If it were only that simple in the world. If only we could always tell the truth. If only no one reacted or even cared about our true selves! But unfortunately we do live in the real world where people have thoughts and feelings.
Women especially are taught to hide them.
Here are five things that nearly all of us keep secret….
The universal stereotype is that men are afraid of commitment. Many of them are, but the counter-assumption is that women are never afraid of commitment, are always ready for it, and that simply isn’t true. Girls just tend to keep it a secret — and to deal with it, by expressing it, discussing it, and coming to understand it.
Most women including myself keep their weight a secret, even from their spouses. Doctors know, and that’s about it. No matter what your weight or your body type, it can just be exceedingly difficult to make that revelation to anyone, even the people you love the most. There’s an insecurity there, a fear of judgment or recrimination. Simply put, it can be awful.
With the exception of a few escaped childhood pictures, guys may never know what their girlfriends and wives look like with their natural hair color. If your girlfriend colors her hair, you’ll just have to use your imagination. I’m guilty of this. I hide under hats when my roots start to show. It’s not so much that I’m ashamed of my natural color, I just couldn’t wait for the color to completely fade.
Hating High Heels
Although this is by no means true for every woman, a lot of the girls I talked to, and I myself, were in agreement about their hatred of high heels. They wear them a lot, but they’ll rarely admit it because they know it’s illogical and that they could be wearing something more comfortable.
A lot of the women I talked to copped to faking orgasms some of the time. I admit to this one myself — and never told. It’s not that you don’t want to be honest with your partner, but sometimes it depends on the partner. You never want to hurt your lover, but it’s great when you can get your relationship that open.
