I think that being platonic friends between woman and man is possible and very frequent phenomenon in these days. Scientist give a proof that woman best friend is man for the reason that he is not jealous of her appearance and success in relationship and etc. The same applies to male subjects. This happen also because people would like to have someone who will take care of them and give a support whatever happend but without commitment like emotions declaration. The friendship between me and my best friend is also evidence that the platonic friends exists because we never fall in love each other.

I think that friendship between girl and boy is possible because friendship is based on sincerity, loyalty and confidence. {-; These special things sometimes we can find in person who isn't the same sex. People who find it can be really happy and feeling like love doesn't have to exist in their relationship. {-:

Personaly, I think that boys and girls can be platonic friends. It doesn't matter who your friend is, but why you like him or her so much.

I think boy and girl can be a friends. Usually we have some platonic friends from elementary school. Furthermore there are many platonic friends in groups of people, that have the same hobbys, for example "metal heads".

i think that platonic friendships between girl and boy is possible, but only in the case there is sexual and sentimental attraction between them.

I think that it is possible. If they have got trust to each other and be very carefully. They have to be careful because it might be no differences or they are so small between be a friends or be a couple.

I think so, but platonic friends cannot tresspass their limits. Usually they do not say anything about love...that's just a feeling.

Well, in my opinion guys, why are you labeling your friendship a 'platonic' one... Why can't you just consider each other simply as 'friends'?? Adding some title to it will definitely confuse your feeling...
