Guys and Girls Can’t Be Friends

Harry from “When Harry Met Sally” said it best.

Harry Burns: You realize of course that we could never be friends.
Sally Albright: Why not?
Harry Burns: What I’m saying is – and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form – is that men and women can’t be friends because the sex part always gets in the way.
Sally Albright: That’s not true. I have a number of men friends and there is no sex involved.
Harry Burns: No you don’t.
Sally Albright: Yes I do.
Harry Burns: No you don’t.
Sally Albright: Yes I do.
Harry Burns: You only think you do.
Sally Albright: You say I’m having sex with these men without my knowledge?
Harry Burns: No, what I’m saying is they all WANT to have sex with you.
Sally Albright: They do not.
Harry Burns: Do too.
Sally Albright: They do not.
Harry Burns: Do too.
Sally Albright: How do you know?
Harry Burns: Because no man can be friends with a woman that he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her.
Sally Albright: So, you’re saying that a man can be friends with a woman he finds unattractive?
Harry Burns: No. You pretty much want to nail ’em too.
Sally Albright: What if THEY don’t want to have sex with YOU?
Harry Burns: Doesn’t matter because the sex thing is already out there so the friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story.
Sally Albright: Well, I guess we’re not going to be friends then.
Harry Burns: I guess not.

    I think it’s somewhere inbetween. The sex ‘issue’ will probably always be there on some level, but it doesn’t have to doom the friendship.

    More importantly, xkcd is awesome, that film is great, and long live confusing relationships between genders.

    I THINK SEX IS WAY OVER RATED 2 PEOPLE TOGETHER THINK THEY GOTTA HAVE SEX…..
    SEX IS THE LAST THING ON MY MIND ..I WANNA GO OUT HAVE FUN NOT WORRY ABOUT SEX ………TO ME SEX IS WHEN U MEET SOME ONE YOU LIKE AND GO OUT DATE SHARE LIFE TOGETHER AND CRY TOGETHER …….ME I AM NOT ATRACTED TO THE BODY OF A WOMAN YEA I THINK WOMEN IS PRETTY GOT GOOD LOOKING BODYS BUT I AM I GUESS OLD SCHOOL …WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT WE WILL KNOW ITS TIME TO MAKE LOVE NOT JUST HAVE SEX SEX IS A THREE LETTER WORD …TO ME HAVING SEX NOT NOTHING ……….,MAKING LOVE TO A WOMAN IS PRICELESS….THEN U CAN SAY WOW THAT WAS WONDERFULL…..NOW THATS WHY I KNOW I CAN BE FRIENDS WITH WOMEN CAUSE I DONT THINK OF SEX CAUSE I BECOME FRIENDS FIRST THEN IF IT TURNS OUT TO BE MORE I WILL KNOW …BUT I GUESS EVERYBODY NOT LIKE ME …

  5. When Harry Met Sally is my favorite movie. I do think the sex gets in the way with most hetero friendships between a man and a woman. Someone always has some thought of the other at some point. BUT it isn’t impossible.
