I wouldn't have a problem with it whatsoever. My ex had many platonic girlfriends and I had no problem with that, I knew I had nothing to worry about. I'm not a tyrant, I do understand that beyond my capacity at this time, girls and guys can be friends *just hasn't happened to me*.

The ex situation, I will always stick to my way of handling it, not because I'm stubborn but because I don't like feeling torn. His ex was the one that kept hanging around and while they were friends she kept trying to talk him out of the relationship with me... now, who here is going to say "sure!! go hang out with your ex girlfriend/boyfriend who is telling you I'm not worth it!! have fun!! let him/her seduce too!"? No one. It's either or when it comes to that foolishness.

if this were to ever come true, i will be the first one to report this to you all.

good lord franks and beans!

i am going to see how many times he throws up the cock block whenever i talk to his buddies or any guys i meet. and you guys should all know what i mean by Cock Blocking.

I've been (well, sorta still am) in a very similar situation, Nate.

WTF - you do not give guys enough credit......I think I am a prime example. This pisses me off.

I am always SOOOOO afraid of women who take this attitude Tripthruyourwires takes......"They only want me for my body" crap. Get over yourself.

I have plenty of female friends that I have a lot in common with, yet do not want ANYTHING physically with them. And if my "trips to visit Interferencers" is not an indication of this, I don't know what is.

I have mostly female friends - some of them VERY attractive physically - but, there is no interest in a physical relationship. I watch them get involved in relationships - and laugh, as I try to console them and give them a guys perspective. I have also had FOUR female roomies - again, nothing beyond friendship.

So, yes, "opposites" can be friends - and even share a close and confined space with no problems.

Big Grin equal gender respect activist :p

But it hasn't happened with all of your male friends, no?

So, you do know it is possible to have a plutonic relationship with a guy, right?

We are friends. I am not gay. I have not put any moves on you and do not plan too. So. therefore, logically speaking...it is possible.

I just hate seeing that "all non-gay guys are after female bodies and nothing else" all of the time. It is like saying that women are only after a wedding ring.

you are not a close friend like the ones i am referring to. and i would say a good percentage of my close male friends have at one time attempted a move on me. and i do appreciate you not wanting to put the moves on me.

Clarification: close friends.

Well, anyway - it is possible. I am a living example. Maybe it is just the type of people you guys hang out with.

Down boy! Someone's got something stuck up his ass and doesn't know how to discern sarcasm from seriousness. As MissVelvet pointed out, we we're speaking purely from personal experience...and if i'm not mistaken, we CLEARLY POINTED THAT OUT IN THE FIRST PLACE! As you can see reading through all the posts, everyone has a different perception of the matter based on what they themselves have experienced. You yourself are basing your opinion on your own experience. My second post in response to MissVelvet's was obviously exaggerated and to be taken with a grain of salt. Oh wait, i suppose stiff fucks like yourself need a to help you get that. So with all due offence zonelistener: fuck you! you have no right to tell me to get over myself....you don't know me, you don't have the slightest idea what type of individual i am based on what i post on a message board, so don't assert that you do!

so with that said: zonelistener

what is that suppose to mean? i love my male friends very much. just because some at one point have tried a move on me doesn't mean they are pricks. yes i get annoyed and mad at them for doing that, but hell i get annoyed and mad at my close girlfriends for being possessive of my friendship. i suppose it is called human nature and how one reacts to spending time with one another. all of my friends both male and female have been there for me in some very difficult times in my life and i know i can depend on them for anything and vice versa. also knowing so much about them is like having another sibiling and i welcome that with open arms. i am not going to toss them out of my life for wanting something more from me but i am not going to lead them on to think that one day i will.

I don't know, the guys i hang out with typically divide their time between hanging out at nudie bars and viewing hardcore pornography on the net; if it helps, my best guy friend's favorite shirt reads: The Sex Psychic Said You're Gonna Do Me.

Hmmm. What do you think Zonelistener?

Oh wait, just for clarification:
