Who gossips more men or women? I'm a woman and I do like to pass on so items of interest about others from time to time.My hubby thinks he doesn't gossip but if you listen to him talking with a couple of his friends"Fred is back with the wife"friend say"well does that mean Sue is up for grabs?"other friend says"Fred's gonna keep seeing her"hubby say"hey it's none of our business""Did you see the way Steve made that call on first?He had to see that".."Yea,he can't see for shlt..".."He is usually off""How does he get certified each year?" I'm so glad my husband and his male friends never gossip...lol What do you think?

Cute. I think that men gossip much more than women for sure. They are sly about it. But, they love to do it for sure.

I think women gossip more than men, because the don't mind their business. I think they derive pleasure from gossip and therefore it has become part of them. I do know of two friends who live far from each other. The older one doesn't feel ashame. I mean whenever something happens, she always be the one to tell her friend.

Impossible to say since it is largely a cultural thing all the best urban

I know that men gossip a lot. More than women indulge in it. The good thing about the way they gossip is, they don't go from house to house nor from one acquaintance to another to spread the news. I used to have a lot of more men friends than women while in college, I should know. However, they treat gossips lightly and they do not take it their tasks to spread what they have spoken of or touched on like women gossippers do. This is the reason why it is women gossippers who always get the beating.

My husband is the worst gossiper ever.. it's incredible. Otherwise I know males that don't gossip and women that don't too, so it's not about the gender I think. I like to read celeb gossip blogs and when I tell my husband something, whatever, like 'Salma Hayek is pregnant" he goes "yeeeeaaaaahhh?" lol.

Men never gossip yeah - and birds never poop on your clean washing out on the line! I looked out the window the other day to see my other half and four male neighbours standing around talking - half an hour they were all still there! Men are far worse than women - I told them that too! xxxx

I think both men and women gossip. The only difference is that women do it in public. Also the kind of topics they talk about also differs. Women tend to gossip almost anywhere, whether along the streets, in the office, bus, etc. Unlike women, men tend to do it in private for example in a closed room or inside the house wherein no other person are listening. With regards to topic most women gossip about people while men gossip about sports and politics.

I don't know your husband and therefore I am of no oppinion other than based on what you've said and Yes that is gossip. I will tell you something. I have always had my female/male friends. I love my friends all of them all in a different way. I can tell also tell you that through the years when ever I felt the need to talk about something I would always turn to a male friend. The reason for this is not even once did anything I say leaked out. I have a couple times thought I could trust my best girlfriend and both times it leaked out, after that I was all about my male friends for support. As much as my husband and I have had our differences I can tell you right now you could not even knowing him walk into my house tell him a serious story tell him to keep his mouth shut and walk out. I walk in about the time you're leaving and I ask him what you're doing here, he'd find something to say but there's just no way he'd tell even me and we're married, what your secret was. He's also a very honest person, he hasn't money yet if he saw you drop money he'd approach you and give it back. In my travels I much prefer to trust in a man. That hurts to admitt but the truth. A couple we were friends with split the sheets and I was three weeks finding out because I couldn't get ahold of her. Later I found out I told my husband and he admitted to me he knew. I asked him why he didn't tell me and he said the fellow told him to not tell anyone so he didn't.

i think that it the not a proper way .. but if it is in his nature then he should change it .as i have an idea that you can change the way of his talking .as u will recognise him that how he is rude while talking then he will feel guilty..

I do think that some men gossip just as much as women, but I think that women tend to be b$tchier about it. I also think that most men will talk a lot more about sports and mess about so they wouldn't gossip as much!
