I have always had male and female friends. For me there are pros and cons to both. Women / girls can be messy but it is fun to do girly things together like shop for bathingsuits or get pedicures. Plus some conversation topics I find I get more understanding and support from another woman. Dudes are chill to hang out with. Help move heavy furniture. Fix flat tires. but most of the time with me one person wants to take it to next level and if one person doesn't so it's a strain. Or if that isn't the case either my so or his gets jealous.
