One of the longest running debates amongst men and women is the question of whether or not straight men and women1 can ever be just friends that is to say, can a friendship exist without sexual or romantic attraction ruining the relationship.

A recent article in Scientific American drew the conclusion that no, no they couldnt, based on a pair of studies of 88 couples in mixed-gender platonic relationships. The conclusions from the study found that amongst college students the male partners in the relationships were far more likely to be attracted to the women than vice-versa and that the men would also overestimate the level of attraction that the women felt for them.

Of course they can be good friends provided the limit of friendship is not crossed.

No, it is not true.
A man and woman could also be Brother-Sister, Son-Mother, Neighbours, Professional Partners (like in tennis mixed double game), Father-Daughter, Guru-Disciple .... etc. too
