Confusion....

What IS an "actual secret?"

Obviously, not this, because this is a question.

Yeah, I agree. I just meant that sometimes there are secrets that are secrets...but have resulting problems that may also need advice. Like....you cheated on someone, I guess. And you need to get it off your chest, but you also need someone to tell you what to do. o.e You know? D: Ah, I hope I make sense. Sleepy. </3

Well, when they say "help me what can I do?" or "should I tell someone" that generally means they are seeking out advice, ones that don't require advice would be genuine secrets that people just want to get off their chest.

That definitely makes sense, yes. A lot of secrets just need to be vented out and stuff. Some people, I guess, need advice for how to deal with their secret. If it's eating them up inside, if it's actually a secret problem, or something that is secret because they have no one else to tell...yet they still need someone to talk to about it.

It does bring up an interesting point, though. Everyone talking about how ST should be a place for advice and stuff again...but as you said, not all secrets require advice or even ask for it...only comments if the comments aren't 'disabled.'

Okay, I see the phrase being tossed around a lot, and just wondered what exactly you guys meant by it. From what I can tell, real secrets wouldn't require advice.

Comments, maybe. advice, no.

Questions, conundrums, sticky situations, those often warrant advice.

It depends. A "secret" can mean many things, at least in my opinion. It really just depends if you mean in general or a more indepth definition.

Something you can't tell anyone you are close to, no matter what.

Something you can't tell anyone else, I would think. That's not a Webster definition, just my opinion.
