Things Your Partner Doesn’t Have To Know


We’re all for sharing everything with your partner, however, there are a few things that your significant other doesn’t really have to know.


Now don’t get me wrong, honesty in a relationship is key, but that doesn’t mean you’re required to share every thought with him. Like it’s been said, if you’ve got nothing good to say, say nothing at all, we say, if you know it’s not of any importance or it might hurt the other person, do the right thing, and keep it to yourself. Here are a few things that you can keep from your partner because they are better off left unsaid.


1. You Always Go Through His Phone When It’s Left Unattended

Now this one depends on the ‘phone policy’ at home. If you’re in a relationship where phones are accessible to everyone, you probably know what’s in his inbox. However, if that’s not the case, on days when you slip up and go through his phone, keep it on the DL girl. Now you just have to figure out how to approach some concerning matters…


2. You Don’t Like His Mom’s Cooking

You know how boys and their mothers are. The only time you are allowed to complain or voice your concerns is when the parents are intrusive or disrespectful, if you don’t like his mom’s beef stew, girl, suck it up and just deal.


3. Someone Hits On You

Last night you and the ladies went out, and you got hit on, a lot. If nothing more happened, your partner doesn’t need to know. And if he’s the jealous type, DON’T bring it up.


4. At Times You Do Fake It

Don’t even think about going there. Why would you deflate his ego like that? Abort mission!


5. You Rate His Friends According To Their Hotness

The eye is a very dangerous organ and it can’t be controlled, we know. What can be controlled though is your tongue. Hold it! He doesn’t need to know how hot you think his best bud is. That is just asking for trouble.
