I had lots of women friends at work and now retired still have a few women friends. I think immature people have a problem with putting *** into everything, but real adults can have life long friendships with either gender.

of course women and men can be friends :)!!! I have a best friend that's a guy and he is one of the trustworthy people I know. I can tell him anything and he keeps between me and him.

If one of them is married. OR if there is NO sexual attraction whatsoever. As in one or both of them is really unattractive.

Certainly. I am proof of it. My best friend is a woman. I call her my sister, and her kids, my niece and nephew. We've known each other for 33 years or so.

Of course.

Personally, I think it depends. But I've had a few friends who are guys.

If one doesn't want to take it to the next level then the other one does. Ladies, I suggest you flirt with your "platonic" friends once and see how quickly they want the next level.

Depending on the person you consider a friend, some will let you down though.

"Just be friends?" Why surely, but they can also be so much more. And one more thing. Once a man and woman move from being "just friends" to lovers, there is no going back to friends. Been there and done that.

sometimes you just want to socialize with the opposite gender, nothing wrong there

When circumstances simply do not admit of romantic eligibility, simple friendship remains.

Maybe not in bad '80s comedies and high school movies. But in real life, there's actually different types of people out there. Imagine that!

Of course they can. Just because people talk to each other doesn't mean they're going to want to get in each other's pants.

perhaps in some situations. for example I have never had any particular leanings towards my mother when I became of an age to have that sort of leanings but there always seemed to be a slight consideration of the possibility's in nearly all other male female relationships I have been in. But that should hardly mater some people are just plain not available so you don't consider it except in the most of hand manner..

Anymore, that completely depends on the morality of the people involved. I could say no and some would say yes. I would say that generally, sexual urges will come up and cause temptation. The response would be, "So what's wrong with that?"
So unless we all come from the same foundation, there won't be an agreement on this.

Real men and real women can. Those who harbor juvenile feelings and jealousy cannot.

Yes, of course, there are too many men out there stuck in the "friend zone" to say otherwise.
But that doesn't mean the guys don't fantasize about boning their friend one day.

If you don't think they can then you need to learn some self control because the opposite *** isn't always meant to be jumped(judging from the comments some of you need help).



Anyways. I think the friends of mine that last are men. They've always been very respectful of me and I was actually the only girl invited back to this thread that had all these guys I was friends with in middle school and elementary but hadn't seen in years. I've never really got along with girls. They tend to have interests in things that don't interest me(the only interest we may have in common is men) and in my experience their interest seem to be mostly about their superficial appearance or in talking about other people.
