Is it easier to be friends with guys or girls?
For me it was always guys. All through school, my best friends -- save one bff, were boys. Boys you can trust. Boys don't envy you. Boys have your back.
Not that girls can't do the same thing.... I have one best friend from HS who still has my back, even if it's long distance over the phone.
But there is one problem with the whole guys as friends thing.
Boys who are friends can develop into something else entirely, which can either be a great thing or a not so good thing. And you risk that awkwardness if and when you start to like your guy friend as more than, but he's not thinking that way at all.
So what about you guys? Did you ever or do you have a best friend who's a guy? Did you ever have a guy friend turn into something else...? (And just for the record, I don't mean a frog.)
Inquiring minds want to know...
