I don't trust an Englishman who finds cricket boring. That's possibly why I have so few male friends.

Most of my friends in the UK were female, probably because I went to an all girls school.
Most of my friends here are blokes because the Italian girls were too damn precious and pathetic for my liking.

But most of them, if not all, wanted to shag you.

Trust me on this.

I have female friends I'm not particularly interested in shagging.

But if they were to ask me if I wanted to, I wouldn't say no.

Default Re: Can men and women ever be just friends?

I have plenty of female friends (well, at least 3), some who I would and some who I wouldn't. But I must admit I always know which category they fall into.

Some girls do and some girls don't
Some girls will and some girls won't
And some its just as well

NO! Mainly because at some point a female "friend" is gonna ask for some kind of favor that only your main girl should be entitled to. That's just one reason. Next.
