This is my first thread in Women's Issues. I'm not a Woman, but the question can't really be answered by men. I have a lot of different kinds of friends. The thing is I have very few female friends. My question is: As far as male gay friends go, do you prefer those you can do girl things with? Shopping, hair, nails, fashion, and chick flicks? Or do any of you like the gay guys who are on the other end of the spectrum? I'm just curious. I'm also about 65% as stand offish about telling the few female friends I do have (outside of this site) about the fact that I'm gay. I'm not sure why. I have sisters and no brothers, but I still managed to turn out masculine. It is also somewhat of an uncomfortable topic to approach with them. Rarely discuss men and so on. Their gay friends are all pretty much the sassy gay friend: YouTube - Romeo & Juliet who is a bad ass but it ain't me. I guess in some ways I want female friends who I am cool talking about thing with because I imagine it would be a different conversation than other gay guys and I have no straight friends who actually know I'm gay.
