Are You Good at Keeping Secrets?

Don't you love it when a friend confides in you with a secret? It makes you feel special and trusted so if someone shares a tidbit of news with you and they specifically tell you not to tell a soul, do you keep your word? Does it depend on what the secret is? Do you only tell your significant other or another close friend? Or do you have a really hard time keeping secrets to yourself and tend to blab to anyone who will listen?

I can keep others' secrets, but I have a hard time keeping my own.

I am the ultimate secret keeper!! You would not believe the things that people tell me! In fact my friends jokingly call me "Dr." and say they know we have "fake doctor-patient confidentiality" (believe me, I am not implying here that I in any way would ever impersonate a doctor or healthcare professional. It's just an inside joke).

I'm terrible at keeping secrets. I'm an open, sharing person by nature and if I so much as see a pretty flower, I want to take a picture and tell everyone I know. If the secret is serious, I'd just tell my boyfriend unless he shouldn't know. I'm getting better as I get older at keeping secrets to myself.

I'm ok I guess. I usually tell my sister in law because she knows the people I talk about but not so much that she'd ever be interested in gossiping about it. But if its something really big I usually keep it to myself.

I am, actually. In fact i do my own investigating of sorts and gain a little bit o' knowledge(secrets).

I am the place where secrets go to die. I never repeat a thing that's shared in confidence.

I tell my best friend and my boyfriend everything. I'd probably say that my boyfriend is the only one that I tell EVERYTHING to, though- there are some things I can't talk to my best friend about because she won't understand.

I would like to say that I am good at it but the truth is if it something juicy I do share it. I just don't disclose names, usually the person I am telling doesn't know who they are anyway.

It depends what it is. If I'm asked not to repeat it, I won't. If not, I'll sometimes share with my boyfriend, but usually keep it to myself and leave it at that.

I'm fantastic at keeping secrets! I know what it's like to have someone tell other people my "secrets" soo I would never want to do that to one of my friends!

I can keep a secret but sometimes I'll tell my dad just to get it out of my system! Besides, he's so far removed from the situation that it's not like he'll blab anyway.

I'm very good at keeping secrets. Sometimes I tell my boyfriend and sometimes I don't - it depends on the secret. But he and I don't really share the same friends so it is not a big deal and he would NEVER bring anything up so I think it's fine. I keep secrets because I would want my secrets to be kept as well.

I'm REALLY good at it... I would never betray a close friend's secret, unless they were somehow in danger. Which hasn't happened to me yet.

When someone tells me not to tell anyone I tell two people my mom and my soon to be husband. If I tell someone a secret I expect the

I'm good at keeping secrets that are entirely someone else's. If I'm a part of them...then they have a tendency to slip out (almost like I give myself permission ^_^)!

Oh, and if my soon to be husband and I divorced. I would not use his secrets against him either. I do not know if that is naive, or just the right thing to do. But, it has felt right in the case of my exs.

I keep all confidences. I love my husband, but he does not need to know my parents, siblings, or BFFs secrets. I love my siblings, parents, and BFFs, but they do not need to know what my husband confides in me. Jinx, I am the same way! Even I ended up hating the person, I would not betray their trust.

I like to think so unless it might physically or emotionally hurt another person really bad...

I can't keep secrets like what I got someone for Christmas, etc. but if someone tells me not to tell something to anyone else, I won't.

I am pretty good at keeping secrets. I usually share them with my boyfriend though. Most everyone who would even tell me a secret knows I share things with my bf. However, if they tell me not to tell him I won't.
Jinx Jinx 9 years
Yes I am. I never tell a secret. Name Rank and Serial number is all you're getting out of me! ;)
Lovely_1 Lovely_1 9 years
I will always keep a secret if the person tell me to. Usually though i will tell my boyfriend. He really doens' care about the secret and boys are just better at not sharing everythign to the world. Most of the time i will tell him all of them UNLESS I'm told not to tell him. Then I keep it all to myself :)
