I guess it depends on the situation. I doubt they could stay just friends if one of them is attracted to the other. In either way, I don't like taking too big of risks, so I just have one girl friend, and she is the girl I have a crush on. I make a conscious choice not to make friend with other girls.
Just in case I do happen to get in a relationship with the girl I have a crush on. And even if she doesn't care about me having female friends, I rather not get involved in a situation where she might get jealous in any way. Now, she has male friends, and I don't care. I just have two best friends, she is one of them. I don't really need more.0

Here is my thought-out opinion, and I hope it matters to you.
Yes, guys and girls CAN be friends.
But that is not the true question. The real question should be, can guys and girls be friends without having any attraction or sexual feelings get in the way?
The answer to that is B - No. Men are designed sexually. Truth is all of a girl's guy friends have imagined a girl naked or imaged her having sex with him. I think girls can have just guy friends, but a guy can never PURELY have girl friends. Feelings do indeed get involved. Emotions rise through friendship, and compatability is shown in friendship. Therefore, attraction is easily created through the liking of one's personality and compatability and comfortability. There are many opposite-sex friendships that have existed through life, but guys can't ever see a girl as just purely a friend. Unless he thinks she's completely ugly (and even then, they only discover their nonattraction by imagining her naked) or they have already hooked up before. Most of the time that decreases sex drive and imagination if they've already had a taste of the cake. What makes sexual tension rise in friendships is the mystery of what it would be like to be intimate with them sexually.
This is just how I feel and what I have really observed and discovered throughout the years.0
