I don't know, maybe I'm being harsh, but the greatest majority of people out there seem to be a**hole. I keep hearing awful stories about people being mean, dishonest and / or irresponsible. And it's happened to me many times before. How do I keep focused on the positive when I think of this? Any suggestions?

I think you just have to remember that if everyone fell in love with the first person they met or everyone married their high school sweethearts the average age for marriage would be like 18 rather than the mid-20s (and rising).
i dated two girls that cheated on me and it was devestating but I always tried to remember that it will only make finding the person I'm going to be with forever even more special since I went through so much crap.
I also just live by the saying, "it is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all".
If you let fear of bad relationships paralyze you then you'll never get anywhere. Just like a sports team you can appreciate finding a successful relationship more (winning a championship) after a series of bad relationships (after a series of defeats) and it will make that special relationship something you'll appreciate more
you "truly" appreciate
happiness without knowing sadness
wealth without knowing poverty
love without knowing heartache1
