  • I wanted to added ... I have had several male friends that neither one of us had any "romantic" or "sexual" feelings towards each other and no, they were not "gay".

    One of my best friends growing up was male. It was him that I called when my hubby asked me to marry, not a girlfriend. We talked about dating and decided we didn't want to ruin our friendship and this was middle school (jr high).

    I considered two of my hubby's former BFFs a good friend of mine. One was just like a brother to me. It broke my heart when he stopped contacting hubby.

    I think it's really sad that there are still these idiotic ideas (men and women can't be friends) floating around in today's society. SMH ... just doesn't make sense that people still cling to this stupid misconception.

  • Of course they can. Why not? I don't believe that there will always be sexual tension if it's clear that it's a friendship & nothing more.

  • Of course they can. I have always had male friends and the very idea of being attracted to them is quite simply absurd.
