Amid Rumors of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Dating, Have You Ever Kept a Relationship Secret?

Have You Ever Kept a Relationship Secret?

Are they or aren't they? Though Twilight fans desperately want Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to be a couple, the pair — if they even are a couple — stubbornly refuses to confirm their status. Despite rumors of the stars kissing and both of them showing up at this week's Remember Me premiere, we have no idea if they are just good friends or a secret couple.

People have different reasons for keeping relationships secret. In the case of celebrities, it's often to avoid publicity, but we regular folk might keep our coupledom on the down low if it could cause personal drama, complications at work, or other scandal. Have you ever kept a relationship secret? Please, dish the dirt.

I'm currently with my older brother's ex best friend. When they were still friends years ago, pretty much everyone knew there was something between us. When we decided to actually have a relationship about 5 months ago, there was no way I could have told my family. I brought it up kind of jokingly with my mom one night when she said I was going to need to start dating him. Even though we're long distance until August, I think everyone in my family knows now. I'm just so glad my brother doesn't give me hell over it like he did when we were younger or when me and the boy were just friends.

Can't really say that I have....too much work and I'd probably telling on myself. I'm terribly honest, especially when it comes to emotional stuff.

Currently. It's not so much a secret, but I'm just not telling everyone until the timing is right.

I kept my relationship with my ex a secret because my family hated him (for good reason) and I hated him too but I was afraid to leave him. I finally did leave and I'm glad. I also messed around with this married guy a few times, and we obviously kept it a secret. That wasn't a relationship though, that was cheap drunken hand/blow jobs in a parking lot.

ARGENTINIAN EXPERIENCE... I’m actually in a secret relationship. We work together so we can’t tell no one that we are a couple since the beginning of 2009, because if they know it one of us will have to get another job. I’m pretty sure that some if you will say that it has no comparison with KS & RP relationship, but I can tell you that I understand them because, beside they are famous and we are not, when “work” it’s between sometimes it can go wrong or misunderstood so it’s better to let everybody else dis-informed to avoid unnecessary comments.

i voted yes...we weren't technically a couple either but we definitely were coupley behind closed doors and no one knew it this was way back in highschool though...i didn't want anyone to know because he was 2 years younger than me and i thought it would make me seem super uncool

I voted no and then I realized I actually did once! When I was 16 I was an exchange student in Oregon and I hooked up with my host brother a couple of times. Only my lil sister knew. When I came back to visit them 3 years later we actually were together for the whole 6 weeks but didn't tell my host parents because we thought they'd freak out. They are really religious and would not have wanted us even sleeping under the same roof together. When the eventually found out (Dad saw us holding hands at Walmart ;) they were actually pretty cool about it.

My partner and I kept it secret because we wanted to know if any of our friends would figure it out, and if they didn't we'd tell everyone two years later! They all figured it out after about three months though.

I met my husband at work and we kept it quiet until after I transferred to another location and he quit, about 6 months.

A bit off-topic, but oh Lordy Lord, I am so sick of this tiresome, overexposed couple!

Yes, I wasn't allowed to have a boyfriend when I was in high school, but I did anyway ;) My parents and family didn't know for the first 8 months we dated. It finally blew up in my face when my mom started questioning the midnight phone numbers on my cell phone bill, but 5 years (today marks 5!!) later, we're still together.

Twice! Once when I was 16 and working my first job at Blockbuster HAHA! Another co-worker (also 16) and I started dating. It eventually came out and no one was surprised. I'm glad I learned the mistake of dating a co-worker at an early age. It was awkward when we broke up. The second time I kept a relationship secret was when my ex and I got back together. We eventually told everyone we were dating again.

S. and I were "just friends" who met through work. I was definitely attracted to him, and would find excuses to talk to him and flirt with him. I'd go to the bar with him and our other coworkers, and make sure that one of us had enough to drink so that the other would have to drive home. After a while, we started stealing little moments together so that we could kiss goodnight or hold hands. There was no way a relationship between us would work. I was engaged at the time, he was about 10 years older than me, and he eventually got promoted to a serious manager position. Being seen with me in any outside of work context would mean big trouble for him. While this whole thing was going on; the meeting, the flirting, the kissing, and finally the "We can't do this anymore" talk, I was writing angsty journal entries about how much I wished he would love me. Looking back now, I think he did. Our relationship was so secret, we hid it from each other. I'm gonna go cry into a really strong drink now.

Yes, I was 16, my bf was 21. My dad didn't like it much and told me to break up with him but I didn't. We kept it a secret until a year later when I went to college. Almost six years later we are still together.

Hey, we all keep secrets :) But too many secrets are a bad idea when it comes to many things.

Well, yes, but we weren't technically a "couple" . But still, we kept that hush-hush. I'm still ashamed to admit it though.
