Let's say you disagree with me on this. Then ask yourself this: why on EARTH would you want to be friends with the opposite sex? If you want a female sex friend, get married. You won't understand each other, but that's the passion. If you are friends with too much women, then you end up understanding them. You can't tie yourself down with one person if you have too many other potential companions to choose from because you open your mouth to every opposite sex you see. I believe men interacting with females outside of pursuing a relationship ruins the romance with another spouse, and this is why the divorce rate is so high in this country. You meet your girl, you get past the mooning phase, and you go "oh, well she's not like the past 50 females I've had. She walks funny compared to my other female friends.....etc."
Lol also many people tend to misconstrued friendship with acquaintances. Just because two people talk to each other in class, and occasionally an entire group of people (which happens to include the two persons) go out to lunch, doesn't make the two friends.
This is a good debate. I wish my ex was here to debate this. He had tons of female friends and he thinks its possible for men and women to become good friends. I am NOT sure.
But like I said before. I think it is possible if they are NOT attracted to each other. If a guy I am NOT attracted to is very nice and cool I would be friends with him.
I don't mind my boyfriend being friends with other women (as long as the woman isn't super hot) I know nothing will happen and I don't care. If the woman is super hot then something WILL happen, so therefore I would prefer they don't hangout alone...but most women aren't super hot, so I really have nothing to worry about. haha...
But yeah, guys and girls can be friends if they are not attracted to each other.
I'll give you an example, I have a male friend that is really cool and he is my good friend. He looks just like Usher and has his body type and everything. Tons of women find him super attractive. I do NOT though...(I prefer dating within my own race) so therefore I would never date him. But he is my friend. We went on trips together, we talk on the phone all the time, we hangout and everything. He really is just my friend and I would never date him.
It can happen.
