Do you have secrets in your past that nobody (or very few) people in your life know?

Question: Do you have a big secret in your life that no one knows about?


Yes, I keep a lot of things to myself. No-one knows everything about me

I have someone I confide in (my best friend, my SO, my sibling) but a lot of secrets in general, yes

Not really. I have a few, but nothing big

I'm an open book. I don't want or need to keep secrets

When I was a teenager I ran away, a lot.

When I was 20 I got a job working for a modeling agency who pushed their talent to do pornography and work for an escort service between gigs (no, I wasn't a model, I'm way too short, but I was cute and thin and look like a teenager, I worked at the front desk)

I partied a lot, hung out with some real losers, and got pretty heavily into drugs.  I experimented a lot with sex.

I even worked as an escort a few times,and did hook up with a client or 2, but never had sex for money or anything. We were never required to have sex with clients for money (but if the guy was nice, or we liked him,  we usually did anyway)  Probably not anything that would shock most of the people on here.  Typical party girl stuff.

I am not in contact with anyone from that stage in my life now.  I have moved hundreds of miles away.  

My husband knows I have a wild past, but doesn't know any details about that time in my life, neither does my family.  Every now and then I kind of wish I could talk to someone about all that, but it's in the past and doesn't really matter anymore, so I keep it my deep dark secret.

Do you have a secret past? Do you have stages of life that noone at all knows about?

I ran away a lot to.
My brother raped me when he was on some type of drug like ecstasy... I don't talk to him anymore and no one not even DH knows about that.
My son may not be my exes he and I broke up for a bit and towards the end of our split I really
Liked this guy and thought our relationship was going to go somewhere I had sex with him but then he made it clear that it was a one night stand and then my ex and I had a long talk the next day and we got back together and had sex that night and that weekend is the weekend I conceived my son looks kinda like both but my ex knows and doesn't care our son is his regardless.

My husband doesn't know that I killed someone or how fucked up was my childhood neither. He only knows that I used to go to parties and drink a lot but that's it. We've been married for 24 years, I don't plan telling him anything about that ever.

I am a (mostly) open book except for a few things that I don't share with just anyone because they are not things that come up in conversation, nor are they appropriate to discuss with certain people. Some of our lifestyle choices are not really accepted or easily understood so I just reserve that for discussion with my closest friends :)

My biggest secret right now is that I have a boyfriend and I smoke weed, only at night to calm down and mellow out.

Told my bestie, beyond that I will take this shit to my grave.
