If you ask people staright forward that whether they do gossip or not?? They will right away say "NO I don't like gossiping at all!!" But they actually like gossiping!! I do LIKE gossiping cause some times it helps me calm my nervers down, It cures my stress!! SO some times I just can't stop my self from gossiping!! But afterwards I end up feeling guilty about it, even though I enjoyed it :D What about you people do you like gossiping??

to be honest i enjoy gossiping a lot but only to an extent where it doesnt hurts someone else's feelings. i feel gossiping has its own rules and as long as you are following it, there is no harm in doing it and then its actually fun. but if you involve insulting others or backstabbing in your gossips the results can be hazardous and thats the part where i hate gossiping. so keep it clean and healthy and gossip as much as you can with me.

I'm one of those people who hates gossiping lol. I know it sounds random but i was always taught that if you cant say it to someones face then dont bother saying anything at all because they'll only end up hearing a second hand version of what you said and it may sound way worse than what you said in the first place. I would expect the same courtesy in return, if you want to say something about me then go ahead and say it, dont run off to your mates and talk behind my back, that just annoys the bejeebus outta me. There are times I will vent about people doing stupid things in my life and i will go mental about it if its something really stupid but i try to keep that to an absolute minimum because thats just as bad in my eyes even on the internet. I guess im just wierd like that!

hey ..Even I have the very same attitude like yours!! I have this very bad habbit of saying every thing to others on their face right away!! It may sound good that I say it on face no at the back of them, but sometimes it gets so bad that I finaly end up acting like "a mean nagging lady"..!! who just needs to point the flaws in every thing!! Now thats not good..! But "I" need to expell my feelings or a better word "frustration" some how I can't bear them in my heart for long..!! So I either say it on the person's face or another option to tell to another friend of mine but I make sure this do not get pass ahead..!!

I have to admit that some time I just like gossiping. But most of the time, I'M not the one starting it, I just continue what someone else have started. But with one of my friend, we like more celebrity gossip. We only work together once a week, so we tell each other all the new gossip and discuss about it lol

In fact i'll say we have such a thing in everyone's life. one person or the other would have talked about the other in his absence on either good or bad terms depending on the relationship between them. everyone gossips but the thing that is very bad in life is backbiting which intend to discredit others and probably make life difficult for them.

Yes, I enjoy gossips. I read about it (celebrity gossips); hear about it (my neighbor's and friends' latest), but I don't want to start it. I would just like to hear the juicy bits and keep it to myself.

Yeah gossiping... its fun ya. I too gosip a little bit now and then. But ya I don't gossip on everything and everytime. I gossip only when I run out of every other topic. Its fun but I still don't gossip aroun with everybody but with people who are close to me and mostly about people who matter or mattered. Rest of the time I preffer talking about important and interesting stuff like life, history, time, money, science, etc. You know I have got a lot to speak on these topics, and also, sometimes I bore [people with my own dream and aspirations. Any ways Take Care May GOD Bless YOU

It would depend on the topic to gossip for me. Sometimes it is really interesting to gossip about something or someone. However, I would feel guilty for doing that.

Gossip is everywhere, in the ofice, at home and even in the streets. I hear gossip and others tell me gossip but I just let it passs from ear to ear. I used to like gossip when I was ypunger, talking about people and their lives but as I grew older I have learned that its not good and its not Godly. Since I became a christian I am in the process of identifying the things that is no longer for a christian to be doing. SO whenever there are temptations of gosiping I try to leave and flee from it.

This is a good one! I have to admit that I do like gossiping but only in my work environment and only in a business type capacity. We are always speculating on the latest news from another department or from our corporation. So it really isn't on a personal type basis. I agree that there is a kind of etiquette when it comes to gossiping and as long as you follow the rules, then it isn't harming anyone. I try to discourage others who are gossiping in harmful ways as much as I can.
