Can men and women really be just friends or riding buddies? Friendship

    I disagree, doesn't mean its right or wrong. I have been riding with a buddy for two years, yes I had/have feelings for him but we have never crossed the line. The subject was approached by him but I know who I am and I know who he is and it would have messed with the relationship. I said no and told him why and that was the end of that although if things were diffenent I wouldn't have said no. None of the other guys I ride with have approached the subject nor have I. Many are married, some are younger, some there is no attraction other than respect for each other and they all do respect me. Dang it!!!

    Um , I was just reading my sweety's input here and I am going to be politically incorrect and honest. Two of my less endearing traits .
    Can a man be just friends with a woman . Yes , but only if there is NO physical attraction . I can be friends with a heavy woman or and older woman or an unattractive woman and the friendship will be true , it is the beautiful ones you can't just be friends with . Deep down guys are just biding thier time and waiting for that special opportunity .

    Just my humble opinion

    NO Only if you were Friends with that person growing up!
    My Personal Opinion if there is someone you always like to ride with or Pal around with- -
    10-1 you have an attraction for them and sooner or later the (2) of you will get curious and cross that line! Jade

    Silver,
    Know what you mean about the age thing, I'm 7 years older than my boyfriend. It use to bother me, until I paid attention to the fact that his maturity level was right there with mine! LOL After that, no bother!
    Now about the friends thing: I have to agree with everyone,TRUE FRIENDS..ROCK!But I have always kept my male friends just that....friends only. I'm not good at crossing the line & remaining "just friends" after. I guess I'm a typical female..my heart tends to get involved & that screws up everything!!
    Also, I remember when I first got divorced....that first time relationship....difficult. Dumba$$ me....just got my wings & here I was wanting to get them clipped. DUH.
    But my male friends were there to give me advise & kid me for being so "female"! LOL
    If this guy is your saving grace right now.....just go with it. Let him be your friend. Play it my ear & ENJOY YOUR LIFE & FREEDOM!! BTW....I agree with everyone too re: I hope I look as good as you when I'm your age. I'm not far behind ya though. So let all these compliments boost your ego & self confidence. We women can be very critical of each other..but on the other hand, we can be honest too.

    I seem to have found a riding companion that is interested in just that. He's a doll. We go to rides and functions, he's a gentleman, calls when he says, etc. We always laugh and have a good time. He is MC mech. I had tires put on my bike when I ran into him(I had seen him before)when I was married, but now I'm divorced. I asked him if he was married, he said "no", I asked him if he wanted to go riding sometime, he said "yes". We met, talked more, he gave me a bunch of flyers with events and wanted to go the next day. He just hasn't displayed much affection. So far, I'm willing to let it go because it's better to get to know someone. When I see him, I just want to ride everywhere! I told him I had to start school and couldn't see him so much. He seemed bummed out, and said he would look for events around the holidays that we could go to. He is tall, dark hair, beard, handsome. Could it be that we just get along and he just wants to ride? He is also 13 yrs. my jr. That kinda bothers me, but he has never asked my age. So hey guys, what's up? I'm thinking I should just enjoy his company and let the rest go. He is a saving grace right now in my life.

    I understand what you say!
    One of this friend of mine (she name's Barbara) ride always with me!!! She is 15 years old than me, but it's not a problem...
    We go everywhere here in Italy...and sometimes we meet in the evening too.
    I love her, but she's just a friend...a GOOD friend!
