Spending time with girls, going shopping, watching movies and etc. is very fun. Especially getting together to gossip, listen to each others' problems, giving advice is great. However, there are some things you can only hear from your closest male friend. Your girlfriends can ignore or soften some things not to upset you, or break your heart. However, you won't have this problem with your male friends. Your best male friend should be the only one you go to hear the truth, and only the truth.
