Keeping secrets...or is it glorified lying?

I have a problem with secrets. I know everyone has them and some of you may never want to know what that secret is. But, when you become a part of a relationship, be it romanticlly, friendship, or whatever...there is always a secret hidden in there somewhere. I have found only three people, excluding my family, that I can honestly say, knows everything about me. How about you all? How many people in your life knows (REALLY knows) you? And the ones that don't know you, but, call you friend, how many of them are there? This is amazing to me. I like people to know me and what I am about but, I am not going to blurt out personal information right up front. I mean, if I am asked a question, I will tell the truth...BUT, if the answer is something I have seen, done or experienced, I do not believe it is their business to what extent that entails. Am I lying to them? Or am I keeping it secret?
SO, let me phrase it this way:
1. How many people outside of your family really knows you?
2. How many people THINK they know you?
and finally:
3. How many people do you care to have know the real you? And why them?

Nobody knows all about me. And I don't know if I'll ever meet someone who I'd want to ....

probably not

My answer is the same as gemini's. People only know or 'see' what I allow them to.

I don't know all there is to know about me, so how could anyone else? With new situations I learn and change. I believe honesty is good but I am not volunteering info people do not need to know. Too much candor is indiscreet.
