In a simple answer: No

In a more complex answer: No way.

Yes, it is. The question was "can men and women be just friends?". They can. Simple.

Are you saying that people can only be friends with the same sex? Fuck that. Your experience does not equal a universal law.

I have some guy friends, we are just friends...I will never get into a relationship with them, it'll be too awkward. I'm pretty sure they think the same way.

Yes, they can. My best friend is a gal, and as cute as she may be, that certainly doesn't mean I'm going out with her. As for any question of her 'liking' me, I'd say the fact that she's had a bf and two gf's enough proof of lack of attraction. ^_^ There's more to life then sex, drugs and rock & roll...well, maybe the last one might not be true but the rest are!

I remember watching a video about some people doing a survey on whether or not men and women can be just friends. They asked people around a university and as the end result around 80% of all females believe they can while 80% of males believe they cant. Statistics dont lie :/

I think it's possible but attraction is going to come up on both or one end sooner or later. However there are both men and women a like who can find someone attractive but not act on those feelings. Does trying not to act on those feelings last, is the real test LOL.

I've been in that situation with someone who is still a good friend. we ended up kissing but my heart was focuses on another girl so we just let it be.

So its definitely possible. But for how long, right?

Yeah, I have a few, in fact. Not all guys think with their "second head"; those who don't, have no problem having female friends.

you are attracted to only a few types




You've got a point, but sooner or later I think one or the other might feel "something". Nonetheless, you're correct. Males and Females are capable of being just friends.




if we are best friends for a long time, i can't get how we would be attracted to each other even if they are so hot and beautiful..we would be like siblings.
we are not sexually attracted to our siblings,are we?

My best friend is female and we've been friends close to 15 years now. I suppose it really depends on which organ is in control of your decision making.

You never know, maybe one could have underlying feelings beyond mere friendship for the other but decides to keep it to themselves for their friends'/siblings' sake. Maybe not necessary that but perhaps something similar or even totally different.

Of course. One of my best childhood friends is female, and we're just that. Just friends.

I myself have been in situation where my friend was into me and told me finally that he couldn't just be friends with me anymore. because he wants me! lol.. i felt bad and suprised at the same time becz i didn't know thats hw he felt about me, i was sad at first bz i didn't feel taht way abt him and then we stopped talking becz he couldn't take it anymore.. but in my opinion i feel taht one can be just friends unless u develop feelings and u let the other person know it, then it just changes the whole friendship.
