Sex & the Single Woman: Boyfriends and Boy Friends

As I have mentioned before, I have a lot of guy friends and I am guaranteed to go out with them at least once a week. I have no problem with spending as much, if not more, of my time with guys instead of girls, but it seems that this might not always be the best thing for my love life.

Numerous guys have inquired about my guy friends, usually referring to them in a suspicious, “are you guys. . .” manner. While I am totally fine clearing the air (“No! No, he’s just a friend . . .”) there is always the issue that some guys never even make it so far as to ask.

Actions speak louder than words, and I’m wondering if hanging around guys so much really makes me that unapproachable. I get it — if I was interested in a guy and he was surrounded by three girls I would totally back off. But at the same time, should I be forced to choose between spending time with my good friends and possibly meeting the man of my dreams?
