I have female friends and they are more fun to talk about than men.
I find that women are more interested in non-violent things the men are. Also women seem to love crusing more than guys.
I have allways had female friends.

Didn't the movie "When Harry met Sally" address this ? Funny scene.
I agree with Harry.
I agree!! It is rare IMO for a man and a women to be "just friends" without it causing conflict or turning into something more. It is a dangerous game to play and can cause a lot of problems in a relationship. It isn't worth it to me. My hubby is my best friend anyway!! :-)

I've got lots of friends, of both sexes. Most, since retirement, are male however. My very best friend, when I was working, was a female, and we still stay in touch. It never was, and never will be any more than a GREAT friendship, and she's a good friend to the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) as well. Part of the reason we got so close, was her love of cruising. Who could ask for a better friend?
Well, here's a story....
I met my best friend from childhood, also named Donna, in Gr. 5 when we were both 10 yrs. old. She eventually moved away and I visited her over the years. Around the time we were 18 or so, she introduced me to her friend Peter, and Donna, Peter, and I have remained good friends for over 35 years. Peter is part of the reason we moved to Nova Scotia, because when we visied him and his wife, we fell in love with the province and decided to move here.
Donna, Peter, and I got together just 2 nights ago for dinner, and as you can see, we still "feel the love"!
My best and dearest friend is a woman .Over the years we have gone out to lunch and dinner .We've gone to movies ,concerts and the theater together .I've also gone out with her and her husband and she has gone out with my wife and I .

Couldn't disagree more. I have tons of gal pals, don't think twice about going to lunch or other occasions with them, with or without Terry. I grew up in a family of strong, intelligent, professional women so I was fortunate early on to form a worldview of women that was based on things beyond physical attraction. Over 42 years of marriage, there's never been any reason for Terry to have any problems about any of my female friends, because there's never been anything to have a problem about. She shares my friendship with most of them.
For most of those years we each took frequent business trips to far-flung places with members of the opposite sex. Again, so what? The cliches are just cliches. We've always shared certain values, and that's that.
It is unfortunate that so many potentially wonderful friendships are spoiled by either the reality or the perception that sexual issues would get in the way. Doesn't speak well of our ability to trust, or to deserve trust. Plus, from a purely selfish point of view I can say without equivocation that those friendships are far more valuable (and certainly more enduring) than a few random rolls in the hay.
My wife is my best friend too. . .has been for all those years. But I'd sure hate to have missed all the friendship and love I've shared with my gal pals over that time. It would have been--literally--like missing half the fun!
