Theres always attraction between the two but only when there is mutual respect can there be friendship

Yes. It comes down solidifying the understanding, "you are my friend. Nothing more, nothing less"
When the boundaries are forgotten, then the problems crop up.

Only if they are gay. I have found over the years that men that say they want to be 'just friends' usually have the same hidden agenda.

As a teenager I had more male friends then female friends, now that I am well beyond those years this has reversed. The last male friend that I considered to be a "good" friend, I married and I can assure you it did not turn out well. I learned after we married that he had intent to be with me from the very beginning and for two years he played it very well. Although I am doubtful that a man can simply be friends with a woman I would like to try as I do enjoy being with the opposite sex just on a more intellectual level. It is always interesting to see, hear and learn the views of a man-some times funny sometimes challenging and somtimes totally the opposite of how I would have thought (which is what makes it so fun).

On the other side of the coin, it could be the female that fall for the male friend!

I would have to say speaking as a woman.... male "Friends" exist. A lot of women tend to "friend zone" guys and throughout life, he would be nothing more than a friend. I have a lot of male friends in which we hangout, talk, party and just have fun. We do not have sex, so I believe its possible to have guy friends and not make them bofriends. You can Never have to many friends. The hard part of having guy friends is that they might actually start having feelings for you and that is when it becomes complicated.

I like to believe that it is possible....however over time the dynamics can change...so it all really depends.

I have several male friends - but I am very careful to keep certain boundaries in place.

I think opposite sex friendships are on a different level and are a bit more guarded.  I think the barriers are kept in place precisely to avoid the "benefits".

To my mind there is no friendship between man and woman. In the case they are both straight, either one wants and waits for the right moment to take friendship to another level.

I think you're right. Although I do have respectful male friends, unless they are gay, they would be biologically wired to sleep with a woman:)

I think that it depends. The majority of my friends are male. It's a personal preference of mine though. I live in Small Town USA where everybody knows everybody's business. In other words - lots of gossip. I'm not one to engage in "He said/She said". Out here, most of the women that I've come into contact with do nothing but gossip. I'm not stereotyping and saying all women are like this - just most out here in the boonies. Guys are, for the most part, laid back and drama-free. They are so much easier to talk to and hang out with.

I will tell you that it depends on the people involved. I think that it is possible to have male friends that do not want to sleep with a woman. My best friend is a guy, he's totally straight at least that's what all of his women say. Yes he can be a total man whore, but he will never sleep with me. We actually had this conversation a long time ago that he said he would never sleep with me not because I wasn't attractive, but because I was his best friend.

It obviously will be contingent on how attracted the man is to the woman as to how he will respond to her.. PERIOD...

I would say it safe to deduce.. the more attractive the woman, the more difficulty she may have in finding true men friends.. as men tend to "try" and be a woman's friend they are smitten with... BUT RARELY HAVE I SEEN THIS WORK! He eventually becomes resentful and jealous when he can't "charm" her into having chemistry with him. And God help her if she starts to like one of his friends!! I've witnessed grown men with friendships of 30+ years turn on one another over....... a woman they both liked..

I do feel it is important to establish friendships of the opposite sex, but... I also am a realist. If a woman has many male friends, she may wish to ask herself one of two questions...

Is this guy only befriending me because he is in hopes eventually he will get to sleep with me? Or.. Is he truly sincere?

When a man

My best friend is a male. He knows more about me than my family. He lived with me for 30 days, I couldn't take anymore after that, so he had to go. But I am sure that he doesn't want a relationship with me nor I with him. I am 99% sure he is straght. Men and women can be best friends with no romantic interest.

I have been friends with dozens of women and have no interest whatsoever in having sex with them.. So, no, it's not 100%.  I will say that a single man and a single women cannot be friends for a long, long time because one of the two will start to have romantic feelings for the other......
