I'm the same way, only I like it better that way. I tried making friends with some girls earlier this year and I was reminded why I don't hang out with girls. Girls are so much unnecessary drama. Yeah, I have a couple girl friends that I could call if I absolutely needed a "girls night," but another problem I've dealt with is girls aren't as reliable as guy, at least the guys I hang with. My guy friends are there for me way more than any of my girl friends.

There's nothing wrong being friends with guys. I can understand why you might want a few girl friends to go out with. My main reason is because guys tend to think I'm in a relationship with my best friend (which I secretly wish I were, I love him with all my heart, but he's actually in a relationship with my former roommate). Because I'm always around guys, most guys don't know I'm single. If I had some girl friends to go out with, then I might have a better shot at finding a guy for me.

You are who you are, and remember you can choose your friends. If you truly want to be friends with girls, then try to strike up some conversations with girls at school who might have common interests. Join a school club, one that other girls are involved in.

If you befriend some girls and decide you'd rather go back to hanging with guys, go for it. Be friends with who makes you happy. In my case, girls normally just add stress to my life.

I've always been able to befriend either gender without much problem, but I can definitely relate to how you can feel left out when you don't have this circle of friends who you can just go do things with. I have maybe 2-3 friends right now who I think would get along, but a lot of the time I get nervous about introducing my friends to each other cause I don't want to be in this situation where they aren't clicking or one is yammering on about herself and won't shut up and irritating the other and I am sitting there trying to smooth out their getting to know each other and feeling awkward and uncomfortable haha. But that's also partially due to the fact that if I get along with someone then we can be friends, so sometimes I WILL have those stray friends who I just don't think will click right with my other friends. BUT in any case, even when my friends are friends with other friends of mine, I still don't have that special tight knit circle and I DO sort of wish I just had that group of friends what ever the reason is for it not existing. Your definitely not alone there and I think that that cirlce of friends is an ideal that ont a lot of people get to enjoy... But you could always start a cirlce with a mix of people, like a few guys AND a few girls, that way even if you can only think of 1 or 2 girls to invite to, idk, a bi-weekly movie night or dinner, you can always being up numbers with 3 guys. If this cirlce is important, you could always just say say somethng like "hey, I was thinking we should get a bunch of people to start meeting at X place every friday night at 7:00, if anyone finds this interesting let me know" or you could always look out for a bunch of people who have the same interests as you (say you're all runners) and decide that every Saturday at 10:00 am you are all going to go out for a run along the water front, then maybe you'll bond and start doing stuff outside of a group run. Heck, you could even start that on facebook, like make a status about wanting to start a running group that runs where ever, and have people message if they wanna join.
