i have always found it easier to be friends with males the females. why is that? since high school i have had 2 best friends that where females. it was great at first but sooner or later something would happen and you get the talking behind your back, the girl stuff... but since then i have found that when i am closer to males there never seems to be that trouble. i mean i never get mad at them, they tell you how it is you don't have to guess. to me it just seems to work better.

I have this same problem. Most of the girls that I know don't like me too much cause I tell them what I think. Females around here won't do that. They will talk about your behind your back and deny it to your face. Personally if I have something to say I will say it to your face and get it over with. Plus, I don't play into all the games that the females here play. I'm not gonna take 5 hours to get ready to go to Walmart and I'm not gonna dress up just to take my child to school (Which a lot of people here do). I'm gonna go in jeans a t-shirt be comfortable and be who I am instead of tryng to be something I'm not. I think thats why I'm better friends with males than females.

I haven't worn makeup in months. as a matter of fact I should probably throw it away it is so old. I also haven't worn anything except basketball shorts and wind pants in the last 2 years except special occasions. I can talk to guys about everything not worrying if they were going to judge me or not. I don't have to worry about if they are going to get mad if I tell them how it is. I do have a couple of girl friends and the funny thing about that is that they are the fru fru girls... But I have always been myself around them and I guess since I am getting older it just isn't as bad.

I find it easier to be friends with males. My best friend is a male and I love it. There is never anything to worry about. I have had a few close girlfriends but for some reason it always ends with us not talking. I think I just might have more in common with males since I really don't shop, wear make up or anything like that. I love sports and just hanging out. I think my husband loves that fact also.

I know my husband loves it that I am athletic and love to be outside and I like to shop but not often. I always wanted to be close to a girl but they carry around way too much baggage. My last friend that was female well we ended up not speaking anymore due to something really stupid and I am not even sure why anymore. Now I am friends with my husbands friends.
