Many people think that between two sexes cannot be any friendlines. How do you think, can it be?

mmmm yes i believe it does exists...you can be friends with a guy/girl without presenting personal feelings into it as long as you know the border line...:) im saying this out of a personal experience :)

if you dont know the border line between two friends of opposite gender then for sure all your relationships will evolve as log as you are friends and you both know it then it does exist! im speaking as a person who has alot of guy friends and my best friens happens to be a guy yet we both treat each other as brother and sister and our relationship is not beyond that..it is cause we know the border line and the fact that we are friends helps blocking the intimate crazy feelings from gathering...and those wh dont know how to control it, dont believe the friendline between man and woman exists it differs from one person to another!

Men and women are the same. The only thing that separates them is genitalia and sex hormones. We aren't hunter-gathering barbarians anymore, so there's no reason to act like they're different from one another. It's not convenient anymore for society to separate them into different roles, and therefore wrong.

Actually there are a lot of other differences between then, like cerebral areas of command and so on. The main question is what is supposed to be a friendship line. Is it just a situation when you like to be next someone but doesn't want to have sex with him/her? I think it's wrong because people are compelled to be together by biological and evolutive behaviors, and a real (I said REAL) friendship has also its amounts of sexual attraction.

I don't really care if there are slight biological differences in between them; they are both human and both capable of the same things just as much as their opposite sex is.

The 'friendship' line you speak of is when you look upon them with no romantic interest. Biological mating interest is present in all humans and cannot be avoided. Just because your friend is eyecandy, though, doesn't mean you're actually going to consider asking them for sex, nor does it mean you'll develop romantic feelings.

I've been friends with many females in my lifetime. Only one of them has become my life mate. All the others are close, but just sisters without a blood connection. They're beautiful, but so what? They're my sisters... even if I was single, it would be wrong to try anything strange that breaks that barrier.

Sometimes, people are just meant to be friends, even if they are of sexual compatibility.

Really, are you going to base your opinion on a movie? --------

Yes, not everything leads to romance/sex; though the world might be a better place if it did :D

Oh, how men wish.

Of course. The stereotype goes that women have an easier time being just friends, but it goes both ways.

Also, I think people strangly act as though the friendship is erased the moment sexual tension/attraction/whatever is introduced, and that's silly. Maybe its a little more complicated and emotional now than it would be without those factors, but if the presense of attraction ruins your friendship, you can rest assured it wasn't meant to be, at least at that time. Friendship or more may be possible in the future. But probably not with every friend, and you probably don't want to sleep with all of your friends any way.

I sure don't.

Yes. There were girls I had no feelings towards that I was good friends with. In the end though we all pretty much got pissed though. Most of my male friends we just fell out and stop talking. All of my female friends ended up in fights.

Side: exist

You can tell how friendly a girl is towards you by looking at her feet. If her feet are well past behind her ears, she's really friendly towards you ;)

However, if her feet are firmly planted on the ground, you've been friend zoned ;)

Side: exist

The fact that I have only male friends while I zero female friends and those who were, it usually lead to no longer friendship, and if there was a girlfriend, 99% want to know how many female friends you have, so it was always best to just have zero.

Friends with benefits doesn't count as friendship. It just doesn't exist; however, unless it is a female and gay male. Then, there are friendships between man and female. Male and butch female maybe, but haven't seen it much to make an opinion.

I disagree with you. According to psychologists males and females may be good friends, because the understand each other more. And I know one statement, which sais that there is no female friendship, and I agree with it, because there are a lot of evil, gossip, and envy. That's why the majority of females has a male friend, who is thr brst friend, by the way.

NO. I had a friend not too long ago and I believed him to be my best friend and we were very close. When I was having relationship problems he was even there to support me and help. At the time I didn't know he was doing so for his own reasons. After my relationship ended badly he tried getting closer to me and I believed he really liked me so one thing lead to another and now he hasn't tried to talk to me at all and I see what kind of person he was now and what he was really after.

So that particular man was an asshole. It doesn't mean men and women can't be friends.
