Rules of Gossiping

How to Be a Sensible Gossip Girl

Here's a post from OnSugar blog My DISFunkshion.

Everyone knows about the series Gossip Girl. A secret source knows everything about everyone, like Gretchen Weiners from Mean Girls, and posts it on a website. Being in a small college and living in the dorms, word about everyone spreads around fairly quickly. I’m guilty when I say that I love gossip. I like being in the know and having the scoop of everyone’s business. Why? I have no idea.

One thing everyone needs to realize about gossip is that it’s similar to a rumor. A rumor is a type of gossip, but a rumor is based on what people think will happen while gossip is believed to have happened.

Keep reading below.

The key is that whatever you hear from someone else may not be what it seems. I hear stuff all the time and never, ever judge the person. Unless they themselves told me, it cannot be fully trusted. And after losing friends due to their believing what others tell them, I refuse to make the same mistake.


A positive thing about gossip is the bond you get with the people you share it with. You’re passing, usually pointless, information and having a discussion about it. I always go to my inner circle of friends when we find something out. We let each other know what it is, and we share a trust that if we tell the information to someone outside the circle then we don’t point fingers at each other.

But do remember: loose lips sink ships.

You can talk about others as long as your not crossing the line. And not inventing and adding any untrue things about the person. Most of the people love doing that, we have to admit. Although i also hate this stuff i kinda like hearing something about the others too. But there`s no way i`m going to comment or pass it to others. Listening is enough for me.

I agree with Sally Murdock that it seems really immature to me. I guess everyone "gossips" to an extent, but when it's overdone it's kind of stupid. And older women gossiping makes me want to hurl.

When I was in highschool there were so much gossip/rumors flying around, I started inventing my own (about me) and asking my friends to spread them. You can't make people stop talking about you, but you can control what they say!
