Friendships between women & men should be normalized and not seen as a romantic or sexual opportunity. Just sayin'...
Shoot, it's hard enough for genuine friendships between men to exist. Men tend to have "activity partners" and far more rarely genuine friends they share their feelings with.
They'll have folks they go drinking with, or watch/play games with, but how many friends do they have that would provide a comforting ear to talk to about the death of a parent or child?
How many would be emotional supports they they could cry in front of?
Many men just don't understand genuine friendship.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
