It's okay to not have many female friends, right?

“I think a good (female) friend, to me, is all about trust and loyalty. You don’t ever want to second-guess whether you can tell your friend something.”

I'm basically a typical 23-year old girl, except for that one little, detail: 'I don't have many female friends'. It's not that I don't try, like don't get me wrong, I genuinely do but god it's difficult. I've always had the same issue though and found it so much easier making friends with guys than girls, but seriously, please tell me now if there is something wrong with me?
My main inspiration for this post was a caption on Instagram posted by the lovely Lauren Jane. She gave her girl squad a little shout out and mentioned, that just like me, she never had many female friends - until now. However, here I still am at 23 with a handful of close friends and you know what? I don't even care, nor do I mind really.

Trust me, I'm a super lovely person. But most girls just don't get me. 

I believe that my main problem is that I struggle to communicate with girls - kinda sounds like I'm talking about a different species here, no offence, please. But I simply struggle to keep up an interesting conversation for both of us and trying too hard just isn't cool. Also, it seems as if most girls just don't get me. I'm a very outgoing and direct person, I don't keep quiet and will speak my thoughts. FYI,  there is nothing I hate more than people mistaking being direct for rude (There is a huge difference and it's kinda time that people understand that). 

Anyways, most of my girl mates are either like me and don't have many female friends or for some odd reason, I actually managed to keep up a friendship despite all the odds. Also, as a so-called Google defined 'foreigner' I often find it much easier making friends with people who aren't native English - no clue why just is the case. During the summer when I moved to London every person I became friends with happened to be an exchange student or traveller, like what? A room full of people and I instantly connected with those who are not English - "eye roll".

I don't have many female friends and so what? 

Women not wanting to have kids or getting married is pretty much cool now, so why isn't it when I say I don't have many female friends? It's not that I don't have, it's just in comparison I have more guy friends. Like yes, I'm pretty much a girly girl but should I really have to define myself by how many girl mates I have? 

Ehh no, I'm not less of a girl or a person and still have fun. I just simply don't get on with girls as much as I do with guys and why should it bother anyone anyway? I have people ask me why I don't hang out more with girls or why I don't have a 'girls squad', like why do you even care? I'm not weird for having fewer girlfriends and I certainly shouldn't feel ashamed or uncomfortable about it, so please move on.

  2. That's so true. You don't need a girls squad. As long as you're happy and surrounded with people whom you trust and care about it's alright :) Beautiful pictures btw :)

  3. I don't have a girl squad either :) I'm still friendly with my group of friends from high school, but we rarely text or hang out. I have a couple of girls I'd consider somewhere between an acquaintance and friend that I know from past jobs or through my boyfriend, but I don't really have anyone to call up to go out with on a Saturday night. I don't mind most of the time!

    1. Oh my god, I so agree with this and it basically describes me right now! I'm on placement at the moment and all my friends are in different cities and countries so it's pretty lonely and most people I know here are my boyfriends friends but that's not the same! xoxo

  4. This is such a cool look, totally love it! And there's nothing wrong with you if you don't have many girl friends... I know many girls like that! For me, I almost don't have any guy friends - it's been like that since I was a kid. I always just hung out with girls, which just shows you people are different and that's amazing :)

  7. Not having female friends is totally okay! I just turned 30 and only in the last 2 years can I say I've got a good group of girlfriends.

  8. I have more guy friends than girl ones. I've found i make friends better with guys. Girl friends can be good, although i do find a lot of large groups of girls can get really bitchy x

  9. It's totally fine. And on the plus side, you have plenty of time to find you're own girl squad.

  10. How funny - I'm very similar. As a teen most of my friends were boys and it's the same in adulthood. What's funny is that my daughter takes after me!

  11. I think it is perfectly normal and at least you know which friends will be there for you. Not everyone can be Taylor Swift, I find it can be easier to have friendships with guys sometimes as well xx

  12. This is a great post, and it's perfectly normal! I am just the same in that I don't have many female friends! Atleast ones I am close to xx

  13. I have never had lots of friends - nor do my daughters really. I think quality rather than quantity is really important! Kaz x
