Science Confirms Men and Women Can’t Be “Just Friends”
Harry was right! Sally, not so much. Science has confirmed that there is almost always an attraction between male and female friends– and the most common result is dissatisfaction with current romantic partners.
The lead researcher of a study believes that platonic relationships are a relatively new concept in the history of humanity, so men are still controlled by their mating instincts.
The research results from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire showed that men more frequently admitted attraction to their female friends while also overestimating their friend’s romantic feelings toward them.
In your experience, can men and women co-exist without attraction getting in the way?
