    Is it a right thing, to do friendship with a person, opposite to our gender?

    I may not be sure, whether, I can continue my friendship, with my friend, because, someday or the other, I have to quit it, for some reason.

    The man or woman who will not make friends with a person of the opposite sex is missing out on a lot of friends.   Let's face it - half the population of the world is made up of people of opposite gender!

    Perhaps you are worried that someone close to you might be jealous (i.e. fearful) of your friendship with someone of the opposite sex.   This is understandable.  But that emotion lies within the person who is reacting with jealousy not you.    All you can do is ensure that you do not give so much attention to your new friend that you bring this about.

      I have seen people, expressing their views freely with the people of opposite sex, than with their same gender friends. This arises some jealous in the people of same gender.

    Each of us chooses our own friends, lovers, and spouse.
    There is nothing wrong with having friends of the opposite sex.
    However issues can arise if one friend has a (secret crush) on the other or if one person settles into a relationship/marriage where their mate  gives them an ultimatum to create distance in the friendship. This is very common.
    I've yet to see someone "in love" choose a (platonic friendship) over their desire to be with that "special person". If they're forced to choose, they'll go with love and most (platonic friends) accept this.
    Rarely do you see "lifelong friendships" between those of the opposite sex. Serious relationships and marriage changes things.

      Yes, i agree with your words. There will be nothing wrong, in choosing a person as our friend, belonging to opposite gender. But, Some parents, will not accept this kind of relationship.

      I think it has more to do with one's parent's culture. I see you're in India. There are some countries that discourage boys and girls from spending too much time together for fear it will detract from their studies/lead to sex. The U.S. is lenient

      But, its not necessary for a boy and a girl, to have physical relationship, if they were good friends. Friendship has no gender bias. But, we are unable to manage our parents.
