Article Title: Beware the man with no female friends
This interesting article named ‘Beware the man with no female friends’ makes the point that a platonic male female friendship shows that the man is mature and views women as more than just his mother or a partner/potential partner. The article starts by saying that there are various criteria women use to judge the potential partner and there are many discreet ways of doing this.The author’s own chief criterion has always been about whether or not he has any female friends, jut friends and not women he is hoping to one day wear down to date or sleep with.
Though most Americans were wary of male-female interactions, with nearly two-thirds saying workers should take “extra caution” around members of the opposite.This belief is wrong and needs to be changed. The article concludes with the suggestion that we need men and women to seek out and maintain these friendships more than ever, not draw ridiculous lines in the sand that they promise never, ever to cross.
