I;ve come to realize that this is pretty common at least in big cities. In between boy friends a lot of women spend so much time with gay friends they don't meet anyone new.

A lot of women really don't LIKE going out with guys but see it as a way to get free meals and entertainment. They prefer the company of other women or gays most of the time. AS one of the other answers said, gays are a good change of pace from the company of women friends since they do tend to be less judgemental of women's behavior, more deferential.1
