    It Is Extremely Pathetic

    how uncannily easy it is to spot the perverts. The men and women who just HAVE to ruin platonic connections with their perversions. "You hugged him, you are a girl so you must want to kiss him" Oh puh-leeeeeeeeeze! Hugging is a natural, instinctive, agape gesture in the human...

    In My Honest Opinion...

    My circle of friends consists of mostly males. They consider me one of them, a bro, which is not always as good as it sounds (My poor ears). I eat, drink, hang out, shop, chat, and many other things with my male friends and this does not mean that I am interested in more than a...

    I Hope So - If Not, I Have Some Very Weird Relationships!

    For more than 16 years I've been friends with a co-worker. (Not now... welll not a coworker now!!) She and I can talk about real issues, and have done so many times. Yes, there are limits to what we can share appropriately. I would never want to risk damage to my marriage. But...

    I have a platonic friendship with a mature man. I have for 14 years now and we are extemely happy that we have one another. He's given me something even my girlfriends couldn't give me. Insight into how some men think as I have given him my opinions into how some women think. We...

    I Get Annoyed, When People Imply Romantic Connections

    I truly believe men and women can relate to each other without thinking sexually. It's hard when some people in the world don't believe in that. One of best friends, he is the godfather for a his female friend's kid. He hasn't and doesn't plan on being romantic involved with...

    Ann

    We have been friends for over 30 years. We have spent many alone hours together, but it has never gone beyond hugs. Some friends are more important than momentary gratification.

    Not Always What Others Think... Shame On Dirty Minds

    I will never fight another woman (or a man for that matter) over a man's affections.  First, in case you haven’t read my posts here I am not looking for another man but I have met several guys that I have great friendships with.  Secondly, if I am dating a man and another...

    † Maintaining Platonic Relationships †

    You and I  have heard the term platonic relationship a lot of times, but I was  hardly aware of the significance of the term besides the knowledge that it means non-sexual love. However, there is much more depth and thought to this "platonic love" concept than mere non...

    Worried About What People Think Of Me

    I'm afraid that people think I'm gay because I have more women friends than guy friends. I'm completely straight but just prefer hanging around women because I feel I can open up with them a lot easier. Maybe this is due to me not having a very open relationship with my dad?

    Not Taboo To Me

    I just don't get some people who can't except a legit friendship with the opposite sex (presuming both are not homo sexual). I had two guy friends who was really close. One of them named Micah (we was friends since the age of three) would always tell each other about our problems...

    Need advice... I started a very unexpected

    friendship with a teacher at my children's' school. It came completely out of nowhere; I didn't even see it coming. But it's light, and it's fun (which is extremely refreshing in my overly-serious, drama-filled life right now). Sure, my husband and I have our fair share of...
