General opinion is that man is capable of safeguarding a secret entrusted to him not to reveal. The women folk assemble at taps, river beds, wells and start to gossip but cause of conversation it is likely to leak out a secret which is not suppose to let it out in public. If my opinion is seeked in this matter nowadays it is men who are not trustworthy. I let mylot people to discuss further and write your opinion

I think it depends on who are you talking to. Same gender probably the most trust worthy in safeguarding your secret. See.. If you are a man trusting your secret to a man, the chances they blow it up is very small, especially, talking about secret with other man, they will share theirs. Same thing on woman with woman. They will share more secrets and they will keep it safer. When you told a girl your darkest secret, come to think of it, is there any chance she won't tell her best friend about it? Same think happens when a girl told her secret to you. Can you keep it? More chances that you'll tell your best friend and say, "I only share this with you. Please don't share to others." Another thing is about the maturity of each person. The more mature the person is, the more they can keep secrets. Good personality person is harder to blow up your secret.

I think one can't generalise.It is a matter of particular nature of people .It may be a man or woman. I kno men & women both of nature of saying everything to people. I have also seen woman gaurding secrets very well.So i think one can't generalise.

I think it is pretty even for both. I think you can find trust in both but not everyone of them. I hate gossip and I am very choosie when I tell someone something. I never tell anything to anyone that I do not want repeated. I only tell my husband my secrets.

Hi Subathra u r general opinion is same that Man are more capable to keep secret rather than Women. but i personally think that its not matter of gender any more its maturity of mind, maturity if habits and personal traits of individual regardless of gender. So nowadays some gossip are being changed as life styles is getting changed too so i think u can trust ur male and female friends take care

In my estimation, women have been the secret keepers in histories past. They have had to keep their own secrets, as well as their husbands and their childrends, which seek their mothers confidence rather than their fathers.
