  • To answer your question - yes, women can be friends with a man without making it about sex or a relationship. I would know, as I have been the female friend to many guys. Unfortunately, I've found that some women can't get over their jealousy issues, and tend to believe that because they think their man is hot, that everyone else does. They look at any female friend as a threat, which is unfair. 

    For example, when I was in high school I had a very good male friend. He was my neighbor and so we kind of grew up together. I never had any non-platonic feelings for this guy. He started dating a girl who didn't go to our school, and she hated that we were friends. She would go as far as to scream at him over the phone if we were both in a group of people hanging out. He held off for a couple of years but eventually I was cut out of his life due to the jealousy of his girlfriend. I absolutely hate people like that.

     I think that if the person you are dating truly loves you, they won't cheat on you. Having friends of the opposite sex is totally normal, and honestly it's a bit crazy to believe that everyone "wants (your) man."
