I read this quote below and I agree whole heartedly with the first seven of these nine reasons, they are so true, at least they have been with David. I remember my girlfriends who talked about having a guy as a best friend and how wonderful it was, now I see and agree completely.
Reasons to have a guy best friend:
Guys don't start rumors for no apparent reason.
They won't tell your secrets.
They don't PMS and randomly act super rude.
They don't try to steal the guy you like.
They aren't two faced.
They stick up for you no matter what.
They'll give you their sweatshirt when your cold.
They'll carry you when you get hurt.
And they might even fall in love with you.
Okay, not sure David could carry me... lol but all the ones above are an awesome reason to have a guy as a best friend. I've always had women as best friends throughout my life and unfortunately as much as I love them, they don't compare to having a guy as a best friend.
