Think of your one bestest friend in the whole wide world.
I’m curious (mainly bored lol) to know:
Do you REALLY tell your best friend/girlfriend EVERYTHING?
Say, about your relationship with your BF/SO/FI/DH? Like fights? What about private stuff? Like having sex? Is there a line that you don’t cross when it comes to telling your BFF things? Is your BFF in a relationship too (have a BF/SO/FI/DH)?
I’ve known my BFF for about 10-11 years now. I do sometimes tell her about things between my SO and I, but there are some things I choose not to say. My BFF has never had a BF ever, so sometimes I don’t feel comfortable talking to her about certain things lol.
Ready, set, go!

There are some things that should never leave your relationship. I used to way over share before I got serious with my now husband, and it usually came back to bite me.

Some things are really personal and I wouldn’t share those. If something funny happened though, I’d share that and they’d laugh.
I don’t share with my friends that my SO and I had a fight until it’s over. I’ve found that a lot of friends put fuel on the fire instead of trying to calm it down. Not worth the extra drama. Sometimes I share that we had a fight afterwards if I want to talk about the conclusion of the fight with them.

I’ve been bff with my bestie for about 15 years, and I still dont share absolutely everything with her, there are some things that are just too personal too tell.

Abbbbsolutely. I tell my BFF absolutely everything. From the last time I had sex, to my last raunchy fart.
We’re conjoined at the hip (Long distance, too!) And we always enjoy hearing each other’s silly (And gross!) adventures.

My husband is my best friend, but there are things I don’t tell him. There aren’t many secrets, but there are a few, and if a friend tells me something in confidence I don’t blab it to DH.

No, but I don’t realy have a best friend either. I’ve never really been a best friend kind of person. I have different friends with different functions I guess you’d say? There are some I share lots of things with and some that I don’t share much of anything with.

I don’t tell my bff everything because it’s my sister and she does NOT need to hear about sex! I do tell her about farting and my day to day minutiae… I do not call my girlfiends up to “chat.” We get together for brunch or go out for drinks occasionally.

Pretty much. The only time I might not be 100% open is if I’m upset with DH or we fought or something. I might tell her, but I’ll try not to paint him in too bad a light/over vent. I don’t want someone getting the wrong impression about my DH just because I’m trying to blow off steam, I think that can get dangerous.

Absolutely not. My husband is my true best friend. What happens in our relationship stays in our relationship. Fights are never discussed with anyone else. My loyalty to my husband is paramount.
Very early in our marriage (we waited until then to have sex) I did discuss with her (best friend) how my body was handling sex, but that was in the category of “girl stuff”, not my relationship. I told her nothing about how my husband’s performance/size/etc.

Totally. We met when we lived in the same state– which was only for about 9 months!– and now 6 years of long distance friendship later (and countless plane trips) we are still totally over-share-y bffs. We definitely talk about everything from stupid stuff, to fights, to sex stuff, to medical stuff– totally everything. But, I think it helps that we don’t just nod/agree with everything the other says or does. So there is no “stoking the fire” so to speak in regards to fights we’re in with our husbands. If I think she’s wrong I’ll tell her, and vice versa. I think we keep each other honest because we both trust the other’s opinion a lot. Also our husbands are friends and we both really like the other’s husbands… so I feel like that really helps that there aren’t really any touchy issues like if she didn’t like my husband or something.

My DH is my best friend, so yes. My best girl friend, eh, most everything. There are just some thing that I don’t think to tell her, but if she asked, yeah I prob would. We only get together once a month or so, we have better things to talk about than the nifty gritty stuff.

It depends on the friend. I’d probably say I have 2 best friends. I share mostly everything with both of them.
But 1 girl I share all my sex talk with and my artsy side.
The other one I share my insecurities, anxiety, and “serious” relationship stuff.
Nothing against either one of them, they are just 2 totally different personalities and relate to me in totally different ways.

I tell my best friend quite a bit…But there are a few things I can think of that I haven’t ever told her. Nothing big though. Now, my FI is actually like my very very very best friend, but I don’t tell him everything either. I mean, sometimes there are certain things you prefer to talk to a girl about. LOL

We used to tell eachother everything; not so much anymore. For some reason she has become kinda secretive since getting with her new husband. Sad.
