If you follow me on any sort of social media then you know that I have some pretty great dude friends. There is just something totally awesome about having guy bffs (who don’t have feelings for you and vice versa). Here are my top reasons why having guy friends is better than having a boyfriend. 

1. You can be gross together: If you haven’t washed your hair in two days and your clothes don’t match, no worries! If you feel totally unattractive, that is totally fine because you know you don’t have to impress him, and he feels the same way when he is with you! You guys can be gross and not give it a second thought. FullSizeRender (10)
2. He saves the drama for his mama: Have you ever heard someone gush about their boyfriend one day and then cry about how terrible he treats her the next? Ain’t nobody got time for that drama! Even the best relationship comes with it’s own hardships. Your friendship with your guy bff is a save haven from boy drama because there is no games being played and no hormonal emotions involved. You are free to be honest and open with them!
3. You don’t have to worry if you are bugging him: Sometimes when I am talking to a guy I secretly wonder if I am annoying him by texting him or just annoying him in general. You don’t have to worry about your dude bff getting annoyed and dumping you and and you know he will be honest with you when you are being a little too overbearing. 
 
Guy bffs are fun! There are no expectations, no competing emotions, and they have a different point of view on things than girls do! I am so grateful for my guy bffs. I don’t know what I would do without them!

To some girls the thought of hanging out with a group of boys leaves them in a cold sweat. Boys? As friends? No way. That’s foreign territory. To others, having a group of guy friends is second nature and even preferable to a group of girlfriends. There are some pros and cons to being the girl that is considered “one of the guys” and we are about to explore them together.e6ac499e098b5b52d6da68acbfd284ef

Pro: No Drama. Bros tend to be drama free. Boys think of drama as a disease, they do everything to avoid it. Where there is no drama, there is a good time to be had.

Con: You are literally seen as a “bro”. Once you are considered a “guys girl”, the dudes you hang out with won’t see you as a female. Sort of. If you are looking for a relationship with one of your dude friends, you may want to reconsider your status as a “bro”. Beware of the friend zone!

Pro: Boys can be strong and intimidating. If you need someone to walk you to your car, pretend to be your boyfriend so the creeper in math class will stop bugging you, or pump your gas when it is freezing outside, it is always handy to have a bro.

Con: You might have to listen to bro talk. When hanging out with a bunch of dudes, you might have to listen to some shenanigans that only bros understand. A pro to this one is that their bro talk can sometimes be quite amusing.

Pro: Get more perspective. Once you get comfortable with a group of dudes, you can start asking them about their perspective on things. Need guy advice? Who better to ask than a guy himself?

Some girls are intimidated by guys, and that is totally understandable! They are a totally foreign species. All you have to do is be confident and be yourself around them, I promise they don’t bite.
