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.

XOXO, Chels
