I am a woman and I have always preferred to operate my friendships as described in the article (apparently like a male!). I prefer doing activities together, don't have a strong need to share emotions with others (especially as I get older am age 56 now), and don't have a need for continual contact with others. I have a very tiny circle of friends, and, when socializing, prefer to do it with people who like to do things (working in an art studio, cultural events, dining out, physical exercise, sightseeing). I have no desire to sit around and talk for hours at a time.

The article perfectly described how I "do relationships".
