In modern society, we have engrained in us the notion that men and women cannot be friends. Such an idea owes to the 'fact' that men and women are completely opposite beings and have nothing in common. Many say that such a friendship cannot exist because in the end one person develops feelings for the other.
While there have been many girl and guy friend relationships that have gone sour due to the fact that someone catches feelings however, such a relationship can turn out to actually be symbiotic. Here are the benefits to such a relationship.
Having her on your arm provides far greater PR than having your "boys" around.
It always looks good if you have a girl by your side. Even if you are just going out for a few drinks with the goal of trying to court some women, it is more beneficial for you to go out with a lady friend than a group of bros. Your bros will be sure to make stupid comments that may deter your potential mate. You don't want to intimidate the girls around you by having your bros act immaturely and eventually scare off an potential talent.
