I mean true friends without any sexual tension between them. My ex-girlfriend would never allow me to have female friends and at the time I disagreed with her whole-heartedly about the fact that men and women never stay friends if they like each other. Now, years later I'm starting to see some basis of truth in her statements. There aren't many female friends of mine that hasn't resulted in some form of sexual contact. Does anyone feel that men and women can be just friends or do they also find that one of them ends up fancying the other?
