Can a men and women be friends forever?
What is your opinion on the issue?
Being friends forever with the opposite sex isn't as easy as it seems. As much as we want to remain friends with that person, sometimes things happen are out of our control. A jealous spouse or partner can sometimes throw a 'monkey wrench' into the mix. This can force a person to make the decision to walk away from the friend in order to repair the relationship with the spouse. In some cases, luck has it that the friend will always be there no matter how much time has gone by since they last talked.
Sometimes, it's hard to see the boundaries between friendship and relationship. People grow and sometimes drift apart but they also can grow closer together, and without even realizing it...fall in love.
Its indeed a very insightful response here. Its really tough to compartmentalize the feelings. But then the priority matters I think. The relationship or friendship with the opposite sex is what depends on individual perspective for me at least. Your view is much appreciated here.
Forever . . . hmmm, now that is a very interesting question. And landscaperartist really brought home some good points to ponder. Well, I really believe they can, if it is indeed a true friendship, and it is sometimes the best of friends who wind up being the love of their lives, as I have seen this happen many times before. I believe before one finds that true one in this life, they have to be friends, and if they wind up married or whatever for the rest of their lives, then the answer is, yes. To me, who better than your best friend in your life, to be your spouse, partner, etc. "forever."
Dear Faith, thanks for your kind response here. But my concern is whether is it possible to retain only friendship among the opposite sex not going to the marital sphere. Is it possible to remain friends for ever?
what is your take there?
Well, I have been married since the age of 19, but I still have friends who are males, and so far they have been my very good friends until this date, so far I guess that is forever. There is a very fine line, and I do know in my heart 99% of my friends of the opposite sex, most likely would truly like to be more than just friends, and maybe that is how God has wired men . . . it is just in their genetics to most likely want to be more than JUST friends? It may be best to get a man's perspective on this issue, as we do really know how there brains are wired . . . but maybe we don't being I am a woman.
Its indeed a very insightful response here. Ha ha ha ha.
