hmmmm, don't I know that one? but seriously, I think men do like to have pretty girls as friends, it's like girls like having lots of shoes - it doesn't mean you'd ever have sex with a shoe, but you feel oddly attracted to them and respect them as beautiful things.
Yeah, I am in a wierd metaphore mood right now.
Maybe its because I've been to all girls school all my life

One of my best friends is a girl. Shes mad as a brush though however given that im as mad as a hatter we get along great im gay shes straight, and she could never get the subtle hints I dropped until I told her that i was gay and shattered her hopes of dating a dashingly handsome bloke
Yeah whatever. No following me around on threads, make your own friends! :P

Total and absloute crap. But then I'm a guy, and I would say that.
Yeah, precisely. Girls won't want to be friends with you if they know that, perhaps, in a distant alternative universe, you wouldn't mind having sex with them. I mean, imagine bringing that one up at the dinner party.

Do any guys in the 17-20 category agree with this? To be honest I never used to, but more recently have started to believe it might be so. I admit there are some unique relationships where a boy and girl are true friends but do most guys here admit to fancying most of their closest female friends?
One girl i REALLY fancied in year 10, i ended up asking her out and all that - well i wasn't her type etc etc so we never 'got together'. Over the years she's become one of my best mates - we haven't even argued with each other (touch wood). Granted we've annoyed each other - but that's mainly due to excessive alcohol the previous night and 9am lectures - if you're not grousy at that time with a hangover then i'm impressed.
So i admit to fancying her first - but i dont fancy her now. Or any of my girl-friends - that's all we are - just friends. I've been the only guy in a group of girls on nights out - leading to comments of me being gay - only because those dudes were jealous :P Anyways, i'd say i have more female friends than male friends and as far as i'm aware i don't fancy them - i feel affection yes but fancying them - no.
I'm only in it to hit it. That's the honest truth. I have one female friend who I would not sleep with given the chance...dunno why, pretty girl too, just sorta different vibe. A brother/sister relationship there.
Her aside, if I know you, and your not related to me, my ultimate interest is to run up in it.*

A few girls are just friends...but its no more then say 15%.
