It’s much easier to go through the phase of “waiting for the right guy” when u have guy friends. Why have a mediocre guy or relationship that u don’t like to feel good about yourself. It’s so much better to have friends who understand you with little words, appreciate u and where you’ve been, and bring you up along the way. And you know that they are really genuine. It’s comforting. And means a lot when they compliment you. My guy friends are extremely valuable. They’ll never know how much.
