Well, do they?-Men do not suck at friendship. Men's friendships just look different from women's friendships. There is a myth that somehow because we are not as emotionally or physically expressive as women, our friendships are less than.
Men like to get together, but they like to get together shoulder-to-shoulder, not face-to-face, like women do. They feel more comfortable doing activities with other guys. Men would rather play golf or watch the game than sit together in an intimate French restaurant sharing a bottle of wine.
Absolutely. Shoulder-to-shoulder allows you to get into highly personal stuff. What happens is that, for many men, it's safer to talk about feelings and insecurities if the game is on in the background, offering a distraction.
When you get to your late 20s and early to mid-30s, you're more apt to be coupled up, to have children, to climb the ladder at work, and you tend to not have as much time for your friends.
