Can guys and girls truly be friends?
There seems to be a never-ending debate over this age-old question: Can a woman and a man really be just friends?
If the balance turns to the affectionate side then you are in trouble. Since both sexes are there to give and take... it depends how far you wanna go as friends.
Of Course, and it lasts nicely than other relationships......... of course no lust, if you know how to handle and give meaning to the status that rarely can be able.
of course. I have male childhood friends and we are still friends until now. We are constantly communicating. I always love when we reminisce our childhood. It was fun. ^_^
I have a lot of male friends whom I feel nothing for and would not feel anything for them in hundred years. I don't mean to be rude, but the truth and the answer to me is yes!
For most times and cases I would say no, Since they are diferrent sex gender they have diferrent intreset, way of thinking, diferrent type of things they wanted to do. even if they started as friends it might change later to something else. but there have been some cases were it worked and they were really friends but again it depend on alot of factors such as culture, how they have been raised, etc...
Well, it depends on your definition of a 'friend'.
A man and a woman can be 'just' friends. But, i'd prefer friendship with same sex cos friendship with the opposite sex sometimes may lead to 'other things' or may get out of hand, or even may become intimate[sexual] which goes beyond the meaning of friend. Thanks
As a woman I say YES! I have plenty of close male friends whom I have never ever intended to go any further with. Just nice friendship.
On the other hand I have asked men about this, and they often have a different point of view. They often (almost always) would sleep with their female friends if they got the chance, or at least they have thought about it. Or their close friends of opposite sex are someone that they have had another type of relathionship before, and now that it is over they are just good friends....
Yes of course, friendship does not consider gender difference. In fact in my opinion they can be better than same gender friends.
I think so. If you both enjoy each others company and there's no spark or sexual attraction then yes you can just be friends.
It's different for guys and girls.
For girls, yes, we love to have friends (doesn't matter what gender). Actually, we put guys into two categories, willing to date or never date. So, guys that are friends we never want to be with them. So in a girl's mind, guy friends are truly friends.
For guys (unless he is gay), no, they don't like to start friendships with girls if they are not interested. So for guys they don't just have friendships with girls, it's almost always for something else (sex, potential gf).
I'm sure it depends on the two individuals. It's been difficult for me not to try to turn guy friends into boyfriends and friends-with-benefits territory always leaves me wanting more. But that's just me. In general, I would say you can be friends with anyone as long as you are both on the same page and know who you both are at heart.

I'm from Alabama so my friends pick on me sometimes, and I'm really shy so I get tongue-tied alot, but they're always saying how cute they think it is, especially my northerner guy friends, so I just wanted your opinion does a southern accent turn you off, or do you think it's cute? Also my accent...

I have some online male friends, mostly single by divorce. As a married woman, I always tell them my marital status. The first time, our friendship was good, we had chit chat to kill spare time. I enjoy having friendship of different gender as most men speak their mind. Finally,...

Can a guy be friends with a gal? My grandparents often said, "the mouse was a friend to the cheese and the mouse ate the cheese!" Can men and women remain strictly friends?
