    I find it hard to get along with other men because most the ones I know are stereotypical and I'm not

    When i was younger (primary school) i got on with girls much more than boys, but in secondary school through to sixth form that changed and i get on more with boys than girls. That being said, i don't get on with every type of boy since most can be complete idiots when in the presence of others, so i have a type who have the same interests and hobbies as mine.

    Loooooool well most of the ones I know are, my closest friends are girls actually but that's because they seem to be those kind of girls that are just nice to everyone, if you know what type I mean

    But in my experience.. many of you are trouble :zomg:

    Like the ones that walk into a room and brighten the whole atmosphere because they are so lovely and nice to everyone and everyone loves them?

    Probably, if it weren't for hormones I bet the world would be in a constant war of man vs woman :lol:

    I honestly feel I get on with girls and guys equally. Of my close friends - more are girls atm but I couldn't pin down why that is. I'm not sure guys form the same kind of close friendships, perhaps. Though my closest friend is my boyfriend - that's obviously a bit different.

    Amongst both genders there are people I dislike. But I'd say there is more of a tendency for unpleasant girls to form a ***** pack, whereas with guys, there's more of a tendency for there to be one abhorrent ******** in every group, who is sort of tolerated. Like male *****es are more diluted. I think they can go a bit more unnoticed because of that. Complete stereotype though.

    Movies always show girls with lots of girlfriends, and guys with guy friends, and people always seem to assume you have friends of the same gender. How common is this actually? I've never had female friends, ever. Even as a little girl, I played with boys. My teachers used to remark on it. Even though I now have some female friends, my friendship group is mixed and very male heavy. I've never got on with girls, on the whole they just don't like me. I tend to find girl groups *****y and I can't be arsed with it

    My boyfriend, on the other hand, has loaaaaaaaaads of female friends. I'd say it's about a 50/50 split.

    This got me thinking, is it THAT weird to actually prefer friends of the opposite gender?

    Do you get on with your own gender? Why/why not?
    I went to all lads schools all my life

    in uni i lived with just lads

    I find its natural more often to be with lads at sport etc...

    I find a group of gurls can get *****y fast..so I prefer a mix

    my career is female dominated so im sure itl be more gal mates in times to come

    I get on with other girls, but my friendship group is mixed, simply because that is how it has worked out.

    I go to an all-girls school, but it has a close relationship with its partner all-boys school, and we have some joint clubs and organisations. It's through those joint clubs/organisations I've made most of my guy friends.

    If you're approaching groups of women with the attitude of "they're *****y and they're going to hate me" is it really a surprise that they don't like you? Of courseit's going to affect your relationships with them! There are so many different women with different personalities and interests (just like men!) that if you have repeatedly failed to find a female friendship groups that likes you, then that does seem like there's a problem with you. Namely your terrible attitude to women as friends. Have you decided that this feminism thing is taking too long so you're just going to trample on the rest of us to be 'one of the guys'?
    It's not that I approach them thinking it, it's just it always happens so I'm unsurprised when it does. I've also never found groups of women interesting.

    Yeah I know women have different personalities - and I get on with women who don't hang around in groups of women. Other "guy girls". But in my experience, women in groups are very difficult

    No, I haven't. I think women deserve equal rights, I just don't really want to hang around in groups of them

    Nope. I very rarely get on with girls and those I do get on with are typically tomboy-ish. I have always felt more comfortable around guys friends and felt like I could trust them more and they were less judgemental.

    I get along with some girls fine, but that's mostly because they're just like me. I've mostly been friends with boys throughout my life, and any female friends I've had have been the same way.
    I just hate how you never get if they genuinely like you or not. Be more upfront and honest, dammit! And for the most part they're never into the same things I am. For this reason, I prefer to spend time with my boyfriend because we like watching the same shows, we like to play Pokemon, watching Indie movies on Netflix, going to museums etc. I mean, if I could get more female friends that like to do that stuff, then that would be great.

    Wah, he needs to come back from America :cry2:

    YES. It's not that I have a problem with women, more that most women aren't into what I am and seem to dislike me for not sharing their interests. I also get on with other tomboys.

    Awww :hugs:
