Every guy has bros. But not every guy has a girl best friend. If you’re one of the lucky few to have one then you will understand all the pros of cons of what I’m about to tell you.

Con: Everyone tries to “ship” you Yes, we hang out with each other. No, we’re not dating.Can’t a guy and a girl be friends without it having to become romantic? My answer is yes, but many people would beg to differ with me.Sometimes people find it hard to believe that you can be “just friends” with someone of the opposite sex at this age. It’s almost impossible in some people’s eyes because they’ll always be speculation of who has feelings for who in the friendship,  but I am testament to the fact that it’s very possible

Con: Blurred Lines Be warned that Some of the comments you hear overtime might get into your head and you might consider hers or your feelings for eachother as being much deeper than just a friendship. This is always a problem. No matter how much it doesn’t seem possible, there will always be a niggling fear at the back of your mind. And that really sucks, but the friendship you gain tends to be worth that trouble.

Con: They’ll make you go see chick flicks… that one is pretty self explainatory

Pro:You can get an honest opinion from a different point of view better since you’ll probably be getting a different opinion as compared to your other friends if you have someone of the opposite gender to share their thoughts with. The simplicity of being able to say certain things around woman without any inhibitions.

Pro: you have your own personal stylist They improve your fashion sense by 100.

Pro: You get to meet all of her girlfriends. I don’t need to elaborate on this one. you should  understand…

Pro: Long story short, they’ll always be there for you in any kind of situation.

So all in all the pros outweigh the cons, i must say that I’m glad to have someone like her in my life, a blessing and my best friend
