@erynne – Gracie’s got some fantastic advice there! 😀

From my experience, girls tend to use more words and more time to say basically the same thing, whereas boys are typically more curt. They also notice different things than women, because male/female brains see things differently (I’d spend some time reading up on their differences; it’s pretty interesting.) For example, women tend to notice color while men tend to notice shape.

OH, and a big thing to consider is that typically women would notice outfit details (i.e. coffee leather jacket and ripped white jeans), while men would either ignore outfit or just notice the bare minimum (i.e. jacket and jeans).

And for more general things about writing male characters, I thought this article had some interesting tips (fingers crossed so the link works XD)

Hope this helps! 🙂
