Is it really possible to be friends with the opposite sex?
Believe it or not, we think it is. Otherwise, how would our relationship work for this podcast?
In this week’s episode, we look at society’s expectations for our friendships based on gender stereotypes. We also tackle the issue of being attracted to your opposite-sex friends.
- A look at the differences in how men and women see their opposite-sex friends.
- Changing perspectives on being friends with the opposite sex.
- Gender as a social construct and not a binary.
- How to focus less on biology and more on human connections.
- Tips for managing being friends with the opposite sex and your S.O.
- Moving on after you acknowledge (at least to yourself) that there is some level of attraction.
- What it’s like to have a bestie of the opposite sex.
It’s a little awkward with the Do Nows this week. Do you really need to go on a quest to be friends with the opposite sex? Does it really matter. We encourage you to look at your list of friends and see if there are some experiences and people you want to connect with. No matter who you connect with, consider joining a local organization where you can meet new people.
This week’s listener question tackles the issue of trying to explain to your parents that you just aren’t interested in your opposite-sex bestie.
