I tell my husband everything. He's the only person I know who can always keep a secret. Not like me.

I usually tell my boyfriend things. Usually, I am known and trusted for being discreet. I can't honestly recall someone swearing me to secrecy. He can tell me things, but doesn't have to say to me to shhhh, but I do with him! He will ask the person out of concern. One of his buds is an ex Chippendale dancer and he disclosed the guy had slept with over 3000 girls in his lifetime. So when it came out from his buddy on a Vegas trip, I acted all surprised. His friend told him later, wow...I'm impressed you didn't tell S that. I agree that sometimes when people tell us stuff, it is hard to handle. I tend to be the one that people run too, and sometimes, it is two friends fighting against each other so it is good to have him...I trust him in that sense.

I will spill it but I change the names to protect the identity usually to someone that works for my company he doesn't know anyone there so it doesn't matter.

I tell him some things but not everything. Certain secrets need to be kept secrets no matter what........

And if you hadn't told him what was making you unhappy, he could've wind up thinking he did something wrong...

Exactly...which is kinda what a partner is for, right? To help and lend support. There are some things he doesn't need to know, but some he does.

I totally understand Mme! Some secrets you shouldn't have to carry alone, and the best solution is to tell someone you love and trust.

Okay, I can explain my comment a bit more now that I've thought about it. There was this one time where I had to tell my husband the secret I was told because it send me into a depressed state where I cried and cried. He needed to know what was bothering me...that's the type of stuff I share. Not whether such and such is going to propose or get a bikini wax...he'd tune that out anyway lol

fashion_doll... later on, i found out completely randomly and by accident what the secret had been (from someone else) and it REALLY WAS big. i respected my bf even more after that

I tell him lots of things, but sometimes I don't. It's hard keeping something inside sometimes, but I only tell him...not other friends.

Same thing happened to me Liza! At first I was sooo curious to find out what it was, but then I realized what a great friend he was being, and that he could be trusted with everything. It made him even MORE attractive for me.

i tell my bf everything, but one time his best friend told me something that was apperently really serious and he refused to tell me.... at first i was really annoyed and kept on bugging him, but now i really respect him for being so loyal to his friend

I hope this doesn't sound conceited, but I think I'm one of the bestest secret keepers ever. :) ------------------------------------------------------ Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. — Albert Einstein

I only tell him stuff because I have a bad memory. And he will let me know later on why I make some decisions I do.
fashion_doll24 fashion_doll24 9 years
I tell him certain things, but if I know it is really important to my friends that NO ONE knows, I won't tell him. But I know he's totally discrete and won't go blabbing everything to his friends :) I've got the good guy!

Totally Jennifer, I tell mine what he will listen to. :) I know he won't listen to certain things (actual gossip) so I actually don't tell him much... ;) BringbackBrilson

NEVER! and i don't expect him to tell me things his friends share with him. my parents shared everything and it caused some issues because some of the men were cheating on their wives and then my mom was mad and wanted to say something to her friends (their wives), yadda, yadda, yadda. 2007?
