Having a good friend is the best gift life can throw at you-there is no doubt in that. And every girl needs her gal pals for lonely nights after break ups, club expeditions, and ice cream dates — but where would they be without their guy friends?
Every girl truly needs that one boy best friend around whom she can be herself. Though most of us assume that having a boyfriend is enough, the truth is that boy best friends don’t expect you to beat your best behavior — the pressure to impress one another is off, and that’s a freeing experience.
From relationship advice to outfit tips, here are some reasons why all girls need a guy BFF:
- He can explain boys to you.

Well, when you are friends with a guy, your tortures come to an end because he is the one who gives you a fresh perspective on the way all other guys think.
When you have a guy friend, you can finally take a look at the world from a male’s point of view and that is something every woman wants. He can help you with winning a guy over, with reading through all the mixed signals you are getting and with handling all of your relationship drama.

Every time you want to sneak out of your home, get drunk or do something crazy, he’ll always be there with you, playing the fool and going bonkers! He’ll be your partner-in-crime and go-to person for any crazy idea you come up with.
