Wait, are you saying that you are incapable of sustaining a non-sexual relationship with the opposite gender? That you want to be romantically involved with every person of the opposite gender you chance upon?

Come at the original poster too smart ass and no.
The point of what I said is:
If you know someone well enough and your close share everything know almost everything you there feelings ther way of thinking whats the barrier between being together? Saying it? I can resist urges but lets think about it this way...if your sharing all this shitt 90% of the time feelings come out of it.
It always goes down that road for me.

Look.
The point is you have your ways I got mine for me if I get close enough to someone feelings occur that has nothing to do with me plowing her.
The point is if we get close enough its anything but foolish to deny theres so romance there. Its normal. As for the question at hand...yeah it can happen but honestly lifes to short to stay tied down in the end. I make it a habit not to get close to friends of opposite gender to keep this from happening/

It is entirely fine for you to have your opinions differ from mine. But if you want your views to remain unscrutinized, refrain from posting in Intel.

So you keep away from members of the opposite gender because anytime you have a friendship with one, it automatically escalates to become a romantic interest?

Obvious im unharmed by public opinion as an artists I need to get used to it.

Pretty much yeah.
I have that personality that most feel as though i need to comfort or give them advice like a brother or something. It always makes us close male or female. And in a relationship I dont need that being a wall.

This is relevant...how? People seek advice from friends, and they know they will be comforted by people they trust. Just because they ask this from you does not mean they are romantically interested in you, or for that matter should you be attracted to them.

Killing is easy once you forget the taste of sugar
Sounds like someone got cheated on from the title..

Can a man and a dog just be friends? Why or why not?

Is it impossible because sex will eventually get in the way?

What kind of stupid is this? I'm friends with tons of girls and there is no sexual attraction between us, just like I have guy friends with whom I have no sexual attraction.

I'm also friends with my math professor who happens to be female and there is definitely no sexual tension or attraction going on there.

I go to some of my guy friends for advice or comfort, but comfort in a brotherly/platonic way, not because I have any romantic interest in them whatsoever. Does this mean I can't go to them anymore because, as a woman going to a guy for help, I will start having romantic interests in them if I spend any length of time with them?

No, it's just I don't understand why a troll such as yourself can't stop the flow of your pmsing about my topic. It's a little weird. You seem to be obsessed.

when I think about my guy friends, at least 75% make me gag at the thought of a romantic relationship so, I say yes.

is it possible to be just friends even if you're attracted? of course! part of being friends is respecting what the other person wants and needs, and if that's not the same thing as what you want and need, you need to look somewhere else. doesn't mean you can't still have fun together.

I have a female friend that is just a friend, and sometimes we'd have casual sex because we can. But there's not a lot of tension of "being together," we're honestly just really good friends.

that's weird

If you are a female and you play any sort of role in my life at all, I have most likely had vivid sexual fantasies about you.

uh

you may not be attracted to them but i guarantee you part of the reason why they remain friends with you is because they want to fuck your brains out

doesn't mean you can't still have fun together.

i like where this is going

Ypur missing the pont by having someone you can emotional come to that leads to forming a close friendship.
Thats when I owuld consider it more than friends since more girls out here consider having a bf an emotional bond get it?
The point is the way I see it when a male and female get close enough (and the situation calls for it as stated with being there for someone) feelings ensue, I never said because they come to me for help were gonan fcuk I was mere stating wed get close.

What is it, Garlock, close friends or more than friends? Are you romantically interested in every single human being you form a close relationship with?

girls out here consider having a bf an emotional bond

Guys consider a relationship an emotional connection as well. So what?

when a male and female get close enough (and the situation calls for it as stated with being there for someone) feelings ensue

I have a very close relationship with both my mother and my sister, and I have no romantic feelings whatsoever for either. You would do well to remember incest, even if consensual, is illegal in most countries.

(shrug) I'm an aromantic Asexual. I just want to be friends, and I don't have any romantic or sexual interest in anyone. But that's not everybody.
