It is a subject, a question, that often comes up in conversation: Can a man and a woman really be "just friends?" Before you answer this in your own mind, be reminded that there is a significant qualifier here: "just." As in "only" friends. No sex, no lust, no passion, no secret dreams and desires: just friends.
Friendships come in all sizes, shapes and complexities, but nothing confuses this important life relationship as much as sex. A man and woman can indeed be just friends, but friends don't (or shouldn't) express themselves through sex. Simplify your life by learning to separate the two.
I believe that as you grow more as a person (mainly spiritually) you learn that the most important thing in life is compassion and love... we're not animals... we are no longer controlled by our hormones... although they still make life very hard!
