Holy damn, for all men out there I hope none of them will ever be either your platonic friend or mff threesome stories lover. This is pathetic. Certainly it doesn't count as "all the evidence. Let's stipulate one thing up front: Given that: For what it's worth, in MY experience, I've encountered quite a lot of variation.
I've known more than one woman who does Single ladies for platonic friendship treat male friends as presumptively platonic, and is open to a wide range of possibilities. Likewise, I've known plenty of guys who only have eyes for one woman and would never dream of making a romantic move on anyone else they know. Nonetheless, I'll grant that those are probably the outliers. Single ladies for platonic friendship probably safe to say that for adult ads New haven straight men, any woman pleasant enough to be friends with is also someone they would at least consider, and probably enjoy, having sex with, should the opportunity present.
There's nothing intrinsically sexist or dehumanizing about it, and it's definitely NOT the same as saying the friendship is merely a means to one particular end and that all else is pretense; only that men conceptualize friendship in a way that does not EXCLUDE the possibility of sex.
The obvious question here, it seems to me, is why so many women WOULD think of friendship in a way that excludes the possibility. After all, if you're dealing with someone you presumably like and trust and whose sihgle you enjoy, sharing thoughts, feelings, and ideas, why pllatonic sharing physical intimacy as well somehow poison the well?
That attitude your own attitude, as you describe it single ladies for platonic friendship remarkably negative toward sex in general. Physical intimacy requires a much bigger level of commitment than just hanging out with someone, anyone with half a brain would tell you.
Plus, there are negative social stigmas for being "easy". On top of that, risk for pregnancy and the boatload of complications that come with thatSTDs. To horny Carnlough girls you can't see how physical intimacy would "poison the well" shows how very little you seem to know about relationships.
You know that issue where "EXes can't be friends"?
Adding physical intimacy greatly changes single ladies for platonic friendship nature of the relationship, and this change is often irreversible. Furthermore, should something of that nature happen, you will foe likely receive no help or significantly less help from available support groups.
And lpatonic if it doesn't also lead to bullying, social ostracization, or get in the way of your financial well-being hiring opportunities or harassment at work. Also, I megamates online another issue with only women just seeing men as "wallets" and "protectors". Men also stick up for their male friends in physical altercations.
Men also help each other financially. So why single ladies for platonic friendship it suddenly when the Y chromosome is not there that this has to come with an expectation of sex as payment instead of mutual support? Women also have a lot of the same expectations of female friends. Women travel together in numbers for safety and they also help each other out financially whether paying for things or borrowing each other's clothes. Yet, to date I've never heard of a situation where a woman would use that as emotional blackmail for another woman to grant her sexual favors.
That's seen as not normal and weird, but from a man's perspective that's seen as miami gay chat line entitlement. And, both men and women use each other opposite and same gender connections for networking.
It seems kind of well, silly that you seem single ladies for platonic friendship paint it to where only men can offer networking or financial advantages or somehow a financial advantage is something that only women see ror beneficial from relationships. It goes both ways and every way. That's the nature of human relations period. If honestly I had single ladies for platonic friendship guess, maybe over exposure to sexual stimulus at starting at a young age perhaps conditions them to see all women as friendsip outlets for their sexuality.
There's also the social norm giving great pressure towards men to be hypersexual for fear of catching "the gay" though this makes no sense as gay men tend to be pretty active. Single ladies for platonic friendship as, comparatively, the amount of pressure for women to do the same is in reverse until they get to marriage age. Also, the amount of media hypersexualizing men is nowhere near the amount of media hypersexualizing women.
There was actually a study done on this where they compared how people reacted michael buble wedding date soundtrack images single ladies for platonic friendship men and women.
Men are seen as whole people where as women are seen by their parts. And this reaction occurred in both men and women viewing the images.

I agree with your general observations.

Yet, I differ in the explanations for. Please allow me to explain.
Men and women do enjoy many of the same benefits from various levels of relationship with each. To keep the explanation simple, let us stick with two potential benefits - protection as single ladies for platonic friendship and sex.
Both receive added security and protection from being in close proximity to the other as friends. Similarly, when relationships turn more intimate, both generally find sex pleasurable and gratifying.
As you point out, however, women single ladies for platonic friendship increased costs associated with sex that men do not share.

What is less commonly massage craigslist ri, is that we have the same problem in reverse when considering a friendship driendship exchange. In this case, both men and women are indeed receiving a level of protection from the.
However, if a threat occurs, it is more friwndship that the hottie working at cvs Summerside will physically protect the woman and become hurt.
Generally speaking, his increased physical size will offer her more of a benefit in protection too, than she will provide him in return.

Sure, this is example is simplified of the many variables to help explain it. It is also generalized. So, if one looked hard enough, there could certainly be exceptions.
Nevertheless, that does not change the general premise for most opposite-sex single ladies for platonic friendship When men and women are non-sexual friends, women receive a greater benefit from that friendship and men a greater risk.
This is true, even when BOTH are getting the same needs met meeting maker online because it is of greater benefit to the woman, and more cost to the man. Adding sex more costly for the woman, more rewarding for single ladies for platonic friendship man single ladies for platonic friendship it. Having said that, I can understand the impulse to disregard this notion.
It is advantageous for women to rationalize friendships that benefit them without high costs as "fair" much as men attempt to rationalize no-strings-attached sex as "fair". After all, every individual is ultimately motivated to get what is best for themselves and their group. Nevertheless, the rationalizations are misguided, if not disingenuous. There is a adalt sex com single ladies for platonic friendship what is truly fair and balanced in both risk and reward Thus, after being educated to this point, that only leaves one question that each person has to ask themselves Do they really want to have an equitable relationship and exchange - or would they rather now consciously continue to rationalize their own self-interest as "fair", protect their own ego, and hope an unwitting partner takes the bait?
If it is the latter, so be it Pardon me, but very few friendship relationships between men and women result in men fighting off threats to aldies woman. That analogy is off-base and self-serving.

Let's get real. In other words, if the woman or man provides and expects the same treatment from friends of both sexes, then things are equal. However, if women enjoy additional value from a male friend, then it is a fair trade to provide additionalvalue in return.
Vice versa. Protection and sex were just two examples that are often salient, but certainly not the only ones. If a woman is going to consider you "just a friend"platoniv she wants to be the recipient of everything and not give in return, it's best to cut granny sex Wheeling and run.
Don't get emotionally involved. As long as single ladies for platonic friendship play her games she is not going to stop.
