    Do you prefer male or female friends?

    I am a female ENTP and I prefer the company of men over women. I never really got along with females. I do not consider my personality particularly masculine or feminine (stereotipically speaking) so I was wondering if maybe there is a link between MBTI types and male/woman friendships...

    What do you think about?
    Do you have more male or female friends?
    Who are you more comfortable around?

    While I have about the same number of friends of both genders, I usually find it easier to connect to the males in a setting where I can't pick the kind of people I'll have to interact with. So for people I can be friends with, it doesn't really matter what their gender is, but for superficial connections, males are easier.

    I want to be friends with people I enjoy the company of.

    With that said, most of my friends are either male or women who identify as mostly having male friends. (Which is kind of entertaining - I get a lot of, "I don't really have female friends - other than you!") Then again, I'm an engineer, so not exactly a girly-girl.

    I personally have no preference but I have more female friends, I accidentally annoy a lot of males :D I still often find it easier to talk to males, especially in superficial settings like @stultum said.

    I wish the poll had more than just other/not applicable. I chose female prefer male but it isn't quite accurate. I am similar to @stultum in that I can be friends with either gender but in general settings (striking up conversations at work or a party, school), it's easier for me to superficially interact with males. I find the topics in small talk with men are more interesting to me (sports, history, science, politics, music, movies/TV shows that aren't the Bachlorette or something stupid like that). I find small talk with other women is often focused on gossip, hair/nails/clothing, stupid TV shows, etc. (although I find other working women older than 35 are way less likely to make that kind of small talk). I have fairly equal amounts of each gender acquaintance friends that have moved beyond small talk; however, I find my deep friendships have mostly been with other women. Whenever I have gotten into deep friendships with guys, it almost always had backfired because the guy ended up falling for me (which was probably his agenda from the beginning). It made me very wary of getting into really close friendships with guys because I was truly disappointed and upset when the friendship ended because he was always in the "friend zone" for me.

    Pro tip: Support guys who have a girlfriend by giving them good advice when they come to you asking about 'that crazy thing my girlfriend does.' guys who are in a relationship are much less likely to befriend you because they are in love with you, after all.

    My current guy friends are mostly married now so that is not so much a worry but I would not say I am in deep friendships with any of them. I have a bunch of work guy friends that I can bullshit at work and go out to lunch one on one or drinks after work but I am not the go-to friend for them. It has been my experience that guys that are in relationships that want to remain in that relationship do not get into deep friendships with other women. They might like to talk to you and hang out in non-suspicious/committal locations, but they are not going to call you at all hours to help deal with a problem or when they need a companion to do something one on one when you are not conveniently there (like at work). I am talking about friendships that you call/text a lot, hang out frequently and often just the two of you, are the go-to person when something is wrong, etc. Whenever I have been that person to a guy (even when they are in a "relationship"), they have fallen for me.

    Women. I connect better with women because all men I've been friends with (save one) has only brought massive drama to friend groups, lol! And all guy friends I've had would think I was flirting with them when I was only being a friend. It's all around less drama sticking to women, and I can relate more to women than to men. With women I can talk about sex, periods, pregnancy, and all that and there's a common ground that everyone has some sort of relationship with it.

    I befriend women in my area of interest/study. So we can talk economy/politics just as much as we discuss movies and guys.
