Do You Prefer to Hang with Girls or Boys?

No, the question has nothing to do with sexuality.

But when you're in a casual gathering or work do you enjoy the company of girls or boys most?

When I was younger I preferred to hang out with girls more than guys. Although my closest friends were guys, in school I tended to avoid the guys and sit with girls at lunch or on the bus. They were all girls who were interested in video games and other geeky stuff, otherwise. My circle of friends had a pretty equal mix of girls and guys, actually. But most guys were far more interested in sports than I was or had too much of an extroverted personality type that was just never compatible with my much more introverted nature. I found gals to be a lot more chill and tolerable back then.

That's all different now. To put it bluntly I find a lot of girls I work with and encounter now to be awfully pushy, rude, and standoffish. Not all of them, obviously. Most are pretty sweet. However, it seems like guys are a lot more chill by comparison, are easier to joke with, more approachable, and make a lot fewer unreasonable demands. The girls gotta get all up in other people's business. In my experience it seems like girls are in a constant state of challenge more than guys. Like they always have something to prove. It can make a lot of em difficult to get along with.

Is it like that for anyone else? Guys can be just the same, for certain.

Is there any particular reason anyone would find that one gender makes for better company than the other?

Boy or girl, I don't mind hanging around with you as long as you're welcoming and courteous.
Otherwise, that's why we have pets: To replace the lack of decent people surrounding us within five miles of the house.

Throughout my life so far I've had an even amount of male and female friends. I do think in Highschool I probably had more male friends because some girls got really bratty. Pretty much if someone was levelheaded they were cool in my book and there was a potential friendship there.

For me it's never mattered cuz my neighbors were all boys, the cousins I lived closest to & were closest to my age are boys. At school the ones I went with were mostly annoying till middle school (there were still some annoying ones in middle school but a lot of them grew up) so that was the exception. In high school I was into drama and video games so it was a mixed bag there and collage is collage you kind of just find the crowd you fit in with.

I've had far more guy friends than girls, its probably my timidness but I just find being around guys to be a more comfortable time for me

I used to prefer hanging out with dudes as I found less drama with them. Once I hit my twenties I realised that drama is everywhere, you've just gotta pick the right people to avoid it rather than cutting out an entire gender. Since I've managed to get a good mix of women and men among my friends, and all of them are drama free.

It’s a 50/50 mix. I love my guy friends for being down to talk about anything and especially “guy” stuff.

All of my girl-as-friends are pretty dope too. I try to avoid the drama queens and just stick with the real ones that crack jokes and have fun.

If I had to pick one, it would probably be dogs.

I’ve never really thought about the gender of friends too much and it doesn’t really weigh on my mind much when deciding who to hang out with.

I have found generally that most of my closer friends are women, but I feel like that’s mostly a coincidence and doesn’t mean much. Most of my male friends are partners of my close female friends who I have also become close with by association.

I think I get along more with girls and trans people, but that's just a chemistry thingy I guess.
