Here are the things you really should not be telling
that your boyfriend or girlfriend if you intend to keep the relationship

Of course, very relationship should be
built on trust; but there’s a limit to openness and there exist things
your partner does not really need to know.
In essence, it’s OK to cut down on openness in
a relationship from 100% to somewhere in the region of 90% or so. And
here’s the reason: some people really just can’t handle the truth. It
does not make them bad people or bad partners; they’re not just wired to
be calm or stay sane in the face of certain revelations.
So instead of risking something beautiful over
an inconsequential detail that’ll likely not hurt anyone if forever
locked away in a vault, just keep mum and continue coasting with the
love of your life.
Here are 7 times when it’s OK to leave some things unsaid;
No one needs graphic details of your sexual past. Keep it. [Credit : Onedio]
1. Your sexual history
For real, not many boyfriends/girlfriends want
to hear the step by step narration and graphic details of how you had
sex in a bathroom stall at the mall with your ex or some random babe.
2. Your body count
As we already discussed in detail here, for the ladies, only your doctor and/or gynecologist deserves this information.
3. That someone at work [or anywhere] has a crush on you
Really, this is literally opening the door for
problems no one wants. Here’s the thing about revealing this
information – you put your partner in a position to have his imagination
roam and become paranoid.

4. That you have a crush on someone else
Being genuinely in love with a man or woman
does not magically take away the inclination to be attracted or to fall
in love with other people.
5. That you don’t like their parents
I’m not sure anyone wants to hear her boyfriend say he does not like her mum. Neither is there any guy who would stand for that.
The only time this may be OK is when you no longer value the relationship and you’re willing to let go of it.

6. That you snooped through their stuff
Even if you searched and found out that they’ve been loyal and loyal to you, keep the good news to yourself.
There really is no way to justify snooping
through his stuff in the first instance. You’re going to come off as
distrustful and things may just go downhill from there. Better keep the
info to yourself.
7. That you still stalk his ex
Ladies, your boyfriend does not need to know
that you have been stalking his ex on social media. You’ll come off as
insecure and you don’t need that.
Same thing goes for guys. You really so not want to give off the vibe of insecurity. Your babe does not need that.
