    Harry Burns: Because no man can be friends with a woman that he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her.
    Sally Albright: So, you're saying that a man can be friends with a woman he finds unattractive?
    Harry Burns: No. You pretty much want to nail 'em too.
    Sally Albright: What if THEY don't want to have sex with YOU?
    Harry Burns: Doesn't matter because the sex thing is already out there so the friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story.
    Sally Albright: Well, I guess we're not going to be friends then.
    Harry Burns: I guess not.
    Sally Albright: That's too bad. You were the only person I knew in New York.

    If you are a man, what on earth is the point of being friends with a woman if there is no possiblility of sex?

    And after you have sex, what is the point of being friends with a woman? More sex? Meh, might as well move on.

    Are you saying that you only have male friends because there is a possibility of sex?

    Well its a fact that I did not want to have sex with ALL the female friends I ever had. However its also a fact that those I didn't want to have sex with wanted to have sex with me! So somebody ALWAYS wants to have sex with the other, but its not always the guy.

    He is saying if women did not have that thing between their legs, men would not talk to them.

    Yeah, but some guys claim there is no possibility of sex. So why talk to them?

    i saw this one movie where the father explains to his son of the three relationship possibilities between a man and a woman: (1) they don't know each other, (2) they are lovers (3) they are bitter enemies.

    OP, your opening question tells me that you never experience a serious relationship before. My suggestion to you is looking for the one soon ( who really cares about you ) to accompany you for Xmas eve. Goodluck and world peace!

    To all the younger guys: Don't ever quit acting like you are a friend of a girl. In my younger days it paid off bigtime. BUT, you've got to make your move at some time...don't be waiting forever.

    I'm not sure the video is made by the OP - I've never seen mountains in the background of ODU....

    I think guys can be friends with girls. We just want the "with benefits" part.

    When women and men get together, two things can happen. They fight or ____.

    All the women in my life I considered being my "friend" sooner or later I had sex with. The closer you get to a woman, if she isn't too ugly, the higher the chances "it" will happen sometimes. And after that... well, most of them just faded away.

    Might have helped, that I always avoided to be surrounded by ugly women. Life's too short.

    +1, definitely a benefit there.

    But really I don't find this true. The reason I remained friends with females who I didn't find attractive is because its easier to open up about my own personal feelings and/or insecurities with a female than a male. Also with having had gay male friends as well, I find that same comfort to talk about feelings that I never felt with straight male friends.

    The gay males whom I was friends with WERE attracted to me though. That debunks your conclusion.

    Men don't want to be friends with women. They are annoying. Any guy that has women for friends either wants to nail em or they are fruit muffins.:twisted:

    Not really. So when you are pouring your heart out to them, do you know what were they really thinking or where were they really looking at?

    What about that one female friend of yours that you want to have sex with (not a relationship), but know as soon as that happens your relationship goes to crap? Do you value sex or the actual friendship more?

    probably depends on how horny you are at a given moment and how much you had to drink

    I've found that you can truly NEVER be FRIENDS with a woman. She either doesn't trust you or she knows you can't possibly take the place of a female friend. In most cases she wants you to act like a man and not a so-called "friend" after a while. Hang and get the sex. That's what us guys were born to do.

    what about em? they're most likely using u as an emotional punching bag when they're down, fishing for compliments etc....kind of like a guy version of a girlfriend or in other words they're using u as sexual validation making her feel attractive without the need to put out. Do u let yr guy mates take advantage of you without holding up their end of the friendship etc why should it be different for women.

    Many in this thread have never had a friendship that was not based on: "what's in it for me?"

    In the absence of that experience, explaining friendships of any gender is like explaining the color blue to a blind person...
