I have noticed that men and women have completely different styles of forming friendships. Men often need to do things together to bond, go bowling, fix cars, go fishing, play softball, go hunting, play pool, darts, poker....etc. They can experience a deep sense of intimacy working together without talking at all. The bonding is usually around an activity. Women on the other hand need to talk to bond. They seem to be perfectly content to just talk over a cup of coffee and they are able to do the Sex in the City girl bonding thing over dinner or coffee. Just plain talking around a table seems odd for most guys unless they were playing poker or doing something. The focus is different. The two sexes bond differently and I always wondered why this is the case. Has anybody else found this to be true? Any ideas why this is the case?
