9 Things Girls with Guy Best Friends Understand

There are some things that only girls with guy best friends understand. We love them, we hate them, and sometimes we want to punch them in the face. If you have a guy as a best friend, or multiple guy friends, you know there are some things that you’ve become accustomed with. You have a hard time explaining your relationship to other people (because they always think there is something romantic going on) but you don’t need other people to understand it. You just need it to be exactly the way it is.

1.)  You have become the best wing woman ever. In the absence of a common bro, you have had the opportunity to show your guy friends the ideal way to talk to the opposite sex. After the success of a few phone  numbers, you are now the number one person to call any time your boys want to go out.

2.) Your humor is sometimes ill-received by girls. Who wouldn’t think blowing bubbles in your chocolate milk was hilarious? Oh… Your sister? That’s her problem.

3.) You don’t know how to girl. When it comes down to the nitty gritty of having to get dressed up for a date or an interview, you normally have to defer to your bow-wearing girl friend in order to know what to wear. And makeup? You try. You really do. But it took 3 weeks to learn eyeliner and you don’t have time for that in your life.

4.) You get way too excited about football, and when you go to games with your girlfriends you “embarrass” them because you “yell too loud” and “jump around too much”, but if you can scream and chest bump after a touch down, why even go?

5.) You are terrible at making plans. With your guy friends, you just go with the flow and whenever an opportunity arises to do something legend….wait for it….. dary, then you go and do. When you hang out with girls you have to have a detailed itinerary and stick to it. Which you don’t mind, but you are habitually late and forgetful so it normally doesn’t go too well.

6.) Your idea of a great place to get dinner with your friend group is Buffalo Wild Wings (because 65 cent wing night, duh). And most girls you try to rope into that only say yes if they think that there will be cute guys. Ugh.

7.) You can always count on your guys to find you a date anytime you feel like going out. And if it comes down to the wire and you need a date to your friend’s wedding, one of them will gladly step in and be your faux beau so that your friend’s family won’t ask you why you’re {still} single.

8.) You have a group of ‘big brothers’ who always make sure that you are happy and safe and will beat up anyone who interferes with that. Yes, they still are terrible influences but they’re always going to make sure you’re taken care of.

9.) People always ask if you’re dating one of your guy friends to which you both promptly respond:

But at the end of the day, you know that you wouldn’t trade your guy best friends for anything. You love the girls in your life, but the boys are the ones who keep you grounded, make sure you’re protected, and will always accept you when you want to nerd out and watch all 6 Star Wars films in one weekend. They’re the goofy brothers you always wished you had and that’s worth all the trials and tribulations that comes with being the only girl in the group.
