yes! truly women cannot hide secrets or keep it private, maybe because this is the natural behavior of being a woman. marilyn23

I think, women can keep secrets. Being a woman myself I must tell you that I am very good at keeping secrets and all y friends confide in me their deepest secrets. Obviously they trust me. And I would never let go their secrets. I had never! Things are changing fast and I have been finding men increasingly garrulous and women more focused. And I have known some women in my life who have kept secrets, even at the expense of being misunderstood.

I agree and it would be unfair to generalise like that. Have a great day.

women keeps secrets only due to fear of failure.. What i have seen and fact is if you have a news to be broadcasted then tell a woman this and a special emphasis this is s secret ... wow next moment the whole world will know this news Just try this "Tell your closest woman friend I have won a lottery of a 1m$ and keep this a secret till i get the money" And see the secret move and dance in grapewine in front of you...

There are some women, who can keep secrets, and can certainly keep them extremely well. But there are some, whom I would say can't keep secrets at all. I know this one girl, whom I doubt she knows the true definition of the word "secret". I certainly wouldn't tell anything personal to her.

Women should be able to keep secret, at least I can. On several occation, I did that. My judgement is to leave people whom I care in least possible trouble. I am endurable enough to deal with the case, though tough. Between ladies, misunderstandings are quite often ignited by spreading airs. As long as females consciously improve their qualification, I believe in business community, females should not be infeior as versus men.

I totally disagree with this master!I am a girl ,and I have a lot of secrets that I will never tell others or some certain people! Actually sometimes I do wanna tell oters somethings that they don't know about me.but I just stopped at the right time and keep it! But the majority of us can't hold their things or secrets,they themselves make it known to us!

I too am a female and it seems unfair to me too.

Yes, I agree with it that baring a very exceptions, women cannot keep 'secret'. At least I am quite sure about my better half, she find herself unable to keep the 'secrets' and she tells everything to me and probably nothing remains in her belly. Not only to me, she tells anything which happens with me to her colleagues and her parents..............LOL! May be it is 'inherent' in woman that they love to share 'secrets'.

Hi pickwick, Actually women are more talkative than man and they are ready to share everything with her close friends. May be it is the natural habit of ladies. But I think it varies in different women. Some are very open minded and can’t keep any secret but some are very strong and they can hide the secrets in any situation. I think it is applicable with the other gender also. We can see some people are not able to keep any secrets. But always the blame goes to women. Thanks for the add.

I can keep a secret though I would prefer not to have the responsibility of keeping someone else's secret. After a long time has passed it is too easy to forget and blurt something out unintentionally that may give the secret away. Some things are hard to keep under wraps indefinitely.

These days, women are also learning to keep secrets my freind. I have had many friends who were girl and they were quite good at keeping secrets. I think this is an old quote when women were not expected to work in office. They used to talk in groups at home and that in that kind of gossips, they used to say anything without thinking about the consequence! These days, it is necessary to keep secrets in office, so women are good in that work now!
