I think it's impossible. Men can't be absolutely sincere with women and women can't be sincere with men. They are really from different planets. I may be mistaken.
i think people express notions to others they think will come back in their favor, since no one like rejections and both men and women are rejecting each other more these days. people dont let thier true feeling be known theses days...
if boundaries are set between the two and both men and women have clear understanding of what can and cannot happen between the two then freindship can grow great respect on both parties. lesia:why do you feel they cant be freinds?
alot of women say this more than men. i think men and women can be freinds but the two need to be clear of where the relationship wont go. for example the guy who thinks if he waits for the right moment he can go from freind to more than freinds.
all is all, men and women can not be friends. : D
