# Do you like to gossip?
A little bit, don't we all. lol

# Do your friends often gossip about you?
Hmm I hope more in good ways than bad, lol.

# Why do you think people like to listen to gossip ?
We are curious animals and like to know how other people live and what they do in their lives.

# Why do people like to gossip about the rich and famous?
Same as above. We like to know how they live. Some people place celebrities on pedestals, so some people believe that celebrities are, in a sense, godlike. They have money and people want to know what they do with all this money. As for younger kids, they look at how they dress and who they are dating...etc etc.

# What are the most common themes for gossip?
Who are they sleeping with? Is she pregnant? Did they just buy a new house/car? How did he/she get that promotion? Oh, look who isn't pulling their weight again....

# Why is it considered that women gossip more then men?
Because we do...though I have known some men to gossip just as much.

# Where are some places where people like to gossip?
Work is a big one. School or college. Clubs or social groups...anywhere were people come together in a group.

# Do you like to gossip? - If gossiping means sharing news and spreading information, then yes. If it means spreading scandalous news or bad mouthing someone, then no.

# Do your friends often gossip about you? - I don't really know, but they probably share news about me.

# Why do you think people like to listen to gossip ? - Because it's one way we stay informed about all sorts of things.

# Why do people like to gossip about the rich and famous? - Because they are inaccesible, seem to be glamorous, and somehow, they aren't taken as being "real", since how many of us actually know any of them.

# What are the most common themes for gossip? - Weather, job changes, troubles others are having, who is dating whom, etc etc.

# Why is it considered that women gossip more then men? - Because women are experts at sharing information, much better at it than men are, but men do it as much as women do, believe me.

# Where are some places where people like to gossip? - On the phone, at restaurants, and the beauty parlour, of course. That is where the gossip magazines are, too, in my experience.
