Check out the first in our brand new series of videos that Lisa and I did with CatholicMatch.com. Here is the introduction to the first video on the question of male and female friendships by CatholicMatch.com editor, Robyn Lee.
This past weekend I was chatting with one of my girlfriends about how excited I was to see one of my guy friends from high school. Her response surprised me, “I don’t believe women and men can be friends.”
I was taken aback at first and responded defensively: “I guess it depends what you mean by ‘friends.'” Then we debated about what level of friendship men and women can enter into without having romantic feelings for each other. I’ve always thought that I could be casual friends with guys. But I knew if I had an intimate friendship with that same guy I would eventually fall in love with him. I‘ve had this debate so many times before. Why does this question always intrigue us?
To answer this question, check out this video by Dr. Gregory Popcak and his wife, Lisa. I was fascinated about the way they talked about the differences between men and women. Greg and Lisa answer this captivating question in a way that I have never considered before. I suspect it may surprise you as well.
