Can Guys be ONLY FRIENDS with GIRLS?

well can you?!


just curious. i have many male friends who i consider to be "like brother's" and have no interest in having a relationship beyond a simple friendship with them.

so now i am curious, is it possible for guys to have female friends and have NO interest in dating them!?

I have male friends who have absolutely NO interest in dating me, and are nothing more than friends, so I'd say yes

I have several close friends who are men and have no interest in dating me.

Oh, wait...I think all of my close male friends are gay...

*pauses to think*

Yeah...they are.

Hmmm. Well, I'll be.

If my opinion counts at all though...I do believe it's possible.

gay guy friends would never have interest in a female friend.

i want to know if a straight male can have just friendly interest in a female friend and not have a "what if" factor going on.

come on guys, ANSWER!

Thanks for clearing that up, Captain Obvious.

Okay...seriously...I've had lots of good friendships with guys who wanted nothing more than to be friends. That's not always the case though.

I don't think you can really just make a generalized statement like that because everybody is different. There is no yes or no answer.

I was really close friends with a guy about a year ago...we had a class together, and we used to hang out. He wanted to date me though, and it got to the point where I wasn't ALLOWED to talk about John in front of him. One day, he said that I either had to dump John to go out with him or we couldn't hang out anymore.

Obviously, we stopped hanging out...which was a damn shame.

it is good to hear female perspectives. but i want to know what males have to say on this. it is always interesting and besides causes a great debate. i have had several male friends who i consider to be just friends try to make our friendship more than what it is. this is after i have been straight up and honest with them.

sure, but the "what if" question probably played around in his head at some point

i'm sure that question pops up in one's head at some point or other, from the male or female's perspective, even if it's never spoken about in the relationship but that doesn't mean that you can't be just friends.
