How do you know it's genuine?

I'm the type of person who gauges things much more on actions then I do on words. I never really could determine whether that's good or bad. I think it's been helpful as much as it's been hindering. I have found that there are a lot of people in this life that don't really know how to express themselves (be it in speech or be it in action). I have found myself quite moved by words lately. Yes words can be deep and words can be shallow. Words can be cruel and words can be kind. They can be hurtful or can be encouraging. What I question is.....are they genuine? How do you ever really know?

It is a leap of faith I guess.

There are a lot of people (especially men) who will say anything that they think a woman wants to hear. Some of them are genuine and others are not. I think it is safe to say that most peoples words are like their actions... NO GENUINE AT ALL.

You don't know until you can see the person saying the words in the eyes. That's when you know if the words are genuine ..... according to me that is

I don't suppose you ever really do know... At least in the short term. I suppose most of us get to the point when we can kind of "read" sincerity in anothers words. Maybe not the words as much as the manner, posture, body language? Or maybe just some unconscious sense? Who knows. I guess the best you can hope for is sincerity and take what you can get...
