Default Can Males and Females just be friends ?

So we were having a discussion the other evening over dinner .. Few couples out for drinks and a meal ....

One of the females in the group received a text a few days earlier from a former male co-worker that is married with children ...

The text included innocent pictures of him and just some small talk about his travels...

The consensus from the males was that "guys" don't text "girls" without a motive ... and that motive is usually keeping the door open for a relationship or sexual encounter ..... and that "most" guys are not looking for a female as a friend.... BTW she is attractive ...

The Females ALL disagreed and felt males and females could be friends and these kinda texts are nothing more than someone saying hello ....

What says the THT braintrust .... Just curious

Girls can have guy friends and it's not sexual. Those guy friends would bang the girl if opportunity presented itself.

If a guy texts my wife I would confront him, not my wife.

Didn’t we do this last year ?

NO.

It’s very simple,we’re pigs and have only one thing on our minds.
Not our fault,it’s a biological thing. We’re driven to reproduce.
If a guy is texting a girl he is thinking about getting stinky with her period.

thats the point we were making ..... the "males" are always looking for an opportunity .... It may appear innocent - but guys don't text girls just to be their friend and have a buddy

and females are always oblivious to this ....

NO, given the opportunity the "male friends" would act on their desires.

My 2 cents is that absolutely YES. I've got some very attractive female friends that I would never ever bang. I do have some female friends that I would most definitely have relations with as long as my wife said it was ok first lol. I would also have relations with some of my wife's hot friends lol.

BUT to say as a general rule that guys and girls can't just be friends to me is absolutely bogus.

so you regularly text these females just to say hello and shoot the shit ?

I think the point was that guys don't reach out to females unless there is a motive ....

I've got several women friends I've known since High school and still keep in touch. Never banged any of them. Don't text often but will catch up every so often.

Also have women I keep in touch with...just in case.

In your scenario...with pics, that guy wants to get with her. There's a motive on that one.

Typically no. There are rare exceptions, mainly those that involve being friends all the way back to early childhood.

My wife and I both have that situation. Her best two friends growing up are now married to one another. The guyís mom was her babysitter when she was little, and the girl moved to town when they were in middle school.

Similarly I am very close friends with a girl that I grew up with. My mom kept her (and me) when we were little. Iím friends with her husband as well, and have been since kindergarten.

Ineould say in the OPís situation of the friendship goes back that far it can easily be completely innocent. If it came to exist in adulthood, no chance......the guy wants to bone her.
