Decide if the feelings are mutual

If you have feelings for one of your guy friends, it’s likely that you want to go to that next step with him. However, you’ll have to somehow, without making it awkward, find out if the emotions are mutual. Look for signs that he has feelings for you and if none are there, he may just be better off as a friend. The emotions have to be mutual from the start or else the relationship is doomed.

    This article is reason #13232143324 on why I say straight women and men cannot be friends. Acquaintances maybe, friends hell no!

      -signed, all women with no male friends.

      Just because you haven’t figured out how to maintain functional opposite sex friendships doesn’t mean it’s not possible.

        I have male friends, they are family and gay. You are either the ugliest woman on the planet or lying to yourself if you think your male friends started out wanting to be your platonic friend. Give me a freakin break!

          I don’t know if mac is ugly, but I agree with most of your statement. It could be an age thing not an ugly thing :/

            lol. I was being dramatic for effect. I wasn’t tryna throw Mac’s looks under the bus. My point is 99.9999999 percent of your straight male “friends” got put into the friend bucket by you. If given a chance they would beat it like a drum.

          And the story changes. So now only ugly women can have straight guy friends? lol

            That was hyperbole or was that lost on you?
