    • MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION  

      I continue to believe that it could be possible, and I try often to make it happen, but have not been successful. If anyone has any advice, I would love to hear it.

    • OMG!!!!  I have been friends with a man who is straight for 7 years.  We have slept in the same room, have attended all sorts of events, travelled, cried and laughed together and never not once has he crossed the line.  There is a strong attraction but neither of us have crossed the line.  

      This is the first and only man that I have as a friend who has never tried to push up on me in that way.  Yes it drove me crazy because I thought something was wrong with me then him for sure.

      It’s rare but possible.

    • Yes, not too many.  I have a few friends that are male and they are straight.  If they are gay, no problem, we will be like buddies.  For those who are straight, they are like either an older or younger brother to me.

    • It is possible - but i’m told that odds are good that the thought of “relations” with you have most likely occured!

    • I can understand for usually at one point in time, they will want more from me.  I usually tell them flat out it is for friendship and if they cannot clear their thoughts, friendships drop.  There are times, it is the other way around.  Luckily I never had a time both my M friend and I went overboard.   Usually I stopped him or I stopped myself before it’s too late.

      I tend to have good male friends who can be my grandpas.  I teased to be their mistress only if they die soon and leave me the inheritance.  The older they get, the greater their sense of humor and good to tease.

    • I seem to make a better friend than a lover...most guys that I meet I end up becoming very close friends with...It has always been like that...I have more close male friends than female...I am not sure...sometimes I think maybe I use that as a security blanket...to keep me from getting hurt...I will be your friend but not your lover...it’s crazzzy!

    • Yes I honestly believe that a woman & man can have a true friendhip without being sexually invovle.  my best friend of 20 plus years is a man and not gay or anything.  My ex-husband had a serious problem with that and tried to make me choose between him or my best friend.  I had to tell him that he was in my life before him & will be their when and if he decided to leave me and geuss what he left me and I had Terry still.  He is married to his beautiful wife Shashanta of 20 plus years and me and her get alone great.  Our children has grown up together since elementary schhol all the way through high school.  Terry and I hang out all of the time just the two of us.  My mother thought for the longest time that Terry was a woman by the way I talked about him until she relized that it was a married man I was friends with.  She asked him not to long ago what did his wife think about our relationship and is response was to my mom “that is wife is secured in their relationship and that I was no threat to her“. I thank GOD for my best friend becuase without him I don’t know where I would of ended up. He is my everything and I mean that in every since of the word.  I no longer call him my best friend he is my brother, deacon at church, confidant, listening ear, spritual counselor, and my most favorite he lets me have it when he feels that I’m in the wrong about anything and don’t hold back any punches thats a friend for you.  That is what I call a true best Friend, he may not be my biological brother but he is closer than a brother to me...and I have two biological brothes 1 older & 1 younger.  So I say the hell with men who has insercurities with them self and the opposite sex.

    • YES! I have a few male friends, we have a very good understanding where we stand in our relationships. My hubby is aware and has met them just as I have met his female friends. Its all about the mindset of the friendship and know where to draw the line with each other and have a good understand with all parties involved.

    • Yes of course.  I don’t have any close male friends.  My sweetie has one and I don’t mind.  She moved to another state last year and they drifted apart.  I guess each individual friendship is different and needs to be examine to make sure one isn’t really wanting more and just waiting for the right weak moment....that’s all.

    • Yes of course.  I have a ton of men friends.  In fact, far more of my friends are men than women.  

       And yes, some of them get “ideas” but once it’s settled that those things aren’t going to happen, then we‘re friends again.
