Why can't girls have guys as best friends in middle school.

Ok so I am I girl and i've only have 2 friends which is a guy and a girl since my girl friend is not in the same class as me but I have my guy friend in my class we been friends since kindergarten and no one bothered about it, but when we got older people started saying I like him and we are dating and etc and that just makes me so angry and I cried all the time. but later I was bullied when my guy friend was in the hospitals and he was't out till the whole school year and it made me cry almost all night I felt that I was nothing and thought very scary things when he got back and up I felt very better and I felt like Im super happy I told him all about the bully problem and we got them expelled which I made me even better happier. I been sticking with him for a long time because I felt so safe with him but they said we were dating more often and I cry all the time bout that and he always help me get back up on my feet. why can't girls be friends with guys? if my friend was a girl would be care? I don't know why people are so mean to me please help and srry if this is way to long and thx.

Ignore them!

Me (I'm female) and my best friend (he's male) have been best friends since we were four years old! We are now 21. A best friend is a best friend. And you would be a rubbish best friend if you were to 'fall out' because OTHER people cannot accept the fact that you're friendly with someone of a different gender. They will grow out of it - and hopefully in five years time you will be laughing at them because they have had to find new friends and you two are still best friends!

I definetley have A LOT of guy friends I don't feel that anything's wrong with that I have sat with boys in class since 4th grade that's when I got homeschooled! Just ignore what people say if they say you can't have guy friends!
