Is there somebody who knows everything about you?

Asked by boxer3 (4150points) October 18th, 2011

There are a few people in my life that know a significant amount about me: my parents, my roommate, a couple of really close friends….

but I have one best friend that knows litterally just about everything about me, in all aspects of my life. The most embarrassing, shameful, pleasent, happy, awkward things about me, she knows. I’ve known her since I was born, and we’ve only grown closer over the years. We live in different states but we talk all the time and never having “nothing” to fill the other one in on.

Do you have a friend, family member, or someone else in your life that knows pretty much everything about you? Do you wish you did if you don’t, and are you thankful for them if you do?

I’m thankful knowing someone knows all aspects of me and loves me unconditionally as a person regardless of what I do, outside of my family ( because I also have a great family), or SO if I had one.

Do you prefer it that way, as I assume some people may?

CWOTUS's avatar

I don’t even know everything about me. (Some days I don’t think I know much at all about myself.)

boxer3's avatar

Fair enough, I get that too….

My husband knows pretty much everything there is to know about me. My sisters might know more. I’m not very secretive.

Ayesha's avatar

My friends. And I mean everything!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

No, I keep things pretty much to myself.

Ela's avatar

No. I’m usually the one that asks the questions so I find out a lot more about other people.

marinelife's avatar

No, I have several people that know different aspects of me well, but no one who knows everything about me.

Hibernate's avatar

Besides God no other mortal person knows everything about me.

Not at all!,“Never put all of your eggs in one basket” I took this saying literally when I first heard it as a kid…. :-/

blueiiznh's avatar

Nope. My little sister knows the most, but not everything.
In general, I feel I know more about others than they do about me.
I am a good listener and seem to be a confidant to many.

I have a couple of friends and a therapist that I will tell anything to. Since they have only known me for a few years, they can’t know everything, but there is no question I won’t answer should they ask it.

My wife knows a lot, but there are things she tells me she doesn’t want to know unless I think she needs to know them. Not wanting to hurt her any more than I have, I don’t tell her these things. I think I would hurt her more than she can stand, and for what? To be known? Others know me and accept me. But it does make full intimacy problematic, to say the least.

Anyway, between my friends, they know pretty much everything, but there is no one person who knows it all. In most cases, that is not because I am hiding anything. It’s because it’s just not possible to transfer all that knowledge.

I have a few friends who know pretty much everything, the good, the bad and the ugly.

smilingheart1's avatar

I hope never ALL. That would be taking the feminine mystique and making it a mistake.

gailcalled's avatar

No. There are a few things that I have kept to myself.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

My husband and my best friend. I seriously can’t think of anything they don’t know about me.

Mariah's avatar

No, nobody knows everything. I am mostly an open book but there are some things I keep private, and I prefer it that way.

Haleth's avatar

There are a few things that nobody knows about me and I will take to my grave. Otherwise my best friend knows pretty much everything.

Coloma's avatar

Yes. Myself. :-)

No, ‘cause that would suck.

My wife. We have been together for 46 years and she knows me inside out. I can start a sentence and she will finish it for me. She orders my food at Cracker Barrel and buys all my clothes. As you can tell, we are very close. One day she said to me, “Honey, you look like you need a beer to calm you down”. Was she ever right. I had just worked overtime on a double homicide and my nerves were really on edge.

Maybe, this is why we have stayed together for so many years.

No-one knows everything. My partner knows 99% of it, and the 1% I haven’t told him, my best friend knows.

Facade's avatar

Everything? No. I prefer not to be in a mental institution.

beccagolling's avatar

My S/O knows every single thing about me. No one else knows so much about me.

LuckyGuy's avatar

No. My passwords are private.

zenvelo's avatar

No. A few have come close: a couple of fraternity brothers, a couple of old friends who helped me through rough times.

My ex was always too self centered to really know anyone else. My girlfriend is close, but I didn’t meet her until I was fifty, so she is missing some big parts of my past.

Londongirl's avatar

No. Not even my mom she doesn’t know me well.

Jeruba's avatar

Nope. And never will be.

KidCurtis's avatar

No, many know bits and pieces but none really know close to everything about me, I’m just not that open of a person about many things and there’s much that even those who’re close to me do not know.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

Yes. My ex husband who is also my best friend of 26yrs.

King_Pariah's avatar

(Un)fortunately there is someone who probably will in the near future. I both find it frightening and comforting.

tranquilsea's avatar

My best friend does and so does my husband.

HungryGuy's avatar

Nope. No one person knows everything about me.

YARNLADY's avatar

I don’t even know everything about me, but my husband comes the closest.

laineybug's avatar

My best friend knows pretty much everything.

blueiiznh's avatar

The guy that lives in the park on the bench nearest the fountain. I give him a dollar every morning for milk a morning beverage.

AshLeigh's avatar

People tell me I’m a closed book. I tell them there’s just not much to know about me.

martianspringtime's avatar

No. I don’t think I even know anybody that knows mostly everything about me. Not because I’m purposefully a ‘closed book,’ I just don’t tend to talk about things unless other people bring them up.
