This is a joke, right?

Any guy who, on some level, doesn't have sex in their mind when with a woman roughly their same age is either gay or has run out of Viagra.

Now, that said, I suppose it's possible- if one really puts their mind to it.

Oh hell, of course I'm kidding. Men & women can easily be good friends.

Yup, they can. Though I have to say some of my male friends had something else in mind at first.

Most of my good friends have been males. Where there is not the sexual attraction it leaves room for a great friendship. I don't think that a couple of people can be great friends if the attraction is there.

I enjoy straight men as friends because I feel comfortable and have fun and I don't experience the competition crap I have so often experienced with same sex friendships.

I had a very good male friend and we tried for a VERY short time to make a romantic thing out of it because of the great friendship but we both agreed quickly that it just wasn't going to work and stayed great friends.

Yeah its possible if the male has low libido, or is paralysed from the waist down.

women cant be friends with men. neither american women nor foreign women can do it. too much is at stake.
does not matter how nice they are its a survival thing.
america has grown up, divorce has shown men what the real relationship is, its not pretty.
know what happens after tarantulas mate? awful. here is one for women, know what happens after a moma gives birth to 1000 baby spiders?
even worse.
