24 Things Your Guy Best Friend Does , Which You Should Thank Him For

Any day, every day, you will end up choosing him over any other guy in your friend circle. Sometimes you would even choose him over your boyfriend. Did you even ask why?

Of course for the drama less bond you share with him; for the umpteen number of times you have been an ass and he has still adored you. Have you ever told him a thank you for that?

Table of Contents

He deserves to be thanked endlessly, and here’s just a starter’s list of reasons why.

1. Thank you for broing out with me when I needed it the most.

Be it a break-up or a bad day at the office, you have never failed to make even the crappiest of days better, just by being your goofy self and my BFF.

2. Thank you for letting me be one of your guy friends (almost!)

You have never treated me like a girl whenever we were together, and have always looked at me like one of your bros. You made me realize that a guy can also have a girl as his best friend, and that does not make him any less of a man.

3. Thank you for letting me sleep in your bed without hitting on me.

Thank God, you were never one of those guys who feel entitled to hit on their female friends, just because they are close. Sleeping in the same bed without making it awkward, is one of the best things you have done for our friendship.

4. Thank you for gifting me a drama-free friendship.

Life is complicated and chaotic as it is, so thank you for creating a peaceful space whenever we are together. No matter what happens, you have always made me feel safe and protected in our friendship.

5. Thank you for helping me distinguish fake people from genuine ones.

Me being the biggest idiot there is, time and again, I have trusted the wrong people. But, you have always been there to look out for me by helping me weed out the fake ones from the genuine ones.

6. Thank you for grossing me out with stories I would rather not hear.

Men are gross and like it not, that’s the universal truth. You are no different, and thank you for upholding that truth by forcing me to listen to all your gross stories, day after day!

 

7. Also thank you for not getting grossed out by my tears and snot every time my heart broke. I promise I won’t wipe them on your t-shirt again.

Break-ups can get really ugly, especially when it comes to me. Even though I have ruined a lot of your favorite t-shirts due to my tears and snot, you have never made me feel that I am alone in my pain.

8. Thank you for helping me perceive things from a guy’s perspective. I had no idea how clueless I was about guy things.

They say, ‘Men are from Mars, and women are from Venus’, and this cannot be truer. But, I am lucky that I have you to teach me how a guy thinks and functions. After all, I need to win over my crush!

9. Thank you for translating impossibly cryptic guy code in text messages.

Men can be really difficult to understand at times, but not when I have you! Cheers to you for all those times, when you have helped me understand all the complicated and cryptic text messages sent by them.

10. Thank you for telling me when I really look good.

As my best friend, one of the best things that you do for me is by telling me, when I genuinely look good. You have never lied to me and that has ALWAYS prevented me from making a fool out of myself in front of others.

11. Thank you for being my assistant, no matter how disastrous.

Being an assistant is no joke, and even if you were a really crappy one, you still tried your best. Taking care of every need, no matter how insignificant, you were the best, best friend ever.

12. And thank you for letting me be your wing woman, no matter how catastrophic.

You have always trusted my judgement when it comes to women because you know that I only want the best for you. I might have been a bad wing woman, this fact still stands.

13. Thank you for not cringing or feeling awkward when I mentioned ‘vagina’ or ‘period’.

Most of the time, men tend to get grossed out when women openly talk about their periods and vagina. But, you are not one of those men. You have never made me feel uncomfortable whenever I have complained about my menstrual cramps, so thank you for that!

14. Thank you for always telling the truth on my face, without sugarcoating stuff.

You have always been brutally honest with me because you knew what I needed to hear and when. That has always helped me to come to terms with how things actually are.

15. Thank you for eating bags of junk foods with me, making me feel no guilt about my diet choices.

I have always been the biggest binger, while you sweat it out at the gym every day. But, that has never stopped you from eating tons and tons of junk food with me, to make me feel better about my repeated diet failures.

16. But also, thanks for sacrificing that last slice of pizza for me.

The last slice of pizza has always been a very volatile thing, but thank you or always leaving that for me. That is probably the most important and special thing, that you do for me.

17. Thank you for seeing me for who I actually am and not treating me as an object.

You have always appreciated and acknowledged me as a human being first and a woman, second. A very big thank you for not objectifying me every step of the way, like most guys out there.

18. Thank you for hanging out with me just for the sake of it.

Even when I had nothing to do, and you had lots to do, you chose to hang out with me to make me feel a little less alone. Selfishness was never a thing for you.

19. Thank you for telling me my text is utter bullshit.

One of the best things about you is that you never sugarcoat things or give false hope. When my texts are the absolute worst, you have always openly expressed that to me.

20. Thank you for teaching me weight lifting at the gym (It was fun!).

I had never thought that I would be doing bicep curls with a pair of 5 kg dumbells. But thanks to you, I can now do that so effortlessly.

21. Thank you for always treating me with care and understanding.

I know that I am a strong person, but like everyone else, I also have bad days. Those bad days become easier when I have you by my side. Thank you for always understanding me and caring for me so much.

22. Thank you for listening to my problems, no matter how ridiculous they were.

Thank you for all those days, when I have whined and whined and whined. And you have listened and listened and listened. I am so lucky to have you as my constant soundboard.

23. Thank you for giving me straightforward, down to earth advice.

Whenever I have been stuck in a bad or problematic situation, you have always had my back with your truthful and mature advice. I never say this enough, but your advice has made me into a better person.

24. Thank you for being living proof that boys and girls can be really great friends.

Last but not least, you have taught me one of the most important in life, and that is, boys and girls, CAN be just friends. And great friends at that!
