i'm taking psychology course and my professor brought up an interesting controversial article on how some say that a female and a male cannot be just friends. in other words, if i get along with any of my female friends longer, than i am bound to fall in love with her and vice versa. i think there are a lot of movies that follow this idea.. where the characters are just friends and all of a sudden, they fall in love. what do you guys think??

i certainly don't believe this because there are a few of my female friends that i just can't see myself dating not because they don't reach standard, but because we're friends. some i would bone though

anyways, so what are your opinions?

I dunno some of my female friends i've know since they were like 12 so I don't really fancy them in anyway.

I really don't see it as true becasue i have quite a bit of female friends and i've only "liked" a select few of them. But it could be true in some cases, idk.

i disagree. i think you can be just friends with someone. just imagine there was this girl who made you laugh and was really loyal to you, but you didn't find attractive in any way... (i'm in this situation, feels good man)
#16
Clearly he hasn't heard of the friend zone.

Oh, and most of my friends are girls, and I feel no romantic longing for them.
#18
that's rubbish, it's more like if you are friends with loads of girls and you're a guy you're more likely to be gay
#19
That's just plain stupid. I have been best friends with a girl for my entire life.

Bullshit. My best friend is a girl, and though at one point early on I fancied the pants off her, now we're basically related. I have loads of friends who are girls actually. Probably equal to guy friends.

Fat stinky pile of Shlt.
I've been friends with 2 of my chick friends for 2 and 4 years,
never once thought about dating em.

Of course, nailing them was never outta the question,
however, dating never crossed my mind as a good idea.
I AGREE
#24
um, i've friendzoned several chicks, and a bunch of dudes.

I'm bi, so if i didnt' do that with a lot people i'd get frustrated over not being able to be with them. I don't think it'd be different if i were straight.

Sometimes a boy and a girl can become such good friends that they see each other as family. Yes, they fall in love, but it is the same kind of love you feel for your brother or sister.

Link to the article please, I get the feeling it's unfortunately one of those not very scientific social psychology things. Pity.

But ya, girls and boys can be friends. I've a female friends who I have no romantic attraction towards, neither of us do. Then again we're both in long term relationships, so that might factor in.

he's clearly an idiot!

out of all my friends, i'd say about 60% are girls and all my best friends (minus one) are girls. i'm much closer with my girl friends than my guy friends. and i've never had any sort of romantic feelings for any of them nor have they for me.
#36
as long as one or both of you doesn't find the other physically attractive in the least, then you're good. Or if you're already in a meaningful relationship that's going well.

As hilarious as this is, I agree.

It's natural for human emotions to progress from one to the next. I've experienced it before. Hell, there's a girl I've been friends with since high school that I'm suddenly starting to have dreams about. I think my subconscious is trying to tell me something.

Lol ok this is also a Psychology teacher, so instead of everyone just randomly saying "No thats bullshit!", lets ACTUALLY talk about this. It does have some truth to it because we are humans and if you get along with a girl, its just unconscious thinking, and its one of our primal instincts. Its obviously not like the movies all the time because, its the movies...But to some extent on a sub-conscious level you do want to "be with her" lol. Anyone else who ACTUALLY knows something about Psychology who wants to comment?
