Re: Can Men And Women Just Be Good Friends?

A lady knows she has a good male friend, if, she can sit on his lap, and doesn't need to mention the first thing that "Pops Up".

Re: Can Men And Women Just Be Good Friends?

I have 2 male friends
One is an ex-boyfriend from a loooong time ago
The other a colleague

I value their friendship and advice because they are honest and their opinions differ from female friends'

But I have an inkling...
that if ever I offered to take things along a more physical/sexual route...
that they would oblige!

Re: Can Men And Women Just Be Good Friends?

It happens sometimes, doesn't it, you think you're just mates and out of the blue they make a move. Maybe I'm just bad at seeing the signs.
I remember one work colleague, we'd been mates, allies and had a good laugh together for years, then out of the blue, he asked for something more.
When I gave him a good telling off...."God man, we're in our fifties, both married, love our partners, have families, homes, a life, you know my husband, what were you thinking?".......he just replied sheepishly that he thought it would be rather nice!

Re: Can Men And Women Just Be Good Friends?

I had two male friends for many years and they were just friends, nothing more. I valued their friendship as much as female friends.
However first one then the other met a woman, romantically, and both times the women objected to him having female friends and demanded it end.
How sad.

I agree it must have upset you, and for that I am sorry for you.

Yes, I wasn't so relaxed around him any more, less off colour banter and joking around, in case he took it as an invitation.

Now I'm retired, I only see him with his wife, as part of a couple and he's more my husband's mate.
