Question Asking The Opposite-Gender For Help? - July 24th 2009, 02:44 AM

Hey guys, sometimes I find It awkward to ask the opposite-gender for help. I'm in a relationship and for some reason I feel weird asking for help/talking about problems. I feel like my close friends and boyfriend are mainly the people I talk to.

What do you guys think?

I talk to my guy friends about problems. A woman shouldn't have to hear about a man's problems. I think, lol. End of Story.

Erm, I dont mind. Like Elle said, most my mates are guys, but there's some things you go to girls for, and some things you can talk to guys about. I suppose it depends on what it's about.

I seem to find it easier talking to guys than I do girls, I just seem to find them less judgemental.

I think that this really depends on the person. I find it fairly easy to talk to both as long as I trust the person. Who they are to me is much more important than what they are, if that makes sense.

I can only talk to girls about my problems. For some reason I dont trust guys at all and I have no reason to nothings happened to me or anything. Like One time I was trying to talk to my youth pastor whos a guy about some serious stuff and I just completly froze up but then his wife came in and I opened up to her and talk to her all the time now.

I like to talk to my best friend about relationship problems, he's a guy...and my ex, so perhaps its his level of understanding I like. I don't generally talk to anyone about my problems anyways, I just never believe people will understand.
Girls especially in some parts.

I've always found it easier to talk to girls. The vast majority of my close friends have been and are girls. I just feel more comfortable talking to them.

If my boyfriend and I are having an issue, I find it easier to talk to a guy friend, because I like getting a guys perspective on the matter. Actually, I find talking to guys in general a lot easier than talking to girls. :]

Guys seem easier to talk to and are more open on advice and more straight forward. With girls they can go into a long explaination, or just freak out that you may have asked such a thing. *shrugs* Just my experience. Plus, as you can see from most. Talking to the opposite sex can be easier. Also, you get a different point of view.


I'll do whatever it takes to be the mistake you can't live without.

It depends what I'm talking about or asking advice for. Sometimes it's easier to go to guys then girls; and vice versa.


Perhaps we all give the best of our hearts uncritically;
to those who hardly think about us in return.



it's not that we want to die; it's that we want to live
