Is it normal that i'm a girl who prefers male company?

I'm not talking about in a sexual way either, I just really enjoy being around men and talking to them, and find them easier to talk to and be around. Perhaps it's because I've had a lot of male influence in my life (my mother has always been in my life and helped raise me, but I've also always had both a father and stepfather who were also heavily involved in my raising), but I just feel that I generally connect more with men. I usually feel awkward in a room full of women and like we don't have much in common, and they seem more complex and harder to talk to and befriend. This isn't always the case of course and I do have female friends, but this is usually the case with me and I have probably an equal ratio of male and female friends, or maybe a few more male friends.

Is It Normal?

  • As long as you’re not actively pushing the women in your life away I see no issue here.

    • Nope, the only people I push out are those who are toxic, regardless of sex.

  • I'm the same way!

    Sadly, it's difficult for me to make friends with men now, because over time they want to have sex or date. I have to find someone happily married or in a good relationship for us to have a normal friendship.

    Also, I agree it feels weird to talk to other women. Since I play a lot of games, most interactions would be like:

    Me: Do you play PUBG, cause we looking for a 4th! (this was before Apex)
    Girl: What's that?
    Me: Oh. Um it's a game.. nevermind.
    Girl: Oh, I don't play games much.
    Me: That's fine! So what do you do for fun?
    Girl: I do more productive things like study law. In my feminisim class we learned that women didn't have the right to vote until 1920's, like that's fucked up. What's your opinion on that? Like women should have more rights than ever!! All dicks should get cut off.
    Me: -holy shit...- Um... I like to watch anime on my down time?

    I know this example is exaggerated a bit for the giggles, but legit I did meet a girl who did this. She's not the only one, but the most weirdest encounter. In my opinion, women become super competitive when I talk to them, I don't know why.

    • I hate it when you and your husband are with another couple, and one of the guys starts talking about gaming, and then the woman immediately just turns to you and changes the subject to something else and starts a seperate "girl" conversation. Like... I really wanted to talk about Red Dead 2 - the guy we were talking to was a huge GTA fan and he hadn't played Red Dead yet! It would have been criminal not to recommend it to him. But I got stuck talking about baby stuff. Yay.

      • I know right... Same thing with me and my girlfriend and a buddy of mine with his girl. We just wanna talk about games, movies and cars, but the girls are only interested in one upping each other.

        His girlfriend would go on about a vacation and it's price, mine retaliates with our vacations and our spendings. Gifts, clothes, jobs... it's like a competition.

        And us guys wanna chill, hang out and enjoy a few drinks.

        • I don't mind talking about girl stuff sometimes...I am currently pregnant so it's ok for me to chat about baby stuff in small doses. But it's the assumption that the conversation must split as soon as gaming is mentioned. I don't get it? It reminds me of when I was a young girl and all the women congragated in the kitchen to drink wine and talk about babies and sofa cushions, and the men went off into the front room to watch football and drink beer and talk about... I don't know what because I was never allowed in there lol.

          Where are the people who enjoy the company of both sexes supposed to go? I don't prefer the company of men, I just hate the social segregation that seems to be foisted upon us.

          My ideal social situation is that we all just hang out together. Maybe someone mentions babies and we all chat about that for a few minutes, but then the conversation naturally moves on to something else...grown ups can talk about a wide range of topics. It's all good.

    • Women seem to always be competing with each other over something. I've been made an imaginary enemy over dumb things like weight, hair color, skin, men, etc. I never usually notice until someone points it out to me though. XD

    • That's unfortunately true, especially when jealousy is involved. While I've had issues with friends of either sex in the past, it seems that some girls view other women as competition and get jealous easily, and can be very cruel as a result of it.

      • Yeah haha kind of off topic but i get on this voice chatroom called camfrog and theres this fight room i go yo where everyone just talks shit to eachother. And the women in that room are ruthless. The guys will kind of crack jokes at eachother but the women will be like "you're fucking ugly thats why your girlfriend left you" hhaha theyll throw the low blow quick

    • This is unfortunately true. I think this is a big part of why I feel more relaxed and at ease around men. I have my female friends that I also feel this way around, but it usually takes me longer to warm up to new women because some can become pretty cruel if they view other women as competition or get jealous easily.

  • I usually use y’all as my company. And then second, Idk, I’ve found a way to entertain myself with both female/male company.

    As far as feminism goes, i’m more of a humanitarian. So like, I wanna help women and children in the brothels of Bangladesh or things like that-
