    Let me give you a scenario. You're single. Your friend is single. You find your friend really physically attractive and they have a great personality. But you have no interest in having a romantic/sexual relationship with them and are happy being just friends.
    Is it possible to just be friends with people you're really attracted to? (Providing you both are single)

    Provided or not provided you're single the answer is still yes imo. You don't have to act on your feelings and can perfectly maintain a healthy friendship with someone even if they're very attractive.

    I would say yes. I have a few friends that I find really attractive but I wouldn't want to be in a relationship with them. Whether its because I don't want to ruin the friendship or I don't see myself in a relationship with them, i'm not sure. When you say attracted, do you just mean physically?

    I have a good friend of many years who, basically, "ticks all the boxes" physically and personality-wise. I find him objectively attractive, but I'm not attracted to him or have feelings for him. So yes, it is definitely possible. I suppose the most important point is the difference between considering somebody attractive and being attracted to them.

    If you both feel the same way then yes, or you might end up as friends with benefits

    Do you sometimes think that he has feelings for you?

    I honestly do not believe a guy can stay just friends with an attractive girl or vice versa. This is just how things are, eventually, one of them will catch feelings for each other.

    I really doubt it, but then you assume too much I'm an "attractive girl". :P

    It's extremely hard to not act on your feelings and still be happy being platonic friends. Especially if you're both single, it's almost impossible.
