Dating or just friends

From the same article: “Men rated cross-sex friendships as being much higher in overall quality, enjoyment and nurturance than their same-sex friendships.

What they reported liking most was talking and relating to women—something they can’t do with their buddies.

Meanwhile, women rated their same-sex friendships higher on all these counts.

Men don’t choose women because you’re taller, smarter, richer, funnier or more sophisticated.

Men choose women because you listen to them, provide empathy and support and affection – none of which he really gets from his guy friends.

As for me, I do believe that men and women can be friends.

She can keep up with you on runs (and in the pub afterwards). She's a great friend, who you also happen to want to have sex with. Sure, she wants to hang out with you all the time and she feels comfortable talking to you about anything, but don't fall victim to misreading her signals as flirtation and end up in an awkward situation.

“When Harry Met Sally” posed the age-old question, and seemed to answer it: No. This popular You Tube video posits largely the same premise – men will always want to sleep with their platonic girlfriends.

But if you’re lucky, you can fall in love with your best friend.And while I don’t trust college boys to teach any life lessons in platonic friendship, even science validates their claim that men will sleep with their friends.From this Psychology Today article: “In a study published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, Sapadin asked more than 150 professional men and women what they liked and disliked about their cross-sex friendships. Men, on the other hand, more frequently replied that sexual attraction was a prime reason for initiating a friendship, and that it could even deepen a friendship.Either way, 62 percent of all subjects reported that sexual tension was present in their cross-sex friendships.” Pretty predictable, but important for women to understand.If a guy is making an effort to hang out with you, it’s probably not just “as friends”.He’s merely accepting friendship, in lieu of dating you, because it beats the alternative. Having no girl friends, and, therefore, no one to confide in.
