Do Tell: When You Confide in a Friend, Do You Preface With "Please Don't Tell Anyone"?

Do Tell: When You Confide in a Friend, Do You Preface With "Please Don't Tell Anyone"?

I like to pride myself on being a loyal, trustworthy friend, so when someone prefaces a secret or intimate conversation with "please don't tell anyone," I can't help but be a little offended. While I understand the notion of reiterating the importance of keeping a secret under wraps, I just assume that's standard friendship protocol. I could be a little too trusting, so ladies, do tell: When you confide in a good friend, do you still preface your confidential information with a "please just keep this between me and you"?
