Quick question. How many male friends do you have? Wait, before you answer, we mean platonic male friends. And by that we mean, neither of you have romantic or sexual history with each other. Neither of you are attracted to one another either (you can find someone attractive and not be attracted to them). You trust each other completely and you know that when you offer up relationship advice, there’s no ulterior motive or shadiness lurking around.
There’s a bit more to the list, but for the most part, this is how we qualify a platonic male relationship. If you have even one or two of these in your life, count your blessings! They can be real lifesavers especially when you’re wondering how to get into a man’s mind. Plus, they’re not like your girlfriends. Girls sometimes have the tendency to see things how they want them to be, not how they are.
That’s why we’re HUGE FANS of going to guy friends for relationship advice. If you’ve never really thought about doing that before, here are some solid reasons why you should consult them before your girls...next time.
