    Can one ever be completely open with another person? My friend wants/hopes our relationship will one day be completely open. I have my reservations about that.

    For me, no, at least probably not with friends. I struggle with being completely open with even the closest people. Sometimes I crave that closeness though, but most of the time it's just impossible and I value my inner space too much.

    The idea seems quite intriguing to me but a bit terrifying. I am gonna see what happens and hope for the best.

    If it's completely open, then how can there be new discoveries?

    Small secrets are worth it, for the surprise.

    haha good point. I think part of the appeal is that I am kind of like a puzzle to the person anyways.

    A puzzle that solves itself is an interesting puzzle indeed.

    Something as complex as a rubiks cube must have only 1 or 2 methods for most efficiently solving the damn thing. I've never toyed around with one enough to get the hang of it, but I've dreamed of it.
