Is it weird that I don't tell anyone about using this website? I try to post as little information as possible but on Twitter, Facebook, & YouTube I post alot of stuff about me. I feel kind of guilty that I hide this website and not the rest. Am I the only person who feels like this?

No, of course not. I feel the same way, as do a lot of people. I don't usually tell people that I use this site because then they will know about all the things I do that I don't like to share. However, a few of my close friends know, but nobody besides them.

No, I feel the same way. I don't tell anyone about TH.

I'll say that it is probably for the best. What you post here about yourself is sensitive information. And it could be dangerous if it gets into wrong hands. So it is better not to advertise your being here. And being anonymous means that you can talk about things that have ben troubling you without any fear.

Fun fact, only about two of my friends know about this site, and those that do know it only as 'that site I go to sometimes'. Honestly, it doesn't matter at all if you tell people or not. If you don't tell people then you don't tell them, you have your reasons and that is all that matters

Women are women, regardless of sex,
and men are men, in the same respects.

You can be both, or a mix of the two,
or you can be neither, if that's what suits you.

But people are people, whatever their parts,
because what really matters, is inside of our hearts.

The only friends that know I use this site, I met on this site

It's perfectly normal and is the norm, to not advertise you're on the site. Why? Because its for your safety that you can vent or seek help that otherwise would be embarrassing in real life if you're friends knew about it. So, its up to you how you want to open up, but for the most part, its pretty normal not to advertise the usage of the site

It's normal that you hide this website. I have a select few people who know about it, but for the most part this site is private to me.

It's totally normal to be anonymous on this site. I have one friend who knows about it, but no one knows my username. It feels safer for me to ask for help anonymously, and it's easier to open up if people don't know you.

I'd say it's normal. Like 2 or 3 of my closest friends know I'm here, but only one actually knows which website because I blabbed it to her once. They already know everything though, and other than them, the only people that know I use this site are the other users here.

Only my best friend knows I use this site. She was the one that actually introduced me to it two years ago.

Its not weird at all. Some of us tell are parents different things.
I know my parents at first didn't know I used the site, didn't know anything about it.
Now they do know what it is, they know i'm here, they know I volunteer, they also know I reach out for help sometimes.

Trust me its not weird at all. Its just some people like things to be more private then others.
