Throughout a person's life span friendship is important, it's the aspect of enduring affection, esteem, intimacy, and trust between different people.

True friendship is accepting each other unconditionally, helping each other grow, mutual support in tough times, and increasing one's ability to love themselves.


Having friends of all sexes and genders enriches your life and helps you become a more well-rounded person.


Men and women live, work, and play side-by-side, but can they really be friends without being romantically interested in each other.? Leaving out family relations.

In most friendships men tend to be attracted to the woman sexually when she just wants to be  friends leading to the friendship breaking.

Its a similar case in women but  rarely , everyone has a different opinion on this matter.


In an Instagram post by nairobi_gossip_club   some men and women commented on the matter.

A large number of men seem to accept finding it hard to be just friends with a woman and want them romantically.



Male comments:

bravinyuri  "A man can only be friends with a woman if and only if; (I) the woman in question is the sister, mother, or wife.

ii) the woman in question has set a very solid boundary which more than often will always be challenged until the man realizes nothing is ever going to go down.

The disadvantage of this situation is if the man involved is not wise, he will always be exploited .

The reason, men dislike making female friends is because feminine energy drains masculine energy. When a man has many female friends, observe his behavior. Most likely to behave like a woman too."Bravin wrote.
