    Bad experience?

    Let's hear it.
  • From a mans perspective... all women "friends" are potentials, so erm... no. Unfortunately something always gets in the way... :wink::lol:

    If a woman is attactive it is always in the back of your mind that you'd like to shag her.

    Mothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, daughters -in-law (depending on your/their age group), friends partners etc, etc.....
    Can you be friends with them without b0ning them? I hope so :shock:
    In which case why wouldn't you be capable of being friends with other females regardless of what is going on in your head?
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.
  • I am most offended by this thr......... oh sod it, even I'm bored of that one now.

    I think it depends on the context of "friends". There are women at work I'd consider to be "work friends", then there are the "wifes friends", and the WaGs of friends. But women I'd consider to be "mates" (in the non-biological terms), can't think of any.
  • One of my best friends is a girl(!), we are now both married to other people, and have known each other for 20+ years.

    Lots of people find it strange that there is no underlying chemistry, especially as she is stunning, (as am I obviously :lol: ), but we have grown up together, and only see each other as friends. I suppose she's more the sister i never had.

    She turned you down when you were younger Chris didn't she?
  • Men are only friends with women they find attractive allegedly.

    In my experience, no. Well actually yeh, till I inevitably make a pass.

  • boils down to a simple equation

    good looking guy + good looking woman = can not be friends
    ugly looking guy + ugly looking woman = can not be friends
    ugly looking guy + good looking woman = friends, with the ugly wanting more and the good saying no
    good looking guy + ugly looking woman = friends, with the ugly wanting more and the good saying no
