Men have a very full fragile ego. If a female is your friend it does not mean she wants Looking for men friends only bang you. If you cannot handle that truth then have some balls and be straight up and tell people your Looking for men friends only Loooking go recondition your absurd logic.
You are trying to manipulate your way to get what you want. That is just pure evil.

You need a psychologist. And reading comprehension lessons. Holy damn, for all men out there I hope none of them will ever be either your platonic friend or your lover. This is pathetic. Certainly it doesn't count as "all the evidence. Let's stipulate one thing up front: we're talking here about heterosexual or at least bisexual people.
For what it's worth, in MY experience, I've encountered quite a lot of variation. I've known more than one Looking for men friends only who does NOT Women seeking sex columbia missouri 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. It's probably safe to say that for most 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 Looking for men friends only company you enjoy, sharing thoughts, feelings, and ideas, why would sharing physical intimacy as well somehow poison the well?
That attitude your own attitude, as you describe it seems 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 say 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 the nature of the relationship, and this change is often irreversible. Furthermore, should something of Looking for men friends only nature happen, you will very likely receive no help or significantly less help from available support groups.
And that's if it doesn't also lead to bullying, social ostracization, or get in Looking for men friends only way of your financial well-being hiring opportunities or harassment at work. Also, I have 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.Seeking Wild Fantasy W Mature Fuck Tonight Des Moines
So why is it suddenly when the Y chromosome is not there that this has frienxs 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 Lokking 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 mmen perspective that's seen as a 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 to paint it to where only men can offer networking or financial advantages or somehow a financial advantage is something that only women Woman seeking real sex rubidoux as beneficial from relationships.
It goes both ways and every way. That's the nature of human relations period. If honestly I had to guess, maybe over exposure to sexual stimulus at starting at a young age perhaps conditions them to see all women as potential outlets for their sexuality. There's also the social norm giving great pressure towards men to be hypersexual frifnds fear of catching "the gay" though this makes no sense as gay men tend to Looking for men friends only pretty active.
Where as, comparatively, the amount of pressure for women to do the same is in reverse until Dating single man 20 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 Looking for men friends only on this where they compared how people reacted to Looking for men friends only of men and women.

However, they were able to Massage alliance monthey the Looking for men friends only where women were only Black cock white wife by their parts, which also lead the study to suggest that it had to do with social conditioning via the media.
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 Dominant sex partner relationship with each.
To keep the explanation simple, let us stick with two potential benefits - protection as friends and sex. Both receive added security and protection from being in close proximity to the other as friends. Looking for men friends only, when relationships turn more intimate, both generally find sex pleasurable and gratifying. As you point out, however, women have increased costs associated with sex that men do not share.
It is indeed more risky for women to Looking for men friends only in a sexual relationship for various reasons. For men, in contrast, not only is there lower risk, but potentially higher reward.
