Can men and women be friends without sex?Page 19 of 53    (13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53)
Without a doubt they can!! Some of my best friends have been male and they bring something different to a friendship that sometimes women can't .... in terms of giving their standpoint on issues from a MALE point of view! Not only that, but if I want to challenge myself physically and go do some activity that requires more than a bit of athleticism, I think it is great to have a male friend who might also be highly athletic and make my feminine side whine a bit but yet have me become pissed off enough to keep up with the challenge. Men make great friends and I respect them for reaching a comfortable level where they can appreciate my feminine side and not cringe like an immature school boy if I want to talk about things that women should only discuss (not).

676 you cannot seriously think that way - I don't know if you said that to get attention or what - but if you are serious - its people like you that is wrong with the world...
everything is about sex, women are just objects and property - grow up.
I have male friends that I have been friends with for 15 years. No they are not ugly or desperate - some of them happen to be famous musicians. They live in the sex comes easy world. Thats why when they get a good friend, they hang onto them. They have respect for me - and I for them - RESPECT. What happend tomorrow if you were in an accident - and couldn't function anymore? Would you just have male friends? Those females that you supposedly are boinking that you call your friends, would you just dump them out of your circle?

men and woman can be friends with out sex, and if your partner is going out with woman well do u trust him? Cause trust is a big part, If there is no trust then hes not the man for you, my husband passed away 2 years ago and he had many woman friends and i was fine with it and he was fine with me having men friends, but there has to be trust.

YES men and women can be friends without sex..............I've proved it for years.

Throughout my years, I've had more male friends than female and did not have sex with them. I get along with them better - I would rather talk about sports and cars and guy-stuff, then sit with the women and talk about shopping and gossip. Don't get me wrong, I have women friends and love em to death, but I'd rather hang with the guys and joke around.

The great thing is that some of my women friends are the same way as me so my girlfriends can sit with me and the guys and have a great time.

Back on the subject..........I have had guy friends for years WITHOUT having sex with them.

The big thing is TRUST!!!!! I am a very trustworthy person and the guy that I'm with HAS to trust me, but I also prove it to him. And if the guy I'm seeing has 'girl friends', then he needs to also be trustworthy and prove it back to me.

Yes, I'm best friends with my perfect match. I'm honestly not attracted to her anymore, and I just let her sleep around *laughs hard

I have a guy friend. I have been friends with him for about 3 years. He is my best friend and we have been growing closer. The boyfriends I have had, have been jerks. They get close to you physically and dump you. I have emotional closeness which I longed for with the others boyfriends and just didn't get. He may not be the one at the moment, but, he is the best yet. I have been taking classes on healthy relationships and I have learned what I have done wrong and others in my realtionships and I am working on myself. I personally would like the whole package but I haven't found that yet.

we are now living in this type of society to where it is still alright to see other ppl even if you are now married or have a serious girlfriend/boyfriend. i'm sorry but that is just a bunch of hogwash. i don't even dare to tough a guy in a wrong way if i am now steadily seeing someone. i was raised in a proper Christian home and don't believe in that garbage. yes it is quite natural for any men to after a beautiful lady but that does not give the excuse to go to bed with them when you are already married or seriously dating someone. end of story!

i've been friends with some guy for 2 years on line and on the phone, he moved in with me, stayed here for 2 weeks and left. sex was not the problem.....we didn't have any. the problem was he didn't like the idea that i did all of the cooking and cleaning. he was supposed to be out looking for a job since he was new to the area but instead sat on his ass and watched tv all day while i was working.

Yes, they can. When I was younger, I used to sleep with guys and we never had sex. You have to know what you feel. People who have sex with everyone aren't that in touch with their feelings. Everyone you meet generates a different gradation of feeling in you. This society tells us it's wrong to explore most of this. It says you lack sexual prowess if you don't conquer everything you can. That's why the economy is in the state it's in. People whov'e got to conquer everything there is to conquer. Have sex with the ones your'e supposed to. Don't with the ones you're not supposed to. End of problem.

I was just about to leave this thread when I saw this and it grated like nails on a chalk board


i was raised in a proper Christian home


Exactly what do you mean by this?

Try not to hurt your neck when you look down from your high mountain to explain it to us...especially when explaining to those that we're raised in a not-so-proper Christian home.



we are now living in this type of society to where it is still alright to see other ppl even if you are now married or have a serious girlfriend/boyfriend.


No we do not, otherwise ppl wouldn't be complaining that their significant other "cheated" on them

I suggest less time with your head in a Bible and more time looking at the world you live in.



tough a guy in a wrong way if i am now steadily seeing someone


When do you touch a man in the wrong way and is it wrong when you do it?

Yes they can. In my world, I have always had more male friends then female and it's all good and there is no "underlying" tones of sex.

Flip side - I have maintained great friendships with men "after" a relationship (long or short) - between mature adults who don't have silly issues about it - it can be a postive thing - and not a big deal. I tend to go with the fact, it's the people who can't let go and move on - grow from a relationship! It's those that cling, have issues, and can't just go with the flow that continually use the excuse men/women can't be friends. Yes we can. Just takes maturity and understanding and the ability to laugh at the fact - it wasn't meant to be.

Some of my best friends have been women without any sex involved. Men and women bring different veiws and are great people to talk to. A woman can make me understand things a man could not. They have different veiws and outlooks and those are very refreshing. So I say yes a man and a woman can be friends without sex.

I have many friends that I love dearly and will do anything possible to help them in their happiness and life's journey but I have not approached sex with them. Although I must admit that I may have fantasized about them. My friends are dear to me and a reflection of my good will to others. I want their lives to be full, positive and dynamic. I f I can help them realize some of their goals and milestones, I am truly heartened and sex is secondary!

Peace

It's definitely okay so long as people know there's no competition. My best friend is a girl I've known for quite a few years now. She's like a sister to me and I look out for her as if she was. She's one of the first friends a new gf meets. Why you might ask...well the answer is simple. If the new gf meets my friend she'll know my friend is not a threat. She'll know that when my friend and I are haning out (alone or otherwise) that there's nothing to be worried about.

It's all about everyone's comfort level with everyone else. I feel that if I try to hide my friend suspicion will arise. However, if I am up front about how close a friend she is I'll never have a problem. If there is a problem you talk it through so that everyone feels comfortable.
