"Dear Carol, my BFF spilled my secret"
I trusted a friend with a secret. I told her that I like my guy friend, but that I didn't want him to know until I was ready. She went and told him. I want to trust her because she's my friend, but I just can't.
If you have a tough time keeping a secret, you can bet the next person will, too, so beware of starting too many sentences with, "Don't tell anybody, but...." Can you tell her how you feel without being unduly harsh? Can you keep her as a friend but remember that she is not the go-to girl next time you have a burning secret?
We want to hear from you! Go here to submit questions to Carol about every sticky sitch life throws at you.
