Dear Poll: Do You Share Your Secrets?

I consider myself a great secret keeper when it comes to other peoples' classified information, but when it comes to my own secrets, I usually have to tell someone! While I definitely use my discretion, being able to talk about whatever is on my mind really helps me get the clarity I need. Are you the same way? Do you usually have to tell at least one person your secrets?

I put other because it depends on my secret, I will share my dumb funny ones, But i don't spill ALL of my secrets, most of them tho. I usually like being secret free, it makes life less stressful.

I have my deep dark secrets that only certain people know, and they know if they spill they'll die a very painful death. :p But I tend to be very open. I always share things with my partner, unless it's something I'm sworn to total secrecy with.

i always tell my husband all of my secrets, as he does me. i'll tell things that friends tell me in confidence, but only to him. we both know our, or our friends', secrets aren't going anywhere but between us.

It depends whether or not it's a super secret secret! I tend not to spill the inner workings of my mind... it would scare my boyfriend too much. =)

I tell my sister and we have a whole "code of ethics" that specifies whether she can tell her husband, whether mom or another sibling can find out or if it's just a total, take it to the grave secret. I never tell my secrets right away though, I have to think about them for a long time!:)

I do not tell my own secrets, or any secret a friend has confessed to me. I am a secretive person, and I like privacy. I don't even tell my big secrets to my SO, because anything I say can be re-hashed, used against me, whatever else people want to do. So, to avoid all the fuc*ery, I keep it all to myself.

i'm good with other people's truly classified information, but for me, i NEEEEED to talk everything out. i normally choose one person and it depends on the situation. one of my good girlfriends, my mom, or my sister normally...and by telling them, i am able to go back to them throughout whatever it is to get clarity

I think telling secrets about your significant other is the absolute worst idea.

Most of the time, there'll b someone or the other in whom i'll confide. but i don't let out all my secrets to a single person as that means i'll be completely tied down to him or her. So, except the fact that I almost cheated on my boyfriend once, which I hav anonymously confessed on internet, I do tell things about friends to my boyfriend and vice-versa

Oh, and I think there was a post on here like.. a year ago that was something along the lines of.. 'do you share secrets with your s/o' and almost everyone said that they would need someone to say specifically 'dont tell so and so' for them NOT to tell their s/o.. another reason why I would keep a secret to myself. If its something personal, I shouldn't have to specify 'dont tell your boyfriend,' and even if I did, I couldn't be sure wether they would actually not tell him.

I don't really have any secrets.. but, I guess if there was something important I would keep it to myself, if I really didn't want to risk the secret getting around or turning into a rumor or something.

I agree with star, there are certains things I will take to my grave. I'm not a fan of when I confide in someone and they go and tell their friend or s/o. If I tell someone something that's between them and I.

Depends. I don't tell anyone anything I don't want anyone but myself to know. I don't trust anyone. Sometimes not even myself. When emotions fly, people say things.

I've learned not to. People are QUICK to break promises and spill shit when friendships or whatever end.

I agree with stargazer. I also learned the hard way to keep my own secrets to myself. If you don't want anyone to know something keep your mouth shut or anonymously talk about it on the net. :P

something I learned a little while ago... you don't tell someone something unless you want someone else to know... so if you share something secretive (especially if it's juicy gossipy type of stuff) then they are bound to share it with someone else.
