It sucks for guys when they’re stuck in the friend zone with a girl they really like. But, it’s actually good for a teen guy to have female friends in his life. So, while you want to stay out of the friend zone with the girls you really like, there are several reasons why you want to work on friendships with the ladies too.
The first thing is that girls can be fun. While you probably may have more in common with your guy friends and find hanging out with them more fun (this is normal), there may be times when you actually want to hang with girls.
This doesn’t mean you have to shop or do makeup. But, there are some events where girls may be more fun than your guy friends, like concerts or other events where a girl may be more interested in the theme than any guy you know.
Second, girls are great because you can be attracted to them while still being their friend. This is normal and makes the relationship flirty and interesting, even if you have no plans to date each other anytime soon.
Having a friend who you feel attracted to can be fun, as long as both parties are OK with the situation. If one person wants more than this can be frustrating. So, be careful.
Finally, having friends who are girls can actually help you with dating other females. It makes you look safe and normal if you have friends who are girls. Other girls see that and know that you are, at the very least, not a weird creeper.
Girls tend to stay away from creepy guys. Most creepers only have guy friends. So, when you have those lady friends around you, it tells other girls that you’re cool. And, if a girl likes you and sees all your friends who are girls, she might even get jealous of the attention you are getting.
So, don’t discount those friends who are girls in your life. They can be great for companionship and even help you get a date in the long run.
