    I believe so. As with any friendship survival and longevity, it takes maturity and mutual respect.
    I have several male friends, strictly platonic. Each friendship has lasted between 10 to 30 years, thru marriages & divorces, children & grandchildren, tragedies and successes.

    When did Steve Harvey become the Relationship Specialist? Was it marriage #1, #2, or #3, that gave him that status? LOL

    I've had many men as platonic friends. Some for decades. I do think that when it all boils down, it is the woman that keeps the relationship platonic, and the man that respects that.

    Then there are guys (like Steve Harvey) cxxx_hounds that can never see a woman in any other way. Men like that, you cannot really be friends with. They are patient, cunning, and fixated on one thing only.

    Steve Harvey just want to say the dumbest thing he can think of. Of course men and women can be friends.

    If Sleaze Harvey was around during the time Yashawahsi was murdered by the Romans he'd be front and center with his hands out like "I have no god but unto Caesar Pilate "
