The boy buddy
Can men and women be just friends?
I think it’s possible if it’s a genuine friendship, chaste and has no hidden agendas.
But what if one party declares they have feelings, and the other doesn’t want to reciprocate?
They care for them, perhaps even love them, but just not in that way.
Can a friendship ever recover from such an admission? If one party makes it clear that there can be nothing more, can you really just switch off and put away those feelings?
Ignorance really is bliss.
