Ok, so I know that guys and girls cannot be friends if the girl is at least somewhat attractive to the guy..
but WHAT IF the girl is like, super duper ugly? Although she is ugly, she has an amazing personality. Also, the girl is not interested in finding a boyfriend or sex, therefore not interested in you.
do you think it is still possible to be platonic friends? or are you going to want sex in the end anyway?

Girls and guys can be just friends, it just depends on the grounds on which the friendship starts and whether there is any physical attraction. I think in a lot of cases, guys or girls become friends with people they are interested in but don't think they have a chance with in order to get closer to them. In this case, they will probably never be truly just friends because the relationship began with one being attracted to the other. Same thing is one is interested in the other but one or both are in a relationship or otherwise unavailable at the time.
In cases where the friendship begins as just that, it is much easier for them to remain that way in the future. It is definitely a possibility one or both will develop feelings for the other in the future, probably particularly so with the less attractive one towards the more attractive one (or either way if of similar attractiveness). I'm currently dealing with this with a good friend who I developed feelings for and who agreed to a date in the fall if things don't change for either of us (yup, things are gonna get awkward). But I also have a bunch of female friends who I'm not at all interested in anything but friendship with (as in wouldn't want to date or hook up with). While I wouldn't say any of them are ugly, I don't find them particularly attractive, which I guess probably makes the friendship work.
So after rambling for a while, I guess my answer is yes, a guy can be friends with a girl he doesn't find physically attractive. It's probably less likely with a girl he is physically attracted to, because if they look good and you like their personality, why wouldn't you want to date them?0
