Women Gossip Five Hours a Day, Finds Study
This will come as no surprise to the less talkative male counterparts. Woman spend five hours a day chatting and gossiping, a study has revealed. Whether at home or work women chat for about 298 minutes every day. Discussing other people’s problems, who is dating who and other people’s children form the basis of most of the chat. Other subjects that come up most regularly include romance, shopping and TV shows. The report also found that women spend 24 minutes a day discussing their weight, diets and dress size. And one third of women say they spend a chunk of their day discussing what they are eating for lunch, while one quarter regularly exchange recipes.
Women also like to talk about what cosmetic surgery procedures they would like, what their mother in-law has said, and which celebrities do they like. The study also found the average women spends 17 minutes nattering before they get to work. Those with friendly neighbours spend nearly half an hour a week gossiping or moaning together. Most women prefer chatting with friends to anyone else but say they talk to their partner, mom and their best friend about completely different things.
Husbands are most likely to get the brunt of work talk, with a daily update on how their partner’s day has gone and who has annoyed them while the more juicy gossip is reserved for a woman’s best friend. But 36 per cent of women say they cannot be trusted to keep a friend’s secret and that they regularly tell their partner things they are told in confidence. Most women prefer to chat face-to-face and also like to talk to friends one-on-one rather than in a big group.
