Men easily develop a desire for sex and/or a relationship with moderately attractive female friends, it’s just a natural progression. In addition, male friendships and female friendships are often very different on a closeness level. When I was in college (the age this sort of thing happened the most), it was very common for me, a woman, to spend the night in a close female friend’s dorm room talking deeply and openly about the most intimate details of our lives. Men do NOT behave this way with their male friends, and male friendships tend to consist of more conversation about mutual interests like movies, television, games, sports, music, etc, than about personal matters. Speaking openly about your life in that way is reserved for someone you feel a deep bond with: a girlfriend.
Then I’d have female friends who would try and treat their male friends like their female friends. Inviting them to their dorm rooms, taking long walks at midnight, having deep discussions about personal matters. Then the guy expresses his desire for a relationship, and the girl was shocked! All you want is sex?! I thought we had a close friendship!
Male and female friendships don’t work the same way. Anytime I tried to develop a friendship with a guy in the same way I have one with a girl the guy developed feelings for me. I learned that this isn’t because guys are all sexist jerks, but because what I think of as a “close friendship” to them only really happens in a romantic context, especially with an attractive woman. Whether it’s cultural or biological doesn’t matter, that’s just the way it is.
As such I’ve learned that my friendships with guys just have to be different than the ones with girls. With a girl I can call her up or invite her over when my partners out of town to rant about a relationship or family problem, can discuss the details of long-gone relationships, bits of my sex life, and the intricacies of navigating life, and to me that is a close friendship. With a guy friend I’ll hang out and invite him to group outings, talk about work, books I’ve read, world news…and that’s nice and all, but I’d never consider it a close friendship. But they don’t feel insulted, they act as if we are close, and they don’t declare their undying love for me!
It’s kinda depressing that Poe’s law is everywhere on this site. Radical SJWs have gone so far that you have to go through their entire blog to evaluate whether they’re legit or not. Because what they are saying is so close to satire.
