Can A Female and A Male Be Best friends?

Everyone Says no But I Think They Can. I Have a male Best friend and we've never seen each other in that eye. We've Been Best Friends for 9 yrs strong and We Can Talk about anything. But There Was an Incident last summer where we both were changing in front of each other and i felt a little something for him but it was nothing really

Yes. My best friend is a girl.

Of course a male and female can be best friends. Mother Nature :P may interfere every now and then, but overall, they can be the best of friends.

Your words in your profile are some of the best I have seen in a long time. You are extremely sensitive to people. A rarity in these days. I would imagine you have a girlfriend as well as you deserve. This is what I see in you-someone great!

It's the trust factor and the personality traits that draw us to each other. If your best friend is male that's all the better, he won't borrow your favorite blouse or shoes. I have a male best friend, for almost 30 years now. He's married to the woman I call my best girlfriend. We all three have vastly different personalities but that's what I love about them.

Of course. I have a best friend that's a chick. Anyone who is there for you, an will always have your back, and defend you, can be your best friend. I thought I was falling for her when I was 13, but that was just freaking puberty and hormone change. It is nothing really, and completely okay and natural.

I think the real question is; can a guy and a girl be true friends? Well yes, they can. A best friend that is the opposite gender is lucky, but a true friend that's the opposite gender, well, that's a blessing. Take it from someone with both of those. So yes, a guy and a girl can be best friends.

Definitely, a girl and a guy can be best friends. Most people say no because one tends to fall for the other, if not the both of them fall for each other. In my opinion this happens to everyone who has a best guy/girl friend, it may not be now but it happens sooner or later.

Yes they can be best friends,but most of the time it ends up in two different situations

1.the fall in love with each other
2.if a male and female are best friends then if someone else has a crush on the girl or boy the person having the crush is hurt that their crush is hanging out with someone else

They can be friends but it is just a natural attraction between girls and boys and at some point in the friendship you will find yourself started to like that person as more than a friend.

I have two best friends. One of them is a guy. He's always been there for me as a friend and nothing else. So i would say neither HAS to have attraction to the other.
