Can a guy and a woman never be simply best friends?

"I think that they are committed", "I think that they are siblings", I think that he likes her", "I think that she likes him", and many more comments are usually passed by people.There are so many interpretations which people make which makes the friendship stagger. Many a times even the partners within the friendship tie feel as if there is something beyond friendship from the other end.There is a love within the string of friendship which is much higher than the romantic love and is beyond infinity. And if there is something from your side say it yet never assume anything from the other end. I have a friend "Rohit", he is my bestest buddy and I totally love him for the same. So friendship is the most beautiful aspect of life, much more beautiful than a romantic relationship. And all of us must respect, love, admire and beautify it. What do you feel?

It's rather hard, indeed. Whenever I want to simply make friend with a guy, he always asks me a question, are you single? Or he starts asking my whatsapp id or my phone number, and after that he asks me to date with him....Lol

You should give ur whatsapp no or some contact to that person... and than he will show u his real face... if he respects u and dont misuse ur id or cell number... than he is good otherwise you have always blocking option...

It happens here, a girl and a boy in friendship are always labelled. And also many times, the partner(mostly male), start getting a feeling for the other, which spoils the friendship. I have had many male friends, very close too, and it never turned romantic between us. Though most of my friends fell for me, but they always kept the friendship above their feelings. And i feel, if we know the reality, what others say should not bother us.

I had two guy pals in school that were truly good friends, nothing romantic. I did lose touch with them and hope they are well today. I have a guy friend online that I truly like as a brother.

I've had a few male friends off and on in my life. In almost all cases, though, I'd have to make myself scarce whenever they found a girlfriend. I understand this, but at the same time it made me sad. Always our friendship would revive after the girlfriends were gone. But if my male friend got married, well that pretty much would mean he and I wouldn't see each other anymore, even though we might still be friends.

That should not happen. Apparently friendship is a big word and has a very deep and pure meaning. People should keep continuing the friendship.

You are absolutely right. Friendship is way better than relationship. Even I have my female friend. People usually see us as a romantic pair. But I have defied all of them. Friendship remains forever and my friend you don't need to justify people about your friendship with Rohit. As far as you and Rohit are concerned, it is Ok!

I would like to have a male best friend but it's as though everyone's only looking for a relationship or something more than "just friends".

Yeah I have experienced the same as well. I don't know why people just be good friends and not beyond that.

It's possible but in my experience it is unlikely. There will probably be feelings more than friendship on one side or the other....but that's just me and the majority of women friends I had I'd slept with at some time

You are right...people always assume there is something going on if they see a girl and a guy together. I have good friends who are guys...but i never get too close to them for the same reason. One i did have a guy friend who i thought i could prove this point with...that girls and guys can be friends...until i realized he stared getting feelings for me. ...and then i was uncomfortable because i didn't want to do anything to lead him on or anything.

Heheeh that's the whole problem. If we think that yes we can be good and really good friends the other may develop feelings towards us ans that disturbs everything.

Some women and most men find it hard to keep a relationship platonic.

True, people often end up ruining their friendship, overthinking about the scope of taking it a step ahead.

I have heard a sentence like this,"There is only one possibility that a guy and a woman can be simply best friends,that is,one of them is ugly."

true but then what does Rohit feel is also important. Does he consider you the "good friend" or "more than friend"
