First things first, we know you don’t actually need a man. But it is nice to have some testosterone around sometimes, no? Outside of your man or man-to-be—who is hopefully your perfect combination of all these gents—these are the guys who are good to have around at various times; they can help you grow and…have fun.

The brother from another mother. Yes, it is totally possible to be close friends with a man and have no romantic feelings. In fact, the thought of kissing this dude makes you physically ill. He knows you very well, and isn’t afraid to pull your card when you’re not being true to yourself. Though you probably check in with each other every few weeks anyway, he’s also great to call for a man’s opinion when you’re dealing with man drama, and you repay the favor by helping him decipher his relationships.
