    I have always had a lot of friends who are men that I consider "just friends". I was just reading the following:

    “Between men and women there is no friendship possible. There is passion, enmity, worship, love, but no friendship.”

    It’s an old quote that’s revisited by Billy Crystal in When Harry Met Sally -- there’s no such thing as a platonic relationship between a man and a woman. The man is usually consumed with the idea of sleeping with her. It’s a belief widely acknowledged by men, but rarely accepted by women. Remember that. Movie and dinner nights might mean one thing to you, but she certainly doesn’t view it as a precursor to intercourse.

    What do you all think? In your opinion, is it possible to be just friends?

    Mostly no. I think one or the other will always have the impression that it is more than it is. Jealousy and hurt feelings begin to fester and the friendship fades or occasionally explodes. So for a time, yeah, but probably not lasting.

    Do you really believe they see you as "just a friend"? Nothing is more maddening than being permanently placed in the "friend zone". Women are evil.

    Lol. If a man is married and is my friend, that's the only zone he CAN be in. Why does that make us evil?

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Yeah men and women can be friends, but that don't mean that we don't want to bang them too. Me personally im a horndog can never get enough, and lets be honest if your married men don't never get it enough like they would like too. Sorry don't mean to sound like a jerk on that last statement but just true, us men are like dogs, eating and getting our rocks off are our 2 favorite things to do. Ill man up on this one and be truthful about it lmfao.
