Yeah, yeah, they say-- men and women can't be just friends (we all remember "When Harry Met Sally"). But isn't that kind of thinking outdated? Guys, I think we all need to have at least one friend who is a woman – and here's why:

Women friends are an important source of information and advice about other women: True female friends can give amazing dating and relationship advice that guy friends just can't offer.

Clothes shopping buddies: Not only will a woman follow you into any men's clothing store, but she will honestly tell you what looks good and what doesn't.

Women friends give you social standing with other women: Yes, she can introduce you to her friends, but when other women see how you interact with your women friends it gives them an understanding of your true nature. (TheDudeSociety.com)

Men and Women can be friends--you just gotta have those ol' boundaries!!!
