Let's say you have two friends, John and Jane, and John wants to hook up with Jane...

You are playing "Who would you go out with?" with Jane and John is brought up in the conversation, so you know the answer to that question, but you are sworn to secrecy not to tell anyone about any of the people she talked about. Now, knowing that John wants to go out with Jane, and knowing if Jane wants to go out with John or not, would you privately tell John if Jane wants to go out with him or not? Why or why not?

I would definitely tell him because there isn't really anything he can do with that information that can hurt anyone, unless he gets really upset because she won't go out with him, or he spreads it around that she likes him and she didn't want that yet. BUT I think if the guy is level-headed and he is a friend, which in this case I thought he was (I am John btw), you should tell him secretly, because if she doesn't want to go out with him, then he could just drop it, but if she does, he could be more confident in asking... but I am curious of everyone else's opinions. Note that I do realize this is breaking the trust with the girl, but it's only to help her so I don't think it really hurts anything.
