Is it really impossible for a man and a woman to become just friends?

Some people said that when a man and woman become close friends, they'll naturally turn into lovers. But I have some male friends and we are just friends although we're pretty close. So what do you think?

Hi! Of course a male and a female can be friends,even great friends.Some just think It can't be but why?The only difference we have s that they are males and we are females.I have both female and male close friends and it really doesn't bother me what others might think when I'm with my male friends.I just can't limit mself whom to befriend.In fact,I have male best friend since Highschool and up to now that we have our own families we stayed that way,aside from our times with our families,we managed to still have our bonding time as in having dinner,jogging and going to spa together LOL..

It is very possible for a man and a woman to become friends, infact great friends. Man can be very protective and does not turn against you in times of crisis, They can be relied upon and always there when you need some help. though, there are some cases that friendship can lead into something special, as long as you have the same good intentions then it is fine. But in over all statement, man and woman can be great friends.

I have more male friends then I do females. I find men easier to be around, they are more relaxed and although they do gossip, its not half as bad as women. I have many many male friends that I have never thought about romantically even once. So it is definately possible.

Depends on the person, But from most guys, they took for granted. Specially when the girl is down or broke. It really depend on the person, because on my case, it was friends until the end.

Well, I can say that for me this would certainly be possible. I'm just not attracted to men. But for friends, sure, they're okay. Although most of my guy friends are gay anyway so it's really not a possibility that we'd ever become lovers.

It is true in most cases man and woman turn to lovers from good freinds. But still i believe the friendship is there. I have many guy friends and few are very close. there is no such feelings.

Hi As for me, I don think that it is impossible for men and women to be just friend. This is because some of my friends they are female and they become my friend for so many years already. So I think that there shouldn't be a problem for men and women to become just friend. Friends sometime can do the thing that lover cannot do. I also think that friend are more loyal then lover. They always help you when you are in difficulty.

It's not impossible at all, and I think it completely depends on the man, unfortunately. I have a number of male friends. One of whom I consider to be one of my best friends. I have even been on trips with them, and stayed in the same hotel room. Nothing different than staying in a hotel room with my female friends. If a man is the type that thinks he has to have more than just a friendship with every female he knows, this won't work. But if he is a normal, up to date, type of guy, it's not going to be difficult to just be friends at all. I wish you luck and understanding. Have a great day!
