Obviously two partners shouldn’t be hiding stuff from each other, especially two people who are monogamous and intimate. However, your partner doesn’t need to know your every single waking thought and moment, believe it or not. There are some things that your partner won’t tell you at all — or won’t tell you unless asked — and that’s OK. A little mystery never hurt the romance — and by mystery I mean mystery, not infidelity, addiction, money problems, or other huge relationship no-nos. The two of you should act as a unit, but this doesn’t mean the two of you should lose your identities within each other. Think of it this way: if you forget who you are, how can you still be the amazing person your partner fell for? Makes sense.
Here are some secrets your partner isn’t telling you, and that’s OK.
1. They Got Hit On Today
Do you really need to know about every wink and longing look? No. If you do, you’re insecure and controlling. All that counts is your partner didn’t cheat on you, emotionally or physically.
2. They Had an Issue at Work
This only matters if your partner is about to get laid off or happened to be fired . . . or perhaps if your partner really messed up at work. Even still, your partner may not tell you right away or at all until the issue really affects his or her job status. Why? Well, pride, essentially. He or she may feel disappointed as it is, so to disappoint you as well? That can be crushing.
It’s All Good,
