    @FromA2B2013:  I voted women, but I wish I could have voted women and neither. IRL he doesn’t really have any actual friends. Aquaintances, but not friends. At work he talks to all the girls, he’s FB friends with all of them, but almost never likes or comments on any of their posts. He’s only FB friends with 2 male co-workers that he’s not related to and IRL he only talks to one guy if we feels like going out for a couple drinks. He’s nice and pretty shy. But I know he finds it easier to talk to girls. I don’t think he’s very good at guy politics.

    Both… I guess, he has both male and female friends although most of his female friends are like me – girls who get along better with guys. Females make up only about 15% of his friendship circle, but he hangs out with them at work a lot.

    My SO is a situational-extrovert, in that he is only social when forced to be so.  When in a social situation, he appears completely outgoing and interacts well regardless of the gender of his audience.

    However, he has no friends.  I mean NO friends.  I am his only friend.  He refuses to make friends.  He had no friends before we met.  He has no interest in meeting people or making new friends.  He has stated, “I consider a group of more than three people to be an uncomfortably large group.  And one of those people needs to be me, and one needs to be you.”

    So I would say he is most comfortable talking to neither gender, but also both genders, in that he doesn’t see either as more objectionable than the other, but he dislikes interacting with both.

    I asked my SO, he said both and I’d have to agree. He has more guy friends then girl friends, but he gets on well with both.

    He can talk to both but an examination of his friends reveals that he is indeed a guy man.

    My SO tends to have guy mates that he does his hobbies with and girl mates that he chats to. So I voted both.

    @FromA2B2013:  Men, for sure. He’s admitted that he’s a little shallow and honestly isn’t interested in hanging out with or being close friends with women who don’t attract him romantically/sexually. (He doesn’t really have any good female friends he’s not related to.)

    My fiance has mostly female friends, and he’s half-and-half on his side of the wedding party. I’m friends with most of his female friends as well because they’re awesome.

    @FromA2B2013:  Thankfully my FI is not a man’s man.  He is definitely masculine but he doesn’t get into sports or video games so in a crowded room he generally speaks more comfortably with women than men.  It works out because I am more comfortable talking sports with the guys.

    @FromA2B2013:  LOL, oh, I thought this was asking if he is a “girly man” as in metrosexual. Now I understand. FI is a man’s man to the core. Aside from family (mine and his), I am the only woman he converses with. He gets along way better with men and finds them simpler to deal with. I can’t say I am upset about that!

    I voted both, but he mostly only has guy friends. So I guess it would be leaning more toward guys.

    My husband is definitely a guy man.  He loves fishing, hunting, guns, etc., plus he tends to have a pretty immature sense of humor (which I love), so it’s only a matter of time before he offends some lady lol.

    @beachbride1216:  FI is a man’s man, but he hates videos games and sports, lol. Most of his friends are my brothers (there are 3 of them) and couples that we hang out with jointly. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them sit around playing video games or watching sports. That would suck to lose your husband to the superbowl!

    @Bebealways:  LOL, your comment made me laugh. FI often says things of that nature: I’m not sleeping with her, so what am I getting out of this relationship? Why is she whining and complaining to me? He would go to the ends of the earth for me, but he doesn’t have much patience for other females.
