Hi Christian

In my view, absolutely yes; otherwise as soon as a girl has a boyfriend/partner she would be precluded from forming any other friendships with boys in case it became serious. I have many friends of the opposite sex; some interlectual, all interesting and some with a mild flirtation.

Is this something you find difficult, personally?

In my opinion this is of course well possible.

But strange, when I went first time on holiday to Cyprus I went with a friend (actually a colleague from work) and all the local people did not want to believe that he was only a friend, it needed either to be my boyfriend or my brother.
So, some people seem to have a problem at least in believing that such kind of friendship is possible....

i believe that a man and a woman in order to be really good friends they have to go throught the erotic process firstly...and if they see that theres no common ground for a relationship,then they could be friends....what i want to say is that when a man and a woman first meet,they cant start by being friends.I believe that everything starts from a zero basis and then u will see how it goes....
For instance if i see a nice lady in a club of course i d like to get known to each other coz i like her outside look firstly as it is natural.I like her as a WOMAN and for this reason i ll go and talk to her,i wont go and talk to her just to be friends!
I hope u catch me people,everybodys opinion respected no matter if we agree or disagree!!!

christian, i almost choked laughing reading your post.
i agree with you that when a man and woman or a woman and woman or man and man meet for the first time they can't be friends.
i also agree that they start from zero.
but that does not mean that they have to go through the erotic process as you say.
there is a lot of difference between lust and friendship.
i think a man and a woman can be friends and have no sexual relations, you just have to be mature enough, you cant be sleeping with every woman whom you see to find out whether she is bad in bed so that she can be your good friend.
i have a lot of female friends and they are just friends.

They can be just friends. But how many times that a guy approaches a girl in a friendly way do you think that what he wants is just friendship? I think this happens only in 1% of the cases. Only in cases that people are lonely are looking for new friends. If they already have good friends then if they are out looking for others what they need is not friendship but sex/adventure/romance. This is not always but most of the time.
