Why Guy Best Friends Make Some Of The Best Friends You Can Have

11 Reasons Guy Best Friends Are Some Of The Best Friends You Can Have

Guys are great friends to have and here is a few reasons why.

Skylar Meyers

I'm so thankful to be surrounded by some really great guys in my life, but I am especially grateful for my guy best friends.

1. They are straight up with you

Don't get me wrong. I love my girl BFFs (shoutout to all of you homies!), but sometimes it takes 20 minutes for us to talk through everything before arriving at "Oh yeah, that's not good" or "Oh, he does like me."

Guys are just like, "Don't do that" or "Just reply to the man."

2. They are always down to grab food

I love that I can just call one of them up and say "Wanna grab food?" They always respond with a "Ya boi."

3. They're not afraid to make fun of you (and can usually take whatever you throw back at them) 

Well, most of them can dish it out AND take it, but I wouldn't say that's true for all...

4. They can make me laugh

Like crying on the floor laughing about the dumbest things.

5. They're really helpful when telling me if a crush is trash

This is one of the best because they're guys, and guys know guys. They offer great advice about other males and will tell me if "Nah he's trash." It saves lots of time and heartbreak, they know what they're talking about.

6. They're a good shoulder to cry on

This one is pretty great because sometimes you just need to sit and cry and while they listen.

7. Good dates to parties

There are no expectations out of the night and you can have a great time with your best friend.

8. Can always tell when something is wrong and offer advice

Maybe it's because I'm fine is used a lot, but my guy friends can tell right away if I'm having a bad day. They give pretty damn good advice as well.

9. They ask for advice

It's nice to feel like you can return the favor and it's especially fun when they ask you for girl advice.

10. Hella straight up about what you look like in your outfit

This is one of my favorites because they have no reason to lie to you about what you look like. No competition with them and they aren't just saying you look nice because they are obligated to.

11. Encouraging, funny, caring, ect

I wouldn't change my friendships with my guy best friends for the world. I am so thankful to have them all in my life.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
