Girls, are you comfortable being the only female among a group of men? The way I was raised is that it's not a good look, it's not proper, can be potentially unsafe and that it's just not the thing to do. You either hang out with girls, mixed company, or just 1-on-1 with you and a man but never multiple men who aren't related to you.
But I know of girls who are consider themselves "one of the guys" and even girls who aren't really tomboys but just like being around nothing but men a lot. I'm not judging but it's just...different. I wouldn't feel comfortable. Not saying that ALL men are bad, but some are and you can't control what they will do or say. It's easy to get a bad reputation that way or be harmed if for any chance the any one of the guys you are around turn out to be unsavory.
Do you think my way of thinking is old fashioned and outdated, or good common sense?

I don't think your way of thinking is outdated. I think you're wise to think about it. It depends on the guys in question. If you were my daughter, I would encourage you not to spend a lot of time as the only women with guys with whom you're not comfortable and don't know well.
Having said that, I have known a few women who are quite comfortable with "the guys", and in fact preferred hanging out with us rather than the ladies. I prefer those women as they have a certain quality about them that I find appealing. It seems to moderate some of the more typical female behaviors and they seem to understand men better. I married one of them and I'm a lucky man.0
