7 Reasons Every Girl Needs A Guy Best Friend

7 Reasons Every Girl Needs A Guy Best Friend

Girl friends are great, but some things are just better with a good guy friend.


First things first, guys and girls can be just friends regardless of what anyone else thinks. As long as the two of you are on the same page, 'just friends' is a legit statement. And besides that point, every girl needs a guy best friend. I love my girl friends, but girls just aren't the same when it comes to some things. I am so thankful for my guys that have always got me through, they are truly some of the best people in my life. So here are just seven of the reasons I believe every girl needs at least one guy best friend in her life.

1. A guy bff is never going to lie to you


He's going to tell you if he thinks the guy you're crushing on isn't right for you and exactly why or maybe that you just need to slow it down a little. He'll also be brutally honest about that outfit you're about to wear out on a Saturday night, which is something most girls have a hard time breaking to you because they understand the hustle of trying to put together an outfit.

2. He’s going to be the best wing man you’ve ever had


It's a perfect plan, you send him in with the guys to talk you up and before you know it you got options. And because of the 'just friends' thing, no one ever gets hurt.

3. Perfect pretend boy friend


You can always pretend that he's your boyfriend when there's a guy you're not interested in hitting on you. Just grab his hand and don't leave his side and make it somewhat believable.

4. He will always protect you


He will get almost like a big brother protective instinct for you. If anyone ever hurts you, he's got your back and he'll be there to pick up the pieces when it's all over.

5. No drama


Seriously, I'm not kidding. You won't have to deal with any sort of petty ever.

6. You'll become an insider to the boy world


This is both a blessing and a curse honestly. You might find out exactly what a guy is looking for in a girl, but it also comes at the cost of knowing too much about your friend Stacy's last Friday night. Basically, this power will either help build your trust for men or completely destroy it. You'll also learn things like what the coolest video game is at the given time or where to go fishing at what time of year. You know, the kind of valuable information you wouldn't be able to live without.

7. Maybe he'll be exactly who you're looking for


IF and I say if with emphasis because if for the off chance that you two do fall for each other, well then it might just be perfect. You will already know everything about each other, so there's not one of those catch-up conversations on how many siblings you have or where you grew up. There will never be that awkward first date because you are already so comfortable around each other. Because the two of you are already so connected, I'd be lying if I said it wouldn't be easy to fall for them.

You May Have Worn The Prom Dress With Him, But I Get To Wear The Wedding Dress

You had him in high school, but I get him for the rest of my life.

High school seems like the best time of your life when you are in it. You think that all of your friends will be with you until the end, and that you will end up with whoever you are dating your senior year. For very few, that might just be the case. For all others, that is far from true.

You thought that you would marry your boyfriend and you thought that everything would work out how you had always imagined. I don't blame you though. He's great. You wanted everything with him, but you were just not right for him.

I wish I could say that I am sorry it didn't work out for you, but I can't. I can't because he is mine now, and I get to cherish him forever. You didn't do that right, and you were not meant to be together. You will find someone too, but I am happy that you were not the one for him.

Sometimes I have issues with jealousy, and I hate that you got all of the high school stuff with him. You got to go to games and support him. It kills me that I couldn't be there for him because I know I would have actually been there wholeheartedly. I would have done it out of love, not as a popularity appearance.

I hate that you got to go to all of the school dances with him. He got to see you all dressed up and probably told you how great you looked. I'm sure you did look great. Prom dresses were always fun to pick out and so colorful. It was exciting to match colors with your date. I am sure you had fun choosing his matching tux to your dress.

I find myself getting jealous, but then I stop. I am getting to match his tux with our wedding colors. I got to go dress shopping in a sea of white, and he doesn't get to know one detail about that dress yet. He will get to see me walk down the aisle and then every day forever. I get to love him forever.

I try to not get jealous of all of the things you got with him because it is all in the past. You had your time, and now I get the wedding. You got to dress up in high school, but I get to dress up for my wedding with him. He may have put a corsage on your wrist, but he will be putting the wedding ring on my finger.

I Expected It To Have It All Together By 22 And I'm Still Far From That

What we expected and what reality actually is, are two completely different things...


Oh our 20s, how we expected them to be so different. We expected to graduate college at 22, have a career by 23, be engaged by 24, married with a house by 25, kids by 26-28, vacationing with the family by 30, and retired by 60. We expected college to be parties and cute boys/girls. Instead, we got late nights of studying and crying after a job that barely pays for our car, food, dorm, and textbooks. We get no social life and if we do our grades suffer for it.

Our 20s were expected to be all fun but all we got were struggles and stress. I mean I don't know about you but I expected, to have it all together and I'm nearly 23 and far from it. I had all the scholarships and great grades, and I still don't have any type of degree.

Reality hits after 18. Most of us don't have the help of mom and dad anymore. We have to find our way and make a path for ourselves. Sometimes our dreams and goals have to be put on hold for that. The 20s isn't fun. It's about discovering who you are, who you want to be, and where you want to go. Some of us serve our country, some become incarcerated, some of us parents, some teachers, others cops, others travel or study abroad, some dead, some ill, other managers, others homeless, some still living home, and some even addicts.

The weird thing about your 20s is everyone is doing something different, but yet everyone is confused and comparing themselves to others. People feel if they're not doing what others are doing, in their age group then they have failed themselves. What people forget is that with life comes obstacles and sacrifice and everyone's life and situations are different. You are where you need to be right now, for you, and I think that's something to remember in your 20s.


Another thing about your 20's is you're free to think for yourself now. No more having to follow a religion you dislike or hold back from things you love. The world is literally yours to discover and learn from. Possibilities are endless! I think your 20's are the years you create yourself to the best version of you and build the foundation for your future. Just remember, we all build at our own pace.


The lost 22-year old that believes in you
