In your opinion, can men and women be "just friends"?

Yep. I've got several male friends who I just call as friends, and they call me friends. It's possible.

Yep, no problem. I do think for some people it can become a problem, though.

Yep--I've always had more male friends (I was always the buddy) and only a couple I wanted more than friendship

no, for the most part, at least in my experience. at one time or another, one person will have feelings for the other person.

I've always had more guy friends too. I have a very close group of friends who I've been friends with since high school, more guys than girls, and Mark doesn't need to worry about them one bit (and he doesn't). I love my friends to death!!

And he has girl friends too that he has been friends with since they were kids, and I'm fine with that too. I think, if you can't trust your partner then why are you with them?

I think that is a very dangerous situation. Some people can do it just fine...for others it may become a problem. I think the best bet is when a couple is friends with another couple, but without opposite genders socializing without their spouses. I hope that made sense. For example, my best friend and her husband are both friends of my husband and I. We socialize from time to time. However, if my husband wanted to spend time with my bf without me or her husband, I would be very suspicious.
