Hmm...I personally think yes. I have probably more guy friends than girl friends and there's never been any kind of tension between us. That said, it might just be that I'm so repulsive they wouldn't even look at me that way.

Yes. It depends on the guy; however, even if he is married or single.

As for what goes through their mind....... that's another story
Exactly. Same for me. I have many female friends, anyway, if they are attractive, yeah... you know what I mean. And some... yeah, you know. If shes not my type, no need for further discussion, we can be best "just" friends, if she challenges my mind.

One of the few exceptions was the singer who Ive been working with for many years. I would say shes very attractive but I never wanted to...

Anyway, theres also another situation. You can be just friends, but have wonderful... anyway, as long as both persons are very independent, get crazy for each other, but also walk their own way.

So guess it always depends on the situation.

Any of you who think that guys who are your friends have "no further interest"... be assured they have thought of it

Yes.

For me it goes all around. I've got my handful of gay friends, my friends that I'm not romantically interested in and they aren't with me, those that I did like at one point but remain friends with, and those that I am friends with who like me. Obviously you try to keep some distance from those where other feelings involved, but still, it's a friendship...

I would say, yes, but I also think that at SOME point, both parties, both male and female, would tend to THINK about it, at least once. Whether anything develops is another question, but it definetly crosses people's minds.

Part of this is due, I think, to the fact that you would spend so much TIME with the other person. I mean, being friends with someone, good friends, means that that person possesses traits and characterisitcs that you admire/covet/challenge, etc. These afre often characteristics though,t hat people look for in a mate. In long term relationships, the mate often becomes the 'best friend.' When someone is THAT close with you, I think it may be difficult not to thinka botu it once or twice, but often people need to consider the reprecussions of entering a relaionship from such a friendship...am I making sense?

...gah. Anyway, I'm with Trip on this one. I've often had male friends hit on me, even if I haven't made any sort of move toward them. It's a psychology thing, in the end, I guess, and I haven't studied that far ahead yet....

That's pretty much how I see it too. You can be nothing more than good friends but one or the other will almost ALWAYS at least consider "what if" at some point.
