There are plenty of girls who I like hanging out with that I do not want to have sex with. They are generally a 5-7 in looks, are decent arm candy, cool, intelligent...just not my type. If anything it gets me laid more than hanging out with all guys. Other girls see that you have plenty of girls around. They introduce you to other chicks (roommates, coworkers, friends).
oh I have lots of women around me, and I get along great with basically all of them....I just don't consider them friends. I file them differently. When other women see you with a bunch of female friends the assumption is either that you are gay, or, when they try and set you up with someone, then 'if he's so great, why aren't you fucking him?' - neither assumption works for me, so the cap is in place. That said, a couple of the girls I am around most come in very handy as wings, cos it doesn't matter how ugly the friend of the target may be, they are willing to jump on that grenade for me, even when the boys are backing slowly slowly away. I have one pig ugly best friend of hot chick specifically in mind at the moment, my One Female Friend has been remarkably useful there
