so when do men start calling their friends “buddies”?

i’m pretty sure when we are all in kindergarten we are still calling each other “friend” and “playmate”, and then by junior high we learn great words like “my BFF” and the like.  so when does this transition occur?  it is a rare occassion when i talk to an adult male and he says “i’m going over to my friend’s house to play video games” or “i’m getting drunk this weekend with my friend”.  does this transition to “buddy” happen in high school?  college?

male readers: please respond!

  1. Not a male, but this did get me thinking, so I asked a couple of male amigos about this matter (kinda breaking the rules, hope it helps all the same).

    The two points I was able to figure out about this are drinking and when in a relationship, going out away from his significant other.
