Females Having Male Friends Causing Problems

Updated on June 15, 2016

I don't understand why females having male friends is such a problem in today's society. Okay, I get it that not everyone is faithful, but if you don't trust the person that you are with, then why are you even with them in the first place.

Now, men, why can't we have other male friends? If you trust us, then why is it a problem? I have always been more friends with other guys than with other females. I don't like girls because of the fact that I know what we are capable of. We bring drama, and lots of it. Guys don't bring drama at all. You hang out and ya'll play video games, or football, or anything. I have always been a tomboy and have always been the outdoors type. Now, many females aren't like that, and always wanna do girly stuff. I hate girly stuff. So, I traveled to the male side of things. If I was a lesbian this wouldn't be a problem, but because I am straight it is such an issue.

Why is it that hanging with your guy friends makes you every dirty name in the book? I am not sleeping with every guy that I am hanging out with. I am not doing anything besides hanging out. So why must other females, and significant others make you feel like you are doing something wrong. You guys are free to join to see what is actually going on. I guaranty that you will be disappointed to see that all we do is hang out and spend time together like any friends would do. I don't understand why it is such an issue.

If the roles were reversed, I would not have an issue. I put trust into my significant other and if he wants to have female friends so be it. Yes, I will want to meet her and get to know her, but I am not going to make a big deal out of it. If you want to do something stupid, then bye, but if you just wanna hang out and get away from the guys, that I understand more then anything.

What do any of you think? Is it wrong on either ends? Is it possible for someone to be friends with the opposite sex?

      You do have a strong point. I actually have tested it and my best friend Jaspin is a guy and he says all the time, that even if there were ever the chance we could have something intimate, it would never happen because I am like a sister to him.

      There are guys out there who aren't per-say "normal" and think differently.

      Yes, women and men are capable of horrendous things, but its different. Guys are rude to other guys, and girls are terrible to each other. But when you have the opposite sex friends there doesn't tend to be all the drama unless the significant other has an issue.

      My fiance doesn't have the biggest issue, he thinks that he can't have female friends because I will freak. Not true at all, I only have issues with the girls that wanna purposely flirt.

      I think as long as you have trust with the other person and you guys are on the same common ground, then there shouldn't be an issue. Not everyone thinks this way unfortunately.
