so I was just wondering how many of us find ourselves gossiping - I dunno I found myself casually talking about a couple friends of mine to someone the other day and said outl oud - "geeze i am really gossiping" but not bad talk just you know catching someone up - yeah I have told myself I am going to make a conscious effort not to do this anymore - it isnt cool

Most of us talk about things, the best of us talk about ideas, the worst of us talk about people

A few days ago I realized that I'm the LAST one that people ever come to with gossip. I figured the key to hearing gossip, was TELLING gossip, so a friend and I made stuff up about eachother and started telling people. It didn't work.

i think there's a difference between talking about your friends in a malicious manner, or talking about their lives for the purposes of entertainment; and talking about your friends in order to catch up or be filled in.

to say that anytime you are talking about your friends when they aren't present is gossiping, is a little ridiculous. they are your friends, you care about them, your intentions aren't to hurt them...but they are a part of your life, and therefore, will enter conversation. and i see nothing wrong with that.

gossiping is an entirely different thing.

i'm with you mingster. i see gossipping as having malicious connotations.

spreading lies, and/or information that one party would not want discussed is gossipping.

other than that it's called the Tribe General Forum.

my friends are too huge a part of my life for me to never bring them up in conversation.
its different when you're slagging someone or making fun of them or intentionally telling their secrets.

oh well then I guess I am not gossiping - cuz I am not spreading rumours or slagging people - just basically catching up in a normal way - cool - I am still not talking about stuff that isnt my business anymore - cuz i feel guilty either way

I once worked in a department that had 20 women and 2 guys. Being around that many women all day was madness. Soooo much gossip and so much talking behind people's backs. I felt sorry for those 2 guys that had to deal with all that estrogen. Gossiping really is a girl thang.

You both missfired ;)

A big problem with gossiping..other than the fact that it sucks..is that information always gets twisted around. It ends up being like broken telephone. ANd the gossip being passed around usually gets further and further from the truth.

Gossiping is probably the lowest form of communication...it really irks me.
I think we'd all be lying if we said we've never gossiped...I've caught myself doing it before.
But people who gossip ALL the time amaze me.
They must feel pretty shitty about their own lives to be constantly berating others.
Luckily they can have break from the lip flapping when The Bachelor or Average Joe 2 comes on.

i don't usually gossip. i just talk about people behind their back. chances are if you've met me i've probably said something about you behind your back.

i need the attention.
