I'm a girl and my mom keeps telling me that it's weird to have a male best friend but I am pretty close with a guy right now and i treat him as my best friend. Do you think a relationship like this is feasible or should I only stick to my girls?

One of my very best friends is a girl, so it works both ways

my mom and your mom has a world apart of view when it comes to frienfship. The truth is when i told my mom i had guy friends she did not mind and even said it is fun to be with different people in a large group of frendships. She said and i think too that a guy and a girl can and will be able to maintain good friendship if they choose to do so.

Well depends, some say that this can happen, others don't.. How old are you? Not that your age make all the difference, but I remember that when I was younger, I still believed in this, but now I don't believe in a true relationship between a woman and a man. Because, in the end, always someone start to feel something for the other or when both start to marry and make a family, the wife or husband will not want that the partner have a best friend of the other gender..in the end, unless they have a very truly friendship, the friends get apart and the distance ends the friendship.

Yes, this is what my mom was saying. She said that a guy and a girl can't be bestfriends because it would end up that either one of the two will fall for the other. I am 21 by the way. Thanks for the response.

There is nothing wrong in becoming friends with a male genner. I have a male best friend and we get along really well, one should widen horizon and should not only stick to your friends ( I do not mean that you should forget them, but make new ones) is also good. My best friend and I get along really well, as a matter of fact sometimes men are more serious in maintaining friendship If he treats you one. Your friendship depends on the two of you, not by the people around.

It's cool to have boy-friends (male friends) I have some BFs when i was in university, they colored my life with jokes, gossips,lessons, and adventures. I feel more comfort to go out with them or one of them come along. BFs just like GF's theres nothing to be compare. both are same as long as they give good influence to us. I think you should talk to your mom that theres nothing wrong to have BF's just like BF's they r all set as social part of your life. If you hang only with GF's people may think that you don't like man :D
