I had a thing with this girl for a few months and we really liked each other but I decided that I didn't want a girlfriend at the time so I called it off just before we could of initiated (cold feet?) and I told her I didn't want a girlfriend and it wouldn't be right for me at the time due to circumstances I cbf explaining now but she understood.
but yeah we didn't talk for about 3 months and she seemed pretty shattered about it all. Anyway after about 6 months (a few months ago) she started talking to me again and we became good friends and she would say how good of a friend I am to her and stuff like that. She would tell me about troubles she had with boys at the time and asked me for advice on them and how they are all d***heads and why she's alone and how she's fat and ugly because she can't find a decent guy being a typical girl etc. When ever she described the kind of guy she wanted it sounded like she described me.
Then not so long ago we were talking and I said I'm single girls don't want me ha ha she says "you could get any girl you want, you just want to stay single" and I said nah I've been looking for a while no luck yet though. Ever since then she's been flirting like crazy and its kinda ruined the whole friendship thing we had. I liked it when I could open up to her, you can't do that with guys. Why do girls take any chance they can get to get in relationship?

It's not about taking any chance you can get to be in a relationship with any guy. It's about taking a chance to be with the guy you are in love with. She obviously has something for you and when you like someone a lot then it's bound to happen. That's why I never stay friends with guys who have rejected me because I don't want the emotions to come back. She probably thought that she was over you but now realizes she's not. I'd suggest that you don't respond to any flirting whatsoever and I'd even go as far as saying try and keep your contact to the minimum for now otherwise she may get the wrong idea and have her heart broken all over again. As for your main question "Why can't a girl just be friends with a guy?". Well they can, I have many guy friends who I certainly do not want a relationship with. It's just that sometimes a thing called love happens and you don't plan on it. Girls and guys can very much be friends but that will only be successful if one partner has no feelings for the other.0
