― I was recently watching an episode of Wendy Williams and she posed the question: can men and women be friends? I immediately thought: yes thinking of all my male relationships. Then I realized wait, all my male friends are either married or in committed relationships. Then I realized she meant can either sex be friends if a.) one is single and the other is not or b.) if both parties are single. ∙ Hmmm. I don't know. ∙ Take for example exhibit A my male and former best friend, C. [...].
