Do you have more good friends of your own gender, or the opposite gender? (UQ)

Too much of the same hormones in one place at one time is a recipe for stupidity. Mix it up.

I judge my own gender more harshly, resulting in a majority of opposite sex friends.

Are men and women "opposite" genders? Or are they "complimentary" genders? Women aren't my opposite and thinking they are perpetuates this gender war.

But more likely to try and sleep with you.

I have more of the Same Sex because I'm a US Marine so naturally I connect with my fellow marines which are mostly men around here.

I've always had more close guy friends. Too many females are drama queens. I'm too laid back to deal with them.

Society teaches girls to be nasty and catty and back-stabbing to other little girls. I'll stick with my guy friends....they're less likely to try and sleep with my husband.

Before you get married, have as many friends from the opposite sex as you can. It is valuable relationship skill building. You can also get to know each other without pretenses. Just keep your self respect and respect for them and their parents.

I'd say any girl who generally hangs out with mostly guys is an attention starved tease.
Any guy who generally hangs out with mostly girls is a desperate fool; or gay.
Any married person who keeps close with their opposite sex friends are more likely to cheat in the long run.

I had more opposite gender friends until I got married. Then you have to make the choice because its never good to have once your committed. No matter how anyone justifies it.

It was probably 50/50 til I got a serious boyfriend & then married. Now my only close male friend is my husband. And in my wider circle of friends, his buddies are my only male friends - I didn't retain any of my own from my single days bc guys drop out of the picture once you become unavailable.

If you are married, do not underestimate the danger of friendship with the opposite sex. When things go wrong it is not usually the blatant flirt. It is often the friend with trust, relationship and who understands why we are right and the spouse is a bad person. It is dangerous not wrong.

More of my good friends are male than female, but of my very best, do anything for them forever friends, one is male and two are female. The women are more reliable in a crisis and are more fun to be around; the guy has been closer than a brother for over twenty years.

Lloyd Dobler: I got a question. If you guys know so much about women, how come you're here at like the Gas 'n' Sip on a Saturday night completely alone drinking beers with no women anywhere?
Joe: By choice, man.

I'm a girl and my closest friends are guys. I'm with them 24/7. Of course they're my husband and 3 sons. With having a family I don't have a lot of time for friends but the ones I do get together with, outside of other married couples, are all women.

I actually tend to get along better with men (no cattiness), but since I got married, most of my friends are now women.

Boys. I used to be equal but all of my lady friends left once I became head of something in high school and they all got jealous. So now I either stick with boys or drama-free girls. I've come to despise a lot of people so I don't even bother 1/2 the time on new people.

@wedaslaves...if you give your friends up because you get married they must not have been very important to you to begin with. Two of my three closest friends are men and I'm not giving them up for anyone.

I was pretty outgoing in kindergarten through 2nd grade and I had sooo many little guy friends. But now a junior in highschool, I'm more quiet and so I really only have two guy friends, we really don't talk much though. I hope I overcome this quietness. I hate it!

As a girl, I'd say I judge other girls more harshly as well, but I kinda have to. I'm considered 'weird' by society, so I'm a target for gossip and whatnot. I actually caught a girl talking about me to a whole group of people, and it hurt so much, I was at a Campfire Girls thing, and they were on

The nice thing about being alone is nobody bitches about your naps. The bad thing is, when you die, nobody finds you until the mailman notices a funny smell coming from under your door. :P

@Hatsune sad but true. That's part of why while I try to be friendly to all, few are actually friends.

Most of my friends are guys (I'm a guy), and quite frankly it'll probably never get to more than 50% girls like ever. 10% maybe, but anyway. It's just hard to keep things platonic usually with girls (or perceptions around us). Basically, someone becomes a friend if they line up with me on a number…

of things and we can find a lot of conversation points, activities etcetera that can be done together, otherwise they're acquaintances and that's it. That goes for everybody, male or female. It's much easier to keep professional relationships than personal ones :)

As a kid I always had more girl friends than guy friends, since I was always more mature for my age and all of the guys were immature ****s lol, but my three bestfriends were guys though. But most of my other friends were girls. Maybe that's why everyone thought I was gay
