Could Sharing Relationship Details With Friends Be Dangerous?
We all share TMI with our girlfriends from time to time. Whether it's about sex, fitness, embarrassing moments or those texts from your latest hook-up that you need analyzed by the experts (a.k.a your bffs). But fun and flirty hook-ups aside, when it comes to dating someone serious, could over-sharing your relationship details with your gal pals signal a big red flag? We live in an age where sharing is something we do everyday. We share online all the time and have people constantly keeping updated with our daily lives. But when you are in a relationship that you know is different from the rest, you begin to realize why things should stay personal and private. You and your partner become a team, and force that is separate from your friend groups. Part of being on this team is having respect for keeping issues, dirty details and intimacy between just the two of you. As I have grown into my longterm relationship, I am inclined to share less and less about my partner. I have no need to try and "analyze" his behaviour with friends, or share things I know will embarrass him and break our trust. Perhaps a need to analyze relationship behaviours and issues with friends could signal something is up if you don't feel comfortable addressing it with your partner. Direct communication only strengthens relationships, it does not damage them. Do you agree? Do you feel more comfortable keeping relationship details private or sharing with friends?
