This is hard for most women to understand, but the simple answer is no. Men and women can’t be friends. The reason why so many women have a hard time understanding this is because women CAN consider males as friends, but males can’t.
The typical male is only going to hang out with a female he is physically attracted to in hopes for any oppertunity of intimacy. Whether they get a nice warm hug or get to watch her wear nice clothing. Sometimes they just hang around in hopes that intimacy will grow over time.
Guys don’t want to hang out with ugly women, plain and simple. They might associate with them casually, but never become true friends because men are better friends to other men than women. men can relate to each other better.
The Women Side of the Story
Women can’t see that there can’t be true friendship between men and women because on their side of the spectrum, it’s possible for women to feel strong friendship without any sexual attraction to a male. So when guys say it isn’t possible, women are left confused as to why.
What’s even worse is that women who come to this realization end up disappointed because they end up realizing how little true friends they actually have. It’s almost like people who hang around a rich person because of their money. They aren’t real friends.
Most of the guys who hang around women legitimately care about them, but the care is because of the sexual attraction. Just think about what “friends” that are male and female do together. It definitely isn’t the same things that two men or two women do. In fact, when male and female “friends” get together, their activities are VERY date-like.
So can men and women really be friends? What do you guys think? Experience and consistency tell me no, but I’d like to hear your stories.
