As a guy, I feel the only way we could be JUST FRIENDS would be if neither of us felt any sort of attraction to one another. But if this were the case, why would I bother being friends with her, seeing as she would be below my standards. Therefore, this might lead to her potientially falling for me as in this case I would be the better looking one ( in my mind at least)?
No, dude. Seriously. People who say that guys and girls can't be just friends make my blood boil. There are people who have like 30+ friends of the opposite gender. Yeah, I'm sure they eventually catch feeling for all that shitload amount of people -_-
If you only want to be friends with good looking people then I can't argue with that but I dont choose my friends based on their looks. I choose them based on how good I get along with them and how good a friend they are. Im not attracted to any of my friends and neither are they to me.. Some of them have their own girlfriends too. It all comes down to how you choose your friends.
I don't know if I agree honestly. I have a friend named Albert and we are really good friends right now but there was a time where he didn't know boundaries and was starting to be uncomfortably clingy with me and I made it clear that I just wanted to be friends (this was after deciding that i didn't feel anything towards him no matter how hard I tried) and we're just friends today. The most I ever give him is a hug.
