Have you ever met a guy that has a lot of girlfriends? I mean a lot! Almost like they have more girlfriends than guy friends. And are these girls really just friends?

Lately, I've met more of these guys and I'm noticing something about them. They don't want to date any one girl in particular. Is this a coincidence? Possibly. But I think of my guy friends in Milwaukee. They have a lot of girlfriends and are pretty well known for being playboys of MKE.

A guy that I met here in Houston recently has a lot of girlfriends. In fact, he likes to have them over for dinner and cook for them. He also will go out on the town with a group of them and he's the only guy. Is this weird to anyone else or is it just me?

He also told me that he didn't want a relationship because he wanted to do what he wanted to do, such as travel. I said, "Can't you do all of those things with a girlfriend?" He responded, with the typical I don't want to answer to anyone response.

Now on the flip side of the coin I also think that girls that have a lot of guy friends and hardly any girl friends are also weird. So, don't think I'm beating up just the guys here.

I think there's something to be said for a guy or girl that is only friends with the opposite sex. Almost like they need constant validation from the opposite sex. I love having girlfriends. Maybe because I'm the only girl in my family and crave the relationship of a sister.

Think about the girl that only has guy friends and no girlfriends. In my opinion, these girls don't have girlfriends because they don't want any competition from other girls and want it all the attention for themselves.

Now, with the guys, I don't think that they lack guy friends because they don't want the competition, I think it's more that the crave attention from girls and it makes them feel better about themselves. Look at men that hang out with bimbos. They waste their time with them because being with a pretty woman makes them feel better about themselves.

Why are you wasting time with these losers? I thought your goal was finding a committed partner. This new guy with the many girl friends is not the marrying kind of guy. You know when I was in high school, all the guys that only hung out with the girls ended up being gay.

Trust me I didn't waste too much time on that loser. Hardly anytime at all.

After I got the I don't want to answer to anyone line and saw some other things he was out without a question.

Now I just can just see all the girls throw themselves at him via facebook!

You hit the nail right on the head. I am a guy and have long labeled girls with only "guy" friends as "Red Flags." Of course the same goes for guys with only girls for friends. Players! All of them! It's like the next conquest is next in line should the current guy/girl somehow screw up. (Presumably by asking, "What's with all the guys/girls you have as friends?") They cannot be trusted. A buddy of mine says "Don't hate the player... hate the game." WTF is wrong with people!?!?!

Okay Zues, I hope when you wrote about your buddy you meant an acquaintance. You know what they say about birds of a feather.

Your 'buddy' is in complete denial if he thinks he's not a problem (the one to hate). That's like saying don't blame the criminal blame the law.

To Anonymous: He is not a close friend. Just somebody I've known for what seems like forever. We're complete opposites. He's the guy that everyone talks about while shaking their heads and asking, "We're friends with him WHY?"
