9 Problems Only Guys With A Female Best Friend Will understand

Source

It just so happens that some men have almost as many, if not more female friends, as they have male friends. Truth be told, a friend is a friend and the whole concept of whether it’s a guy or a girl in this context is a bit regressive, but not everyone feels this way. Therein lays our problem for today: There is literally a shitload of crap that one has to put up with simply because one has several female bros (I know it’s an oxymoron, but you get me!) I am frankly more than over, the practice of labeling any and all platonic relationships between a man and a woman as; brother-sister, boyfriend-girlfriend or wife-husband. When someone uses the phrase ‘Just friends’ in all honesty, it means just that! It means the two are just friends... at least for now! My parents could adopt her the next month and legally make her my sister, I could marry her the year after and we could make babies, but that’s beside the point. The point here is that it’s basically no one’s god dammed business. Now before we get carried away, let’s take a look at the list of problems guys with female friends face!

1. Everyone thinks you’re a couple

When I say everyone; I mean every-effing-one! Your friends, your parents, your neighbors, your society guard, the shopkeeper you buy milk from, the waiter at the restaurant you two frequent, just about... everyone! And this is a serious problem because other attractive single girls might get the wrong message too and that in the world of single men is heresy!

2. People want to tell you what she’s "really" like

Then there is always a bunch of douches that think every girl has loose morals and somehow manage to dole out random trivia about your friend being, I quote “characterless”! Why do they think this is OK? Why are they surprised when you punch them in the nose? Because they’re a breed of people who think girls can never be friends and that hanging out with a girl you’re not dating has to be a means to one you want to. To all such ignorant and oblivious guys out there I say; good luck with life man.

3. The why are you not ‘hitting that’ battalion

These are the “Playas” of the world and frankly I think they are more irritating than the douches. At least the douches are ignorant and you can try to reason with them but not with these studs. These guys believe men were put on this planet, stuffed with testosterone and muscles for one true purpose: to bone. Now the funniest part is that not a lot of girls fall for clowns like them; contrary to what they’d have you believe. Underneath all that machismo and bravado is a boy with such low self esteem that he has a constant need of self assurance. Forgive him.

4. Other guys want you to help them hook up with her

Now while this is a perfectly understandable request at a bro level, one has to be careful about complying with it. Firstly if she wanted to hook up with a friend of mine she would have told me so, secondly one should never undertake such matchmaking projects without consulting with both parties. In fact it’s best to not be the middle man ever, unless you strongly believe the two could hit it off. Because if they don’t, you’re going to hear about it... from both of them! See why this is a big problem?

If I had a thousand bucks for every time someone shared their observation with me and told me that I had been friend-zoned by xyz, I’d own a penthouse perched atop the Eiffel Tower and at least two bungalows each in Venice & Florence. Only those who land up in the dreaded friend-zone by choice know how awesome it can be. Okay, I know I’d hate to be just friends with a girl I have a crush on but not with this girl! I mean she’s my friend; the only zone we’re supposed to share is that of absolute love and friendship.

6. Hot girls assume you’re safe and want to be ‘Really good friends”

This is what you call the mother of all evils. When you’re friends with too many pretty girls and suddenly become invisible as a full grown man to her hot friends. This of course is your own fault to a large extent, but sometimes you make mistakes. After all you’re only human. My two cents of advice would be state your intentions as soon as you’re aware of them. At least tell the common friend- information flows freely in such situations ;)

7. You often end up playing dad

Now despite the fact that you’re a total feminist most of the time there are some drunken nights, during which you crack. While you’d love it if women could safely roam the streets at 3 am after having consumed copious amounts of alcohol; this is India. Hence there are times when you just have to break the party up and explain how it’s one thing have your freedom and quite another to jump into fire. This is one of those situations where you have to be the party pooper and everyone hates you for it. Don’t be overly protective thought; that just sucks!

8. That awkward moment when she falls for you or vice versa

This one has to be right up there at the top of the list bad things that happen to friendships. Now while at rare occasions this could work out, most of the time it doesn't. And it sucks because you were both the best of friends and once, one person confesses that they want to be more than friends; it’s unsettling. Because you told them tons of things only because they were friends, you would never tell them to a girl you were to woo.

9. Loads of guys hate you

You can’t escape this one, no matter how good your people skills are. There will be guys who will hate you with all their heart because they think you've stolen the girl of their dreams from right under their noses. Now nothing could be further from the truth and you’re actually doing them a favor by letting them blame you. Because if you weren't there, they would have surely gotten their frail hearts shattered. So stiffen up that upper lip and take their hate like the real man you are.
