One of my favorite things about the internet is the way we can connect with people all around the world. We can send messages and tell secrets to people we only know because of the miracle of technology.


These Redditors have taken to social media to share some of their best-kept, most wholesome secrets with strangers. Discover the adorable anecdotes these users are holding tight to their chests!

1. “My dad always retells stories and a few sentences in, he’ll ask ‘Have I told you this before?’ I always say no because I love hearing him tell stories and he loves telling them. Even when I’ve heard it so much that I have it memorized.”

2. “In our house, we have a safe. In the safe, there is an envelope of our online accounts and PW in case one of us dies. One of the notes is instructions to an email account my wife doesn’t know. If she accesses the account, she’ll find hundreds of love letters (or love emails) to her.”

3. “When I was very young, I was told all dogs had very good hearing so whenever I saw one in public, I would whisper how good they are.”

4. “I’m about 14 years older than my sister, who’s going to be a junior in high school in the fall. She’s extremely smart, and has been taking classes for college credit since 8th grade. She’s already being scouted by recruiters from some of the best schools in the country, including MIT and Cornell. She doesn’t know it yet, but wherever she chooses to go to school, it’s already paid for. I set up a trust fund to give her a full college education with no debt.”

5. “I’m the person secretly sending the flowers [to] the elderly ladies at the nursing home once a month. They deserve it and are the sweetest things.”

7. “In high school, I started a Compliments page for my school on Facebook. People would write in compliments about each other and I’d post them anonymously. I was deeply depressed and wanted to make a positive impact in my community when I felt really powerless. I never told anyone who was behind it, but knowing the kindness people showed their friends and classmates was really special and solidified my faith in humanity when I was at a real low point in my life.”
