    Hell yes and I can’t wait to tell the entire Internet!!! Laughing

    I do, though. I used to have this theory that actions were like the whole “if a tree falls in the forest” thing. If I do it and nobody ever, ever knows about it except for me, then … did I even really do it?

    @Artificial-Sweetener:  LOL let’s just say I’ve had one or two deeply regrettable sexual partners in my life, and so I have 1000% committed myself to pretending they never happened. It’s been working out pretty well so far Tongue Out

    I have a private life that few people know everything about, but I wouldn’t call it “dark”… I am not unhappy to have those aspects to who I am. More “private” than “secret.” My FI and closest friends know pretty much everything about me they could possibly know (no big surprises remain), but I’m not an open book with someone on more private matters until they’ve built up trust. I keep things on a more impersonal or trivial level with acquaintances. I feel I have healthy boundaries 🙂

    I have been honored with some important secrets of others (things like someone was raped, someone had a two-week psychotic break, etc.) and they are in the vault, inasmuch as by knowing me and knowing the person, at no time will anything I ever say anything to suggest to you, a third party, that there is such a thing about the other person (except: I called the psychotic break person’s mother immediately when I saw something was really wrong with them, but I feel that was a necessary violation of their privacy since they could endanger themselves. And I did it right in front of that person, who, now recovered, does not hold that decision against me). This anonymized version I’m writing right now is about as much info as ever comes out of that vault.

    Yes. I love puppies! Wait, everyone knows that. 

    I don’t think I do.

    I selected other because I honestly don’t know…I don’t think I do?

    I have a secret so wrong and shameful that I torture myself as punishment and keep it bottled up. It’s the least I can do to myself. Sigh.

    @Artificial-Sweetener:  I made a really bad decision with an ex. Wish I could go back in time and undo it.
