“Men and women can be just friends!”
Name: Karanvir Bohra Day Job: TV Host & Actor Twitter: @RealKVB “It’s the oldest cliché in the book—men and women can’t be just friends! Of course they can, and in modern relationships where couples believe in having their own space and friends, that’s exactly what’s happening. In my own relationship, I have a group of friends, which includes both men and women, and so does my wife, Teejay.
The truth is, just because a man talks to a woman, it’s wrong to assume he ‘likes’ her or is attracted to her. Today, men and women work together, work out together, and socialize together in completely platonic ways. And since they share so many common interests, friendship is no longer about gender, but more to do with how well you connect with someone.
Which brings me to a very important result: sometimes, when a man says he is good friends with a woman who is not his lover, he actually means it!
That said, there are ways to handle friendships with the opposite sex. For one, you should let your partner know that their place in your life is sacrosanct and irreplaceable. And if there ever comes a point where feelings start to develop, I’d suggest you be upfront about the situation. I believe it’s always better to say what’s on your mind, than let confusion enter a relationship.”
