I'm a woman. Most of my close friends are men. And I really find no difficulty to get on well with them.
A pure friendship between a man and a woman is quite common, i think there are no problem if we identify and do our best to maintain it.

yes, I truly think that a real friendship might exist between a man and a woman. Why not?
sometimes it's easier to trust a person of the opposite sex and you can find a different approach to deal with subjects.
In my opinion true friendship doesn't distinguish sexes but feelings.

I dont think so if there can be good friendship between a man and a woman. As if you leave them alone in a room the only point you will be attracted to is that (...). So that friendship doesnt mean alot, if it is only for a purpose.

Yes, I think it can exist and when it happens is better than between people of the same sex.

that's a hard one, i have really good male friends that i must admit i considered dating more than once. when you find someone who clicks with you so well to be a close friend of the opposite sex its hard not to be attracted. i guess it all depends on how far one will take the attraction and weigh what is more important.

maybe such a platonic relationship does exist but just based on my own experience, its a feat.

Tell us your opinion. Thanks.


I wish I am a man then I could answer this, but I can share my opinion.

Nothing is impossible in this world. I guess the conflict between men and women started from the old teachings of our forefathers. The battle between a man and a woman is very obvious even at present... other people forgot to consider that people who belong to the same gender has it's own battle too and possibly be using the opposite sex as a front to win their own fight. If this is not corrected I guess pure friendship is impossible... but time is changing men and women alike is becoming more literate now. They are learning how to judge by their own and freeing themselves from the cell of the old tips or counsel... I guess, it's not impossible... there are lucky ones whom I believe found themselves in this kind of friendship.
Good luck!

I think it is a feat to have a friendship with a person of the opposite sex. I haven't experienced it...it is too hard. A friend is not a colleage that's why this is a short way to love.

Naturally men and woman feel attraction each other, but pure friendship are rare. Mostly we are attract each other for our physical requirement.

maybe. Honestly speaking, even if my friend is a female I cannot understand why for some reasons they believe on what they hear and follow their wrong feelings so I guess friendship with the opposite sex is just the same.

Oh, yes! Why not? I do believe in a friendship between a man and a woman, but if they get to close and like each other, there will be something else ( that's normal and human). But honestly, there is friendship between them.

Isn't it possible to pure friendship get along with pure love? Imagine the dialogue between two kids: "You're cute! If I were big I would marry you. What is your name? May I play in your sandbox?" - "Thank you. If I were big I'd say that I need to think about it. Elisabeth. It's not my sandbox, it's for everybody, but I don't mind you to play here too!"

I think you can have pure friendship towards another sex. It's great because you can talk to him/her about anything and get advice from another gender's point of view. It would be hard not to fall for the other though, as in most cases of boy and girl as best friends, one is almost always bound to fall for the other. But if it's just pure friendship, I think it's possible. It would be hard but not impossible.

It is very hard question but I think yes. There is pure friendship between men and women.
In most cases it is very hard to do because one of them usually fall in love. Close contact between men and women often ends with some kinds of love. But I know that is possible to have very good friend as a men or women and it is only friendship.
