this past thursday while out watching the browns game on west 6th i was sitting in between the klutz and the jerk when a very drunken boy came up to me all douchebaggy like hugging on me and tell me i smelled good. blah blah blah.
i look at the jerk (one of my good guy friends) for help. i shot him "the look" - the one that says you better pretend to be my boyfriend right now to get this guy away from me look. and what does he do? he GETS UP and leaves me!
i wanted to murder him. but he insists that he was trying to do me a favor. um, no.
so after i got rid of the drunk douchbaggy boy i promptly gave the jerk a nice lecture saying he committed a huge FAIL in the world of being a guy friend. causing a whole conversation about what he is "supposed" to do in situations like that. i.e. save me!
which turned into me writing a full out pro and con list of being a single girl with many many guy friends according to me.
pro: you can always call a guy friend up to move heavy furniture
con: they will expect you to cook them dinner as payment
pro: guy friends are always up for watching sports or going out on a random week night
con: the boys at the bar will think you are dating him and are in turn unavailable
pro: you can be yourself around them because you're not looking to hook up
con: because you are being yourself (obviously awesome) the boy could fall for you
--the above pro and con goes boy/girl and girl/boy
pro: your guy friend, if single can mingle with all your single girlfriends
con: if it doesn't work out you have two potentially angry friends to deal with
pro: said guy friend can scare away jerky/bad boys
con: said guy friend can scare away perfectly nice cute rich boys
pro: boys like to gossip just as much as girls do
con: there isn't a con, who doesn't like good fun conversation?
pro: it's good to have a confidant that's the opposite sex for a different perspective
con: boys generally don't like to listen to girl's bullshit
pro: gay best friends are ideal
con: you must remember that you will NEVER turn them straight
pro: can turn into friends with benefits
con: can turn into friends with benefits
with all this being, said pros and cons aside - i wouldn't trade any of my guy friends in. the pros definitely out weigh the cons.
have any pros/cons i should add to my list?
