I didn't really realise how bad (or good? or whatever?) this was until recently, but I think a lot more like a guy than I do like a girl. I hate drama and really couldn't care less about chipped nail polish or shopping. I don't think acting passive aggressive or catty (ratchet is a more commonly used term) is amusing, and I tend to confront things rather than gossip. I like music like rap and classic rock, and my friends have lately been saying things like "you are honestly more of a guy than a girl". I always feel more comfortable in a t-shirt and jeans than leggings. I could go on, because there are about a million things, but I'll stop there. I think it comes from how I grew up, having only friends who are guys until this year, when I made a few "girlfriends", but I can't really connect with them super well and I can hardly ever understand where theyre coming from.
I got to thinking about this after a friend of mine said something along the lines of "Every guy needs a girl like you" and I got kind of happy right, but then he continued with "to give them advice about girls they like."
Is thinking and talking (and sometimes acting) like I do a bad thing? And will it effect guys wanting to date me?

You are not acting like a guy. You are acting like yourself. That's what any guy interested in you will tell himself. I think the way you act couldmactually help you. Not that many people like being caught in the middle of a drama.
It's funny how disconnected you are from other girls. I guess you can understand how clueless we can be sometimes about your gender. Things seems so much simpler for us guys.
I don't think the guy was being mean when he told you that. He was actually right. You could be a good translator since you know both worlds... I think not only would you make a great friend, but you would also be a catch.1

If this is true, it won't be long before you've got lines of men all the way around the block wanting a chance with a girl like you.
I mean, a handful of boys have the woman code totally cracked, including the girly girl code. But, that's only a handful. Maybe one or two percent.
The other 98 or 99 percent? Yeah, they'd very much like a girl they can actually understand, and connect with, and who doesn't confuse the living shit out of them all the time.
They'd very much want that.
The demand for girls like you greatly exceeds the supply. Trust me on this one.0
