10 Reasons Why All Girls Need Guy Friends.

Hello guys!

So recently I think my Facebook friends and people whom I follow on Tumblr decided to spam my newsfeed with articles and quotes on how wonderful and fluffy the world would be without guys. Here are some of them:

I have quite a few guy friends. And they are quite nice to me. So, because I have, contrary to popular belief, a conscience, I felt minorly sad for them. So, to show them how much I appreciate them, here is...

#1 They help you through break ups.

They are tough. But I found out that guys have a protocol for this. Girls call it shopping. Guys they call it "We are going to meet and we are going to drink a lot of alcohol. And all your alcohol will be free."

Free drinks - possibly the best, or only good part of breaking up seriously.

#2 They drink beer.

(Via Imgfave).
"Jon, I don't like to drink beer but I want this beer bottle because it says "Everywhere since 1988"."
"Okay I help you drink."

"James, I don't like to drink beer but I want this beer bottle because it's nice and says Singapore."
"Okay I help you drink."
And they get very confused as to why you even have to ask.

#3 They are good bitching buddies.

Guy friends are good because unbeknownst to many, lots of people bitch to guys and they just kind of sit there and soak in all the gossip. So when you start telling your good guy friend about what a princess so-and-so is being, they can add on with all the additional details that they have absorbed from other sources. It's like squeezing water from a sponge.

#4 They will never show you up.

Because guys are mostly predictable, you know what they will be wearing when you meet them. 90% of the time they will be in t-shirt and jeans. Which is why you don't have to worry about coordinating your outfit with theirs. You know, like when Nessie and I meet we would first have this conversation which goes along the lines of...
So you know, neither of your outfits will show the other one up. #considerate.

When you meet guy friends, you know that they will turn up in t-shirt and jeans. Or t-shirt and berms. Or shirt and jeans. Or shirt and pants if they come from work. So it doesn't really matter if you decide on wearing shorts or jeans or a skirt or a dress. Because you're a girl so everyone will blame the guy on dressing up/dressing down anyway.

#5 They listen.

Well, my guy friends do anyway. Crisis at 2 am? Guy friend will be there to read all your ranting in caps on Google Hangout. For reference, my ranting will go something like this.
Actually my guy friends are very good. I remember maybe about 5 years ago I called ZiXing up at like 3 am because I couldn't sleep and wanted to complain about my life because I had seen my then boyfriend making out with another girl. And he woke up just to listen to my incessant complaining and shrieking. At 3 am in the morning. I assume I must have scared him.

But, I understand from many friends that they don't feel that guys listen to them when they talk. Well, there are of course, two simple solutions for that:

1) Make them scared of you.
2) Talk louder.

#6 They are "steady".

I have found out that my guy friends are what Singaporeans would describe as "steady". In other words, they don't back out on you. I specifically say "my guy friends" because I understand that your guy friends may be idiots.

A few weeks ago, I was having a bad day. So obviously, the solution was to consume copious amounts of alcohol.
HOW CAN ANYONE BE THIS AMOUNT OF WIN OK. But then again, in my defence...

#7 They provide you with constructive comments.

Well, most of the time anyway. Today, I would have gotten fired if not for some very helpful work related feedback from one of my guy friends.

#8 They help you carry things.

With good guy friends, who needs maids?

#9 They can keep up with your drinking.

(Via Metro).

Girls are very fun. But sometimes you want to drink lots of alcohol with someone. And you want this someone to maintain the same level of sobriety as you as the night progresses and doesn't need you to hold their hair when they puke. Enter guy friends. They are the best at this. Unless your name is *****. Then maybe not. (You know who you are.)

#10 They boost your morale.

So the thing about guy friends is that they know that the universe can be crappy and horrible, and things don't always go your way. Luckily, they can make this all better by saying things like...
Yeah. All those people who assume that girls are difficult to please clearly need to get a reality check. Also my cup, good ah? Jon bought it from Urban Outfitters.

Okay so guys, I just want to thank you for being there to hear my ranting, whining, complaining, and tolerating my many bouts of insanity. Also thank you for all the times you've sent me home and all the drinks that you have sponsored over the years. Also thank you for disallowing me to sponsor your drinks so that I can spend my money on Forever 21 and Topshop instead. I love you.
Oh and also for the times that you have helped me chase weird people away. Yes. Important. And now I would like to leave you with this very appropriate song.

Oops, wrong song.

Boys, boys, boys, we like boys in cars 
Boys, boys, boys, buy us drinks in bars 
Boys, boys, boys with hairspray and denim 
And boys, boys, boys, we love them, we love them!

Happy rest of the week guys!
❤ Jac.
