I’ve always had about an equal mixture of male and female friendships, but the truth is, I’ve just managed to get closer to my female friends. Women just develop friendships differently than men do. We get close quickly. We like to share a lot about ourselves. We’re more social than men, so, we’re more likely to invite someone to accompany us to the farmer’s market or a movie. My male friends—though I love them—always have a little more of a boundary up. And honestly, that’s not necessarily the wrong way to go. There are plenty of times I wish I’d put up more boundaries in friendships—I could have avoided some sticky and awkward situations. There’s no right or wrong way to do friendships, but I can definitely tell you that men and women handle them differently. Here are the different ways men and women approach friendship.


Women will comingle the groups more

My boyfriend doesn’t like to comingle his friend groups. He has this group of friends over here, this other one over there, and he doesn’t want to have them all over for a BBQ. He’d rather see them on separate nights.
