Guys usually take it as an insult when girls friendzone them. However, if they want to be friends with you despite being close to you, it’s because they value a guy best friend even more than a boyfriend. Wanna know why? Because they think that you will:
- Stay In It Longer
Ever wondered what the second F in ‘BFF’ stands for? FOREVER. Yeah, that is it. Your guy friend just wants to be with you because he likes hanging out with you. No relationship bullshit.
- Are Honest
Guy friends are not here to impress you. Thus, if you are having a bad looks day, they’ll give you an honest opinion regarding your looks.
- Have An Awesome Personality
You can be brutally honest with your guy friends as well. They won’t care about your shortcomings and instead, they’ll help you overcome them. Guy friends are awesome.
- Can Converse Well
Two of the most annoying conversations in this world are Formal conversations, boyfriend-girlfriend conversations. Though it is highly unlikely that a girl would not want her boyfriend to talk lovey-dovey with her but it can get annoying at a point (very rare). On the other side, formal conversations like “Hey, how are you”, “Hey, how’s your day going”, etc. messages are annoying. Guy friends are more straightforward and never force you to have such conversations.
- Don’t Ask For Gifts
Ever been in a relationship? From Valentine’s Day to One/Two/Infinite month-anniversaries may haunt you on a monthly basis. However, with guy friends, there is no need to share gifts. Even a bottle of liquor or a gift card would work fine with a guy best friend, that’s the beauty.
- Know How To Listen
There are times when you just want to sit and talk about some topic. A boyfriend would like to pose his opinion in every sentence whereas a guy best friend will actually care for what you have to say. You can sit down with your guy best friend and talk all you want without any break.
- Are Not Dramatic
Guy friends won’t get sad over anything. You call him ‘shit’, he’ll reply by calling you ‘shit’. Friendship stays intact even after a big fight. There are no dramas because every fight is friendly.
- Don’t Care About How They Look
You can simply be yourself when you are with your guy best friend. With a boyfriend, you’ll have to care about your hair, your lips, your eyes and the list goes on. However, with a guy best friend, you are always in your comfort zone.
