Every one has a platonic love or a platonic friend, it is easy to know it when you have a platonic love. you try to say something about your feelings but you can´t, you dream (awake)with that person doing this or that.You want to ask her for a date but it is hard to say it. that´s what I have felt with my platonic love.

Hi!

This is a question for all the forum....

Do you think people in general think that platonic friendship between the sexes is possible or not ?

What's your opinion about it ??

I think it´s possible because someone can have all the characteristics to be compatible with, but maybe the circunstances aren´t the ideal to make that work. Maybe it´s not the moment and after all is not the right person for you...What do you think about it? :geek:

well...most people say: a friendship between a man and a woman...implies that one of them always fall in love of the other one...what do you think? Unfortunately, I´ve lived some experiences related to that!!! :!!:

Yes, I think, platonic friends can have fun, but, hahaha, -is the human nature-, can be posible that this kind of friendship becomes other closer kind of friendship, so, we don't know when we can cross that uncertain line, of the "agape" kind to the "eros" kind.

I think between men and women always there is the sexual instinct. That instinct can be hide under words like "friendship", "fun", but I think that attraction can be as unconscious as not to realize it.
Anyway sexual attraction is a good thing. It's the natural in all beings.
I have had many "other sex" friends. They have been truly friends, but I always felt that sexual attraction. This represent I have attempted to get sexual relations with them? NO. but the sexual attraction is there.

I don't think so because men and women are falling in love.. this is destiny...
They are attraction each other. Somepeople say that is possible. yes i think so.

According to me platonic friendship between the sexes isn't possible. You can have best friend and tell him/her about everything, laugh and have fun with him/her, but after the certain time you or your friend will fall in love. You won't tell him this becouse you will be afraid that it might spoil your friendship.

In my opinion, girls and boys can be platonic friends. Sometimes it is easier to talk about something of the opposite sex. With some problems more likely to help the boy with the other girl. So I think that the friendship between a girl and a boy could be.

I believe that man and woman can be a platonic friends.
For example I know people who have known each other since childhood and they are good friends though it's boy and girl. :)

There is no one answer that question. Personally, I think that this friendship is possible.
It is important that the person was honest with each other, talking frankly and from the beginning they set their intentions. Despite this, it is inevitable that they may fall in love.

In my opinion men and woman can be platonic friends, but not long. Sooner or later one of friends will fell in love for second person. Generally, when this situation happens, friendship between men and woman will end. Sometimes both of people feel sth. for themselves and next they are couple. Then, friendship is really good fundament for successful relationship.
In conclusion, I don't believe that man and woman can be a platonic friends.

In my mind friendship between other sexes can exist, but it is hard to create it. Often this relation leads to love but happens situations when this friendship is real and long-lasting. It is wonderful but rarely seen. Personally, I believe it is possible, when both sides are involved.

In my opinion feelings will develop and u will want more. Your feelings for them will eventually come out. No way people can be just friends. Males and females should never be friends most of all they are not single ;)

In my opinion platonic friends don't exsist. Obviously friendships beetwen women and man are in
ordinary world but for short time, because always one side falls in love and then they
become a couple or they hate eatch other and they never talk again.

In my opinion boys and girls can be platonic friends. I think that, because to be friends we don’t have to be of the same sex. Sometimes we better get along with somebody with the opposite sex. A lot of people says, that sooner or later one of the site will fall in love, but it’s not true. If we have topics to talk about and we like the same things ( but we don’t have to, because sometimes it’s better when friends are different, because they will have always to talk about something ) they can meet each other, but it doesn’t have to mean something serious.

I can't unequivocal answer because for some people spending time with friend can be just spending time with friend with whom you can talk honestly, who knows you by heart etc. but for sombody it can be reason for fall in love. Furthermore I know a lot of relationships which had been asked "Are you together?" and answer was like "No, no, no we just friends" and over time they were together ;)

I think that platonic friendship between man and women exists. I have a true friend and we have never felt in love. Platonic friendship is something important, because men and women have a different point of view

I think that girls and boys can't be platonic friends because we live in a time in which friendship between men and women often is impossible. Although  they try to be just a friends ultimately they fall in love to each other. What is more in my point of view in this kind of friendship often one of them is jealous of his/her friend when he/she finally finds a boyfriend or girlfriend what leads to the meltdown of the whole friendship.
