Well, I have no reply for this. In real life there are so many reasons to NOT to be open about your problems. Because people judge you, give you unwanted advice, and even label you as a bad woman/looser. No one wants that. But in virtual life, there is no reason to be fake. In fact, no one knows you. That's why you are here. Even if someone judges, you can always defend yourself, change your ID or even disappear from this site. But people who have very very low self esteem, might feel inferior to be looked as a victim here or anywhere. Perhaps, they hide certain things or even paint a perfect picture of their lives to prove themselves to be good.
