Is It Weird Or Wrong To Want A Close Guy Friend?

Haha maybe this is a weird question to ask. Maybe the answer(s) are obvious. I'm just curious as to what you all think.

I have a close friend who's a girl. I talk to her about almost anything, but for some reason, I've always wanted a close guy friend too. (I am a girl)
I mean, I have a brother who I see as a close friend too, but I don't want to smother him and take up time he could be spending with his friends.

I don't really know why exactly I want a guy friend so bad. It doesn't make much sense to me. I mean, I guess part of it is having a guy's perspective on things... but I feel like there's more to it than just that. I can't figure out exactly what it is.

So I guess what I'm curious to know is why do you have friends of the opposite sex?

it is the completion of a full circle

i have a lot of guy friends. and i mean really close ones. back in college, the guys in my class would hang out together and i would be the only girl who joins them. and boy do they talk a lot of things about anything under the sun. just like us girls. but im not the type to tell, i just listen and say some comments. they do respect that a lot if they could trust you. during grad school, i find it easier to deal with guy friends than with girls. they are easy to deal with, easy to talk to and they just go with the flow. nothing too serious. but if anything goes wrong, they can be quite caring in dealing with how you feel. once or twice i thought about the possibility of having a romantic relationship but it never really got there. its more like platonic...(maybe thats part of your curiostiy?) would be great to end up with someone whom you became bestfriends with first before the romance...thats a great foundation for any relationship. anways, some of them are married now but we still keep in touch and talk. so its not weird to want that...hope you could find the best of friendship with guys in the years ahead of you.

hey! thanks! and thanks for reading one of my posts. i think i know what that one is. c: this site is all about that in the first place. and i think its cool people you dont even know understand you and how you feel and connect with you, even if you have plenty of friends around. im still on the quest with the soulmate part. c: but im not making that my priority. sometimes things come when you least expect them. you just gotta trust. good luck with you and i hope you can share some updates with your quest c:
