I think relationships between girls and guys can also depend on the age. When you are younger (<13?) it comes naturally to be friends with the opposite gender. However, when you are a young teenager you can start experiencing new feelings which you may place on to your friend. I think that in later teenager years people have learnt to understand these feelings better and can start having friendships with the opposite gender again. I may be wrong here!

I had one really close female friend. I still speak to her, though not as much as I used to. She had a crush on my mate but as far as I know we had no fellings like that for each other.

I'm the worst. I'm pretty sure I've harbored some sort of feelings for every girl I've genuinely gotten to know. It is in the act of knowing them, watching their unique existence, that I capture and track the beauty of their life. And from this... approval of their existence... I find the strength to share my abilities with them, for a smile or two, when they ask it of me. It isn't love, but it is a sort of attraction that keeps me from forgetting what working intimately with girls feels like. Even if getting "used" leaves bittersweet longing, I've come to terms with the fact that it keeps me from growing cold.

But I have had moments where I look at a good friend and find myself extrememly thankful for what they've already shared with me. But moments pass and I move on.

Almost all my friends are girls. And the guys that become close friends with me are either fellow losers or ones with overbearing personalities that tend to piss off everyone, that I don't mind. If I didn't learn to control myself and use my skull-noodle, I wouldn't be a very good man at all.

K I'm going to play Devils Advocate here.




For the most part no. If you haven't read the Ladder Theory you should.

http://www.laddertheory.com/

The reason I say "for the most part no." is because if you find said person attractive at all it wont work, and why else do guys aproach girls? We find them attractive and hope to hook up with them that's why. Are there exceptions? Of course. If you met this girl friend before you're really attracted to girls then it would probably work out.

Having no feelings between two very close friends, unless the friend is really...ugly, then there will always be something in between.

It's possible, but rare. I have one really really good friend, and we're both pretty sure we don't have any non-platonic feelings for each other.

Anyway from what I've seen the usual case is that one of the friends or both of them will feel somewhat attracted to the other but not enough so that they would act on the attraction they feel or want to become more than friends.

In my experiance, no guy truly WANTS to be "friends" if a girl sticks you in the F-zone most guys I know hang around hoping in the back of thier head, that might change. believe me, if the chance came up, you'd take. If not, then it's mostly to catch one of thier cute friends.

It is most definate that a boy and a girl can be great and close friends. How it`s possible is that I`m close with many of my guy friends, and they`ve stuck with me through so many years of my life.

But, there are times where they will start to fall for each other. But really, it`s always bound to happen mainly. Just because that`s just how life and people work. But, it really just brings surprises mainly, so yeah.

Girls and boys can be friends or they could just be in love.
