I…and I see an interesting trend immediately when those sites (Whisper, Secret) first started. Amongst the largest secrets and/or whispers out there, were some very distressing statements. All very similar. ” I wish that my boyfriend would cheat on me so I would have an excuse to break up with him. I wish my girlfriend would do something stupid so I could have an excuse to break up with her. I wish that such and such would do something so I would have an excuse”…again and again and again.
