I feel as though you can have opposite sex friendships, but there need to e BOUNDARIES. I am aware that some of my male friends fancy me. I make it a point not to hangout with said friends without my guy present. Not that I am interested... I just do not want to put myself in a position where they make an asshat of themselves. My guy also has female friends... but he does not spend time with them without me there.
I am the kind of person who sees females as a potential threat to my relationship. I will block you out of his life if I feel that you have feelings for my guy. I am observant and aware when such situations arise. The only time it is ok to hangout solo is when the other person is truly a platonic friend... like no chance in hell anything could happen. This is not to discredit the loyalty of my partner, but I know how women get. We are irrational and want what we cannot have. We see a commited man as a prospect and I am not about to have anyone prospecting my man for anything. #scorpio0

Maybe married people could have opposite sex "friends," but only in exceptional circumstances, truth be told. And there would be little platonic visiting between the "friends."
I was going to say that I do have one opposite sex friend, but she's lesbian, so there's no potential sexual component to our friendship.
It's an eternal question whether guys and girls can be nothing more than friends. I'm not sure they can. If they can, it's rare and I've never actually seen it, even once. There's usually a hidden (and/or illicit) sex aspect in such relationships.2
