The Difference Between Guys and Girls

I think the following anecdote goes a long way to describe the difference between the way guys and girls behave. I have these two friends – a guy and a girl – who live in another country. One of their common friends, A (a girl), was supposed to come down to India for a while.

This is how the two friends convey the information to me.

The girl spends half an hour on the phone describing just how amazing A is and how much fun I would have with her around.

The guy catches me on Google Talk and says, “A is coming. Check your mail. Sent you two pics.”

Because it’s boring to be so matter-of-fact. The fun’s in the details.

@epiphany: And girls use their mouths. (Ummm... That didn't come out right.)

eveline: I think I've written a post somewhere before about something like this. (Here - http://tinyurl.com/6d232x ) Please do read. You'll understand! :)


mulling over my thoughts: I don't think they'd notice if you stopped answering altogether either. That's sort of my strategy.
