    What do u think?

    I say no generally when a guy wants to be friends with a hot woman he just wants her body thats it he doesnt look at anything else. As long as her character is good aswell then it wont put the guy off

    I've seen people of opposite genders be friends without anything more developing plenty of times. It constantly confuses me how people can think it's not at all possible.

    Yes, as long as there is no attraction there. Most men know women they don't feel attracted to whatsoever.

    Can sexually frustrated men be really close friends with very attractive women? Probably not.

    And yes that works if they are not attracted to each other

    I want to say no, but my opinion is bias as I'm a lesbian. I find guys who are fine with my sexuality easier to get on with as there is no concern for sexual tension. On behalf of my female friends they all seem to cope being friends with guys without being overwhelmed by sexual desire so I say they can be friends - plus I can easily just be friends with girls which is my equivalent.

    Yup. From my experience. It's called the FriendZone.

    Maybe this is why I'm able to make male friends, I'm never the hot girl. I'm 'cute' at most.

    Of course they can! :yep:

    You won't develop feelings of attraction for every member of the opposite sex that you come across; you'll simply see many as people who you can talk to and generally get along with, but nothing more.
