    So I've had some good friendships with girls growing up. I suppose they are nice to gay guys because when we seek them out, it's because we appreciate them as people, and not because we secretly wanna sleep with them.
    So girls would often tell me their issues, and talk about things that they I think they wouldn't say to a straight guy.
    I never felt like "one of the girls" though, and I didn't want to be one of them.
    I mostly hang around gay guys now. The female sex is shrouded in mystery for me.
    Your experiences?

    (Does anyone else find ConfederateGhost annoying, but hilarious?)

    I tell her to bring me a beer, she brings me one

    I tell her to bring me a sandwhich, she brings me one.

    Beautiful relationship we have.

    Basically the guy that understands them, they end up falling for me and then being disapointed.

    I don't. While I technically consider myself bisexual, I make it known that I'm only interested in dating men because I can't relate to women on a personal level. I have no idea why. I never proactively seek out women as friends.

    I haven't had many female friends over the years, but the ones I did were elementary school tomboys. We either talked about sports or school. In high-school, I never had any female friends, or girlfriends. (You know what I mean) No one knew I was a closested gay. They were curtious, and kept to themself. I've never really been able to relate to girls on many levels. icon_neutral.gif

    Most assume I am interested in them or trying to hit on them. Usually, the third sentence out of a woman in my height and age range, after first meeting them, is something or another about their boyfriend or husband.

    I don't really have any women friends at all.

    I get along the best with women who are strongly independent/confident, or who exude other masculine traits (e.g. butch lesbian).

    I'd find it rather odd to talk about "cute guys" or anything else with most women.

    I have some great female friends of all sexualities, I find the whole lack of sexual chemistry the reason why.
    They like to get an unbiased man's take on them, and I enjoy watching the straight boys they attract.

    "How you relate to women"

    How? As only a gay man can. Gay men can relate in a unique way; we have insights into both men and women and are a natural bridge between the two.

    I don't think most males, straight or gay, really understand women.

    Very well. Women usually find camaraderie with me.

    I think CG is only annoying when he promotes YCYL.

    JackBlair69, you are nasty!

    I get along great with women and I think it is because I build relationships with them as individuals. I do things like ask about their day, ask how they're doing, compliment them when I notice something about them, or check in on them if they don't seem ok. You know, like a human being would do to another human being. I feel like part of being a man is in getting along well with females. I learned that from my Dad.

    I'm friends with a number of women, straight & lesbian, and my partner & I often go out to dinner with them, as well as with straight married couples. But I don't have any very close female friends, like I do among other gay guys.

    I was always awkward with women, though when I was in denial I didn't understand why. I thought I was just a socially shy and unromantic person by nature. After coming out I've learned I'm anything but shy, and I think at least more romantic than I was, the difference being I'm not longer wasting my time on the wrong gender.

    And I'm actually more friendly with women now, because I'm no longer conflicted & confused, from trying to perform a sexual role at which I was neither very good nor very enthusiastic. Now we can just be friends, appreciating each other as individuals, and leave it at that.

    I really like women, and have been with a few of them - but I don't want to sleep with them anymore. I've tried it - and it was okay - - - but guys are much, much better! I get along fine with them though - in a work or social setting.
