    Yes, yes and yes.
    But to be fair most of mine had gay-ish tendencies and were quite effeminate (even though they're apparently straight).
    And there can be some tension there occasionally, but yeah, totally. I had male best friends for years.

    my best friend is a guy and we dont find each other attractive, probably because we have been friends since we were five

    I have a friend, we were best friends for ages and i suspected there might be something at his end, but definitely not mine. Anyhow, he decided to tell me on msn that he was 'crazy about me'. I didnt handle it maturely, basically ignored that it ever happened, luckily he decided to play along. And it all got back to normal.
    About a year ago he got a bit touchy feely with me, pretending it was all playful. Eventually he found a group of girls who were willing to flirt with him and lead him on just for their own amusement, which he seemed fine with.
    I left him to it.
    Basically we stopped talking for about a year, neither of us knowing how to approach the other.
    Then eventually i sucked it up, and spoke to him.
    Its getting back to how it should be.

    I think boys and girls can be friends as long as there is no attraction on either side.
    The only reason this friendship has lasted so long is that i refuse to lose him as a friend, there is no-one who makes me laugh more in the world - but theres just no attraction there.
    I dont know whether thats selfish of me, but i've never gave the suggestion that i wanted anything more than friendship. Sometimes i thought it would be a whole lot easier if i just went out with him. But thats not what i want.

    I dont know, its complicated, but completely worth it.
