Now there is this longstanding cultural agreement that real friendship between men and women cannot exist because of the sexual tension between the sexes. This is a view that actually comes from an earlier ere when men and women's roles were far more restricted and the only opportunity for them to meet was for romantic purposes. Under those circumstances of course it was very very difficult for men and women to develop real friendships based on their interests because women were stuck at home tending the babies and tending the household while men were out working. However, today's society is very different from this and there's plenty of opportunity for men and women to come together based on mutual interests, maybe in sports, maybe in arts, maybe in politics, maybe as a friend or a co-worker from your workplace or somebody that you met at school. There's no such limitation anymore about the roles of men and women. So there is far more opportunity for men and women to get together and share interests and develop genuine friendships. There will always be the possibility of sexual tension between any two people who might be sexually attracted to each other. But it need not cause an issue case of real friendship between men and women.
