Men and women dating and friendship

Another issue is that culturally, we have a problem with the idea of love that doesn’t conform to romance or familial relationships.

it’s the obsession with the question that’s the problem.

It’s a sexy topic, rife with stereotypes and joking-but-not-really stereotypes about men and women and teasing the idea that your supposedly platonic friend is actually harboring a secret crush on you and whether this is a good or bad thing for the relationship.

Defining love as having two meanings – one for family, one for everyone else – limits the ways in which we perceive the world.

The ancient Greeks on the other hand, acknowledged many different kinds of love.

Period.""I have more male friends than female friends and I think it really comes down to interests and personality or whether or not you have something to talk about. It actually feels more comfortable [to me], and I think that's the key.

They are my friends because they all started out as guys that wanted to date me or sleep with me. It's pretty easy to tell if you feel something other than friendship or vice versa, and in that case you just move on. If it's too labored or analyzed, then it'll never work." Lucy Bohnsack, 29, President of East Camp Home"The only time it works is if both parties are in happy relationships, sexually satisfied at home, and there are strong professional or interest reasons to be friends." Pablo and Beverly Solomon, 64 and 57, Artist and Fashion Executive"There is a big group of us, both male and female, who all take boxing together at the Main Street Gym in Midlothian, Texas, a suburb of Dallas.

Soroya Bacchus, 51, Psychiatrist"With my line of work, I come into contact with beautiful women all the time.

But for me, it is a matter of knowing when not to cross boundaries.

The likelihood that at least one party is drawn to the other sexually is very high, regardless of whether or not anything ever comes of it.
