    OP

    Yes, but very rarely. Our brains work differently is why.

    well females are taking over the government so you might as will get used to being led by the maternal instinct


    When the white man met the Indians they just assumed that the men were in control

    Yes, but only if the woman is ugly.

    Tell me about it! I'm a Brit and we have one as our prime minister; and even with Blair and Cameron in mind, the woman is the worst prime minister we've ever had. With a few historical exceptions they're too emotional and accommodating to have the cut and thrust needed for the job - I mean witness the ongoing Brexit farce, and how the Bureaucrats of Brussels all laugh behind her back every effing time she prostrates herself before them with the begging bowl. FFS and to remember we once had an Empire. How the mighty are fallen?

    I have an attractive female friend who I would doink in a second, but I don't need to doink her, and enjoy when we hang out.

    It can't last. At least not in its present form?

    That I 'would' doink her is a different conversation than if I were in love with her, which I'm not. If I were in love with her, or vice versa, that'd screw up the friendship. As it is, we get together for lunch every couple of weeks and it's cool. Not a big deal.

    Oh well then, you can't get up to any mischief in a restaurant. But I'm surprised you obviously have so much in common to sustain a long-term friendship though.

    I typically avoid having women as friends because I have a happy 27 year marriage to the most beautiful woman on the planet and don't want to screw it up. My wife trusts me for this reason and doesn't bat an eye if I take my dispatcher to lunch at times. I try to invite a second person as a "chaperone" to keep office gossip from taking hold, but sometimes it's just the 2 of us for lunch. She is young enough to be my daughter and not nearly as attractive as my wife, so that helps. She is married to a firefighter and has 2 kids, so neither of us have any incentive to cheat. I like to take care of my dispatcher because she makes my work schedule. Otherwise, I avoid being alone with a woman like the plague. The women I know are friends of my wife, wives of my friends, or family.

    I had many attractive female friends. One was a penthouse pet. Several actresses. Just has to be an understanding from the start, that no physicality, made clear by either party.

    She schedules jobs for about 20 field engineers over about 1/4 of the US. She handles incoming emergency calls and dispatches us to the site. We work on Uninterruptible Power Supplies at customer sites. She determines who gets the good or crappy jobs. I take her Starbucks when I drop by the office to grease the wheels.

    I googled this picture. It's a site under installation. It's an Eaton 9390 UPS and 2 strings of batteries.

    I had a chance to watch the videos in the OP. The first one says it all. Women don't understand just how hard wired sex is in the male brain and how we obsess about it. Some people control it or hide it very well and I'm sure women are this way to some extent, but it took years for my wife to realize this about men in general based on living with me and doing things with other couples. As our marriage has progressed and we get more comfortable with each other, the truth comes out more and more. She notices more quickly now if someone flirts with her.

    BS. I can be friends with any hot woman who wants to have sex. :D

    The all seem to be missing the FWB option. Lots of people have sex who are just friends. And plenty of married people are friends but don't have sex anymore.

    Yeah they can be friends but I doubt in the way that a man and man or woman and woman could be friends.

    My best friend ever since my early teens is a woman. But over our long friendship throughout the years there have been a number of times where we ended up being attracted to one another but nothing ever happened for one reason or another.

    The best friend that I have where I live now is a single woman also. We work together and have been good friends for years. We hang out pretty often and go to dinner on the weekends and there is some level of attraction between us that we both can tell but we are able to still remain just friends without being romantically involved.

    Going out with her isn't the same as going out with my guy buddies but we make it work.

    They can... if women accept that their male friends would like to have sex with them and if men accept that they probably won't get to have sex with their female friends.

    Women are evolutionarily programmed for monogamy. Men arent. There are rare exceptions both ways, and we can always suppress our programming, but its still there.

    I've had far more beautiful women teach me their languages.

    Tagalog, Korean, Cuban Spanish, Mexican Spanish, Hebrew, Greek, and most dialects of American English.

    Your gal can bring it on back to mecca.
