About a week ago, my friend Melissa kept asking the same question to all of us. “Do you think men and women can be just friends? Even if that person were naked, you wouldn’t want to sleep with your friend?” At first, I didn’t know how to respond to such a vague question.
Sure some women have guy friends to talk to and they might even life some weighs at the gym every now and then or grab a cup of joe. Those might be the same people that know there isn’t a chance in hell they will ever hook up beyond the friendship level. Take my brother for example; I don’t know a single girl in his life because none of those girls are his friends. I have the feeling he might have some prospects but for now, nothing too exciting coming from his end. He’ll never be the guy to only have a girl as a friend, only girlfriends. I don’t see that’s his style, anyhow. See the point?
Now, there are only two sides to this; the other being that you’re definitely hooking up and are going to be in a relationship (whether it’s Facebook official or not). Everyone can tell, even when it’s not mentioned, it’s there. Sometimes, the relationship gets complicated between the two sexes. One person sees the relationship differently than the other, one person isn’t as committed as the other would like, one person thought you two were an item but really, it’s all in your head. In the end, someone always get hurt. I should know, this has happened to me one too many times.
Bottom line to all of this is that, relationships between men and women must be a one way street, never both ways. If the lines were blurred, the two of you would hate each other for similar or different reasons. I appreciate my guy friends for putting up with my crazy self and I wouldn’t want to do anything to mess up that chemistry.

A poem inspired by this post. I hope it’s not too obvious but it’s been on my mind lately and I hope it’s good. Critique and as always please send me feedback.
Men and Women Can Never Be Equal
I understand that you wish we never did it,
but the facts are in the air and whether you agree or not–
we were horny and I know you wanted all of it. This is
the reason why men can’t be friends with women.
Call it shallow, worse than the well from The Ring,
I won’t disagree with that reaction, but the women
reading this should knowledge this little known trivia.
Look up to the first guy you notice,
does he see you? Staring at your eyes
before quickly darting them away from you?
That distinct look is a sign that he’s interested and
wants to sleep with anyone with a big of tits as her glasses.
If that particular gentleman had the facial features
of a kick-in donkey, the chances of a romantic gesture
would be more likely than a zombie apocalypse.
So those are the basic responses from each opposing side.
Now, what it these actions turned into reactions towards that person
the transpiration going on is so quint and simple,
why not go for it?
The air of facts is foggy, smacking you in the face
what’s been in front of you,
women are crazy,
men are confusing.
