There was a thread on here a few months ago which was full of confessions and secrets that we can't tell in real life...My secret is that I know the neighbour on one side of me is having a naughty affair with the neighbour on the other side of me. As soon and the husband goes to work and the kids go to school she's off with the single dad on the other side of me...

Has anyone else got a secret??

My cousin revealed his wife had an affair and he isn't the bio father to their 5 year old

I have a friend who used to work as an escort. I found out from her that my best friends cousin (who she absolutely idolises) used to be one of her most regular clients.

I only found out because I was on a night out with her, and my best friend and the cousin were in the same pub. Oblivious me went ahead and introduced them all to each other. I wondered why the two of them looked so horrified!

I have a major crush on another man. Today he asked for my number, i said no as im in a relationship but haven't stopped thinking about it all day. Nobody else to tell so might as well confess here

I used to work with someone who's sister had an affair with a celebrity.

Next door neighbour - I know your wife is currently away, so either you were doing the dirty last night, or you were watching porn verrrry loud

My god-daughter idolises her 'Dad' and he adores her. She isn't his. Neither of them know.

I hate that secret with a passion. Own up my dear 'friend'. I keep the secret because it is not my place to break his heart.

I found this out recently otherwise I would have refused to be her god mother.

I know my ex cheated on me and with his new woman. I doubt she knows. I would love to tell her.

My best friend was unfaithful to her now husband.when they were dating.

My boss punched his wife in the face last night. She didn't open their business up today (on busiest day of week). I have quit my job because of it. Her eye is a mess but we have been told my her to make the excuse she has an allergy.

I'm scared for her sad

My brother almost had an affair. I don't think it became physical but I think he had an EA.

Someone I know is cheating on her fiancé when his friend... Who also live with them (and her parents). She used to be a friend but we fell out because of her complete lack of any morals!

Many years ago I worked at a place where two of the partners were having an affair with each other - both married to others - and the female partner's 3rd child was actually the child of her affair partner at work and not her husband's child. The only time the male work partner got to see his child was when the lady brought the kid to the office - which she did frequently - so he could see his child.

Lizzie that happened with my old neighbour. Man went to work. Wife went out to another neighbour in her dressing gown and came back half an hour before he came home from work and got dressed. shock

Wrapdress Sat 02-Aug-14 22:32:02

Oh, here's another work related one. Worked at a different place and a lot of the people in the office were having affairs and flings with each other. Holiday party would roll around and the workers' spouses would attend the party, leading to awkwardness to the workers since so many of the workers were cheating with each other. The office's solution was to make the holiday party only for the workers and not spouses! They said it was to save money, but that really wasn't the reason.

That my ex, who dumped me yesterday, has an incredibly small penis :-)

Cabrinha Sat 02-Aug-14 22:35:00

XMIL, your son regularly uses prostitutes, whilst single and whilst married (to me).
Yes - he is an arsehole.

Coughle Sat 02-Aug-14 22:36:59

My dear friend is in an abusive relationship. She is scared to leave him because she is afraid he will fuck off to their home country and avoid paying child support, and she is a sahm to their 3 children. The abuse ranges from calling her naughty and silly in front of their children to refusing to give her pain medication after a caesarian birth. She walked to the chemist to get it herself. She is an intelligent, strong woman and it is tearing me apart that I can't help her.

Wrapdress Sat 02-Aug-14 22:38:18

I want to hear more about the small penis. How small we talking? I once saw one that was the size of a pinky finger.

iluvsummer Sat 02-Aug-14 22:42:50

My eSTRANGEd mil (56) was/is sleeping with someone who was in school with my husband and is my husbands age (34), she is still married to my fil!! I rolled around laughing when I heard that as she thinks she has morals!!

LizzieBelle Sat 02-Aug-14 22:43:07

Oh I knew this thread would be good!!

Dontgotosleep Sat 02-Aug-14 22:44:23

Brilliant thread O.P.
On of ex friends was cheated on and she knows nothing about it. Stupid bitch acts all smug, so yeah I wallowed in it. I'm a bitch. My other friends boyfriend saw her smug bitches boy friend out with another girl. However he told my friend and she told me and swore me to secrecy. I'd love to tell her though but due to the promise I made to my friend and the fact that this couple have children. I wouldn't stoop that well. Would love to see the smug smile wiped off her face though. I'd L.M.F.A.O.
Okay I wouldn't want my partner to cheat on me but them I'm not smug.
