    I know this sounds very silly but, if a boy at school hangs around with girls mostly, would that make him gay?
    -
    What do boys think when a boy don't hang around with the other boys?
    -
    Being labelled as a ladies man a good or a bad thing? Do boys feel insecure on ladies men?

    If you're 7, yes.

    I think it is usually a sign of homosexuality actually. But not definative.

    Wouldn't bother me *jk*

    Hanging round with girls doesn't automatically make you gay. Boys shouldn't care if a boy hangs round with girls and a Ladies man can be a good thing

    Nope, doesn't make you gay, just means you're more comfortable with the opposite sex than a lot of guys.

    I can talk quite casually to girls and not think "oh boy, I wanna take her right now" as a lot of my mates admit to thinking. In my opinion, being a "ladies man" as you put it is an advantage for relationships.

    i have observed that most of my straight male friends only tend to have male friends themselves or very few female friends. gay people (gay males that is) i know do tend to have more female friends. i guess it might be something to do with the gay male having, or being perceived to be having, a more feminine streak.

    This is true to some extent, and I have similarly observed it, although is not exclusive. Even from a very young age I had (and have) more female friends than male, and I am more comfortable talking to a woman/girl and tend to relate to them more, whereas with a man/boy I feel more awkward until I know them, and I am bisexual, although with a bias towards preferring women. (Most bisexuals have a bias)
    My impression of a "ladies man" is of a man who knows how to talk to women, but is "masculine" enough to be different and attractive to women, whereas other men are more meterosexual and simply relate to women more because they are more like them.

    Watching Sex & The City has taught me that there are:

    Gay Straight Men - Men who are GAY but have male atributes (eg. macho, into fitness) and hang with guys and have male friends.

    Straight Gay Men - Men who are STRAIGHT who have are more in touch with their feminine side (eg. cook, clean, aware of fashion) who may have a mix of feminine and male friends.

    They DO exist!!!

    well im gay and throughout high school all my friends were boys, because I went to an all-boys school. However at 6th form we mixed with a girls' school and I made tonnes of female friends.

    At uni, almost all my friends are girls, which I find kinda annoying and wish I had more male friends because I love hanging out with guys. Much to my disappointment, most of the guys at uni don't want to hang out with a gay lad, which I find truly bizarre because at school everyone knew I was gay and nobody gave a crap. I never once got name-called, I was always really popular.

    What a startling psychological evaluation of what motivates gay men.

    I actually think it's the other way round.

    Gays tend to stick with women more as they feel more secure with themselves, and by constantly being with groups of women, they tend to pick up tendencies usually associated with women rather than men.

    You'll find that the more 'straight acting' gays tend to have more straight male friends and they are often still in the closet given the social context.

    You are only gay if you want to have sex with men.... ok? So chilling out with girls is not gay. he might be gay, and that might be a symptom, but it does not make him gay. Capiche?

    And being a ladies man means you get lots of sexy attention. How would that make you gay?

    but it all depends tho...between gay men..one of em has 2 be like the woman and the other as the man....the one acting like the man would be difficult to determine his sexuality compared with the man acting as the woman in the relationship(it's easy to know if they are gay or not)
