To not have any male friends

(52 Posts)

I noticed at work recently that I am much more relaxed and confident when I'm with the women on our team. I am more quiet and withdrawn when men are present. Obviously I don't want this to be the case and I'd like to be myself around everyone, regardless of gender.
So I started thinking about how I am outside work and it struck me: I don't have any male friends. Not one. I socialise with lots of married couples (and am married myself), and DH has some lovely friends that I've got to know quite well... but I don't have any man-friends that I got to know myself, independently.

Is that normal? Do most of you have a more equal gender balance among your friends?

This has made me think and I've realised that apart from my dh's best friend, who I also know very well, all my close male friends are gay. Obviously I have no trouble with that, but it is interesting.

I can't think of anyone in my family who has male friends either
