In whose company you are more comfortable? Men or women?

Sad to say, I feel more comfortable with guys; maybe because of interests more than anything else. I enjoy conversations about politics, economics, football, investment....but I also found that guys are really big gossips too. I've tried, but am no good with women in their conversations about children, schooling, parenting, grocery-shopping, cooking..etc. How about you?

I am a woman whose closest friendships have always been with men. I don't have to be in a relationship with a man to enjoy his company and his conversation. I don't treat men and women differently in a social situation. I enjoy chatting to both, as long as the conversation is worthwhile. I have met men who can drone on about children, schooling, parenting, grocery-shopping, cooking..etc. and I have met women who never talk of such things. I just enjoy good conversation and it makes no difference to me if it is with a man or a woman. I don't feel I am any closer in spirit to other women than I am to men.

Same here. I love talking about football and Manchester United FC is my favorite club. Actually, I am comfortable talking to both genders. Even though my gal friends are uninterested in football, my enthusiasm always get them interested too. As for guys, other than football, I also like talking to them about the latest animes or mangas I am watching or reading.

I actually do not have a preference when it comes to people. I have things in common with both men and women. I can conduct conversations with both equally. At work and other places. Men do gossip as much if not more than women. It's nice to have guy friends they can help out with questions about the boys in the family if you don't have a male around. Both are just as attentive and good to be around.

I'm more comfortable with women... I'm not sure why... I do have close guy friends but whenever I'm at a party or social gathering, I tend to be in a crowd of more women than men... I'm living with my girl-friend & I'm very happy with her, I don't have any intention of cheating on her or start something, nor do I have a line of women knocking on my door... I don't know what it is, I just find myself with more women friends than men...

Well! I do find the guys are interesting and have more topics to talk about. And they always try to please the ladies in their conversations, trigger a smile or laughter with their sense of humor. It is true too some can be very talkative especially those 'feminine like' guysand they are so funny. As for the ladies, if it is around my age group then it is not too bad. Sometimes I find some ladies like to talk the same old topics most of the time and it gets boring after awhileBut it is never boring if any group have the same interest and definitely sense of humor Cheers and happy posting!

I am usually more comfortable with women, but I also get along with some guys great... Funny thing is I'm friends with some women who say they don't normally have many women friends.. guess it must be the tomboy in me.. hmm??!! That said, I enjoy meaningful & intelligent (or silly) conversation with people regardless of them being men or women. Both men & women are capable of non-interesting conversation, & there can be interesting or boring conversations about children OR economics/investment.. (I prefer not to talk about politics or football lol.. even the men in our family are not into football lol.. & everyone usually gets too heated up in discussions on politics..) Sometimes talking to men can be a relief.. (They usually don't 'whine' so much as some women :)) & sometimes there are things that a man just wouldn't understand.. Yeah, I found some guys are really big gossips too, lol! :) /or, 'drama queens'!/ So true, ha ha!! :)

Yup, most guys don't whine; but when they do, they are worse than women . But you're right, sometimes talking to them can be a relief! Female company is better, when it comes to family, children and parenting! They are more sympathetic and down-to-earth. Since I'm more interested in men topics (tomboy???) like football, politics, business and so on, I'd be more comfortable with men. I'm not good at talking about kids, fashion or other female stuff! Thanks for responding and have a good day!
