It's all about how the person(male or female) approaches and how their social skills are applied to the friendship.

sometimes you're so insanely close and linked with someone, you no longer think of them as a friend, but instead your brain registers them as family, and you treat this person you used to call friend as a sibling, so just by watching and judging you cannot tell who has stronger relationships with their friends, you would have to literally be that person to tell, and as for your actual question, I think both sexes have their own special way of conveying their adoration towards friends

Maybe it feels that way because, from my point of view at least, that it seems in guy-guy friendships sharing emotions n' stuff isn't a common thing so there's not as strong as of emotional bond holding the friendship together while it seems that in female-female relationships its more open emotionally wise therefor an emotional bond is formed which brings you closer. Of course all friendships aren't like that and I don't know the little details of other's friendships but that's my guess.

Girls are drama queens so their friendships with each other last for like lets see, umm 3 years?

What I have observed from my brothers and male friends is that...men don't give a fuck! they may have some misunderstanding but the next day they will be like "best buddies" again and they forget those misunderstandings easily...whereas women (I'm a girl btw) in my experience, we have more difficulty at forgetting and forgiving, especially among women.

My best friend is a guy, I have girl friends but none I'd call "best friend"...most of the girls I've known backstabbed me a lot of times

It depends upon the person.

If you have the same tendencies I do, whether you are male or female, "strong" friendships are very hard hard to come by if not completely impossible.

Many of you have already said this, but I believe men have stronger relationships. In the past, I had many friends that I occasionally trade punches with, but after all the fighting we would still be friends the next day.. Although I had a huge fight with a friend and his mom actually said we couldn't be friends anymore, but after a month or two we were best buds again. Eventually I drifted apart from most of my friends due to growing up, but if I was to contact them I can guarantee we would be friends again and start talking/hanging out again.

My experience from female-female relationships comes from my sisters, and considering how much they talk behind each others back I can guarantee they won't be friends with ALL of the friends they currently have after High School. When my sisters get in fights with there friends the fight usually lasts about a month to a year, in which after the fight they no longer talk to them. So every month or two I meet a new friend. Quite annoying to be honest.

I don't think so
it depends on each one's manner, thinking and situations with the others.

No.

Guys call each other fags and play games.

Generalizing the majority of high school/university girls...its a emotional bloodbath.

Cant wait to move into uni<3

It depends on the person, so no men don't have stronger relationship with each other than women or vice versa. My older sister has many friends from high school who she still talks to a lot.

She can't spend time a lot of with them anymore though because she's a lawyer and travels by plane a lot (plus some of her friends have gotten married and have kids now) but when they get together they still go out dinner or go to a lot of concerts play movies etc. I'm even friends with some of her friends even though we've disagreed on some major subjects.

For better example I have a very strong relationship with my younger sister who is also my twin and we've gotten into a lot of serious physical fights, yell at each other, call each other names and sometimes even thrown a few things at each other (this has been going on ever since we were little kids also). Yet in just a couple of hours after we've had our fights, we act like nothing has even happened and we're back to acting like best friends (and that's without even saying sorry to one another or hugging each other to make up).

While I've seen guys break up permanently with their other male friends after they've had fights and some men that have not. So yeah it really honestly depends on the person and what they're fighting over or are angry about.

I'd say it's more likely for a younger guy to form longer friendships, but older women are more likely.

I see a lot of guys still hanging out since elementary to high school that are in their 20s to 30s, but girls that age tend to be more fickle and clickish. At an older age, guys just seem to either still have their friends from before or just make a lot of temporary ones (like work), or just not even care, but women seem to want more relationships with other women especially if they're married or not planning to. Older women looking for marriage might not, but still can.

Just from personal experience, but I can be wrong. Just putting out my thoughts.

Men are better friends? My brother-in-law has accused my older sister repeatedly of having affairs with his "buddies," and likes to claim that one of them is the father of my niece, despite how distinctive a half-Lakota child is. He treats his "friends" like crap, and can't keep long-term friendships. Assuming that a husband and wife are supposed to be friends, he naturally gets no points in that area. Henceforth, I'm pretty sure that neither gender is a better friend than the other.
