Yeah! For example:


CONVERSATION BETWEEN TWO GUYS


GUY 1: So, did you see the Phillies gme last night?

Guy 2: (looking at his phone) Yeah. Awesome.


GUY 1: Did you see Howard's homer and Utley's RBI?

GUY 2: (texting) Yeah, man. Rollins to second.

GUY 1: Yeah.


GUY 2: (playing Angry Birds) Yeah.

CONVERSATION BETWEEN TWO GIRLS:


GIRL 1: So, like, did you see the Phillies game last night?


GIRL 2: Oh, yeah, totally. Did you see Howard's homer?

GIRL 1: And Chase Utley's RBI?

GIRL 2: (giggles)


GIRL 1: (giggles)



It's sometimes awkward when a guy like my invented Guys 1 & 2 talk to girls like 1 & 2.


GIRL 1: Hey there.


GUY 2: Um, hi. (Pulls out phone)


GIRL 1: What's up? (Also pulls out phone.)


GUY 2: (texting) Yeah...

GIRL 1: Umm....

GUY 2: Yeah.

GIRL 1: (giggles)

GUY 2: (texts Girl 1 and they continue their conversation through text)

artgirl: (i still know who you are:P, how many dif. names do you have?:)) i think your guy conversation is very biased being that you're a girl. the conversation would've gone more like this.i'm using twins BTW:P
 
Guy 1: did you see the Twins game last night?
Guy 2: oh you mean the twinkies:P
Guy 2: ikr, they suck don't they
Guy 1: did you see hicks, he dropped the ball on a routine fly ball!
Guy 2: they should just move him back to minor leagues
 
than they'll go and disect the whole team in detail...so that's how guys communicate:P

I think it's debatable. maybe overall it's different, but it also differs between families, countries, religions, and all sorts of stuff, so the difference between guys and girls probly isn't as big as the difference between other groups of people.

Packer: I have almost ten names now. XD You're right. My guy conversation is not very accurate.


REVISED GUY CONVERSATION


GUY 1: So did you see the Phillies game last night?


GUY 2: Yeah. Rollins should have gone to second on Utley's sacrifice fly. He could've made it!


GUY 1: JRoll doesn't hustle anymore.

GUY 2: He does when he wants to. He just doesn't get along with Charlie Manuel.

GUY 1: Well, even if he did hustle, he wouldn't have gone. Chase Utley is one of the only players in the game who tags from first and goes to second in a fly ball.


GUY 2: True. And hey man, did you see Domonic Brown's three hits?

GUY 1: Yeah, man, but that guy doesn't have a brain cell in his head. That's probably his first three-hit game of the season!


GUY 2: What about Chooch?

GUY 1: He's fine, he just needs a couple days to get used to being in the majors again.


GUY 2: I don't know. Last year might've been just a fluke. I mean, he wasn't that great of a hitter before last season...

GUY 1: We'll see. And how about Ryno? Three home runs so far.

GUY 2: Not good for your cleanup hitter.


GUY 1: He's batting .280, man!


Etc.
