    Yes we can but need to know ourselves first and watch the signals. To feel attracted is natural for the opposite gender but everything is in our mind and how we take control over our thoughts. It feels not good if a business contact should think I was more interested of them than the business. I have also seen some people who are using their gender for getting business and it goes both ways.

  2. Who Ami says

    I think men and woman can be friends, if both are cautious and their spouses are aware.

    Maybe I got distracted during the show, but Corey’s answer that no men and women couldn’t be friends came through pretty strongly, but I didn’t here a real strong answer one way or the other from Gina although it was mentioned that you disagree. Would have loved to hear more of her thoughts.

    A man named Dan Brennan has done a lot of thinking and blogging on this whole topic-and wrote a book “Sacred Unions, Sacred Passions”. I have followed his blog alot at times but haven’t read his book.

    Here is a link to a portion of his blog that relates to this subject. I think there are more tags that go even deeper. http://danbrennan.typepad.com/the_sacred_friendships_pr/

    I think one of you mentioned that it partly depends what the definition of friend is- and that it can have many definitions- so that may play a role in how you answer the question.

    Gina and Corey both make good points. IMO, Men MAY only be friends with women who have less inner and outer beauty than their wives. Women who are overweight, selfish and or rude are not a temptation for most men. They are safe friends. Like wise the same concept MAY apply for women.

    Honestly, this was sort of a tougher topic for me. The men that are in my life are so much like family to me that the idea of kissing them or making out or getting naked and having sex with them is as revolting as the idea of doing that with my own son!
    But then again, like Don just said, none of these guys have physical or inner qualities that make me find them sexually attractive either.
    When I feel that kind of energy with someone I RUN the other way. I’m still thinking about this show….
    The definition of “friend” is indeed a big piece of this conversation.
    Thanks so much for listening and sharing your thoughts.
