Can Men and Women Really Be Friends?
Can men and women really be friends? The answer may surprise you. Yes, men and women can be just friends. Having friends of the opposite sex does not mean you will have a sexual encounter with them.
There are times when men and women need a friend of the opposite sex to help answer questions about their current relationship. After all, it is nice to hear someone else's opinion on certain matters.
If a woman hears a mans perspective other than her husband or boyfriend, she may learn to understand what makes men tick. The same goes for men. This helps to understand each other a little more.
If your wife, husband, girlfriend or boyfriend have a best friend of the opposite sex, do not jump to conclusions. This could cause problems or end your relationship. Jealousy can destroy a relationship real fast. At least they have someone to confide in and that can offer advice or just an ear to listen. Women and men like to joke, laugh and have a good time with friends. There is nothing wrong with having someone of the opposite sex to do this with. Life is too short not to have as many friends as possible.
Not all men and women are out for sex; sometimes, it is the idea of having a friend that will just be there no matter what and that makes us happy. So before you ruin a good relationship complaining about opposite sex friendships remember, men and women can really just be friends.
