    Re: Can guys and girls really just be FRIENDS?

    I think it is possible for a guy and a girl to be just friends. Though, for some people at school that is the most impossible thing in the world. I’ve had guy friends before and many have never gone farther then friendship. I know I have talked to guys just to have someone to talk to and we have become friends. It’s not like there was some ulterior motive, I just wanted to talk.

    Sometimes if you are friends with a guy it seems like something more. I know I have made the mistake before. I think this is the reason. I have a friend whose a girl that I hang out with a lot. We’re best friends and we do stuff together all the time like hang out at each other’s houses and go to the movies. Now if I did that with a guy then it would look just like I was going out with him so it isn’t surprising that the belief that guys and girls can’t be friends because of this dilemma.

    So to me, it’s easy to be friends with guys at school, work, or any group gathering. It’s just harder if you do things one on one because it seems like you are going out with them and that can interfere with your real romantic relationships. Not to mention to you have to deal with all the teasing from your friends and family.

    Because of this I usually hang out with my guy friends in groups. If I’m going with a guy to a movie with only him then I’m dating him for sure.

    Re: Can guys and girls really just be FRIENDS?

    i think they can becuase i know a lot of guys
    who are in the friend zone not that theres anything
    wrong with that im just saying... bbut yeah it is possable but
    the girl has to be likeone of the guys and what i mean by this
    is to just hang out doing what ever and not flirt or what ever it is
    girls do.

    though thats just how i have been seieng it with most of the friend i have
    that are girls there just them selves and dont try to be somone there not

    Re: Can guys and girls really just be FRIENDS?

    Well if we see this "phenomena" in general yes~! Girls and guys can be just friends... we have seen lots of other grouping of mixed gender befriends each other... so yes... generally they can ^^

    But... if certain issues are added and we look closer to individuals... certain and some individuals... well things can be very different... it varies with each person...

    Like for example...crushes... i know most guys had crushes on friends or the other way around... and it is friendship that leads or starts a higher level of relationship like best friends, or good friends... or maybe even higher... and this reminds me of the comedy show F.R.I.E.N.D.S ... they can be friends... and they can't be friends sometimes... it depends on the situation in this case...

    Like me myself... i been a good friend to this certain girl i know... and now look at us.. yea.. things can develope... thats my point here ^^

    Btw legend... a very good topic u got here... well done

    Thank you thank you lol, I aim to please. Two reasons why I created this thread. One, I thought you folks might like to talk about these type of topics and the 50+ replies don't lie. Two, I have been in situations like these years back so it's fun to discuss about it right?

    To be honest I am very surprise that the general consensus is yes. I was expecting more people to say no. I guess I should have asked instead can girls and guys just be CLOSE friends. Because casual friends, I would say the answer is yes too, but when a guy and girl become close friends the line blurs a bit for both parties and those around them.

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    Well it depends..if the two fall in love with eachother a friendship would hurt them both,even if just one has strong feelings for the other then they'll be hurt.I tried to be friends with a guy I was in love with but it didn't work because I was jealouse when I heared he had someone,even though I knew he could never love me.It can happen but only when the two of them don't have feelings for the other.I know some people that are friends even if they were together when they were young,so it can happen but noone can garantee it will work(my opinion ).

    Well it's hard to make a friendship with a person you already like in that way. because when you become friends with him/her you get jelous or sad when he goes liking someone else. Because all he thinks of you is a "friend" nothing more, and he thinks you think of him/her as a "friend" also. so it's tough if your in that kind of situation. The boys being friends with Girls only works if both sides think of eachother as friends and it's even. Trust i've been in that situation. but then again i have a ton of guy friends i consider friends.

    Re: Can guys and girls really just be FRIENDS?

    No. One of the parties will always be interested in the other. I've had male friends, and one of us has always been interested in the other after a time. I think that it works just to be acquaintances, but if you are spending time with someone of the opposite sex, there will always be an attachement that is created. I'm speaking of only my experience though. And I don't have any friends that have only been able to keep it at a just a friendship level.

    There are people out there I'm sure that can do it, but I don't think there are many that can.

    And families generally don't make it easy. Because they know how girls and boys are. =)

    This thread has two questions, so read through. The optimist says, "Yes, a man and a woman can just be friends/best friends." And the cynic says, "No, he/she is only kind to you because he/she has a motive."

    So what do you think?? Can a male and female just be friends/close friends/best friends without ever going being that??

    and:

    If they can, does our society/societies and our surroundings (family, friends) allow it??

    Here is what I am talking about: Even if a guy and girl are best of friends, can their friendship survive the jealousy and mistrust of their respective companions? Can a guy and a girl just enjoy each other as friends w/o friends and families constantly suggesting that there is something going on to confuse them?
    I belive tht it depends on the two people who are friends, they must have trust in each other and all signs of jelousy can not exist in a friendship. If you are truly friends you would not care what sex, or anything, they are.
