I would say - 100% yes - men and women can have friendships without sexual overtones or romantic feelings. Most of my friends are guys - and most guys I know would rather have friends that are girls.

Being 24 is not young. I'm 24, and I think I do myself a disservice when I tell myself, "Oh well, I'm only 24." I think that aids in keeping a childish mentality in some ways, and doesn't fully encourage us to take on adult responsibilities.

My mom looks at me crazy when I say "well, I'm only 24." She says, "24 is an adult age. You should act like one, and learn to see yourself as part of the adult world with tremendous responsibilities."


I mean serious friendship not just friends.
.can do a lot of things for each other. the same sort of things people generally do but without sex part of it. you know what i mean , it should be different from just friends.

I mean the friendship you are talking about might be platonic because the just friends didnt get a chance to be non - platonic or contrained by society or any other means to be platonic..I am talking of cases where the friends had the option of being non-platonic (there was no problem at all) chose to remain platonic.

About my age, 24 is still young.. I have just completed my studies. And have passed all my time listening to U2. I am still under my parent watch..and so I feel young.
And I dont mind being like that.

If it wasn't possible AcrobatMan, all us married people would get very very lonely. No close trusted friend of the opposite sex except our spouse?
Make good friends first I think. The love stuff, in whatever form, follows.
Good luck 2 U.

Well, I'm a guy and two of my three best friends are female, and I love them immensely. There's nothing in this world I wouldn't do for them, except have a sexual relationship with them. And it ain't an issue, we simply don't have those sort of feelings for one another. Its not only possible, its one of the most beautiful things a human being can experience in life.

definately. i really believe when the day is done, in fact, that id feel best if all my relationships were like this. to be free of all sexual passion i think for me personally would solve so many problems.

i have two particular girlfriends who i love dearly, they are my fav girls in the universe, but i wouldnt even want to date them. i like things the way they are (and im more than sure they feel the same way).

Platonic Love

Hiya all ..its me again I think I have been thinking about one another thing. What do you all think of platonic love between a man and a woman. Is it possible ? Has someone ever here such a relationship ? I mean love without sexual feeling or sexual passion or sex. For your information I havent had any relationship so far ..I am only 24 But I personally think it would be good to have such a relationship ( more humane ) .But then where's such a girl Even with U2, I never take any song in context to any girl. I take most of them in context to God - with and without you, i still havent... Am I abnormal ? Not that I will say that I dont like Pamela Anderson but ..I like her for the same reasons as most of the guys here..but ..Platonics love ?? is there a thing like that ?

I went to a really tiny Baptist college in the middle of nowhere Kentucky. Boys were on one side of campus, and girls were on the other. We had a REALLY strict open dorms policy: girls could have guys over two nights of the week (and one weekend night a month) from 8pm to 11pm. They had to sign in and leave an ID at the front desk. Then you had to leave your door open and all the lights on, and they would come around and check on you to make sure you weren't doing anything. There were all these weird little rules too. I came out okay, though. Except for having the social skills of a head of lettuce.

Wow, meegannie! And I thought we had rough rules when I lived in the dorms! I would have gone crazy at your school because a lot of my good friends were guys.

So...did you ever hide a boy in your closet or under the bed or anything?????
