I believe that men are more physical and women are more emotional. However, remaining only "freinds" with a woman could be put in a lesser but similar catagory of monogomy. There is no definete answer to your question as it depends on the man. I have freinds that are the opitomy of what Billy Crystal describes men as being in the movie "When Harry met Sally." so as I stated before it really depends on the person. This is not to say that it doesn't cross our minds but some of us would never act on it. Testosterone can be a real b*tch. If you don't believe me just research what kind of injections they typically give women with low sex drives. Cheers !!!
PS- I can honestly say that I have women freinds that I have never had sex with and for the lady below I would just like for her to know that we are not all alike. How would you feel if someone said that all women were gold diggers? Please don't hold us all responsable for the actions of others as there are a few good guys out here. We are just not pretty boys.
I just have to add that I have several men who are "just friends". In fact, my two best friends are male, I have always had an easier time being friends with men rather than women. yes, there are some who are unable to be just that, but I would say in my experience that is the exception rather than the rule.
Perhaps you are having trouble findng someone who wants to be only friends because most of the people on here use this as a dating site?
I have a very good friend of 11 yrs that is male that I am friends with we had talked about the relationship thing and decided against it cause we were really good friends. I look at him as a brother too much and he knows everything about me.
Good on ya Grimlaw! I have never had any difficulty remaining "just friends" with any of the girls I hang out with, or with the ones that I chat with on-line! I am quite happy in my relationships, and have no need to look outside them for something "extra". If anyone male or female wants to just talk for a bit, chew the fat, or see whats up in my neck of the woods, give a yell! I use the same name on Y ho ho ho.

I think that friendship should be the beginning of any type of relationship that anyone gets into. It helps to build trust and communicative levels between the two parties.I am learning this the hard way but know that it is possible to accomplish.
The trouble with "men" is they are generally scum. A man(boy) is only after one thing. Sex. Anything else is just there to fill the time between sex. That is what I tell my daughter (16). She understand that but it still doesn't keep her from screaming and crying about men.
If a man could find a woman capable of draining him completely - and promising to do it again - soon - she could have ALL of him "between times". He, we will do ANYTHING between times just so long as it is punctuated periodically with what he wants.
