My best friend is a guy and I’ve been very fortunate that I adore his wife and he and my husband have hit it off as well! There has never, nor will there ever be anything other than friendship between he and I and our spouses are perfectly comfortable with that!

Yes, but it depends. At this age, I think you have to get all your cards out on the table early on, if you’re in a serious relationship they need to know so they don’t see you as a potential mate. Sounds funny, but true.
I’m in college and I had to find this out the hard way. A couple years ago, a good friend from middle school and I re-met, and I guess he assumed I was single. I wasn’t. He basically thought we were dating, and I literally had to break up with him after a couple months, even though we weren’t together. We can’t even be friends anymore because he was very romantically invested.
Fast forward to this year, I met a guy through the place I volunteer at. As we talked, I said something about my boyfriend. I felt better pointing it out, just in case. A couple weeks later, I met his girlfriend. Turns out she’s a volunteer also. Hehe.

I agree with waHine777. I have opposite sex gender friends and some of which I won’t drop for anybody. Thsee guy friends have been friends since high school and junior college with the exception of one from middle school. But I agree that men and women shouldn’t be friends with their exes unless they are the mother or father of your child. but if men and women aren’t exes then it’s ok to be friends with both genders as they apply.
