Do you repeat what others tell you ? What if someone was talking about your best friend and you informed them they were putting down on someone you loved and cared about , would you share what they said with your friend and why or why not ? What if your friend trusted you to repeat what was said as they said they would do this for you , then how would you feel about sharing the information ?

I have a sister in law that if you want the world to know you just tell her.. But no if it is not a harming story that would cause harm I don't tell them unless they actually come out and ask me then I won't lie and say I haven't heard anything I would tell them the truth of it but try to tell I in such a way that it wouldn't hurt so much if possible. I take no satisfaction in repeating gossip that can harm someone.

If someone is talking about a friend of mine then I will tell them cause they are my friends and I woudl want them to tell me if someone was talking about me but if someone asked me not to say anything then I would not repeat what they said. I think we should tell our friends when people are talking about them so they can know and not trust these people that might be trying to hurt them cause they are talking about them behind there back and friends do not do that to you so they should no this.

It's depend. If i find its true and it's important, i will tell her, maybe to help her to overcome it, but if its not true, I just ignore it because it will not bring any good to any of us. As a friend, I must trust my friend.

I can't tell what you are asking, Are you talking about gossip? If so then my answer is no, I try never to listen much less pass it along.

Hi samta, I think this is one of the reasons Iam not lucky with friends, I do not enjoy talking about others, If I have nothing good to say about someone I better keep my mouth shout! But people seems to talk about others just for entertainment, when they have nothing better to do they have fun talking about other's life. So since I do not like this behavior Iam not fun! Rather BORING! When someone makes a confidence to me I take it to the grave! Unless someone's life is in danger! I hope this is the begining of a good frienship, looking forward to talk to you around.

Running around repeat things that OTHERS say. Can only hurt people feelings ot hurt them. I do not think it is a good idea to do this unless it is something nice that is being said and it will not hurt anyone and only help them.

I wont talk bad about anyone unless and until they have not done anything bad to me , even if they have done something to me i wont talk anything like i wont add rumors or stories bad about them ,If someone want me to keep something confidential , will surely do it .I will by talk itself confirm that whether things to be kept confidential or not.

I for one would not share anything that I don't want other people to know. If I say something mostly it is for everyone to know. If you tell a little secret, not all your friends will keep it to themselves anyway. And I wouldn't to do one thing that would jeopardize my relationship with the other. If one wants something to be done they have to do it themselves unless they are totally incapable of doing it. cheers!!!
