"Relationship expert Judy James says the male/female friendship is probably rarer than we imagine.Well, I say fictional characters. That sounds fairly accurate to me too. Ahem.
"A lot of men and women are clearly friends, but often one of them will be harbouring some form of attraction for the other.
"It will probably never be consummated, as they would not want to jeopardise the friendship, but I'd say in about 50% of male/female friendships one of them secretly fancies the other.
"You see friends of the opposite sex often admitting that when they reconnect years later on Facebook or Friends Reunited," she says."
Actually this quote from Jason Reitman/Diablo Cody's Young Adult is even more appropriate: "Guys like me are born loving women like you."
