Relationships are based on trust. If you love someone, you should be 100 percent open and honest with them. Well, more like 95 percent. They don't need to know everything! Here are some things your partner doesn't need to know.
Why should your partner know the steamy details of your past? They don't want to know about the wild positions you tried with your ex. They don't need to know about that time you had sex in the closet of a bar. When it comes to the details of your sexual past, the less they know, the better.
Don't tell them your sex number. If your number is low, they will have opinions about it and if it's high, they may judge you. They don't need to know your number and you don't need to know theirs. You don't want to know theirs, believe me.
A little crush is perfectly fine, if you keep your distance. And while it's fine, the worst thing you could do is tell your partner about it. You will plant a seed that doesn't need to grow. There is no harm in crushing from afar, so don't rock the boat.
Don't let them know if you have any fantasies that don't involve them. You could hurt their feelings. Make them think that all of your fantasies are about them if you want to live. I mean, if you want to be in a healthy relationship.
Why does your significant other need to know that you threw yourself in front of your ex's car when they tried to break up with you? Why do they need to know that you called your ex and hung up everyday for a month when you broke up? They don't need to know, so don't tell them.
They need to know that you are alive and that is everything is okay. That is all they need to know. They don't need to know where you are at every waking moment. You may want to tell them everything, but they don't need to know it.
If you tell them about a splurge, you will never hear the end of it. Forget ever getting them to give you a dime ever again. It's better that they never ever know the details of your big purchases. And keep them away from Sex and the City so Carrie doesn't ruin it for you either.
You sent your friends his dick pic when you didn't think that the relationship was going to go anywhere. He doesn't need to know that you did that. They don't need to know the dirt you spill to your friends. They will feel insecure around your friends if they know how much you share.
An ex caught your eye online, and you did a little snooping. So what! Why would you tell your partner that? They may feel jealous and it didn't mean anything to you at all. You can do whatever you want on your own time just as long as it doesn't effect your relationship.
You should be able to tell them any concerns that you may have when it comes to their family, but you have to tread lightly. Be gentle and hint. Let them say how annoying their mom is. You shouldn't be the one to do it.
If you did a little snooping you need to look inward. Why did you snoop? Do you not trust them? Can they not trust you? If you did snoop, don't tell them. They will use it against you for the rest of your relationship and rightfully so. And stop snooping!
Telling them that you know everything about their ex will ruin everything. They don't need to know that you know where they are now and who they are dating. They don't need to know that because of Facebook you know about their new job and how they celebrated their birthday. Save yourself and don't say a word.
