I hardly meet up with my female friends and they are usually the gf's of my guy friends.

Just avoid getting tangled up into some next thing.

Men and Women can be friends & it can stay that way as well.
Although it's human nature to be attracted to the opposite sex, It simply doesn't mean you can go and fall
for every friend you have. Men and Women fall for others that have their same interest,look preference, Personality preference and etc.
Friends bond to spend time but not in a more intimate way, although the same thing can be said about being friends
but being friends is only about having someone else with your same interest, not someone you want to be with for more things.
I've had friends have crushes on me but most of my friends only see me as a little sister or so.
So,Yes,Men and women can be friends aslong both don't give a free opening for more.

If you're irritated by your male friend you can just say 'Dude you're such an ass...' and they'll be like :' lol, ok.' And you can get on.
With girls you can't say that because they'll f**king nag about what you've said and fight with you untill it's okay with them, three years later when you fight again they will bring it up again.

Deep topic! I think men and women can be friends in school, or at work or other social situations, however, it is not like, "Hey lets go fishing together" or go motorcycling together, or on her side, lets talk about boys together, or go hang out at the mall and shop for bra's together...

It never works out every well, especially if the bra you picked out for yourself does not show off your best quality's!! lol...just saying!

lol...no, I'm not that kind of guy!

What a silly question. Of course they can't. Men are friendly for women for one reason, and one reason only. Ask any man who says he has "female friends", whether he would sleep with them if he were unattached, and they were willing. The answer is certainly yes, and if he says no, he's a lying bastard.

That makes no sense. Being friendly with the sole intention of having sex is not the same as having sex with a friend. Of course being friends with someone increases the chance of sex - your friends are likeable and you spend a bunch of time around them. But that doesn't mean that the only reason to be friends is because you might eventually get some sex out of it, or else why bother with forming friendships with people you would never have sex with in a million years?

Being willing to eat what is offered is very different than only showing up for the food.

Yes. Even if they are attracted to each other, they can still be friends. The question should be, is it possible for friendship to exist between a straight man and woman without at least one of them falling for the other?

They can be if their feelings for each other is only friendship wise


so if I have a crush on someone... I can't be friends with them?

I have plenty of female friends, in fact I'm picking up cupcakes and stuff tomorrow to help celebrate my friend's little sister's 18th birthday at the nightclub I work at.

Look past gender and just enjoy being friends with people without ulterior motives and life gets a hell of a lot better.
