Assuming the attraction is what lead to you being friends in the first place (which I think is a pretty accurate assumption), can feelings, both sexually and emotional (aside from caring for them as a friend), be completely absent in the friendship?

I find that a lot of times I can be just friends with a woman, but in her mind it's not like that. I have a lot of female friends that are just that, friends. And I care for them emotionally, but not physically.
Then again, I wouldn't be friends with a woman I lusted for. I would need sexual gratification or I would not bother to hang out with her. Why torture myself?1
