iseng nge-googling pake keyword “why women like gossip”. oke, saya gugling beginian karena saya penasaran, setelah selesai baca saya jadi meragukan identitas gender saya, dan sedikit feeling so embarrassing about the fact that women are like these kinds. omg, apa saya bukan women?
You should know that men also love to gossip, the difference is what they told when gossiping. While men love to gossip about politics, their jobs, and sports, women love to gossip about their relationship with others, love issues, boyfriends, or people who make them upset. Women have a tendency to talk a lot when gossiping and talking bad about others. Maybe that’s the reason why there is a TV series titled Gossip Girl but no Gossip Guy or Gossip Boy. Here are 8 facts why women love to gossip:
1. To reduce stress levels
Having conversation with others is a fun thing for women. Like men who love to play video games.
2. To make friends
When they don’t have a topic to talk about, then gossip is a good choice for them. When talking about others, they won’t never run out of words, so gossip will help them to keep the conversation flowing.
3. Guilty pleasure
Women know that talking bad about others is not good. However, they still do it because it’s like a guilty pleasure for them. Like eating fast food when we know we’re on diet.
4. To create a bond
When a woman tells her secret, she believes in her friends and hope they don’t tell it to anybody else. She just makes a bond based on trust.
5. To vent their feelings
If women are jealous, uspet, confused, then they often vent their feelings to their friends by gossiping.
6. To make them feel superior
When they are talking bad about others, they feel more superior and powerful than the person they are talking about.
7. To seek the truth
When a woman is confused or suspicious of someone, then she will come to her friends to to ask their opinions. “My boyfriend talks to another girl all the time, is he cheating on me?”
8. Women talk much (and fast)
According to research, women talk three times as much as men. So, they also gossip more than men.
kesimpulan yang saya petik: it’s normal that women love gossip, but please be wise in doing it. It means that, don’t provoke others through your assumption about others, don’t harm others’ lives through your mouth. So, be wise, you can still do your hobby, but don’t make it as your gun to defeat others.
