I'm a private person in general and very guarded with what I tell people about myself. In real life, that is. Online I'm far more open.
What I generally do is I tell different people different things about myself, so I always have a go-to person if I have problems that deal with that aspect of my life. i don't really like anybody having the whole picture if I can avoid it... don't know why. I'm hoping to change that.
i only open up with the people who open up with me...and those are the closest people to me but sometimes i like to keep things for myself too....and whenever i feel person lost interest to listen i just stop talking...i have a problem with trusting people
Also Known As: Tally,Arrow..do not call me Broken for the love of God
I tell everything on a need to know basis. I don't feel like the majority of people need to know everything about me. I generally only tell people things if I feel they ought to know about and feel comfortable sharing the information. Online is ok, but of course, I dont tell people everything about myself here either, as it's not always safe sharing info online, so I share what I feel comfortable sharing and is safe to share.
I can be quite open, but I'm not very trusting. I am fine with giving information where I will be judged, but not when it's very important to me. I like privacy and I don't like to announce things on social networks.
I never open up to anyone, not even my parents (which annoys them greatly).
Though I don't keep secrets if they are mine, if someone asks I will answer truthfully (granted they have to know what to ask for, a vague question gets a vague response). Secrets given to me are perfectly safe though, mostly because I can never gain more than I lose by revealing (trust is important in my line of work and social status)
Edit* I am much more likely now adays to confront almost anyone, the whole loner thing is dreadfully lonely and boring. I'd much rather try my chances meeting everyone, you can't make friends unless the first hello is initiated.
I'm (apparently) notoriously closed and guarded in real life, with my friends often making jokes about how secretive I am. Whether they are sincerely criticizing my apparent 'wall of silence' in regards to my personal life or not, it frustrates me that they perceive me to be so closed off about my life. Although I don't like sharing my emotions in real life, I'm nowhere as cold as they perceive me to be. It's because they don't really care about my life that I don't choose to anything about it. If they want to cover up their own failures by blaming it on me, so be it.
In the internet, however, I am far more open about my life, whether people care or not. Of course, there are darker aspects of me that I do not wish to share to anyone but my closest friends, which I think is quite reasonable, don't you?
With my friends, I am super open. Probably actually an over-sharer, but whatever, doesn't bother me haha. With people I know but I'm not friends with, idc about them, so obviously I have no interest in telling them anything. When I meet new people, I usually let them know a fair bit about me, it makes conversation way more interesting then over-generalised small talk, which is the worst.
