Here’s my favourite kind of goo Ranking, those looking at the dark corners of inter-personal relationships in Japan, with this instance being of what you definitely cannot show to your lover, for both women not showing men and men not showing women, although looking at the answers I wonder if people were asked to answer from their school days?


On the 19th of November 2009 1,166 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 59.9% of the sample were female, 13.4% in their teens, 20.6% in their twenties, 28.2% in their thirties, 23.2% in their forties, 8.3% in their fifties, and 6.3% aged sixty or older.

Thinking about number three for men, my mother slipped into our Christmas parcel my graduation photograph, which my wife found before I had a chance to shred it! Thanks Mum!

I’m curious about the love letters people couldn’t send – why would that be? Too soppy, too racey, or just writing them like a diary and were never meant to be sent?

It seems there are far more things the women don’t want to disclose than the men.
I wonder how items relating to exes match up.

    i tend to expect more from women than men at least to some extent. probly ’cause of the vanity thing. no makeup/ old luv letters/ sleeping face. etc.. men exe’s pc data etc..
