  • No, normaly one likes the other. Harmless if your single but if your married I think that is asking for trouble

  • If your single, sure because who cares if it goes somewhere else. If your married, no because not only will someone care but way to many people will also get hurt.

  • YES
    My best friend is a male. We have no romantic feelings for one another and we are both married.

  • I dont think my marital status should determine who I can be friends with. I have straight and gay male friends, some since high school. I think they can.

  • I have male friends that I have no desire to get "personal" with ... they are simply friends.

  • I'd like to think so but sometimes things happen between a man and a woman and honestly I think if everyone would start off as a long time friend there would be less divorces :/ IMO

  • Actually thats not true, my best friend from h.s. is still my best friend today. We are both 52 and he married his h.s. sweetheart and is very good friends with my husband of 27 years,

  • yes.

  • I feel like it's entirely possible. Just because you are of the opposite gender does not mean you want to be with the other person.
