    Without a doubt! It takes a mutual agreement to decide this. However if you had to have the conversation of "are we just friends" then you both probably have more feelings for each other than "just friends."

    Yes for sure. Plenty of men and women do end up falling in love but others can definitely just be friends.

    Absolutely!  I have two best friends, and one of them is a man, and I am a woman.  We have been this way, friends, for the past 30 years.  And the same friendship that I share with him, I share with his wife and family members.  That is the key, I think.  If it is a male/female friendship, the same friendship that goes for one, goes for the couple, if it is a comples situation.

    It is possible. However, I don't think just any man can be friends with just any woman. If there's any sexual tension between the two, it will not work. I'm happily married and I have a female best friend. We're like brother and sister more than anything. Our friendship has lasted because we use each other as a source of insight about the opposite sex. If I'm having a problem in my relationship she helps me, and vice versa. I can be friends with her, but I wouldn't even attempt a friendship with most women I meet. Too much temptation.

    the answer should be yes smile
    as of now I had been through a lot of friendship involving the opposite sex and we did admit that were better off as friends than lovers. Friendship is more important than a senseless relationship that might actually break everything

    Yes they can...sometimes friendship with extra's ...depends on the situation of each individual how far the friendship extends.

    Yes - how many people want to be more than friends with most of the men in their lives?

    Yes. Two of my closest friends are male, one of whom I've known for nearly 15 years. There's never been any sexual chem or innuendo.. I see him as my brother, we talk about any and everything, go out sometimes and just get along really well.

    Of course. Why not. I have plenty of male friends i hang out with, but trying not to have a relationship with them.

    Yes, why not a man and a woman can BE very good friends just like man and man or a woman and woman.
