Two of my children and I are lifelong abductees and in speaking from this view point it is hard to disagree with you more. What makes you believe they are a peaceful bunch of entities simply searching the cosmos? These bastards torture, test, and manipulate you into whatever their agenda is.
Thinking they are only a peaceful group of entities is extremely dangerous and will lead you into a life of slavery.
sell us the equivalent of beads, mirrors and liquor and other relatively worthless swag in exchange for resources we really don't know the true value of.

I personally believe in aliens, but I believe that they do not come in contact with us due to our primitiveness.

That is unlikely for a race of aliens who are traversing the universe into our neck of the woods. The only reason a race of beings capable of travelling the vast distances of space to get to us, would do so, would be, in my opinion, to extract resources.
This clearly is not the case.
So either they have indeed reached self sufficiency to the point that they can simply observe us without interference, or they're not here.
If we ever do make contact, you can most likely be guaranteed that they will consider us as natives and the resources we have as theirs for the taking... possibly even us included.
If intelligent alien races existed, they would not come in contact with us due to our primitiveness
