Do You Talk Openly About Your Love Life?

Jessica Simpson openly talked about her love life yet again at the Nascar Bank of America 500 on Saturday night in Concord, NC. As someone that's constantly in the public eye, I'd think that she'd want to keep at least some things sacred, but it's pretty clear that she's not afraid to expose her heart or the details of her personal life to the world. Of course it's impossible to stay mum about the love in your life, but when it comes to your relationship, are you open and willing to talk about it every chance you get or do you prefer to keep the excitement of your personal life between you and your partner?

i try not to talk about my love life with people, but then again i'm a very private person about just about everything. i'm from the school of people who think that if you talk about things you'll jinx them and that's something that i'm always afraid of. i feel like jessica is just setting herself up for disaster again cause Tony really seems like a private kind of guy and yet she's bringing him into all the publicity that surrounds her.

Oh my goodness, all day and all night and every chance I get! I'm so in love with Jerry and I just know that he is my other half, my soulmate! But I do try not to have to talk about him CONSTANTLY, becuz I do not want to get on peeps nerves lol! Some people think I'm trying to throw it in their face, but I'm not!! I am just so excited that he actually picked ME! I've never got that lucky in my life, and Im just so proud that he's mine that I wanna shout it out to the whole world! LoL!

I totally agree with you Brandy and it is just inviting people to be in your business.
I don't discuss my relationship with others. The way I see it, if you talk to people about your relationship, you are inviting them to voice their opinion, and it isn't needed. Also, at work, I refuse to discuss my relationship. I may mention him in passing, but if you ask me a question about him, or our relationship, I refuse to answer. I believe that I am my own person, and as a woman, we are often defined by our significant others. I don't want someone to define me as "That's Brandy, she dates this guy, whose does this." No, I'm Brandy, if you'd like to describe me, maybe you should get to know me better to find out what I'm about, rather than defining me as my significant other's girlfriend.

I did not even read this article, but I know what it is about. Hell no I do not talk about my love life in public. That is only to the people I trust who I know will not spread my business all over the place.

Only anonymously. Or when it comes to parents, only when the guy is upstanding and take-home-to-mom material. If he's a total Cisco Adler, then no.

I definitely think my relationship is my personal business. If I feel the need to talk about it, I will. But I usually prefer to keep pretty quiet.

I'm kind of in the middle, I guess. I can really run off at the mouth sometimes, and when he does something super adorable, I can't shut up about it; but I don't want to be "that girl," so I try to keep it it in check and I confine my honesty to people who might actually care about me. I definitely don't talk about the bad times very much. One friend knows about some tough times my husband and I have had, but she only knows part of it. No one needs to hear about our marriage counseling sessions! And I definitely never talk about our sex life.

I went to a free concert after a Diamondbacks game and Jessica Simpson was the performer . I thought hey, this train-wreck could be REALLY interesting to watch! Let me tell you it was. She would explain every song (I kid you not) for about 5 mins. She would not shut up about Tony Romo and people were booing her. Get a clue chick, shut up! What's funny is, I really do like her first single... I just find her to be annoying as hell! I think she just says all the stuff to get more attention, pathetic!

No, not unless I need advice which usually signals the end of the relationship anyway.

No! I feel awkward even referring to my relationship in public. I've been with the same man for over 3 years now, so it's not as if we're hiding it. I just feel that my relationship with him is something incredibly private and special. Other than the knowledge that we are together and how long, most of my friends and family know little else about it.

I don't share details, like sex life or private moments, but I did broadcast the fact that I fell in love to friends. I'd want them to share that with me, and I was really excited - and they were excited for me.

Nope. My husband and I are private people, and we like to keep personal information between us. We're both introverts, too. I'm open to talking about superficial information like holiday plans, weekend jaunts, but nothing personal and sensitive.

I talk about it openly... but not THAT openly. I don't mind telling people a few details, but I save the dirty details for the two of us (and a couple friends who just like to know that crap, haha!). I have nothing to hide, but I do feel like there is a point where it can be TMI and smothering.

Sure, there are certain things that are too personal to share, but for the most part, I have close friends, and that's what close friends are for, right? If you can't tell your closest friends your closest secrets... then why are they around? I'm in a long-distance marriage, so I think it naturally is prone to more frustration and more minor arguments because you can't deal with things face-to-face, and it's nice to be able to talk about that with friends... and likewise, they'll talk to me about their relationships -- both the good and the bad. It's nice to get another female perspective.

im with daria about the jinxing so no i try not to
aka-Daria aka-Daria 8 years
rarely, because i notice that when you talk too much about someone you care about [males im interested in, in my case] you jinx yourself and it fucks up on you and you're left lonely.

I don't really share details about feelings, fights, sex life, and stuff like that, but I'll talk about our plans or stuff we've done together--the less intimate details.

With the exception of some select friends, I rarely share any details of my relationship. I am private about certain things..of course using this platform of semi-anonymous postings I have shared plenty insight on the sugar site lol
