What’s a boy [space] friend? A guy you’re not involved with or interested in romantically. Even though society and popular culture encourages us to focus on guys as “relationship material,” there are benefits to just having guy friends. Here are some reasons it’s great to have guys be your besties: 1. Hanging out with them gives you a break from the occasional (or not so occasional) drama of girl world. 2. The most drama you’ll have to deal with is who orders lunch this time. .
3. They can expose you to interests and activities your girlfriends may not be talking about. You NEVER know what you’ll wind up doing!
4. They don’t care if you’re wearing sweatpants. They’re probably wearing some themselves! 5. They are always there for you. They want you to be okay. 6. If you haven’t dated ever or if it’s been a while, hanging out with boy friends gives you an opportunity to get comfortable with the opposite sex. Spending time with them can offer insights into future relationships and the “guy world” that can seem almost foreign if your squad is all girls. 7. You may have no interest in actually dating them, but, if you need a date for something, they’re perfect!
8. When it comes time and we actually need relationship advice, we know who to call.
