People that know me know that most of my friends are guys. This is not what you're thinking. You're probably thinking "omg she is totally that girl who thinks she is cool because she hangs out with a bunch of dudes, when in reality she welcomes their dicks with open legs on a weekly rotation."
If that is what you are thinking, fuck you,
But, if you weren't thinking that at all then thanks!!! You are defying the average thought process!! Awesome!!
Nowadays it truly bothers me that when I tell people I have a lot of guy friends they jump to this conclusion that I have hooked up with all of them. "Ok but you've made out with all of them, right?" NO NO NO. I enjoy hanging around guys because as the most basic bitches will tell you: they are way less drama.
This is a very true statement, however annoying and cliche it may be. There are about six guys that I hangout with on a regular basis and I just feel like they are so simple. They enjoy the little things like Miller Lite, good titties, a combo slice of Costco pizza, and Lyft drivers that don't care if you pile 10 people into the car when they only have 4 seats available. But my favorite thing about them is that they keep everything real and give me shit 100% of the time.
I absolutely love to give people shit. I dish it out like it's no ones business but I can also take it. Guys are great because they don't really care about hurting your feelings. Five years ago I was a little more sensitive and would have been offended if a guy called me a bitch. But now I appreciate once in a while when one of my guy friends will let me know when I'm being a total B-I-T-C-H!
They let me know if I am being a pain in the ass, if I need to be more of an ass, or if they want me to help them with getting some ass. Regardless of the request, I appreciate their brutal honesty at all times.
The more I think about it, the more I feel that every girl can value from having lots of guy friends.
Here are some reasons why:
1. Like I said 10 times already, they are honest.
2. The fact that they d0n't talk about bodies and dieting 24/7.
3. The brother-like sense of protection you feel from hanging around them.
4. They don't judge.
5. They will eat an entire pizza with you and say fuck your no carb diet, silly girl!!
6. But they will also wake your ass up at 5 am to go on a hike.
7. They are trustworthy.
8. They aren't afraid to tell you when you are wrong.
9. They will give you advice without being over bearing.
10. And one of my favorites, they will let you know if the outfit you are going to wear to the bar makes you look like Snooki or if you look like Megan Fox.
They will pick you up when you are down, and then kill you all over again with endless amounts of beer and whiskey.
(Most likely ending in the scenario below)
I want to end this by being clear that I also have lots of girl friends. But, my girl friends are the kind of girls that can take a joke and hangout with guys, and it isn't seen as a big deal. I'm not saying that my girl friends are all lesbians who are scared of dick (expect for Addie, my little lesbian leprechaun), I am just saying that they have dude like qualities, which in turn make them amazing friends and amazing people.
I am also not saying all guys will fit this criteria and are going to be amazing friends or even people. There are those guy friends that will end up using you for a hook up and dump you the second they get what they want. But I have been fortunate enough to have some amazing guy friends and I am forever grateful for that.
