Is it really possible for a man and woman to be “best friends” and just “best friends”?
John Prats-Angelica Panganiban, Enchong Dee-Bea Alonzo and Luis Manzano-Anne Curtis, to name a few, are the popular “besties” that are opposite sex.
Whenever people knew that my best friend is a guy, they would always ask “Is that possible?” They would even tease me that “Siguro may gusto sayo yun. (Maybe he likes you).” or “may gusto ka dun no? (You like him, noh?)”
Natatawa nalang ako. hihi Because for us two, it really is possible. My best friend is my brother that I never had. My parents even consider him as their son as well. We tell each other secrets, heartaches, rants and crazy stuff. It’s like I’ve found my boy version in him. hehe The comfort level is high that we consider ourselves as legit part of a family.
You know what, it’s actually a good thing to have a guy best friend. Below, I’ve listed my Top 3 reasons why I’m thankful with this kind of friendship:
- You have a go-to “guy point-of-view” adviser. Like whenever there are things I don’t understand about a guy, or there are certain situations that I want to get what a guy will think about it, I have a legit adviser. Hihi
- You have someone you can goof around. When you want to be just funny and goof around, do crazy stuff without “arte”, then you have a person to do it with you. Don’t get me wrong here, I know there are lots of girls who are fun to do crazy things with too, but guys are crazier and less or no “arte” at all. 😀
- You have someone who can slap you on the face with the truth, especially about guy problems. Well, not literally “slap you on the face” but who is straight-forward enough to tell you if you’re wrong or right. Don’t get me wrong again on this, but I know you know that guys are more rational than emotional in looking into things. So, with my best friend, it’s most likely just “you’re WRONG” or “you’re RIGHT” without “it depends if I like him or not”. No bias. Haha
So yes, a guy-girl best friend is really possible. Friendship that has no malice at all. Sa maniwala kayo o hindi (believe it or not). 😀 There is really a connection between a guy and a girl that is intended just for friendship, and ours is a living proof of that. 😀 After all, it is not the gender where the friendship is based. It is on how well both of you, your attitudes and craziness get along.
Hello, Listen! 😀
P.S. One nega thing about having a guy best friend is when you’re in a relationship. Hahaha Until your boyfriend understands and trusts you enough already, jealousy will always be an issue. LOL But that’s just temporary. Eventually, they will get along and together, they will bully you. haha
Do you also have a guy best friend? Or you’re a guy with a girl best friend? Do you agree that girl and a guy can be just best friends? Share mo naman experience mo sa comment. I’d love to read it. Ciao!
