I have seen and read that girls maximum threshold to hold a secret is 15 minutes.Why is it so?Is it god's gift or something else?? There are many mythological stories that supports this fact. Of course there will be some exceptions,in boys who have this whistle blower habit!! So your opinion on this fact and how long can you hold secrets!!

The malaise may be common to both, boys as well as girls. With no end or recourse to gossiping, one may be assured to find his/her 'secrets', becoming common talk, among folks.

@Novelangel lol. But I have found gossip run around fast with women.As compared to men.So saying your secret to a woman is deadly!!

@Novelangel I have a few male,'friends', to whom, if you open out a secret, see to it, that it becomes the topic of the street corner.I'd say, some males are worst gossipers, than females!

it depends on the intensity or seriousness of the secret but if you do not want your secret to be shown to the world, don't tell it to any soul

@lady1993 you are right.To save from embarrassment hide the secret from everybody.Even in deadly situation don't let it your secret known to a girl,then you will be safe.It's not what I say,researchers found out it.

@mkrnex bringing the secret to your grave... it is hard though, since humans are usually itching to share their secrets all the time

I know plenty of men I wouldn't trust a secret to. Personally, I like it when people tell me something they don't want me to tell anyone else. I feel as if they trust me and I don't want to betray their trust. Also, I enjoy knowing something that others don't know.

Ya in men too , there are gossipers. But it is few as in comparison to the women. But those few men are too dangerous.

When our granddaughter was little, I told her not to tell her grandpa what his Christmas gift was. She indignantly told me that she was a "good not-teller." And she was! She never revealed secrets so I think females are better at that.

So, this fact fact might not be a exact thing. But in general women are weak in keeping secrets than men. There will be exceptions in both sides. As your little girl kept a secret. The problem is basically among the grown ups I guess who want to gossip!!

@mkrnex I guess it is different with grown-ups. When our grandson was little, he would tell everything! Even tell on himself if he did something wrong.

@1creekgirl I too would say eveything, I mean every small thing to my mother when I was a kid. Whereas my sister was a secret kind of girl. After I grew up ie now , it has changed. I keep secrets, don't tell much of the thing. While my sister tells almost everything! I don't know how it changed? I guess just happened!

i know and i agree with what you say even though im a girl. anyway im good in keeping secrets even though i prefer that people dont tell me their secrets. i just feel bad in hiding things. dont ask me why but i really dont like it. its a signal that the person trusts me and i wont let the person down but i dont like it

One reason is you may feel the hypocrisy of the other people. That is dual facet they have. Another thing is you have lose your peace in trying to hide the secrets that you know.

@mkrnex yes i just dont feel ok to know something that other people dont know. its not that i have to lie to them also but is complicated for me. i rather not know also so that way i wont feel bad about hiding it. but sure if someone tells me something and asks me not to tell i wont tell.

haha indeed when someone shares a secret with you, you are tempted to tell it to someone else. I guess it's a matter of how much you respect the person who told you that secret in the first place

@swissheart I agree but sometimes some are fueled by their habit of whistle blowing that they them self will not know when they ratted out the secret

@mkrnex at the same time before doing such things we should consider the fact that we wouldn't want our own secrets to be shared with anybody else.

I can keep a secret forever. Mostly because I forget it as soon as It's told to me! Well, it depends what the secret is, and for whom I'm keeping it. If it's someone important to me then I'll keep the secret. If it's someone not that important, I'll probably still keep the secret because I'll have no reason to be talking about that person or imparting their secrets! My partner is great with secrets as he's also very forgetful! Saying that, he's likely to forget that something is a secret!
