  • curious or nosy?

    can the words be used interchangeably?
    what's the difference?
    is there one?
    i think there is -
    "i don't like to walk fast man - i like to strut!"

        oh yeah, there's a difference! *L* Being curious is exactly as WannaBE said, and being nosey is a bit inconsiderate and rude :p

          If you don't like someone, they're NOSEY.
          If they're your fren, they're just curious.:Chatter
          ...it is what it is...

            Well if curiosity killed the cat...then who the heck picks the nose?

            This one's for the anal folks:
