Gossiping is totally natural and might not be a bad thing to do, but overdoing it is not only bad, but disgusting at the same time.

Shocking as it might sound, everyone is guilty of gossiping despite claims by some folks that ladies gossip more often than not.

A new study has revealed that gossiping separates human beings from animals as it is one of the means through which we create a network and engage with fellow beings, according to Metro UK.

The study led by a professor of Evolutionary Psychology at Oxford University,Robin Dunbar, said, “Gossiping is just chatting with people and keeping up to date with the social world in which you live. So gossip is what makes us human.

“Your social network has a huge effect on happiness and wellbeing.”

Additionally, a senior lecturer in the Department of Psychology at Manchester University, Dr Jennifer Cole, affirmed that gossiping which could be referred to as an act allows us to connect.

Cole said, “Social connection is so important. So that’s why gossip matters.

“We know we are violating someone else’s privacy and it breaks social rules about politeness. But if people don’t gossip at all we don’t like them, we’re suspicious. What we prefer is people gossip a little bit.”

So, for all the guys that believe that gossiping is a ladies thing, you would do yourself a whole good to begin the trend right away and GOSSIP but with moderation lest you ear yourself a hate award.
