The infamous friend zone! People have varying opinions when it comes to opposite sex friendships. A vast majority of people I talk to believe men and women cannot be friends. I have found those people that believe it can work also have a friend of the opposite sex whom they’re attracted too. I don’t believe this type of friendship can work.
When discussing this topic in a group, several men said this friendship is impossible. They also said the woman controls the relationship and if she ever wanted to take it to the next level, they would. They continued stating the friendship is just a rouse to stay connected with the woman. They really aren’t friends.
Women, in general, believe men are their friends and wouldn’t even dream of taking things to the next level. If men are sexual beings who are driven visually then why they would befriend an attractive woman? Most wouldn’t unless they had ulterior motives. And in other cases, these so called friendships are actually intimate relationships that can’t/won’t evolve into something deeper.
I was friends with a man for more than 10 years and one day out of the blue he professed his love for me. He said he always wanted to talk to me but didn’t know how to transition from the friend zone. Since that incident, three other of my so called male friends decided to come clean about their feelings/intentions. This solidified it in my mind that men and women cannot be platonic friends. After all love is simply a friendship on fire!
