    I'm assuming you're talking about straight men.

    I'm more comfortable around them than women unless they're talking sports or poker, which I don't follow.

    Generally speaking, I've found that straight men talk about their feelings but unlike women know when to give it a rest and move on.

    Women think they're a calming, mediating influence in an argument between two men but I've observed that men who'd otherwise be chill will be more aggressive to show off in front of their women. Men gotta posture, even if it leads to fisticuffs.

    I feel bad for women because they're dealt a lot of cards but I don't agree with all the cards they play.

    I'm fine with either.

    But I'm most comfortable around dogs; non judgemental.

    For me it really depends on the person/personality more than the gender. Alpha male type men ( Gay or Straight) no!!! Women who are overly boisterous, no!!! Prefer...easy going people who are not overly boisterous or obnoxious.

    Depends on the person.

    I'm comfortable about men unless they are acting ultra-macho or going on long winded discussions about the previous night's football game.

    I'm comfortable around women unless they are talking about babies or the previous night's episode of "The Bachelor".

    I'm OK with either mostly. Unless they guy is a total lumberjack in which case I feel like I gotta compensate by talking about cars and tools and stuff. icon_lol.gif

    I've never given this much thought..


    It's not a consideration for either of us when it comes to feeling comfortable around another or not.

    I just feel like I can relate to guys a lot more than women.

    I just can't figure out women. They are the strangest creatures on this Earth.

    This reminds me of another bumper sticker.

    "God made the earth and rested.

    God made man and rested.

    Then God made woman, and since neither God or man has rested".

    And a quote from Benjamin Franklin:

    "When a man and a woman die,
    As poets sung
    His heart's the last part that moves
    Hers, the tongue".

    I can get along with pretty much everyone but I'd say I connect more to right brainers rather than left brainers (those that think with more emotion, don't follow rules etc). Those that have more socialist left wing views as opposed to more conservatism. Gender really doesn't have an impact.

    Oddly enough, women. Specifically Black lesbians.

    I can get along with just about anyone, but my preference is in the following order:

    Straight men - They're just so much more relaxed and know how to just hangout and have fun without a lot of pressure or games. And when I ask my straight male friends a question, I know I'm probably getting an honest answer.

    Lesbians - Much like a straight man, but sometimes they over compensate and can get a little macho, although most are not like that.

    Gay men - This all depends on their interests and how much into the bar scene they are. If he's just a regular guy, then I get along with them just as well as a straight guy. But if he's girly and only interested in shopping and clubbing, then we'll have little in common, just like the straight female.

    Straight females - They normally play way too many games for me. Just a normal conversation can be tedious with a woman. For example, yesterday we had a lady come in and show me and my staff a new piece of equipment and instruct us on how to use it. My director brought her a cup of coffee along with some sugar packets as well as other sweeteners, but he forgot to bring her a spoon to stir her coffee. Her immediate response was to push the sugar packets away. He said "oh you like it black huh?" And she said "no, I'll just stir it with my finger." I stepped in and quickly brought her a spoon but she sat there and drank it black and went on about how "low maintenance" she was.

    Both! I don't notice gender when it comes to the friendships I've made. Also, in my former career, I worked with mostly men and now, I work with mostly women. I got along with all of them without issues.

    Men. Mostly. But also mostly women.

    I think the left brain and right brain dominance is largely a myth. We use both sides but the term is lateralization where we have a preference to use certain brain regions for specific tasks. On average we use both hemispheres.

    I'm not UNcomfortable around women, but MORE comfortable around gay men. I'm least comfortable around straight men, concerned they're judging me, mocking me for being gay, maybe thinking how they can hurt me, mess things up for me in some way, even physically attacking me. I view them as potentially hostile & harmful to me.

    Wow. It's so interesting how we can have such exact opposite feelings on who we feel the most comfortable with. Do you think it's just that we live in different areas of the country that gives us such different perspectives?

    More comfortable around men when I have my clothes off.
