Whisper is a site (and mobile app) that encourages people to share their secrets. Anonymously, of course. If you trawl through the site’s archives, you can find everything from the most inspiring inner monologues to the saddest, most depressing confessions running the gamut from “I’m fat and nobody loves me” to “I’m being bullied and want to kill myself”.

You’ll need to search quite hard, though, as of late the site has turned into more of a hookup/look at me/who-wants-to-join-my-game hangout┬áby people who just don’t know what sharing secrets means, but when you find the good stuff, it’s gold.

Spelling aside, what a girl! If anything will make a breakup go over better, it’s Call of Duty: if you hate it, you’ll know she never really knew you anyway, and if you love it, hey, new game and plenty of time to play!

Kotaku has a bunch of other game-related Whispers over here (including this one) that provide a unique perspective on gaming from a female standpoint.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
