Top Secrets to Take to the Grave

This month we asked you to dig deep and share your darkest memories—the secrets you promised to take to the grave. Some secrets were kept from siblings (“Made out with my brother’s girlfriend” –Oh_Skinny), others from strangers (“Bar alias: Vanessa. Hometown: Birkenshire, England.” –FKA_Liza). Feelings were kept inside (“‘I’m fine’ is a cold lie.“-Margar3t) and shared too soon (“Tattooed secret: temporary lover, permanent reminder.” –CanadaGoose).  But, there are some secrets that even we don’t want to know (“What I wear to type sixes.“-DynamicDbytheC).
