...all of them.
They certainly don't start out as being enemies.
Most men (with no integrity) could start an affair based on sex with a woman that they are attracted to. Men's primary sense is their sight. They are attracted to what they see. Women are different...for the most part. They are attracted to the physical but they also seem to crave the emotional connection and sex is just a by product of the emotional connection.
I do believe that men and women that are "just friends" are fooling themselves thinking that they will remain "just friends" if there is even a hint of physical attraction between them. The key is the physical attraction. Without it...there is no physical affair. However, there can still be an emotional affair. Women can and do fall in love with someone that they have never seen. Example...internet chat rooms.
If there is an initial attraction, friends of the opposite sex became even more physically attractive to each other then they were initially if the friendship and emotionally chemistry is strong. Once that happens...look out! Throw in poor boundaries, some FOO issues, marital issues, or even boredom and some innocent people are going to get hurt.
