Can a Guy and Girl Be Close Friends without Dating or Romance?

ADs (do your own research):

I have a very close male friend. We are not dating and we haven’t really done anything romantic although we have told each other almost everything about ourselves and we have spent a lot of time together gisting and generally having good times.

I just like him as a friend but I am not sexually attracted to him.

He actually hasn’t ever asked me out but sometimes he sends me some odd text messages talking about how much he cares for me and how much our friendship means to him and all that.

Also he has dated and broken up with about five girls since I knew him.

I see him as just a normal friend, more like a brother but I am beginning to suspect that he sees me as more than a friend because he gets angry when he sees me talking with other guys and he always tries to act over-protective.


It became so annoying that one day I had to ask him what his problem was. When I tried talking to him about this attitude of his, he got angry and started acting funny. Now we are not on talking terms because I told him to respect himself and give me some space.

He is my very good friend and I like him because he’s a nice guy and I don’t want to lose his friendship.

But I don’t want to be his girlfriend either. What should I do?

To some it’s possible, but to most, it isn’t
To me, it isn’t possible 🤗
It seems the guy has feelings for you
Just ask him if he feels differently towards you, if he says he does, tell him you see him as a brother, nothing more
But if he insists he doesn’t want to just be friends, then you have to end the friendship, cause it might get ugly.


Dated and broken up with 5 girls? He should continue to be your friend abeg
