Always remember, there are 3 types of guys

A)Guys that hit on the woman once, she shut them down, so now they're sticking around hoping she changes her tune one day

B)Guys that are waiting for her current relationship to go sour, so they can hopefully play rebound guy

C)Guys that did have a sexual relations with her. Sometimes they stay f***g these dudes, even while in a relationship

You wish. Somehow I am doubting that you are some kind of adonis...


I think men and women can be friends. I have always had male friends. That isn't to say you don't think they are attractive, but friendship is worth more than a leg-over that can ruin a friendship. I really don't undertand why any mature adult cannot have friends of either gender.

or alternatively that a leg over is taken so seriously that it ruins a friendship, a mature adult should also be able to accept that.

There was a girl at university who I really fancied. We were good friends, but I frequently tried to get my leg over and was constantly rebuffed with "It would/could spoil our friendship". Even then I realised that that wasn't what she really meant. She had really big boobs and an Old English Sheep Dog which bit me.

Oh- This is older than the Kindle vs Nook debate.

A man can only be friends with his natural born daughters- Every other female on earth is fair game. Maybe thats wrong, (i don't think so) but thats the way it is. End of subject

Kitty-All those friendly hetrosexual guys at work?....They only want to nail you a few times, then they want you to go away. I've only met just one woman that I liked so much that i'd probably prefer talking to her than having sex with her, just one and i'm 48 years old.

Are you from Pakistan? Your view of “fair game” still leaves a lot of room for incest .

Better Question...can men and ATTRACTIVE women ever be just friends?

The only way is if she is your brother's girl.

Whoever asks that question obviously still has not grown and matured enough...
There's always the sexual attraction factor (from both sides) which will always hang in the air...Always...
