Hahahaha ... I think that depends on what is meant by "as well as you know yourself", but I do have a few "brothers" that I have known for 30 years or so, and we can depend on each other emotionally as they are just a phone call or Skype away, but we cannot be here or there as they are too far away ...
Does that count though?
"and you know she or he will be there when you need them"
thats just the biggest expectation in a relationship.
I'm gonna watch this chick flick tonight... lol....
I agree with Constantine's second post. It is not possible if both people are attracted to eachother. As long as the girl is not attractive, I don't see any barrier to true friendships. But if she is, why wouldn't I want to have sex with her?
I can have pure friendship with a guy only he is
Otherwise, it is like a volcano.... it's gonna erupt sooner or later....
Bridget, people hide the feelings because they can't get with the girl/guy. That is no different from USA. But, in the case where the two people are attracted to eachother, the relationship will probably always involve sex unless both the man and woman already have partners.
Agree! We are animals.... It's all about finding the right hormon...
agree with u guys, if there is atractiion, sooner or later, with the help of the alcohol in a party or without it, will happen something. Is a old story... but the persons are attracted for different things, right?... if a guy can have sex with a plastic doll, can be able to have a friendship with a woman??
i mean, I do not think that be ugly is a condition for develop a real friendship with a person of opposite sex, beauty doesn´t imply sexual attraction, at least beyond the times of highschool.
"i think there's really no pure friendship between a man and a girl~~the closer, the more complicated."
I disagree. I have extremely close friendship with some girls, even very beautiful ones. But, that is because we have reasons not to be attracted to eachother, such as both being in relationships when we became friends. It just depends on attraction.
It depends on one's level of attainment; certainly you can have a trusted opposit sex friend.
You may not be that close of sleeping on same bed every night but you could do businesses together, share your feelings, get reasonable advice from one another, could be extended to ur families. I see nothing wrong with that. Its all about self discipline. Life does not begin and end with sex
Impossible is nothing.
I have more close female friends than close male friends. I tend to treat my partners no better or worse than the platonic friendships. I don't see what's so difficult about this.
Yeah, how is this even a debate or problem for...I don't know, anyone? OH GOD THEY HAVE A DIFFERENT PART BETWEEN THEIR LEGS HOW CAN WE BE NORMAL FRIENDS. I actually have no idea what any of you are even talking about by this point.
my best friend is a guy. i'd trust him with anything. i tell him everything. whatever he asked of me, i'd try not to refuse (no, not talking sexual favours here, you asshats)
part of what makes our friendship so great is that i know i can be 100% honest and say anything on my mind (whether it's about him or anything else), and he will accept it. i'd like to think that he feels the same about me
if any guy i liked couldn't accept my friendship with him, they wouldn't have a chance. my friendships come first, because the ones i hold close to my heart become a part of my family.
Ekki, is your friend either A) not handsome, B) an ex-lover, or C) in a relationship?
Otherwise, why aren't you hooking up?
Hahaha. 纯爷儿们好！Although actually, I don't know if I could even drink one bottle of 二锅头 anymore, let alone five. I'm getting old or something. Rock shows are good though.
A lot of my closest friends both in the States and elsewhere have been ladies. They just listen more better, ya know? And they value other people that not only listen, but have interesting things to say back to them. I'm also very humble, and I work out every day. YEAP.
Hey Mike, what will be the next time your band play? I'd love to watch sometime.
The next time my band will play...that would be never. No, we still need a 2nd guitarist and a singer. Watch for 危机 to start burning up stages near you sometime in late spring/early summer. Maybe. Hopefully. Probably!
Whatever. Do you have problem with it @ GodFatherrrrrr ... ?
I don't wanna involve any of this sarcasm shit..not in a mood...
Leave me alone..
I never said I could rap good
But I can still blow it up in your 'hood
Think I made it out of Harvard 大学?
My bad - you can't read simple Chinese, eh?
Forget about it, don't wanna cause any butthurt
You insult yourself well enough - my time, it ain't worth
And I'm out.
What, Mike is actually DeMoya back from the dead?
By the way, that bastard is officially dead since he didn't accept my facebook request. Doesn't matter that other people have talked to him recently - he's dead.
I wish I would've bookmarked that shit. His rhymes were golden. I don't know if I'm qualified to fill his shoes, but who is?
i'm so glad he called you a rapper and not a raper.
I'll take "Therapist" for $100, Alex.
he's a raper, man can he rape.
Hahahaha ... 莫明 ... "DeMoya"? An evolved version of DeMola? Being who he is (or was), I think his next "form" should be "DeMole" instead? ... or, could he have come back already and currently possess one of these names on the forum?
... and people, you have completely turned this into a anal-pressure-release session, instead of what Ami wanted to talk about ...
yes,best friend,opposite gender,i witnessed this kind of thing,but i believe it's rare.and it's so hard for the gf to deal with this.and sometimes fights happened because of it
even if my best friend was a girl there will always be a chance we'd get into bed.
so the answer is no.
plutonic friends don't except except pre-revolutionary times ;)
Phil, I think you totally missed the point. You're talking about being friends with someone who has a boyfriend, and thus should clearly not be interested in you. Of course those relationships are common.
Harmonious, the "friends of boyfriends" who seem like good friends are more often than not just horrible friends to the boyfriend, and will be trying to jump on you as soon as you and boyfriend have a fight. I expect my guy friends to be casual friends with my girlfriend, but there is something really wrong if they start calling her all the time.
also depend how deeply the friendship is , i only have one with who talk every thing share everything , it's beautiful , it's pure and keep for life coz he's a gay
if a best friend for girl opposite , gay should bethe best choice, coz they inteligent brave sensible understand women and open and they have the same statu or identity problem with woman in this morden society morden world ,
PS : they like mans too and they are more sincere to women they don't lagut at woman's weakness and they always their best supporters
people can be mature in anyway but how face with their real heat it's another thing
go through that link... you will get better i think..!!!! lets get it started!!!
“... this sort of thing is often the preserve of people who are emotionally immature, if not always young in years... if you’re not into a relationship enough to do it publicly, you probably shouldn’t mess about.” Because is someone who sleeps with you on a regular basis but is too ashamed to admit it really a friend? Or just kind of a sexy jerk you hang out with? Sam has sworn to never do it again; to only have casual sex with strangers. “Go to a bar!” he says, “There are lots of [people] there!” Which, oddly enough, may just be the more salubrious choice.
Sounds like ONS is healthier than FWB...
