When someone tells me something in confidence that is where it stays. Have you ever betrayed a friend who has confided in you?

no I haave never betrayed a friend...I have such a high concept of friendship I cannot even imagine me doing something like this..but I had to face with the bad reality of my friends betraying me many times..this is not a good period for me as friendship is concerned...however I still think that friendship is one of the best things we have on earth and I am sure that a good friend is our treasure..I like being the one my friend can rely on...I like being there for him or her when he or she needs and I like listening when they need me the most..secret is important when confidence is concerned..it is fundamental

I have been betrayed many times in my life. But I have always been very carful not to betray anyone who has confided in me. I'm quite proud of myself in a way. I had a friend that betrayed me and wouldn't even speak to me for a while. She speaks to me now and seems to be making feeble attempts at friendship..again. I know something about her that she told me in confidence. I have kept to myself through it all. And I will hold it till my dying day even though we are not really friends anymore. I would never intentionally betray anyone.

I have never ever done that. I do not gossip, and I do not tell anything that has been told to me in confidence.

I would never betray a friend who confided in me... It's a breach of trust. I wouldn't want that to happen to me... I've had people betray me by spreading rumors behind my back and these were people that I trusted my innermost secrets to. Sigh. There was one time though where I was told something (not a biggie though) and I said it to someone else. I don't really consider it a betrayal because I was just trying to help. (Lol.) Here's the story, my friend confided in me and told me the reason why she was splitting up with her boyfriend... and I decided that I had to tell the guy since I felt that my friend just needed someone to help her out... At least after the talk, the guy was able to win my friend back... nice thing is, they're both happily married... My friend thanked me for doing that because if I didn't, they would've probably broken up... =)

Many years ago I told a friend something in complete confidence. She was so quick to spread the news. I vowed never to betray a friend who confides in me.
