I know it sounds odd, but I mainly have guy friends. I don't get along with women too well. I grew up as tomboy which is why I associate predominantly with men. But it's becoming an issue when I date. They either dislike the guys I go out with out of being protective brother-types (no, they're not interested in me, before you ask lol) and tend to scare guys off, or guys I meet always say, "it makes me uncomfortable that you only hang out with dudes." I have tried to make female friends, but it's hard, especially the older you get. What should I do? When I go to clubs I can't even meet anyone because I am with all guys! It intimidates potential suitors!

I'm not going to ask you, I'm going to tell you: At least half of your male friends want to get in your pants, assuming neither they or you are gay. I'd put large money on it. Don't believe me? Try them.
Which means they're not being protective; they're disposing of their rivals as best they can.
What to do? Either pick one from the herd (see above) or keep your boyfriends away from your guy friends. Have you ever noticed that girls aren't invited to guy's night out, and vice versa? There's a reason. We show a different side of ourselves to our friends then we do to our lovers, a side our lovers don't need to see. Let your man know that you're going to hang out with your friends, and reassure him that nothing's going to happen.
Expect him, however, to be suspicious for a good long while. (See above.)2
