I have a 16 year old daughter that really does not like having girls for friends. She prefers guys as friends. Why? She says girls her age are vicious, vindictive, sex-crazed, druggies etc.. I really want her to have a close friend but not if that's how a lot of teens act now a days. Is it? She says guys are easier to talk to and don't play the games girls do. She just doesn't want to be bothered. There has got to be some nice girls out there.

hello im 17 about to have a baby. i know exactly what your daughter means im the same all of my friends through highschool were boys i could talk to them easier than anyone else. i still havent got any close "girl" friends. the reason i got along with boys to much more than girls is because there is no competition on who looks the best, who has the best make-up, who has the hottest boyfriend etc. boys just take you for who you are and they arent bitchy and they dont talk behind your back most of them if they have a problem they will tell ya.. so Andy dont panic if she wants to have all her friends boys let her oneday she might get into a really good crowd of girls but then again she might not i think all that really matters is that shes happy :) she will be fine

Honestly, don't worry about it. I'm 19 and have always preferred to hang out with guys- manyof the people who know the most about me happen to be my guy friends. Sadly, your daughter is right. Especially in high school, girls can be vicious. Boys will yell and holler and maybe swing a punch to get their aggression out while girls are hardly ever this straightforward. They start rumors, tell lies, talk behind each other's backs, etc. Only problem I'd look out for is bullying. Many girls I know who prefer guys do so because of negative experiences. Your daughter more than likely just likes the straightforward-ness of guys, but I'd be on the lookout (or ask her) for bullying from other girls just in case.

Thanks Sarah and Suzi. I really appreciate your responses. Good luck with the baby Sarah and I agree with you that as long as she is happy it's not a big deal. Sometimes though she looks pretty sad.. Suzi, I think your right. Unfortunately, she probably does get bullied because she is a really pretty little blonde. People automatically think since you are cute you must be stuck up. She is just the opposite. It's a shame people, not just kids are so cruel. Wow, you two are very wise for such a young age. Thanks again.

if your daughter is pretty, blonde etc. they wouldnt be bullying her because of her hanging out with all boy. its because they are jelous of her.. my mum told me the same thing i didnt understand back then but i do now.. she looks stuck up to them because she is so pretty. and they dont realise that you can be pretty and a have a good heart as well. at the same time.

To a citain extent i think she is right, girls are bitchy and they spend most of their time obsessing about boys, she will have friends that are girls when shes ready but for now she might just like to stick to having boys as friands. its not unnatural, some of the best friends your can have are male. there may be qualities in boys that she won't find in girls. its not really that bigger deal. she may find there are more important things and this is just a small issue, as long as she is happy there is no need to worry.

lol, I didnt have any girlfriends until my first year of university. I found it easier to relate to males in highschool. all of the girls my age were vapid morons who only cared for boys and makup. the guys i hung around with played sports and were good friends. if one of them pissed you off, you would tell them, have a little tif and me knocking shoulders ten minutes later. Not like girls who would tell anyone but me if they were pissed at me. I have found my girl best friend who thinks most girls are annoying as well. We have a great friendship, sometimes it just takes time to find the right girl.I wouldnt worry about it though. Girls that hang out with guys are less likely to go out and have random sex or develop eating disorders. Its a good thing!!!

I know how she feels... I'm 16 and I don't have any close female friends. A couple of years ago I was badly bullied by a group of girls, and spent a couple of years trying to prove to self that I can get along with some girls... but to be honest, it seems that either they hurt me, or eventually I hurt them because I'm sick of their ways. However, this generally doesn't happen when I'm friends with guys and I tend to be much happier.

The point I am rambling on to make is that it's really not a problem if she prefers guys as friends, some people are just like that. Whether she's been through a lot of hurt due to female friends or if she just really dislikes the way she behaves, she prefers guys as friends and it doesn't really matter. Be happy that she has friends and that she doesn't simply despise the whole human race.

Really. It's nothing to worry about.

She's saving herself a lot of aggravation.

Clever girl.

Give her a break. I'm 17 and I can proudly say I have been the same way since I was 12. It's not who your friends are that will take you far in life but they can help you get though it. The only girl that I can stand to talk to to this day is the same way. We both would rather be friends with guys because we feel more at ease that way. Just be glad she is friends with those she can rely on. If that is the only way she is comfortable leave-it-be, or she could be a possible hermit and not talk to anyone. And another thing if you push to make her change she will resent you, I know me and my mother still aren't on good terms because the of the friends I choose.

If youre sure your daughter is on the up and up and not hanging with guys she shouldnt then I wouldnt worry about it.She will find a (girl) friend when she meets one she feels she has something in common with and they communicate well.Not all girls are as she claims but she probably has witnessed a thing or two she didnt care for where girls are concerened and it probably blew her whole perception of friendships with girls (for now). Girls do like to gossip and some are back stabbers so maybe its got something to do with something like that.Maybe she feels girls arent as trustworthy as guys. But if shes not getting in trouble and you have met and approve of her guy friends then I wouldnt worry.

continuing.....it could also be that shes just more (tom boy) rather than (girly girl) and so she just feels more comfortable hanging with guys.Dont worry unless you see bad behavior out of her,otherwise its harmless.

In my opinion I believe that it's perfectly natural for your daughter to hang around with boys

That was the case for me too when I was in school. Girls are mean and guys are just laid back and fun. No judgine. Simple minded. That is refreshing sometimes.

If your daughter says that girls are all of that horrible stuff!, i think she may just be jelous of someone or is just noticing girls more than she is noticing guys, I'm not trying to say anything bad, she just needs to turn her way of looking at girls around before the girls start turning your daughter around!! And, they'll do it!!
