Here are 5 reasons why women, in particular, love gossiping.

 

It makes you feel like you fit in. Gossiping can help women bond.

It helps you make friends. People tend to get closer when they share gossip with one another.

It reducres stress. If you hear that things are not so great with someone else, it can make you feel better about your own problems ... as horrible that sounds.

It validates your feelings. If you are complaining about someone and the other person helps affirm your feelings, you will feel better.

Everyone does it. People gossip all the time, and if you grow up hearing gossip, you may look at it as a source of fun.
