Can a guy and gal really be friends?
Here's the situation, a guy I know is 25 Catholic (and maybe not the most devout Catholic, but okay, has faith in his heart and goes to Mass every Sunday). But he has never had a girlfriend.
He met a woman in class last year who has been married maybe 5 years. She got married in the Catholic church. She is 30, but looks younger. Her husband is in the military and often away.
Anyway, they go out to eat sometimes, just as friends. Maybe study together sometimes too (even though they don't have the same classes).
I don't know, I just don't like this situation, the guy I know says they are just friends and maybe that is truly the case. But I keep telling him to be careful and you never know when you may get blind-sighted and the feelings change to something more.
I guess it bothers me because I have seen this situation so many times with family, friends, and co-workers, where something starts out as just a friendship, but then ends up as something more.
They don't see each other often nowadays, maybe twice a month from what I know. But I think they do talk a lot more thru Facebook.
I told him to be honest with himself and his heart and if he even thinks there is a possibility of an attraction, then he should not see her anymore. I also told him, that no matters what happens, she will always be married to her husband because they were married thru the Catholic church.
