Yes they can. I've had male friends (2 of them) since high school so that makes our friendship over 40 years. I also have other male friends that come for dinner and my husband has some female friends that we also invite over. Usually when young love and friendship can mesh. Good marriages are based on (of course physical attraction) friends first and falling in love. Yes. But you never know if it's going to turn into something else. Most male friends become attracted to their female friends over a period of time. Or sometimes, they only become your friend to try to get a farther relashonship with you.

Friends are friends and if you like this girl then it does not matter if this girl is an ex of your other friend, but be sure to let your other friend know you are seeing this girl and why. When you are with the ex girl try not to discuss the relationship she had with the other friend and just enjoy each other.
