One of the blogs that I read faithfully talked about this topic a while back, and the amount of passionate answers that showed up in black and white intrigued me. Everybody seemed to know the answer. Case closed. And yet, not all of the answers were the same. Funny how that seems to happen.

Here's the thing, in my business I have tons of different kinds of friends. Male and female, gay and straight, "ethnic" and white-bread American, religious and non...I truly enjoy the relationships that I experience with each person; I learn from them and have grown from them.
Plus, a lot of them are just amazing amounts of fun. Not to mention kind, hilarious, and compassionate, to name a few other attributes.
Anyway, the hot debate was (and might always be) this:
Can men and women be friends?
Or do you think the issues of physical attraction, emotional closeness, etc. always get in the way? I am very interested in hearing your opinions on this, so please don't be shy. Also, if you have a system that you have established for setting up and keeping boundaries, feel free to share.
I value your thoughts...
