Whoever said that two people of opposite sex can’t be platonic friends were absolutely wrong! What better than having a best friend who knows you just too well, is your confidant, and is of the other gender? If you still aren’t convinced, we tell you how awesome is a girl-boy BFF (best friend forever) duo.
Reasons To Have A Best Friend Of The Opposite Sex
1. It’s Double The Fun
Your best friend will probably have an all different idea about fun. He/she will open the doors for you to explore various versions of fun you were totally unaware of. You may even end up discovering a new hobby you never knew you were good at! Time to think beyond shopping and try some gaming or vice-versa.
2. A Panda Hug With No Hidden Agenda
Sometimes, all you need is a big bear hug to feel the world’s still a good place. And nothing can be more comforting than getting it from your BFF of the opposite sex. No hidden agenda, only pure care and a lot of coziness.
3. The Non-existent Drama Quotient
In most of the cases, best friends of same-sex have at least a few things which they never talk about. Call it vying or just the normal tendency of their gender, there is a lot of drama. Well, not anymore, if your friend is of the other sex! They tell you, you are wrong when you are and don’t give a damn about your tantrums. That gets things straight and cuts down on a lot a drama.
4. A Fashion Police By Your Side
Unlike a friend of the same sex, you don’t have to validate your looks 100 times to actually make sure it’s good. The best friend of the other sex is honest about how you look and is sure that an honest advice won’t cause a harm to your relationship. Moreover, he/she doesn’t want to hang out with someone who looks like a buffoon.
5. A Fake Emergency Date On The Go
Got a boring event to attend or do not want to appear like a loser at a family gathering? You have by your side, your best friend, who can pretend to be your date and put an end to your woes. Moreover, imagine the amount of fun you would have eating, drinking, and dancing together without being judged! And if one of you passes out, well, a reliable chauffeur is at your instant service.
6. The No-filter Humor
