Many people keep the intimate details of their romantic relationships very private. For the most part, what happens within the confines of our relationships is sacred to us, except when we are communicating with our closest friends. We've all confided in our friends about our partner at some point.
While it is therapeutic to talk to someone outside of your relationship, sometimes we give away TMI. It's important to remember that friends aren't neutral parties. Your friend is always going to have a bias that leans in your favor even if you've done something wrong. When it comes to your romantic relationship, there are certain things that you are better off keeping to yourself.
Details about what happens in the bedroom.
We've all discussed our bedroom antics with our friends, and there's nothing wrong with that. The problem occurs if you go into great detail about your partner.
Your partner's personal issues.
Your partner's personal issues are none of your friend's business, PERIOD! It's totally disrespectful to disclose personal problems that your lover is having to your friends.
Anything your partner tells you in confidence.
You're loyal to your partner, especially when what they tell you shouldn't be shared with anyone else. Betraying your lover's trust in this way is guaranteed to cause trouble in a relationship because your partner won't feel comfortable confiding in you.
About every disagreement.
This will cause your friends to disapprove of your partner. Disagreements happen in relationships. As long as they don't turn verbally, physically, or emotionally abusive keep them between you and your partner.
The premeditated breakup.
If you aren't happy with your relationship and are contemplating leaving your partner, refrain from telling your friends before you have a chance to communicate it with your partner. This could lead to some awkward situations if that information gets back to your partner.
