“We’re just friends.” Whenever I hear this statement it leaves me looking like Mr Bean at his last attempt to smile. Not necessary because I don’t believe it can be true, and not even because I remember ambiguously claiming it myself only several months ago, while I must admit it was not exactly true. As we all know well, exceptions are like love - 'always in the air'. We hear many cases, stories, glories about it, but there is always a big room for debate – can men and women be ‘just friends’?
Surely, being too categorical and flat about close friendships between opposite sexes is not ideal for a greater analysis about this issue. However, having a strong belief from personal experiences that it’s not possible for men and women to be just friends because of sexual reasons as well as a dozen of people and psychology lecturer’s opinions combined, this feature challenges and unravels that matter from its ground.
