    Anyone can ask, but how I answer depends on how well I know the person. If it's someone I trust, then I'll answer anything. If I don't know the person well enough, I'll tell them I'm not comfortable answering.

    Nobody ever asked anything so I do not know what is my answer.

    Same as WildCherry. I don't mind being asked and will answer most questions. Depends on the question and who is asking. If i trust them, likely i will answer whatever they ask.

    first i make sure they're actually talking to me, then hold my breath so i don't giggle, been told that's inappropriate, then i give them my undivided attention. Most often at that point they change the subject. :confused:

    I usually panic when someone asks this question and then will think about whether I can trust them or not

    I'm pretty much an open book. I would actually be happy if someone cared enough to ask.

    Then again, there's still somethings I won't answer. XD Doesn't everyone?

    I'll answer people's questions. If they ask for it though; they'd better be ready to hear my answer- cause I'm tellin' them honestly!

    I've always been open to people when they ask me things about my life-- I feel like... if there's something that Is damaging to my 'reputation' or image or whatever- I won't say it out loud ever. Not to anyone. I don't tell secrets to people if I don't want everyone to be able to know about it.

    If people act weird about things afterwards, I don't really care.
    They asked for it, right?

    I get anxious and veyr suspicious of the person. Even my best friends, even my boyfriend who knows pretty much everything about me anyway.

    I dont deal with telling people personal details about myself well.

    Well, it depends largely on what the question is. Any time I can think of it coming up it was girls asking sex things which I don't mind answering.
