Overall, I believe that women are more social creatures than men. We thrive on the hormonal boost we get from being around our buddies, from sharing stories and experiences, and from building bonds. Women tend to feel rather depressed if they don’t get to socialize on a regular basis—it’s a biological need for us. It really is! We require more of the chemicals we get from friendship than men require in order to feel happy. Meanwhile, men can be a bit more of lone rangers and it doesn’t seem to bother them much. All this is fine until those men get into relationships with women who have tons of friends. Now you have a woman with an active social life and a man who, well….his social life is his partner. It’s a very common dynamic. Here is what it’s like when your boyfriend has no friends.

You feel guilty leaving him for the weekend to go on girls’ trips. While most men might take that time to see a bunch of their buddies they haven’t seen in a while, you know that yours will just…be lonely that weekend.
