Hey M Girls!

He's my best friend though. We even share secrets like who we are dating and stuff. Him and I have been talking and we think if we just don't hang out any more they'll leave us alone but we want to be friends still. Please help!"
And M Girl's answer is: "You shouldn't let other people decide who you're friends with. Girls and guys can definitely be best friends and there's nothing wrong with that! I know it might be hard but just try to ignore what other people are saying. They might just be jealous that you have a guy as your best friend. You shouldn't stop hanging out with someone just because other people are making fun of you. That will only show them that you let them get to you. Try to show them that you don't care and hopefully they'll stop. Good luck!"
