Friendships between man and woman, are one of the best, and I have a few male friends myself that I still have over for dinner. The thing none of us come to realize right away is that a deep friendship and love are basically similar and that's what makes for a good marriage. Women have the worst problem of all ... they want that wild, lustful romantic edge in their relationships, yet right before their eyes there is often someone that loves them more than most guys she goes out with. It's wise not to say "I love you" right off the bat to her, but say something like, "We've been good friends for a long while. What do you think if we try going on a real date as a normal couple?" They are either going to say something like "why ruin a good thing" or "that's a good idea. What made you think of it?" Play it slow and easy and don't let on you are truly in love with her, but are experimenting. This way you keep your dignity in tact as well as not losing a good friend.

If you and your friend should be having sexual relations, then this is not friendship at all, but getting the fringe benefits of a loving relationship. Friends just share their thoughts and dreams for the future.

Its hard question, and one that I've had to decide a few times. Usually, if I'm in doubt, I choose to stay friends. My female friends have been there with me for years, and probably will be for many years to come. On the occasions when I've switched to dating, we've had a good time for a few months, then broke up, and then its over and they are usually out of my life at that point. The only situation I would ever risk losing a friendship for a romantic relationship is if I knew her really well and thought that there was a very significant chance she could be the love of my life. And even then I would be hesitant.

* You said 'like' which could mean friendship or you are interested in him for a possible romantic relationship. Since you know he is gay or at least bisexual and assuming you are straight, then the relationship would probably not work out. One also has to be extremely careful of sexually transmitted diseases. If you are sure he is gay or bisexual it's best to keep a good friendship going and don't get romantically involved.

He doesn't have to be. Age doesn't matter as long as the age gape isn't huge.

It means that at present she wants to maintan a friendship which is an important relationship. It means that she has set limits on the relationship. However, for now opens the possibility for a possible deeper relationship. Fiendships are a way for people to get to know each other more freely without expectations.

Healthy RelationshipI think the best way to have a healthy relationship with a member of the opposite sex is by having a solid friendship with the person. If you constantly try to improve the friendship you have with the person then you will always have a good thing no matter whether any romantic feeling come or fade. Once you have a good solid friendship you should always ask yourself "What can I honestly do to preserve the friendship I have?"Sometimes the best thing for the friendship isn't always what you desire. Sometimes this means giving up the romantic aspects in the relationship. Even if you have to do that you should be able to keep the person you love and respect in your life as an asset.In addition, there has to be mutual respect, which would certainly be present if you start out with friendship first. Without mutual respect, the relationship will be miserable, especially if the man has no respect for the woman.I would also add to be true to yourself. That doesn't mean to be selfish. It means that if your heart is telling you to do something or to act a certain way, don't allow the other person to stop you. If the other person doesn't like it, let them find someone else and you find someone who will care enough about you that they will understand and support you in doing those things that are important to you.There's more, but those are probably the most important. ~Deb~___________________________________________________I very much so agree with the respect aspect as well. (Thank you Deb) Respect means so much in preserving the relationship and keeping it healthy for a long time.I think I'll add good communication as well. This one speaks for itself.~Julie~

A husband can have a friendly relationship with a woman long distance by texting. It depends on what type or relationship he has with his wife on whether it's considered cheating. If he has nothing to hide, there is no reason to keep it from her.

When a man says he wants a woman to have his kids, this can either be a romantic gesture by a loving man in a relationship with the woman he loves or a somewhat tasteless pick up line. If a woman isn't sure which, chances are, it is the second option.

He no longer wishes to be in a romantic relationship with you, or he doesn't want to start one, but he doesn't want you to think he's an a**hole.

ANSWER: It depends on what type of friendship they have. As long as he knows that his wife know this other woman, that will be fine. But if this married man never mention to his wife about his friendship towards the other woman, that will be a no no

There is no answer to that. No guy "normally" wants anything. Some want sex, some want a relationship, some want friendship, some want nothing.

A married person can love another woman or man. Marriage and love are not mutually exclusive. Answer 2: it all depends on whether that love is a friendship or romantic love we are talking about. Do you know the difference? . Do you have the same love for the person as your husband? Friends will respect friendship boundaries. If a married man becomes too familiar, flirty and sexually suggestive with this other woman then you have adultery in the making. Be careful, its been known to happen.

Yes. i have done it as a woman. Sometimes it's hard to mix friendship and love, especially if the love the woman feels is not mutually shared. So yes, if the woman fears that she is tempted ot have a relationship with a man, she will try to break contact with him to save herself the heartache that come with being friends, while she has feelings.

A woman could be ravishing. A woman could be romantic.

Some do, some don't. If the relationship works, then the size of the tool isn't that important.

Romantic love does not always mean that the love is true. Some men will try to be romantic to simply get a woman in bed. Of course there are those men in the world that are romantic and there love is true.

This is very personal and varies from woman to woman. Respect, understanding, friendship and love are just some possibilities.
