    Should a woman always tell the truth to her man?  Are you always upfront....and did it cost you a relationship.  Does he get you all the time?

      No, because their certain instances that you need to lie this are called white lies. To refrain from misinterpretation from the guys.

    If people are very close to each other they haven't secrets. Relationship means trust. So no secrets. Of course if it's not secret of someone else.

      It depends on the quality of your relationship. I have found keeping secrets from my husband impossible.  I just have to tell him everything, and i am more comfortable when I do it.  we just like to relax in each others company and don't have to watch what we say. we have known each other for a little less than twenty years and it has worked wonderfully for us.

      well i believe you have a right to have secrets. after all, there are things in my life that i would like to keep just for me. I think my sig other should have some things that he has just to himself as well. keep some mystery ladies......

    I believe in the sincerity as a basic value to build a healthy relationship. Being honest means to get naked and lay the foundations for a constructive relationship: away all the masks! Away all fears! Away the shame!

    Well, I believe in being honest and that relationships are based on trust; but I don't think keeping a few things to oneself means not being honest or worthy of trust (or trusting).   Besides, especially if you're young and in a relationship with someone else young; you may be shocked to discover your secrets being shared the minute you try to break up with the person and s/he gets mad at you.   hmm  That doesn't necessarily mean not trusting the person now, or even thinking you won't be able to trust him one day.  It's just a matter of good sense.  I don't think the person you're in a relationship with ought to share some things either.  hmm   ..but that's just me.

    If you try being honest you might be surprised - things I've worked myself up to say have made my hubby laugh. smile

      My thing has nothing to do with any fears or shame.  That's for sure.  It's just about keeping what isn't someone else's business, and what is my business, to myself.   (For example, like who I dated before; or any number of other things that should be of no consequence to someone I'm with now.)

        I guess it does depend. I've been with my hubby five years and we know most things about each other.

        Although I've been lucky in that my two longest relationships have both been with males who don't blab - in fact getting them to talk is the hard part!

        We have several similarities I find - except that I DO NOT look like a cat that has been run over by a truck.

    "Should a woman always tell the truth to her man?  Are you always upfront....and did it cost you a relationship.  Does he get you all the time?"

    I would rephrase this as:

    Should a person always tell the truth?  Are you always upfront....and did it cost you a relationship?  Does your spouse "get" you all the time?"

    As to what the answer is, I'm not going there. smile

    Honesty is a funny thing , too much is not good , not enough is the same. Peronal stuff is best kept to yourself.  Shared honesty is a good thing. Learning how much honesty is right is a life long mission.......
