In real life, not virtual, I've an odd gift of being able to draw out the innermost feelings/darkest secrets of a guy friend/colleague/boss. I don't need to probe or solicit or anything. Those male friends/colleagues will pour out their hearts to me--over a cuppa, lunch or a smoke (not me). It's not quite the meeting of the hearts as schweppes put it. But it's the coming out from their hearts, not minds.
What's from the heart? It could be their sexual problems (how to make DW pregnant), adulterous affairs with another married woman w kids, sexual fantasies (infatuations with another woman), social insecurities, classified information, etc.
I find it strange too, as some of these guy friends/colleagues are very shy/anti-social/private individuals in public. On quick checking w other female colleagues, I realise I'm the only "chosen" one w the classified info! I'm not a trained counsellor, but I'm very patient at listening and keeping their secret from the rest of our mutual friends/colleagues. I suppose my "Trust" index is rated very high amongst peers and superiors.
