Yes men and women can. Problem is most males are boys until 40 and women are ignorant of that. Most males, until 40, live for sports and that sort of "penis", measuring crap thus are boys NOT men. Sadly many never become men!!
Yes. I have some very best friends that happen to be guys. I will even go one step further and admit that the guy friends are usually better friends then girls. I have best friends that are girls too but they have been harder to find.
I have more guy friends than I do girl friends. With guys there is a lot less drama and they don't sugar coat things when you ask them a personal question. However I have had to turn down a few guy friends because they ask me out. And I have fallen for a few of them as well. But once we clear up how we feel about each other we stay pretty close friends. So I would have to say yes.
I had one, yeah just one, he was my best friend friend, I started really liking him, he didnt share the same feeling, today we r not friends anymore, I runied that, I would say NO, and I have never had any guy friends since that.
They can be friends, but I wouldn't advise it. If they're friends half the time one of them begins liking the other, and sometimes it works out and they be together, other times not so much... You don't know how many times I've seen it happen. People have even asked what to do on ask.com. Just stay friends okay? Make sure neither of you feels for the other, or your friendship can be broken.
I also have more friends that are male then female. My family has few woman use to being around males. Only becomes a problem if one of the sides developes feelings. Other wise its awesome to have friends of the opposite sex. :)
I have many guy friends. My only advice is that..:If you wanna keep them as friends, don't get attracted to them! It gets so awkward and if you date and it doesn't work out, you could ruin a good friendship.
If you want a successful long lasting relationship with your opposite sex friend only & no girlfriend/boyfriend in your life.... opposite sex friends are great if you are single! If you can't hang out with your gf/bf with your friend then it's a BIG problem.
My hobbies revolve around animals, so I have had plenty of girls that I was friends with. Sometimes you have to clear things up between each other as far as intentions are concerned, but once you do the girls are usually okay with it. I hate to say it, but women are a lot better at dealing with this than men are. If someone ruins the friendship, it is usually the guy, because he couldn't deal with his "best friend" rejecting him. I speak both from personal experience and observation.
