Re: Can single men & women be friends?
No. Most women are going to say yes, but the answer is no.
As a matter of fact. My wife and I started as "just friends". By "just friends" that means she thought I had no interest in her but I did.
Seems kind of sleezy I suppose but if I was honest with her then we wouldn't be married today. She was in a man hating phase after a couple of rough break ups.
We hung out for about six months or so, never doing anything other then just hanging out and eventually she told me she was starting to get feelings for me, at which point I told her good because I've had them for her for months but knew if I told her that when we first meet she wouldn't have given me the time of day because of her mood at the time.
From a guys point of view, there just isn't much if any reason to be friends with a woman. We very rarely have the same interests. Maybe one, but that's probably about it.
Very well said! I find the longer you are friends with a woman the more the lines get blurred and something likely to happen. I can say without regret that I have hooked up with 90% of my female friends (those I consider friends and are friends till this day). Some are married with families and some are not but it was something that just happen.
Friendships between opposite sexes have a different kind of "bond" that over time leads you places you didn't plan (or at least one of you didn't plan).
It's the same way when a woman has mostly guys friends and gives the usual BS excuse "most of my guys are friends, I can't stand women"......chances are she's boned a good number of them as well.
The stench of truth....
