Can a man and a woman be strictly friends? Or is there always a bit of an interest of a "different nature" (at least) in one of them?

Okay dear Claudia, where are you?  We have had no input from you for a long time now and you always inject a lot of youth and fun into the blogs!!!

I have also read your bio and you need to move it up a notch lady.  You say you aren't pretty but you are beautiful.  I think we all think down upon ourselves from time to time, and no we do not all have the coveted hourglass figure, but you are fun and cute so keep contributing, we enjoy your input.

I think it's possible, at least I know it's possible for me to be friends without a sexual interest.

Every situation is different. There are some people who (having dated or not) wind up in the friend zone so deep that the idea of more makes them feel like it would ruin things. Some even think of friends as family so they find it wierd to consider more.

I'm of the mind that if there's no physical attraction, then yes. If there is that attraction.....then it's just a matter of time before it's go time.......;)

LostinFI Knowing human nature I still reckon that idea is like playing with fire and her husband must be a very trusting bloke. I think that poetryguy is right and the answer is in the movies.One of the best ones which prove the point is Blame it on Rio except unlike in that film in reality most blokes would have taken off with that young girl in the story line given the chance by her.I know I would have done lol. However that storyline also contained the two issues of,as usual as happens so often in real life,of it being yet another married/seperated/divorced bloke,who got lucky in pulling a young single girl,and the story writers then trying to alter reality by making up a totally unrealistic storyline of that bloke voluntarily giving her up to a bloke of her own age just to suit the pc lot. The catch 22 for me being that I've actually seen that situation from the point of view of being the single bloke of her own age but unlike in the movies in reality lost out and did'nt get the girl and then saw her actually decide to marry that older married/seperated/bloke.But now in middle age,if ever I was lucky enough to be in that position,of pulling a much younger girl,the fact that I'm still single,not married/seperated/divorced,would'nt matter a damn to the typical possessive father and the pc lot in acting just like that one in the film when he found out that his daughter was interested in an older bloke.

Jag, For me it is not dating. It is just like I was hangout with amy of my Guy friends. We are truly just friends. She actually tries to hook me up while we are out. I have no romantic or intimate interests in her. He husband know andhe is fine with it. He has called and talked to her while we were hanging out.  

So yes, I truly beleive that a man and a woman cann be just friends.

LostinFI The question is would her husband see it that way if he knew ? considering that plenty of platonic relationships which start off like that inevitably change over time.If it was me I'd give up those dates with a married woman that can't,or at least hopefully should'nt,lead anywhere,as it would just hurt more than having no one at all and I'd advise her to leave the states to live with her husband if the US government won't allow him in.

I know it is possible, I have a very good looking female friend that is 22 years my junior. I have been out with her to what most people would consider a date. We had loads of fun and she was wven picking out girls for me and trying to hook me up with them. We have been friends for over a year and talk on a regular basis. She is actually married but her husband is a forign citizen and can't enter the USA leagally yet. They have been together once in 5 years. I am her shoulder to cry on, help her with advice and go out with her and just have fun.

Claudia,

See WHEN HARRY MET SALLY for the answer to your question. And, remember, as Steve Martin's character says in GRAND CANYON, the answers to ALL life's problems can be found in the movies (lol).

Yes and no... Friends can be lovers but sadly for some lovers can't be friends especially when one carries the torch... Sigh!!!

I think the total truth of it is that it IS possible, but it depends on the nature of your relationship. For example, there may be a sexual attraction for one of you, which may even come up in conversation, but which either the one or both of you choose to not act upon. Then their's the example presented in one of the Seinfeld episodes, where they feel they must have sex to save the friendship. (Incidently, that's never worked for me.) Now here's something else for you to consider. Do you realize that, with the growing interest in female-to-female relationships, it's entirely likely that one of your female friends has sexual desires for you. Is that a problem? And if it is (or isn't) a problem there, why should it (or shoudn't it) be a problem with a guy? My opinion is that much of it depends on what you really want, and then clearly communicating that with all your (individual) relationships....friends, contacts, acquaintances, lovers....

yes Claudia, I think so as I have men friends for years, [they usually tell me all their troubles] So they don't have interest in me in a romantic way. and I don't in them, But try to help if I can. How are you my friend??.

Helena if he knows where there's more than one (teenaged hopefully)'brassy blonde' maybe he could ask them to put their profiles on here so we can all get a chance instead of just one bloke being greedy.The harem thing seems to be too common these days.lol.

Hello Claudia, I have a male friend 21 years younger than I and we do just hang out. He likes young brassy blondes and I like intelligent younger guys so there is no way any physical relationship could ever arise. We do however listen to one another, and laugh a lot together and generally enjoy chatting. While my friends are all in their 40's, his are mostly in my age group. We just have tremendous respect for one another and we will only ever be friends.

Claudia there's no such thing as a platonic relationship between a man and a woman (at least if she's young and good looking) just ask ex US president Bill Clinton.LOL.But unfortunately for me I'm not speaking from experience only what I've heard so no we have'nt 'all been there'.
