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

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.

Dogs are probably more loyal than humans, you're not missing out ;)

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.

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.

By saying that andrewv, all you're proving is that you yourself are a douche bag.

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

The number is fairly even for me, with the 'needle' leaning slightly towards "Other". Not many friends, but a solid core group of trusted and loyal ones. Quality over quantity.

Yeah, senior year of high school I discovered that most of my female friends liked my car more than me. So after that I hung out with mostly freshman guys. We're still friends fifteen years later. And the one guy my age I was best friends with then is still my best friend today.

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.

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

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

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

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 :)

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…

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

The porch greeting people, and I went out there to ask they needed anything, and I heard them talking about me. The counselor didnt say a word. It, and other experiences, have made me really wary of who I hang out with, so I mainly hang out with people most like me and whatnot, thus I judge harshly
