I believe so. We can make and keep friends regardless of the gender.

In my experience, that is not possible. Eventually, one of them will fall for the other.

Someone will tend to fall for the other. That's what usually happens. If the relationship fails, you lose the friendship.

I think it depends on the individuals concerned. I believe it's entirely possible though.

While men and women can be friends, it is difficult for the relationship to be entirely platonic. Our genetics simply drive our attraction to the opposite sex!

Yeah, you are right. I have a guy friend who happened to be attracted to me. He courted me and poof, I lost a friend when I turned him down.

Never! I had this guy friend once who keeps trying to hang out with us and I thought nothing of it until after a few months when he and his friend tried to court me and best friend. We stopped hanging out after.

There will always be sexual attraction but you don't have to always go there with them. You can get a lot out of a friendship when you keep it platonic.

Yes, of course.
