Can you keep a secret?

I've heard it said that if you tell someone a secret they will tell at least one person which means that if everyone who knows it tells at least one other person it won't stay a secret for very long. I must admit that I usually tell my partner who is much better at keeping secrets than I am so it probably never goes any further. If someone tells you a secret will you tell your nearest and dearest or will you keep it safe?

I can keep a secret and do even if the friendship goes south. If something really bothers me thou I tell my husband too. Like your partner he is a vault. He knows things that in truth could land some in deep trouble.

@Ithink He's never ever repeated anything I've told him (that I know of). If he did it never came back on me.

@Ithink People say that they're best people to tell a secret to because they aren't listening lol

@alien0187 It's good if you can but some secrets can be bad. I wonder how a catholic priest copes with all the stuff people share with him.

@sprite1950 I wonder how a priest can keep his own secrets.

I usually tell nobody, if they say it's a secret. Sometimes, I tell them that if it's a secret maybe they shouldn't tell me.

NO, if someone tells me a secret I keep it for myself, not even my husband will know.

@sprite1950 I know, my husband is like me, so he cannot complain if I keep a secret.

It really depends on the secret. I like to talk..so it would probably be best not to tell me!

Well, it depends on the secret. I have trouble not revealing gifts I have purchased for others, but I can keep a secret that is a serious one.

@Corbin5 If someone tell me some very juicy gossip I have to bite my tongue sometimes but if it would hurt someone I care about I would never tell.
