Nowadays men and women are interacting very actively at studies, work…Simply life. They have common hobbies. So naturally, the question arises: “Is it possible for a man and a woman socialize withoutsexual attraction, tension, passion and stay in “Platonic relationship”?
In this question, I won’t find the only “true” answer. All of us have experience and individual opinion. Part of us wouldbelieve that “he” and “she” can be just friend, and other would claim that it is nonsense – if two opposite sex people are friends, one of them most probably will be interested in more than just aplatonic relationship.

Sometimes, thedistinction may be outright impossible!
Actually in a tiny little part of my brain questions are on: “how can a man and a woman be just friends? There can only be one relationship – and it‘s bed. It‘s funnywhen he‘s telling - we are just friends. A man and a woman can only be lovers or something like that, but not friends. I’ll open my mind little bit and say: «I think that a man and a woman can‘t befriends, unless he‘s gay or she‘s lesbian.”
The basics of friendship are interests and confidence, not gender. Mankind is thinking, that friendship with women is of a higher quality, they can expresstheir own feelings not like with a man. Women like to have “pretended“ brothers, because with a male friend she can feel safe.
I have some great friends who are men. There is something much stronger...
