runaway at the slightest inclination of relationship drama.)
I've been burned in long term relationships. But who hasn't.
Do you have any legitimate advice, or links to helpful sites that may have helped you?

If you wanna take a page from my book, my advice is hone your ability to read people. From relationships, to friends, the sharper you can identify integrity in a person, the less likely you are to be backstabbed or fooled. And don't just, like, see what you WANT to see. What you LIKE to see, you have to really see the person for who they are, pretty, ugly, insecure, impulsive, the whole nine yards.
Now, some people say this is impossible to do perfectly, it might be, but let's stop and look at the equation. The ONLY way someone can truly hurt you from the inside is if you let them in, no one opened that door to your heart, only YOU did. So while that person who broke your heart IS a douchebag, we also are partially to blame, this is unavoidable.
So, look deeper, learn to control and understand yourself, and the people around you. That way, you will have less regrets and your ability to selectively choose your life mates and your friends become clearer.
Also, listen, sorry to hear you got burned. Not all guys are like that, honestly. Some of us CAN control our brains and our penises, it's just, it takes a lot of self discovery and observation to do so. It's hard to find people like that.
