What are your thoughts on male-female friendships when one person is clearly attracted to the other?
Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted something more with a woman who wasn’t interested and decided to remain friends anyway? What about a woman who wanted something with you that you weren’t interested in?
This has come up a few times in my life – sometimes when I decided to continue the friendship, other times when I didn’t. When it’s the latter, it’s really difficult to admit a brutal truth like “I don’t want to be friends if we aren’t having sex” and not wonder if you aren’t a fucking terrible human being for feeling that.
Lastly, though I imagine it’s more rare, have any of your female friends confided in you that they were the ones who wanted to pursue things with a friend who was uninterested? Maybe it happens more than I think.
