    Do you have women friends who are more like a man?

    I will credit NR for the idea for this thread.

    Since puberty i have had some very good female mates who would qualify as a good male friend except for the presence or absence of certain appendages.
    Woman who you could meet up with at the pub, or watch sport with over a few beers.
    I even ended up in a study group at uni with three women who are still good friends now. (And before you ask, no i didn't)
    The other benefit was being able to discuss other women with a someone who had an edge on the female psyche; Very useful.
    My Thai gf is a case in point, except she very rarely touches alcohol, which is one of the major binding factors in male male friendships..

    Call em tom boys or ladettes, whatever you want, but did/do you have a good female bloke mate?

    One Scottish lass from Paisley, met at my local a few days before Xmas 1992 or thereabouts. She was working part time to get through uni (the same one as me) and was staying alone over Xmas, so I introduced her to all my mates and Xmas dinner at my place too (one of my nicer deeds, most unlike me...).

    She turned out to be an excellent ladette in all respects, and a very popular member of our extended group that was made up of many fine drinking folks including the pub football team, as you'd expect.

    I've had a few close girl friends but I wanted to shag most them all the same.

    But there is one girl that fits, she's the daughter of a close friend and I've watched her growing up.
    Now she has kids of her own and we talk quite regularly about anything with no inhibitions.
    I really do value my relationship with her very highly.
    It wasn't me!

    Most of my female friends in the UK are a bit 'laddish' - it's the norm.

    I like it ladish. Women seem to think it's all about femininity, the make-up, the mirror, the war on dirt. A nice gait and a cool voice is a must tho.

    Western women can be great friends, but make terrible wifes

    I quite like western women companionship,

    Me too. Ever heard that song, Hey Nineteen, by Steely Dan? Being able to talk about things you share from your own culture/society means a lot. One feature I didn't like about Thai girls. Sure, you can have fun talking. Try chatting about non-mainstream films and non-top 40 tunes, sports and news stories. It's a wash.

    Most of my closest friends are male, we get on fine. Have known each other for years - listened to the ups and downs in our lives, given out shoulders to cry on etc. All platonic.

    They are also very protective of me. Which I kind of like. If i bring a new boyfriend on the scene - they immediately suss him out and, unfortunately, tell me that my heart is going to be broken again. And the cycle begins again - staying up all night listening but not giving "I told you so". I do the same for them.

    We respect each other, have a good laugh and I can drink at least one of them under the table!!

    My female friends are wonderful as well. One is going through the sadness of a divorce at the moment and we talk for hours.

    My best female friend is my big sister.

    So Chassis is gay. Who wouldn've guessed.
    But really, the only reason to speak to women is to try and get into their pants otherwise why bother.

    I used to have a really good male friend but then he told me he loved me. Made things a bit awkward. Then he got a gf and she got jealous so now we don't speak.

    I guess we don't have to resort to desperate measures?

    I don't see what I would have gained from getting pissed and shagging a mate that I wasn't attracted to... I don't see how I would enjoy that lol

    My post was about the fact that men and women can be friends. And shagging does not come into it.

    Grow up or grow a pair the lot of you. If any of you men had ever got to know a woman in between shags you might find out that we are quite nice people and can be nice,

    I have no use for female friends, unless they are helping the wife clean/cook/ or blow me. Why would you want one as a mate unless you where a bit gay.
    Anyway I am sure that would upset my wife if I turned up home with some bird and said this is my new mate .
    Some may think I am being a bit hard but I have just excepted the fact that we are wired differently.

    I think for most men, the idea of shagging a woman will arise at some point, once a friendship has been established.
    What you do about it will determine the length of that friendship.
    Some of us can control the urges and some of us can't.
