    He's the Best

    I have always had a male best friend. Most of my friends are male in fact.  I like the male female relationship because my friend and I have more in common.  We both like sports, music, and debate.  It is hard to find a girl that likes sports as much as me so I...

    Me Too

    When I was 17 I told my best friend that I liked willies instead of muffies. He then told me that he could no longer be my friend. Now 23 years later, he will cross rather than speak to me. He even gets his boys to do the same.

    I Still Do!

    Lots of them, I have a few female friends but most of my close friends are male. About 12 or 13! literally! I love having the mix of the genders in my friendship group, you get a lot more perspective on a situation and I think its healthy to know and be close to both genders.

    My Best Guy

    I have a guy that's my best friend. I can tell him anything, and he won't ever judge me for it or lecture me. He always just calmly gives his advice. I have great conversations with him and he's just a joy to be around.
