    Guys I have this Guy who has been my best friend since I 6. He is like everything to me,but I have a quick question. The guy has been acting a bit strange. As in he always invading my space, complimenting me and Just being too nice.

    Does this mean the guy likes me or not ????????:confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

    do you like your best friend like that or is he just a friend. you should just tell him his friend asked you out its not a crime for others to ask you out

    OP, do you like him more than a friend? It sounds like he does like you.

    there's no such thing as "best boy friend" - there's simply guys who want to bang you and nothing more. guys cannot see girls as only friends. even if they're ugly we'll pretty much want to bang them too.

    I'm having a serious problem based on the usual replies on this site. Is this satire or do you genuinely believe what you've said?

    "Like", in what way?
    • Like as in friend - obviously.
    • Like as in potential partner - potentially, but it's hard to tell.

    I'm dead serious
    heterosexual inter-gender "friendship" is attraction
    without that element of heterosexuality, it's just "friendship"
    if not, what even is "attraction"? a fancy name for friendship?
    I'm not going to find my best male friend "attractive" just because we get along really well, for instance
    but if I get along really well with a girl, I'm not going to consider that "friendship" - I'm going to describe that as the innate biological process that happens when a male and female enjoy each other's company
    girls might be a whole lot better at suppressing their natural urges, but men aren't - we are horny as **** by our very nature. we are designed to be.

    Oh, so you think I genuinely do have sexual feelings for about half of my friends that I've repressed so hard I've forgot I even have them?

    okayyyy

    or is that what you're saying? help

    yes - that's spot-on what I am saying
    obviously the circumstances between you and these girls is not appropriate - that's very likely the only thing stopping you from pursuing them in another way. if you fail with one of them, for instance, that might make things between you and not only the individual girl awkward but possibly between you and the whole group of friends.

    also, there's obviously the fear of rejection. but a fear of rejection doesn't then mean that you're just viewing them as "only friends" until the act of sexual initiation is made.

    you can tell yourself "yeah, this pretty girl who I talk to a lot is just a friend", and to be fair, that's not that strange - it's just the fact that you know in your mind that all you and her can be is friends right now and you've internalised that. as soon as this girl starts showing any kind of interest in you would cause a sudden reversal, obviously. if these girls started showing sexual interest in you, you'd have to be a very sexually-stunted individual to not comply.

    Wait so people on this are saying a girl and a guy can't be bestfriends or even friends? Why can't they?? I have really close friends who are male and I don't see a problem with it?

    I don't think a guy and girl can truly be best friends without someone developing feelings. Unless both were already in a relationship, anyway.
