    I've only had one real male friend. I've got a couple of male acquaintances and had a male housemate but we weren't particularly close, we'd talk and have a laugh but I'd never spend time individually with him really...
    I don't really know if I get on with guys better. I was in a girls school from aged 11 to 18 then was on a female dominated course at university (and lived with majority girls).
    In my experience being friends with guys is dodgy ground, one side always ends up with feelings for the other. For example, my male best friend at the time told me he was in love with me, and it just made things awkward. I'd love to be in a big mixed group but it always happens that I'm surrounded by girls (and the occasion gay guy!)

    I get on with girls a little more I think. I tend to 'scare' people a little. But then I don't talk to guys as much as I do girls so... I prefer mixed groups though- more fun!

    I have more guy friends than girls. My friendship group is mixed, but like a 2:10 ratio (girls:guys). I prefer the company of guys. Girls... just get really *****y and jealous I mean, I probably do it too, I'm not saying I'm the perfect girl. But guy company is just so much more chilled and so much more fun.

    I get on with both, I suppose. I don't let a few people from one gender, cloud and make me not get on with the other gender.

    To me, the people I'm friends with, are similar. They're funny, and like comedy. Some love shops (Both women and men), some don't like shops. Some like sports (bBoth the female and male friends) some don 't. And both males and females can be as *****y as hell.

    I get along with my own gender but I've never been part of a girls group. I just speak to girls that I had met from different places so they don't know each other and I just meet up with them in twos or threes.

    The main large groups of friends I've had are mixed with more guys than girls.

    I don't prefer either gender for friends. But there are some subjects which I tend to talk about more with guys and vice versa. For example most girls I know are not interested that much in football so I wouldn't talk about that nearly as much as I would with male friends.

    I feel as if some girls jump on the "girls are *****es so I prefer hanging out with guys" brigade because they think it makes them special or something.
    I couldn't agree more! Just because some girls are *****es or whatever doesn't mean all girls are. I find so many girls just start this whole girl vs girl hate thing to seem like they're too mature for "girly" problems and I don't understand it at all.

    right now I mostly have female friends tbh.


    Used to be mainly male friends but when they all started being boring and stopped playing sports didn't have that much reason to be friends with them anymore lol.

    I agree, and I don't reject girls automatically as friends! I have some amazing girl friends. It just so happens that the *****iest friends are always the girls, so my friendship group is just skewed in that way... But I agree that some girls do generate the whole 'girl v girl' thing.

    I'm pretty gender-blind when it comes to most things. I prefer to live with girls but my best mate is a guy.

    What I've noticed is very few guys like being friends with an alpha male. The best group of guys are usually ones where there's no obvious alpha. If you don't try to be the alpha, you'll have good friendships with other blokes. If you try to be an alpha, you'll attract other alphas and you'll forever be in competition.

    i have a some girl friends but more guy mates because their much more chill to be with. girls give me a head ache with all their *****ing.
    some girls are super chill and i like having their company because theyre calming or they're nice to banter with. you can also makes sexual jokes with them lol.

    guys tend to stay with each other throughout the years, whereas you can barely tell when a group of girl mates are still friends the next day. it's funny.

    I'm male and I get along better with males. The girls I get along with tend to be girls that are not the norm. I find a lot of women boring, like empty shells waiting for acquisition always on their mobile phones worrying about their social circles. I like women that are a bit different.

    I do have female friends, yes. But I find it a lot less tiring to hang out with my male friends (I'm a bit of an introvert at heart, and the guys group is smaller and seems to take less energy out of me/it takes less time to recuperate after). I 'use' them for different things. If I want to have a video game night, then it's the guys/mixed group, but if it's shopping for clothes then I'll go with the girls from my class (I'm aware how stereotypical this sounds, but there's only one girl in my 'girl' group who's into video games and the guys have no interest in coming clothes shopping with me, so eh..)
    I've seen movies and gone out to dinner with both groups - but it's a completely different experience. The guys (well, there's me, one other girl and 5 guys) are much more... I don't want to say 'rude', because it's not what I mean per se, but we all have a pretty dirty sense of humour and those kinds of jokes get told more with the guys. With the girls I sometimes feel like I need to be more careful with what I say, but we all get along so it's really no hardship. I'd rather censor myself a bit more harshly than offend them iykwim. I can talk to both groups about problems I'm having and so on and they're both helpful - they often have very different insights into a situation which is pretty useful, actually.

    I don't have a preference between the two. They're just two distinct social groups I'm part of and we do different things in each one.
