Re: Can a male have a female best friend without intimate fe

I think it's absolutely fine and normal for men and women to have platonic friends, even best friends, of the opposite sex. My only slight proviso would be that if either friend embarks on a new relationship perhaps a little sensitivity is needed at the beginning.

It is possible. Many times you just connect and get along with some people without romantic undertones.

A male can't have a female friend without intimate feelings. It's either 1 of the 2 or both have hidden intimate feelings. ^_^ Tell the truth guys!

@Dolor, I totally respect your opinion, but still hold out that it's possible, and know this from personal experience!

Well and good...
Your situation is one in a million.

Maybe he has this feeling but afraid to spoil the kind of relationship you have now.

I think "NO". Even if they're acting like only a bestfriend but deep inside they have special feelings for each other. I had a bestfriend for a long years and he submitted that he has feelings on me and yet it's not allowed because we're just a friend.

Well, I think it can happen as adults but only after one or both of them have tried to be intimate at one point or the other. I doubt that they usually just set out to be besties from the onset, it most likely is a trial and error but-I-don't-want-you-outta-my-life kinda thingy.
