I like opposite gender friends. Actually, I get along with males better. I never got along with females, it always ended badly and I was just never "pretty" or "cool" enough to talk/hang out with them and having a conversation with females is like repeatedly hammering a nail in your brain, while talking to males is so easy and fun and they're just a better gender for me to befriend. Extra perk: I'm not insanely beautiful so I can't seduce them with my presence so it's neber awkward muhahaha

I've never had a problem with my male friends.

I have had a problem with my female friends constantly insinuating that I and one of said male friends are a couple.

It's more society's fault than anything.

Funny thing is..

i grew up with girls most of my life , most people would assume i would have fallen for one of them. Though, i guess it's just that i don't feel the need to date any of em really (or the fact that i know their childhood secrets kinda turned me off ). I enjoy their companionship and they are friends who i will do anything for. I guess the feeling of being their for your friends kind of triumphs infatuation . hell what ever gender you are as long as you respect me i can sure as hell respect you

But there isn't anything wrong being friends with the other genders really, honestly i prefer to hang with the opposite gender. Way more chill then the guys i hang with.

These questions are hard to answer when you have no friends, but I'd typically find it more comfortable to be around women or at least males who aren't so stereotypical and entirely masculine. Regardless of having no males in my life I've not disliked I don't refuse to be around them if they are nice people, I seem to connect more to things that women would probably value more than men would, but I've been happiest around one of my sisters more than anyone, and I think I learned to deal with things the same way she did. Plus men don't seem to be very shy at all and I am which makes me feel different.

I have a total of 2 female friends.. Most my other friends are guys (both straight and gay). I don't even have female buddies here on CR. Of course sometimes people start thinking too highly of me and start believing that they like me, but it's always been quite easy to knock some sense back into them..

Strange how something like this gets to 5 pages, it's basically post after post of clarification that you can indeed have friends of all genders

(as it's now a thing for gender to be a gargantuan different pile of terms that I will never be able to remember)

I do have female and males, and we both do different things together particularly on interest.
Normally I don't ask them out cause it is awkward to continue as friends but hey if one shows interest why not ask.
Happens plenty when some girls intentionally blurt out a show of interest.

Problem solved.

My friends are mostly women. Women not girls. No drama here. Unfortunately, most "men" I know act like boys when they don't get their way so I only have a few man friends. I take the time to get to know everyone and try not to judge based on gender though. A good friend is a good friend.

Friend; a person with whom you are friendly. You can remain friendly with people even though there might be a mutual romantic or sexual attraction between you, but do not be so arrogant as to delude yourself that a mutual romantic or sexual interest cannot evolve or does not already exist between you because you have somehow evolved beyond your instincts to survive and reproduce. There will always be a high chance that you will want to move beyond the point of simply being friendly when the person that you are dealing with has all that you require in a partner romantically and sexually.


Yah, I Totally agree with this guy. Back to the topic I think most opposite genders friends are more acquaintances and stay behind a barrier on purpose. Like you know small talk people. I Couldn't ever see a boy and girl best friends and not wanting to move on from there.

What's with your gender obsession?
Does the number of socially accepted genders greatly impact your everyday life?
If so, I'm very sorry to hear that.
I'm sure people didn't mean to be so difficult to classify on purpose.

It's a current issue, it effects my immediate & extended family members that I am very close to, and I absolutely did not mean that negatively. Sorry if that's how you read it.

It's not an obsession (2 posts... 3 now I guess!) but I'm ignorant on the topic, and I don't want to be.

Are you kidding, one of my best friends is a guy! I have a little bit more female friends but I have a good amount of guy friends as well.

I've liked a few of my guy friends at certain points in time but that really didn't affect the friendship since I kept it a secret. One of my guy friends asked me out and I declined since I didn't like him that way but we still hung out regularly after even so and we were still normal around each other.

In my experience, I've had female friends who dated their guy friends and after they broke up they stopped talking altogether. I don't like to burn bridges and even so I try to remain neutral when that sort of things happens so I think it really depends on the person.

It really shouldn't be an issue, but it's sad that it is.
Everyone just wants their slice of cake and I suggest you let them have it.

So it's like a negative charge coming in contact with a positive charge. Never mind. Humans are horndogs.
