do you always tell your closest friends what happens in your relationships?

not always for me. i am a talk-person and when i start my chatter, none of my frinds can stop me. however i still leave some privacy for my relationship. apart from the purpose of privacy, it is for me a way of showing respect to my partner. this belief of mie was affrimed today when someone trusted me with something she wouldn't tell her close friends. i perfectly understand her, not that she doesn't trust her friends but she values and loves her family foremost.

I'd have to say no not really. There are some things I tell my friends but not everything. Like my husband and I had a issue where I wanted to end the relationship and put him out of the house. My friend still doesnt know abou that even though she knows the reason why him and i were going through issues.

I do sometimes tell my friends about my relationship with my boyfriend but not all the time.. I only share something that are funny, romantic, crazy stuff and some fight/misunderstanding.. But I am not telling them detailed only some points.. Well, same as you when I started talking I will talked and talked until I feel tired and until I can saw my friends are also tired of listening to me .. Sometimes, they asked me to stop for a while so that they can process all the things I've told them.. Actually, my boyfriend also get irritated with me because of my story telling.. When i started to tell a story or even to talked it won't stop until I feel tired.. He will just listen to me.. But sometimes when I'm not in a good mood no matter what topic they will start to talked I won't talked I'll just listed to them.. So, my friends really hates me when I'm not in good mood because they said that I'm such a beast.. I easily get irritated and get mad..

There are some things that I might tell my friends about my relationship, but I don't tell them everything, as there are some things that are very personal or that you don't really tell your friends.

Well, just the general things. When it comes to problems in our marriage, unless I really need support or advice, then I won't tell anybody since it's our private matters. BUT maybe in some cases I may tell my friends about this after the problem's solved.

i used to tell my friends everything that happens in my relationship. i mean, EVERYTHING! but then, my bf found out and most of my friends see him differently. he's not this very wonderful guy that i liked and see in him before i spoke to them about our relationship. so i stopped. i keep some of what happens to our relationship between the two of us. you still can't help talking to your friends about your relationship especially if you're happy or sad! i think we should leave some to ourselves...:)

hi lrglara. that's the problem when we talk about our partners in front of other people because they either get the wrong impression about the other person or our friends judge them based on the way we talkk about him. somehow i think that's very unfair for the partners. however i say that sharing menial things wouldn't hurt that much. more friendly talks later!
