Re: Can Men and Women only be Friends?

I have more male friends than women friends and yes it is possible. I don't think most go around looking at others se #ually.

I have many male friends. I think people over-emphasize the attraction thing with men only wanting to be friends with a woman for one thing. We are all part of the human race and I treasure my male friends. I already have a husband and I'm not looking for another one.

ditto

I have 1/2 a dozen of very good male friends. It is strictly platonic. I talk to one or two of them multiple times a week. They are both married and their wives know. My husband knows. There is no jealousy at all.

Re: Can Men and Women only be Friends?

Yes, you can have wonderful male or female friends. If they want more ... tell them right then that they are just friends. If they stay ... they will be friends for life.

Re: Can Men and Women only be Friends?

I have always had more male friends than female friends. Of course many of them are gay but I think it is nonsense that men and women can't be just friends. I have seen it and done just that many times.

Sure they can.

I've always had at least 1 or 2 good male friends.

Re: Can Men and Women only be Friends?

i have always had men friends but i now realize most of those relationships there was always a hidden agenda with them.

some of them were married, i never questioned their motives and they never tried anything funny or made a move so we just stayed friends.

Re: Can Men and Women only be Friends?

I've had many platonic relationships with straight guys I've worked with over the years.

Only one I had well, yeah, he was hot, hot.....I'll admit it. My mind went there but nothing ever came of it. {#emotions_dlg.blushing}

And you had to remind me!! {#emotions_dlg.laugh}
