I grew up with my brother and his friends and my male cousins. Majority of my cousins that are roughly my age, give or take a few years, are males. My female cousins were much younger so I didn’t connect with them as I did with the males.
That being said, I grew up with tons of “guy” related stuff and activities. I wouldn’t say I was a tomboy, I would still pick my pink dresses over a baseball cap, but growing up with males sort of contributed to having a more “male-mind and personality” than a girl’s mind – I didn’t start wearing makeup on a regular basis since earlier this year!…
If you take a look at my close group of friends, most of them are males and if you talk with me, most of my stories will be including a male friend over a female friend. To be honest, I don’t even know how to talk to girls and establish a relationship with females; I just don’t know much about “girly” stuff that most girls enjoy talking about.
I’m not shy when it comes to telling my best male friends girly things like bra/panties shopping, my period, hell, even emotions! But, sometimes guys just don’t understand what we go through. When I complain about my female friends, most guy friends will ask why girls do such things and why are we even making a big fuss over a certain thing. They also don’t understand the “time of the months” (even ones with girlfriends) and think we’re overexaggerating everything.
