BT(boys talk) the awkward conversation

Found out an old piece I thought interesting enough to share

Everyone must have heard the word GT(girl talk),its when two girls talk about things and do not let their Guy friends know about it. its a conversation between two women/girls that is secret and protected from all men,what goes on there is something that I feel,beingย a guy I am not capable enuf to decribe or even guess,but have you ever heard the phrase BT(guys talk)ย or MT(mens talk).Well not too much I guess,I do not know if many guys subscribe to this philisophy or not because I never discussed this with other guys but most men dont really chat too much with other men.Here is a typical chat between two friends(may i say best friends).I have gone thru this routine atleast 1000 times

F1 sees F2 online

//start with pleasentries

F1: Hi

F2: Hey dude How are you

F1:M good you temme

F2:M good too

….awkward silence………

…they try to talk about work..

F1; So hows work

F2:Ya good

F2:Wat bout you

F1: Ya good..hey u in which company….still with Infy kya..(same question is repeated everytime you have a conv)

F2:Ya and you

F1 ya same

……….Silence…………………

….gettimg more generic to include almost everything in this world……

F2; So wassup…anythin new

F1:No same old and you

F2:Same here

………………….silence…………….

……………..switching to hindi/punjabi to include some interest….

F1:Hor dasso…zindagi kaisi chal ri..

F2:Sab khair hai aap ki dua se….kuch khaas nahin…

……….the age old question comes up…………EVERYTIME

F1: Ladki shadki mili ki nahin

F2:Nahi bhai hamari aisi kismat kahaan…aap batao

F2 No man no luck………..

……..Silence…….F2 goes offline online multiple times between this time…………..

F2:sorry was disconnected

F1:Ya..

………..Silence…………….f2 tries to divert to weather

F2: Aur Kidda US

F1:Bas vadiya

F2:Is it cold there

F1: Yeaah….

F2:Here too

…….Silence…………..

Both Give up…

F1..chal bhai ..g2g

F2:Yeaah Ok..bbye dude

F1 BBye stay in touch

F2 Sure

Everytime the same converstaion is repeated with little variations like plesentaries in Hindi “Namashkaaram”,failed attempts at humor ,”Babuji kaise ho”…….Aur ladkibaz………or abe kaisa hai be…..

and yes not to mention the utterly failed attempts at using smilies…:):) :D:D:D…the only two smilies used,dont know the reason but it just doesnt work with guys. It worlks like a charm when a guy is talking to a girl but not guy to guy…..somehow the fun, the punch is missing..

We are not really meant for chatting i guess.Put us in a room.give us a beer(or green tea in my case;),switch on a match and yeaah we are ready for some male bonding,but chat? No way….The only exceptions being when we are fighting or arguing over some matter,When it becomes a matter of pride :P,but generic chit chat,how was ur day kinda stuff is just wierd….

My male college friends just know that I am in US and its cold here and yes I vsited such and such places and have no GF ๐Ÿ˜› ,and thats exactly what I know about them:P…….

But yes somehow the female friends(NOTย GF) its different,they know how many pics I took,they know that i brushed with my shaving cream today:P:P..what I can cook etc etc and the conversations are filled with smilies with ๐Ÿ˜› taking the place of simple :)……with a dash of :X and ;( in them……

I know there are exceptions .and i do not mean to sayย  that the guy friends are not close enuf,actually they are much closer friends…..but somehow we cant chat…..maybe i am wrong…lemme know ๐Ÿ™‚

BTW i would be highly obliged if some girl comes up and enliglighten us on GT

  1. hmm well my best friend and I too have similar conversation on chat.. actually we rarely chat through any other medium but personal ๐Ÿ˜› and we never ever text like send forwards etc.. if we do its only a short – when do you leave or are you coming and in reply yes or no.. may be because we actually Talk a lot ๐Ÿ˜›

    But the conversation you have specified i agree is with people who are actually close ๐Ÿ™‚ because i have had such conversation with my guy and girl friends so may be its the same for all people !?

    Also see the clear indicators ‘You are Single!’ ๐Ÿ˜› .. still single? hehe
