    No, men and women can never be just friends. One will always want something from the other, be it sexual or romantic. What's going to happen when you both get drunk and one of you makes a move on the other? AWKWARD if it's rejected, even more if it's regretted the next day.

    I'm not a psychologist, and my advice is based on years of alcohol dependency. In fact, my life is an entire series of bad decisions. Either way, b@ng him, get it out of your system, and see where it goes. You don't have to commit to a relationship with the guy. Bump the uglies, and go from there. He either stays or goes based on what happens after you kill the elephant in the room.

    I suspect most of commenters here are right -- most guys want more than a platonic relationship. So the question is -- what do you want? 'Cause in these situations it's the woman who decides where the relationship goes.

    Also, you're both grown-ups. Did it ever occur to you to simply discuss this with him?

    Hey Shaken,

    Ever have a feeling (looking at post above) that sometimes men never listen when we explain things?

    Your ex... Did you marry him because of what he was and hoping he wouldn't change or because of what you saw as a possibility of what he could become? Don't answer that, rhetorical question.

    Can you be just friends? Theoretically yes you can, especially if he refers to you as "like a sister to me." Otherwise, if he isn't thinking about it now there's a significant chance he will in the (near?) future as it sounds like he's looking for either just a rebound before moving on or a rebound that's also "something better then before." And you sound like you're not ready for either. Tell him that last bit at least.

    I'll confess that occasionally I'll comment without having read every previous post. So which post did I miss?

    and even us a little, but is hoping our comments will boost her optimism, that he really does dig her...in a few months she'll post again saying how this has developed into a relationship..:smlove2:

    Her head says "I'm not ready for romance right now"...but she is feeling all giggly with him.
    Well seeing as my head is saying I am not ready for romance I think I will listen to it. As most of you guys know my marriage was not great and you only know the top of layer of what was going on. Hell I am still finding out shit he pulled. I don't trust so easily anymore. Which is why I like the friendship I have with this guy. I don't have to worry about getting stomped on.
