Default Do you tell or keep sectrets?

When someone tell you something and ask you to keep it a secret and to don't tell anyone else, do you really keep the secret?

Come on peeps, tell the truth. When they say "can you keep a secret" they basically mean just don't tell someone that they know or don't use the name.

Generally yes because I only have a few friends who aren't connected in anyway so I don't have anyone else to tell, or who'd care. It gets more difficult when you hang out in large groups and everyone knows everyone else.

I wouldn't let a secret slip if I thought it would come back to seriously hurt them such as physical harm or ending a relationship. But lesser secrets I sometimes tell my best friends (2-3 of them). Usually if the secret is stupid and we get a laugh out of it. I trust them not to tell anyone else (or at least not the wrong people). But out of principle I wouldn't even tell them if it was really serious.

Default Re: Do you tell or keep sectrets?

Depends...but usually I do keep them. Unless it is something that needs to be told. Like If I had two close friends, one female, one male, and they were both dating and then one of them cheated on them. I would considering telling that secret.

I have never kept secrets like that, but it is just an example of when I would potentially tell one.

Default Re: Do you tell or keep sectrets?

Generally if people are telling me they want me to keep secrets, I read that as drama and tell them I would rather not hear a bunch of stuff I do not need to know. That being said, if someone really needs me to keep a secret, I will take it to the grave.

You can tell anything as long as you don't give out the name. Especially if it's someone who knows the person who told you the secret.

Instead of saying "Hey man, Jimmy did this ..." just say "Man, I heard this dude so and so ..." BAM.

Default Re: Do you tell or keep sectrets?

It depends, what I've learned about people telling secrets is that they don't keep it much of a secret themselves. My friend will tell me something and say to keep it a secret only to have another friend bring it up saying, "Did he/she tell you about this or that?" Only when that happens do I discuss it with other people.

Pretty much this. I have kept a secret when it was a legit one but other than that, the person who tells the "secret" usually tells other people and it isn't really a secret anymore.
