one of my best friends is a girl also. so definitely possible. and angel, i've been in that situation too, no bueno. i think it's just harder for guys to turn off that feeling of having to wife every cute girl they see.

So is there a difference for you between being friends with a guy compared to being friends with a girl? Maybe you treat each type of friendship differently.

And don't worry, I was just teasing you with a whimsical comment. You're a cutie - it'd be hard for our friendship to be platonic.

I've had a similar situation many times. I'm just an affectionate guy so my girl friends always think I had some feelings for them (which I did, in most cases). Anyway, I never crossed the boundary to becoming more than friends so it's all okay. However, I later learned that they reciprocated my feelings, some at the time I started getting to know them and others later down the road. So I think it's difficult to remain just friends without ever having feelings for the other. I think it's definitely possible, but at least one side usually has some wandering thoughts of "What if?"

I think they can.

I have this guy best friend in my old school in high school. I never got attracted to him or either him got attracted on me [since I never felt that way, lmao]. and I know his crush and he knows mine. so I guess men and women can be 'just friends'. though I experienced that kinda situation. this one guy became my best friend in classroom [he's my closest friend in the classroom] when we were in sophomore. he told everyone that I was like a sister to him and so I looked at him as a big bro. until I have to migrate and leave, we've always chat on fb. then just when I'm already far far away, he told me about his feelings o.o"

derp, because of both of my experiences, I guess some can remain 'just friends' and some can't resist it xD

Had a thought on this. Yes. Gay guys and lesbian girls are the answer. No sexual attraction to the opposite sex so they can be "just friends" without either party thinking they could be something more.

My best friend is a woman. No underlying sexual tension or anything. This might be different considering that I'm gay and she's lesbian. That being said I can have perfectly normal friendships with other males without having any other motives. Aside from my personal experience I do feel that men and women can "just be friends." Think about it...do you really want to do it with every woman you know?

I thinks men and women can be just friends. I'm friends with this guy and I don't have a crush on him what so ever and he has a crush on one of my friends so he definatly doesn't like me. So yes I think men and women can be just friends.

those who said no means they are attracted to all types of the opposite gender: fat,too skinny, white,black,old,ugly,too stupid etc which is impossible in my opinion
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?




aaaah... good point Cat
