Point taken , but I think these reasons are not enough to put off my previous male friends who did like me and confided in me.
We all have failings but the ones I recognise in myself do not seem strong enough to warrant rejection.Maybe if you knew me you could see the reasons. You can accept some failings in a person if you like other traits sufficiently.
To answer your question I am concerned because I want a more in depth relationship with men. I have a lovely female partner but I feel to live in a womans world, like a lot of men I guess, so I have even considered a meeting gay men for confiding in - but not for sex- if that combination is possible!?
I do not get the response I want from most men, maybe because I expect too much bonding as in my university days, or too much from relationships in general I am in a male voice choir and enjoy it partly for the bonding but no-one seems to match me in my interests and aptitudes. I get on better with women- partly because they seem more agreeable. Would you recommend some psychological analysis- either self or professional. Is my problem just part of my nature or can I learn more effective strategies. Is there an on-line forum you can recommend?
I do not have any sexual identity concerns. I am a normal male.
Could you respond to the part of my previous message shown here:

My family background and schooling were happy and normal.
I agree it could be some aspects of my personality, but which would affect my relationships with males so much more than females?
I am masculine enough eg I can be aggressive (unintentionally) and insensitive to others , but also am in touch with my feminine side- so maybe that sounds a bit mixed up or just complex?
Are there any online personality tests that you could recommend?
Thank you for your comments so far, I feel to be making progress.
