Do you have more female friends or male friends?

Asked by Frenchfry (7584points) August 5th, 2010

When I was single I had more male friends. Since I am married I have more female friends. Do you seem to get along better with men or women?

I have more male friends. I just connect better with guys I guess. I have nothing to talk about when I’m hanging out with other girls.

Female, by a large margin. I have no idea why, since I’m not the type that women find attractive, either physically or socially; maybe I seem “safe”.

Well there’s a good variety in there but definitely more women. For some reason we gel together better, always have gotten on with the fairer sex more.

I have more female friends, but that is largely because my course at uni is very female dominated. I get on with guys and girls as well as each other, and I tend to make friends with whoever is around me. At this point in my life I am surrounded by girls, so my friends are mostly girls.

I have, and always have had, more female friends. Although i have more male friends now that i used to have back in the day. Most of my friends are online friends though, i only have a couple “in real life”, and they’re all females.

Huh. I haven’t thought about this since I was in high school. My local friends are pretty equally divided, since they’re mostly high school/college friends and their spouses. As for online friends, it’s hard to say. A lot of them are somewhere on the genderqueer spectrum.

Actually now it is pretty even 50/50 split. I mean I can count in the past a ton of guy friends way more than girl “friends”, but now I have a few close really good friends of both genders.

More female.

All my life I’ve had more guy friends, but the last year or so, females are outweighing the guys. I know not why, but then, being a guy, the only thing I know about women is that I know nothing. And they’re real friendships, not displaced romances. For whatever reason, I’m what they need, and I never turn down a chance to make friends.

In real life, it tends towards male. Online, it is overwhelmingly female.

I’m female and I have more male friends, it’s always been this way.

It’s about even.

I have 3 friends.

I’m male and I think it’s about even. Maybe slightly more female. My best friend is a girl and she’s been my best friend for a long time. She’s almost like an older sister to me.

Have one male friend; he lives out of state.

Over the course of my life, I have intellectually connected with male-bodied people who identify as men or gender non-conforming. Generally speaking these days, when I think of my top 5 friends, 2 are males, 3 are females.

I have more female friends. I often find friendships with guys to be much trickier—unless they are unavailable (married, partnered, gay, or some other reason).

downtide's avatar

All my life I’ve had more male friends. Most of my female friends (except for two) are only friends because they happen to be wives or girlfriends of my male friends.

I have more male friends, but I am closer to my female friends.

Three male. Two female. (This is my core tribe of friends.)

More male friends, it has been that way most of my life. I am fluent in male “talk”, dressed and ready to go in 5 minutes, never had to worry about my weight and I love cars, camping, rodeo and beer. My grandparents home was a USO hangout,so lots of military, my father, uncles, cousins were U.S.M.C. I enjoy the company of men.

Mariah's avatar

Right now, most of my friends are girls, but in two weeks I leave for a college that is ~75% male, sooooo…
