Although there is a great deal of variation within each
gender, on the average, men and women discuss a
surprisingly different range of topics. According to some
studies, women and men ranging in age from seventeen
to eighty described the range of topics each discussed
with friends of the same sex. Certain topics were
common to both men and women; work, movies, and
television proved to be frequent topics for both groups.
The differences between men and women were more
striking than the similarities. Female friends spent much
more time discussing personal and domestic subjects,
relationship problems, family, health and reproductive
matters, weight, food and clothing. Men, on the other
hand, were more likely to discuss music, current events,
sports and business. Women were more likely to gossip
about close friends and family. By contrast, men spent
more time gossiping about sports figures and media
personalities. These differences can lead to frustration
when men and women try to converse with one another.
