Why Men don't seem to understand:
Women and Men seem to go about being socially acceptable in different ways. So in many cases it's hard to understand one another. When a Man begins a conversation he is almost always ensuring, and placing his status. Testosterone is high in many "Manly" conversations. Men in most cases are very straight to the point, and at many times competing with one another to see who's the baddest, smartest, toughest ect... I know we've all heard the expression "Boys will be boys."
Although I will say this is not true in all cases. There is always exceptions.
Women are more of a social networking system. From personal experience and from others experiences, women find it much easier to start conversations, then it is for men to begin a conversation. It seems in our social code Women feed off of others energy and sharing our own. You'd be lying if you said you didn't get excited or curious when your hear juicy gossip. We all do and we are all guilty women and men of spreading it. Women are always reliable to let you know how they feel or express, expectations, disappointments, and there emotions, basically what men find so hard to express women find either easy or at least easier. When we see a man carrying these traits of expression, neediness, and emotions, it many cases we refer him as "gay" or well, as a women as bad as that sounds.
Best friends for women mean intimate talks, "girls night" which almost always consists of alcohol, music, and Gossip.
Gossip is a huge part of our society for both Women and Men. You can try and say how different you are and how you and your girls don't gossip.... But I'm sorry we all doDefinitions of gossip on the Web:
- chitchat: light informal conversation for social occasions
- dish the dirt: wag one's tongue; speak about others and reveal secrets or intimacies; "She won't dish the dirt"
- a report (often malicious) about the behavior of other people; "the divorce caused much gossip"
- chew the fat: talk socially without exchanging too much information; "the men were sitting in the cafe and shooting the breeze"
- a person given to gossiping and divulging personal information about others
