I find the responses quite interesting. It looks like both men and women have some incriminating content on their computers 😛

About 40% of men and women have a secret ideal type they don’t want their partner to know about…

Overall, women seem to have more secrets than men. Concern with weight is somewhat surprising. I really don’t care what is the exact weight as long as a woman exercises and keeps herself in shape.

Also majority of women were concerned about their bank account. I wonder if that is because they spend too much…

Most women also don’t want their partners to know about their blogging activities.

The best way to keep a good relationship is to have no secrets among partners and have open honest conversations.

  1. i think the problem is that initially you keep secrets simply to decrease chances of spoiling the budding relationship. then later on, when the relationship is stable, it’s too late to reveal said secrets without it becoming a big deal etc etc..

  2. I’ve always been the this is who and what I am and you can take it or leave it.

    @ animekritik, perhaps that is why so many relationships fail if they can’t even be honest from the get go.

    I know whats on hubby’s comp and he knows whats on mine XD
