Can’t keep secrets from your girl? Well, while that’s heartwarming, there are things that are best left unsaid for the sake of your relationship!
It’s better to have a cork in your mouth than your foot, don’t you think?
Communication and trust are the cornerstones of a healthy, happy relationship. As a couple, you should both be able to openly and honestly talk about how your day went, your fears, your past, and your plans for the future. But is that always the case?
While you may have come to a point that you are completely comfortable with your super understanding and eager listener of a girlfriend, and that you have a knee-jerk reaction to share everything with her, there are still a few things that you should be tight-lipped about.
Just like there are some things you don’t—and shouldn’t—share with the world or post on social media, there are also things that you should not tell your girlfriend *or any living soul, for that matter* because of three things: it could change the way she looks at you, it could change the way she looks at herself, and it could change the way she sees her relationship with you.
Whichever category her reaction falls into, it’s just going to be downhill from there, so better keep your mouth shut about certain things.
6 things you should never tell your girlfriend
So before you put yourself in hot water by not watching what you say, we give you a list of things that you should NEVER tell your girlfriend.
#1 She put too much salt in the casserole. Avoid finding fault in the nice things she does for you, even if it’s a glaring mistake. Whether she put too much bleach on your favorite shirt and it’s now a curious shade of gray instead of blue, or she prepared your favorite dish all wrong, don’t go around pointing all this out before even showing your appreciation for the hard work she put into hoping to please you.
#2 Her mother is a very nosy lady. Her mother might be irritating, conniving, and sneaky—she doesn’t like you even if you try your best to show your good intentions. But the thing is, to her, her parents are the best, kindest people ever. If you tell her anything negative about her parent or any member of her family, she will always be on their side, so better keep your thoughts to yourself.
#3 You cheated on your ex. Okay, you were a douchebag in the past and made a lot of mistakes you’re not proud of. But now you have a girlfriend and a clean slate, so don’t bring up your past indiscretions, or you’ll leave her doubting your fidelity and the relationship all the time.
#4 We used to go to this place. Another big no-no to tell your girl is the nitty-gritty of what was great about your past relationship. Even if she asks about it, it’s all a ploy, so you better keep your lips sealed. Likewise, don’t talk about how your last relationship sucked.

#5 Gary has been seeing another woman. It’s common for many couples to share juicy gossip about their friends. Often, men are as much of a gossiper as any woman. However, it’s totally uncool to share about your friend cheating on his wife or girlfriend because she might end up not liking your friends and not wanting you to hang out with them.
#6 I want my mommy. Women like to see their men as independent, capable beings. So when you tell your girl that you are still dependent on your parents, especially your mom, it *drastically* changes the way she looks at you. Although every adult guy depends on his parents for something, you shouldn’t admit this to your girlfriend.
