1. Perception

friendship, Kajol, Karan JoharReality check people!!! There’s no one-way answer to all this. It all depends on the psychology of a person. Friendship definitely cannot be judged on the basis of sex. Some of the greatest pioneers of friendship are given by a girl and a guy. Trust me when I say this, it all depends on the way you take this relationship. I am sure you do have opposite sex friends. Have u fallen for each one of them?

2. Reciprocation

Suppose a girl and a guy become friends. And one of them starts developing feelings. Now, can we help that? Who knows you might have gone through the same turmoil, and just may have lost a friend? Or should I say you lost the chance to convey your feelings? Developing feeling for someone is very genuine. You just can’t stop that. Likewise, if the feeling is not reciprocated, ouch…it kills you instantly. Of course, I am talking about heartache. One sided feelings hurt the most.

3. Demarcation

But, what if we’re talking about a girl and a guy, who genuinely have the feelings of being friends only? Then the people start bugging you. You get all sorts of questions like “are you guys dating?” if not then, “you guys should date”. It’s a kind of peer pressure that hangs over those two people, which makes them feel uncomfortable. Don’t you think these unnecessary questions hamper their friendship? Maybe it’s just the right time to let it go. Live and let live.

4. Genuinity

Now this one’s quite popular. So, check this one out. Sometimes that caring and consoling nature are misunderstood. It gets mixed up with feelings. Feelings, which tend to get bigger than friendship. These are just the misguided ones. Maybe the shoulder which he/she offered was just for friendship’s sake and not anything more than that. Those sudden late night phone calls, those texts saying “I miss you”, all of a sudden these turn into some kind of secret signs!! Even if it’s not!!

5. Insecurity

Ahhaa!! This one’s going to be killer. Suppose your best friend suddenly starts dating someone or may be spending more time with someone else. That pang of jealousy you are feeling, what is it? Love? Infatuation? Like? Fellas!! You start feeling that the things are falling apart. What was supposedly only yours is now being shared by someone else? It’s not necessary that what you are feeling is all the latter things. You are just jealous because you are not the only important person in his/her life. C’mon it’s highly normal!!

Guys!! It’s all in that big head of yours. Don’t confuse yourself with so many questions and unanswered ones of course. It’s you, who have to choose what you want to do. A girl and a guy can be good friends, depends on how you feel about the other person or vice versa. There is no perfect answer to it, and there never will be.
