Thanks for providing the code, but it's much easier to help you if you
provide the data, too. Use dput(head(...)) to make it easy for us to
copy-paste the data.

sex[j] extracts the `j`th column out of the `sex` data frame. Does
`sex` contain 68 columns? If you want the `j`th row, use sex[j,].

Also, it may help to use merge() and have the R language do some of the
work for you, if you organise your `names` and `sex` into a single
data.frame to merge V(FriendGraph) with.

Additionally, you might save some of the execution time if you move the
V(FriendGraph) calculation out of the loop.

P.S. Your post came across mostly fine, but please compose your mail in
plain text, not HTML. We only see the plain text version, and in many
cases, the mailers horribly mangle the post when they automatically
generate it from the HTML message.

Best regards,
