Is it ever possible to have JUST a guy friend?

No. Seriously, I’ve tried, but with no success. Ever. Well, not yet. Okay, so there might be some circumstances that it is possible but 99.9% of the time… it’s not.
I don’t know exactly why, but the answer is mostly just no. However, sometimes the world does work in weird ways… and it all works out having a guy as just a friend.
It is rarely okay to be friends with your boyfriend’s friends… That just doesn’t work out in most cases.
Guys that you think are just friends are never really just friends. Okay, unless they are homosexual, then they probably won’t ever be into you that way so you’re safe.
When I was with my last boyfriend, his roommate was someone that had totally creeped on me. Did you think that I could stay with my boyfriend and go on being his roommate’s friend? Umm, no. Totally could never get over the fact that he creeped on me over a period of 2 months prior to our relationship.
I have also had two instances where right after breaking up with my ex, his friends came forward. People who I thought were my friends and were telling me how I didn’t deserve my ex and should be with them… hahaha. Not much more to say about that.
Another guy that I thought was just a friend wasn’t. We had hung out for years and had nice coffee conversations… Once I broke up with my boyfriend, he admitted the feelings that he had towards me, and FAILED AT BEING JUST FRIENDS.
I don’t know what it is. I think these guys are just my friends, and then I see them out at the bar or something and they go ahead and grab my ass to say hi….?
Another guy who used to talk to me, came to me for advice and that I went to for advice…now I thought to myself that we have this great relationship (friendship kind) going on; I’m single and he has a girlfriend. All of a sudden, one day he gets in a fight with his girlfriend… Calls me… For advice you’re thinking… um, no. He asks to come over because he has nowhere to sleep…hmmm. Seriously he had like five male friends closer to his house… FAIL AGAIN. (Do not believe he wanted to sleep at my house just as friends!)
I just don’t think it’s possible. No way. I don’t even know what more to say. Just don’t try it. Not worth it. Lol. Be friends, but seriously, you will never have a straight guy friend just as close to you as a female friend. If they get too close, somewhere down the line they will try to make their move… Don’t agree with me? PROVE ME WRONG!
