That is definitely a very understandable perspective. I suspect that many on here feel the same way. Being that I don't, at the moment, have anyone to protect, I'm all out there.
Relationships are private and no one has a need to know beyond what you choose to share. I don't think sharing necessarily makes one selfish but I can see protecting the wishes/needs of others.
