Are men really so different?

Today is Father's Day and for me, that means both happy and sad memories. I was very close to my dad and I still miss him almost every single day, nearly six years after his passing. He was one of those strong, silent types when it came to expressing his emotions but he felt things deeply and on more than one occasion I saw a tear in his eye. It was usually when one of us was leaving or returning home or when we'd done something to make him proud but once or twice, it was because he was sad. More often than not he'd blame it on dust or some such thing but he'd grin and we both knew the truth of the matter.
I think it is because of Dad that I seem to have generally good relationships with men - and I don't mean the romantic kind. I can honestly say that I have more male friends than I do female (is that a good or a bad thing?) Well, whatever it is, it means that I like to think I know a little about how men 'tick'. (Famous last words!) Foot in mouth
Don't get me wrong, I'm no expert and when it comes to falling in love with one, I'm as lost as the next woman, but it does mean that there are a few things that I can say with (almost) absolute certainty. I'm sure you all know these already but see if you agree with me or if I've left anything out.
