Does anyone think it's possible for a man and woman TO BE JUST FRIENDS with out having sex? I consider myself a nice looking man and I have a very good lady friend who is also very nice looking. We've been friends for so long, and we are attracted to one another, but we both worry that if we have sex that will ruin the friendship that we have. Please no bashing, I just want someone's opinion on this subject. I'm not sure that a man and woman can be just friends, but alot of people say it is possible I just don't know anyone like that.

it depends on the two you are referring to. Yes its possible but it isnt for everyone.

But that being said not every person can be friends at all. Some people dont know the true meaning of friend.

So imo the sex of people have nothing to do with it. Its the people themselves.

But if your significant other doesnt want it, it is always best to not be. If someone chooses a friend over family it really isnt a friendship you are wanting.

I've had guy friends that I had friendships and physical relationships with and they lasted for decades. But as earlier mentioned, when they found their wives and I found my husband we drifted apart. It's sad to lose their friendship but our marriages mean more to us. That being said their friendship meant a great deal to me and got me through some really hard times. I say enjoy the friendship and any physical relationship you have doesn't have to ruin that. It's only when one party starts to have romantic feelings and the other does not that things get difficult.

I had a female just friend for a few years and ask her if we could go to the next level numerous times and she always said no.Then I met the woman I wanted to marry then all of a sudden she was ready to give it up.It all got seriously messed up and I can't talk about it.

Who cares...people are going to do what they want anyway regardless of who they hurt.

Because they may say they just friends but it is more than that. They will be carrying on like fools behind your back if you let them get by with it. Women who are willing to talk to married men always want more than friends. Men don't have the sense to tell them no.

If the man is gay it can. If the woman is not attractive to the man it can. If the man is blind it can. If both the man and the woman are paralized it can. Otherwise you are pretending that you don't want to have sex and just prolonging your frustration. Men are wired for sight stimulation. If the man doesn't want to have sex with you and he is normal, it's because you are not attractive to him or you are a total Beach (to put it nicely) So, Yes a man and a woman can be friends without having sex, if the woman is his Grandmother,Mother, Aunt, Sister or Daughter, other he is in denial and needs to be best friends with the one who put that ring on his left ring finger. Oh and just ask your wife if she minds if you have a "Just Friends" friend and let me know how that works out for you. lol

Yes they can. Its called self control. Just because somebody wants to do something doesnt mean they have to act on it. Think about it.. sex just doesnt "accidentally" happen. Ive never heard of anybody tripping and falling into a vagina. geeze..

they can't be friends because they eventually start screwing each other.

or they just go back to screwing each other. I fell for the lie of being friends once but I hope others learn from my life and never allow their husband to have a female friend. It will always go back to sex for a man and woman. My husband isn't even what you would consider a catch but his old flame went after him like he was Brad Pit.
