Best friends... [Nov. 3rd, 2003|10:36 pm]

This poll by alfabettezoupe asked the question, "Is your best friend the same sex as you, or opposite?"

It occurs to me that the vast majority of my circle of close friends is female. Not only that, but my three closest friends are also female. I don't know what it is, but I find I actually prefer female company. ... and before you start with the, "well that's obvious, you're a bloke" thing... it has nothing to do with attraction or letching.

I just find that my views (in general) coincide more with my female friends than my male friends. That's not to say that I don't have any male friends, because I do. It's a really tough one to explain.

I'm not even sure why I started this thread. *shrug*

I can understand that, most of my bestest friends are female.
Yeah I flirt with them alot but then thats me but its also that they are alot better listeners than guys I find.

I find it alot easlier to talk to a female about the crazy things that are going though my head than talking to a guy. I find when talking to a guy about things it basically turns into a ladish conversation where basically end up talking crap. But with a female its more of a understanding and getting things off your chest and getting a different point of view on the whole thing which I've never even thought of before.

Brian is exactly the same, and has always said he relates better to women, and not for the reasons many people may think as you said. He can just have conversations with women that he could never have with many blokes, such as discussimg thoughts and feelings about things. Having said that, with me, Brian mostly talks about phone systems and his server lol.

Anyway, hope you and Caroline are both well.

He sounds like me ;)

I spend a significant proportion of my spare coding time on radio station applications, got the good old Non-Stop DVR to my name and technology? I live and breathe the stuff!

It sounds interesting. I'd love my own online radio show one day. Not sure if you follow my journal much, but Brian left kmfm and is on CTR now www.ctrfm.com. He's on now and you can pick up the show online.

It was a thought you wanted to express and so you posted it. Can't say any fairer than that.

I must admit that I find a lot of women a bit empty-headed, and by this I'm thinking of quite a few of the girls I went to school with, who I've seen recently. Not anyone I've met online because people online seem to have a few more brain cells to rub together than people offline ;-) I don't know; I do prefer the company of men as we seem to have more in common. And here's me working with a workplace full of women! It's been a revelation, I can tell you!
