I have always had more female than male friends. I have always just felt more comfortable and at ease with woman. I have found men to be intimidating and I am always afraid of becoming close to men because it most of the time leads to attraction and feelings that I don't want to have. It has only been in the last 17 months of being in a 12 step program that I have started to feel more comfortable around men and have developed friendships in the rooms that are easy.
