Why Do Men seek out Women friends?
Posted by: andrew william, 1-Aug-2007
Most men are comfortable with their buddy male friends due to common interests and a feeling of comfort. You can always see that when friends meet together, the women and men would separate and congregate among themselves to discuss common interests. Guys will on their common interest talk about games etc while women about clothing and shopping etc. But when do a guy or girl find it a special interest to seek a friend of the opposite sex, purely plutonic and thus developing a great friendship.
My friend Karen. Talented, pretty and intelligent.
Men will always have a difficulty in drawing the line between friendship and attraction. Women on the other hand are quite clear about relationships and will most of the time not cross the line.
I have such a great friend. She is smart, attractive, and we both share common grounds of interest. We always call each other or meet up to discuss about the problems we face in relationship. Sometimes just being a listening ear is good enough. My friend will always ask me how I am getting on etc. Its good to sometimes talk to the opposite sex because you will not know why your partner reacted in a particular way, was it justifiable etc until you hear it from a neutral party who is of the opposite sex. She on the other hand would also like to know why men react the way they do.
Karen and I have at times discussed why we did not consider each as partners. The answer is obvious; we are great friends and will remain that way forever.
Yes, i do agree with the last sentence. My best friend is a guy. There are some of our friends suggested us to become as a couple, but haha.. I cant imagine it. Now he already have someones special, and me too. But the good thing is, our partner can accept when me&him going out together bcoz they know that me&him, close like brother-sister.
i also have a guy best friend. i feel comfortable talking to him rather than my girl friends.
he has someone special right now and i myself have someone either.
There's no problem at all because we help each other in studies, since he is the best law student in our kulliyyah. I feel proud to have him as my best friend.
i believe that when we have friends in different gender, at the same time it helps to improve our relationships with loved ones..
