    I am starting to wonder if for women "being friends" with men is analogous to men "being fuck buddies" with women.

    why would you wonder that from what she said?

    I think women are surprised when men want more just as men are surprised when women want more. You see?

    i would have said a screaming "yes" to this a couple years ago, before i:

    a) met some wonderful women who i have developed beautiful relationships with (
    b) have come to doubt the "platonic" nature of a couple of my friendships with men

    i feared women for a while because they were often catty with me, and i didn't meet many women with the same interests as me until i started college.

    like he wants to be sex buddies and she wants to be friends or they are sex buddies and she wants a relationship?

    i don't know...i'm completely out of this whole sex buddy loop...i know nothing about it...have no friends who've ever been in that situation either. it seems like some new concept or fad that happened while i was away or...something.

    I will not lie it is very difficult for me to remain friends with women. As I'm sure every girl I know feels this when I'm around them. Damn hormones!

    I would never sleep with a platonic male friend if I have one. Boundaries! Just as I would never sleep with my female friends. *shakes head* Just because they have a penis doesn't mean you have to ride it.

    Men sometimes enter relationships where the implicit motivation is sexual. Then it often turns out the woman wants more. Rather unsurprising.

    Women sometimes enter "platonic" relationships with men where the implicit motivation is friendship. Then it often turns out the man wants more. Yet, this is surprising.

    I think men want to be around women. So they try to be friends. But, the thing that is motivating them to want to be around women is not friendship. It is sexual energy.

    I would never be friends with a woman I was attracted to. Boundaries.
