    I wouldn't say that it is impossible.  If they are both clear/open to one another that they are only going to be friends then it is possible.

    It's certainly possible. You have to allow however, for human nature. I have male friends whom I find attractive, but we have a clear understanding of our friendship so all bets are off the table. But I still find them attractive, they are attractive people. Most of the time this question is actually 'can a guy and a girl be friends without eventually sleeping with each other'.
    They certainly can. All it takes is a little self-control, confidence and acceptance smile

    Exactly. But sometimes even though boundaries have already been established, one of them still ends up falling. Always.And that is what making guy and girl friendship difficult and complicated. Almost impossible.

    I have guy friends who remind me of my brothers.  If someone really reminds you of a sibling, you can't see them as sexy.

    Not impossible, but not easy either. You have to be careful because people grow and change and develop feelings for each other - so be prepared if that happens. Also, always consider your bf/gf/spouse's feelings about your friendship. You can create jealousy issues with your loved one, which sometimes will lead to you having to abandon the friendship. Best to create a group and girls and guys that can all be "just friends".

    It is possible to have a genuine friendship with the opposite sex without having any romantic feelings, most people are suspicious though,. If a friendship is affecting your relationship, then you might have to reconsider if the friendship is worth more than the people who love and care for you.

    I believe that it is possible, but as I get older, I do acknowledge that it gets harder... as a kid, it didn't bother me at all.  Now, I find that it still doesn't typically bother me, but the guys tend to have a harder time with it.  Just sayin'.  Not a psychologist or anything here!

    No not impossible but who the hell wants to just be friends with a girl.

    I read somewhere that when men are in the presence of women that their bodies automatically and involuntarily prepare to have sexual intercourse with them.

    Not impossible...but very, very, very hard and getting "harder" all the time......smile.

    it is possible for the two opposite sex to be just friends.. big_smile that is in the meantime but if the other develops a feeling towards the other well that makes it impossible then

    No, it's not impossible-but if  a guy is young and his hormones are raging. . . .it's more difficult.

    It is impossible when both are singles and but seems possible when each of them is really sincere with someone else and they don't have a distance relatioship
