I love my male friends so much. When I end a day hanging with them, I just have a totally special feeling. It’s different than how I feel after hanging out with my female friends. Neither is better or worse—they’re both wonderful in their own respective ways—but the way my male and female friends make me feel is decidedly different. I certainly wouldn’t describe myself as a guy’s girl, by the way. I am obsessed with shows like “The Golden Girls” and “Sex and the City,” I absolutely love to shop, I’m rather sensitive, and you better believe I speak to puppies and babies in some ridiculously high-pitched tones when I meet them. But yes, even I have several good male friends and I’m so grateful for them. They’ve helped me through a lot, and taught me so much. Here is why every woman should have good male friends.
You can teach good habits
First of all, I get the chance to help them in their dating lives and relationships. I can point out their mistakes, and I can explain to them the things they’re doing right and wrong in a calm way that their wives and girlfriends—who are affected by these things—cannot explain because they’re too close to the issue.
