and i bet you've wanted to try it on with each and every one of them at some point. Go on, admit it.
As four of them are gay and the rest are bi, no I havn't. I'll ammit that most of them are very attractive, but I just think of them as my mates.

Lesbians? Bisexuals? That's even better. :P: And they're attractive. You must be gay.

Without a doubt! I would have had at least 50 boyfriends if this was true...
Yep same here. I have plenty of male friends who I am not attracted to in the slighest. They are just friends and that's it.

if you're friends with them, you ARE attracted to them on some level. Think about it. You wouldn't be friends with them if you weren't attracted to some facet of their personality ---> you don't neccessarily have to be physically attracted to someone to be attracted to them.

I am sure she meant not attracted to them on that level.

One of the lesbians has been my best mate for nearly 6 years now, so I don't think of her in that way. She is like my little sister. And as I witness girls getting off every friday night, I've gone off lesbians and bi women.

Trust me, I just think of them as my mates.

Not as far as I'm concerned; but then, I've never had a choice in the matter.

Thank you profesh for illustrating my point perfectly. Listen up boys and girls, ----> see, i think you'll find this is generally the attitude of at least one party in the friendship. Just because YOU have never wanted things to go further does not mean that the other person in question doesn't. Therefore the relationship is not completely platonic.

case closed.

the question was "can a guy and a girl ever be just friends?" even if one of them has other feelings, it does not mean that they cannot be just friends. i fail to see your reasoning grace on why they can't be

Case opened. Of course it is totally platonic! I have male friends, who are engaged to be married to beautiful girls. I am also engaged to be married to a gorgeous man, therefore neither myself or my male friend find each other attractive sexually only as friends who we can all go out together with at weekends and have a bit chat and a laugh. Both myself and the males who I am friends with are perfectly happy and in love with our own partners and so therefore don't find each other attractive. It is totally possible to have a platonic relationship with the opposite sex, especially if the other person is a totally ugly lol. You won't be sexually attracted to them then!

I get on well with everyone; although historically, my male-female relationships have been more productive. Then again, that may simply be because I instil more effort into the latter :rolleyes:

Lynseyweth makes a perfectly valid point, however: it certainly is possible for some people to maintain friendships with those regarding whom there exists no underlying sexual attraction or ulterior motive, to speak of.
