Can men and women really be just firiends, and if so… Can their significant other handle it? I say yes if both think of each other as like a brother and sister and don't spend almost every day together. I still think men have it wired in their heads that women are always romantic prospects.
Women can take it or leave it when it comes to the attentions of men. I think a woman could still get most of her needs met by a man even without the sex (am I wronge?). Men on the other hand need that sex component to be with a woman day in day out.
