A Woman and a Woman: Friends-can-be?

It is quite a common question if men and women can be friends. I am not going to comment on this; as I have been unlucky to end up falling in love with my best male friends and having them all gone, I am more eager to contemplate on friendship between two women. There are quite contradictory points of view on this matter, and though these are mostly men who say such friendship is impossible, most women agree it is harder for females to keep friendly relations up.

You may have great times together when everything is fine – go out for a glass of wine after work, discuss all the latest fashion trends, go shopping or simply gossip, encourage and support each other through tough time, share advice and life experience and just feel comfortable together, but in case you have to compete for something, all this friendliness and sincerity are instantly gone.

Harvey believes that if you love your husband, support him, and are loyal to him, sex is just what comes naturally. And of course he is right. He also says that if man doesn’t build his career, he will not be able to focus on your relationship. And I agree – for men career comes first: money and a place to live are the basic needs of any person, and of course a man can’t focus on you / wedding / marriage / kids if he didn’t build a career yet. And in this case he needs your support.
