Not a new line of thought: "men and women can't ever be just friends."

Do you agree with this? Do you have a close friend of the opposite sex who you've NEVER considered having a sexual relationship with? Is said friend ugly/fat, or do you see them as a brother/sister?

Is it easier for girls to have platonic friends than guys?

My best friend for over 10 years was male and we never had any sort of sexual attraction. (Times changed, we never fell out we just ended up drifting apart)

There are tons and tons of men I'm friends with but do not consider attractive in any way shape or form. Others I have always secretly fancied.

i dont necesarily consider them attracive, but that doesnt stop me considering the idea. and considering the idea doesnt really affect any of my friendships either.

It's possible for there no to be attraction, but a lot of the time something develops (or was there to start off with)

One of my best friends is male...we started out as dating, but now I know for sure there are no feelings on either side.

I think it's perfectly easy for men and women to just be friends. I've had male friends (and still do) that I have never and will never see like that.
