Do you love spilling the beans?

Our lives, obviously is not a secret. What's probably happening to other people in other parts of the world might be happening to us little by little. If that's the case, why are we still so intrigued about the lives of other people or why do some of us has the itch to tell more than what's expected about themselves? Do you, like myself, somehow feel a little awkward when someone is telling you about their lives even if you didn't ask? I often find myself in this situation,. I'm the quiet type and I don't talk a lot but I always find myself infront of someone I barely knew who's telling me more than what I needed to hear. And it makes me uncomfortable. :(

I think that people who share their personal details with strangers don't have close friends to talk to. I like sharing parts of my life with my closest family members and a couple of my friends. They are the people I trust the most and they can help me with every difficult decision I must take.

now that you've mentioned it, I did notice that those people who always tell me their secrets are lonely and they can't commit to anyone. Their friendships are mostly superficial and they are always alone no matter how many people they surround themselves with.

@slayer08 There are many lonely people around us. The true and deep relationships and friendships need effort and I think that some people don't know how to commit to others.

lucky for you. I'm a little prejudiced haha so whenever I meet someone and suddenly learn something bad they're doing I feel not only terrible but it only strengthens my mistrust for other people and then I can't stop thinking about it sometimes. So I, as much as I love to know someone better, I take my sweet time because that's the only way I get comfortable enough to learn about other people's secrets. I meant, don't you think you need a little foundation (especially in friendship) before you tell your deepest secrets?

some people choose to share their stories right away, which is fine with me. its their life secrets anyway, not mine. but really, maybe because some of them needed someone to listen to them, they wanted to let it out right then and there. we never assume what theyre going through.. try to listen to them (but of course, only when you have time ) now, if you heard something bad about the person, its not right for us to judge also. especially if we havent seen any of it.

good for you,. but I meant this not for myself but others who keep telling me their secrets. I'm good at keeping one and I usually just forget it anyway,. but sometimes I hope they stop telling me their secrets.

I believe so. I just sometimes wish it's not me who they choose to tell their secrets to - especially secrets about their relationship. but thanks, maybe I really just need to remind myself to bear with it.

I like and want to know about others. When people I know personally talk, it always sounds way too familiar like they are telling me my own story. That's why I like reading the posts here on myLot about the "Ten Things about me" (them) I find them interesting and they let me know about them and their past and things in general that I don't always get to read in the posts.
