Tyler and Cabe had been friends for years when she finally acknowledged her feelings for him. Do you think it's possible for men and women to be "just friends" for so long, and why do you think Tyler and Cabe never took their friendship to the next level before now?

I do think it is possible. I have many men friends and have for years.A good friendship is hard      

to find and sometimes you do not want to lose what you you have so you do not try to pursue  a

Relationship  

I have male friends as well, although I must say I keep stronger boundaries in place than Tyler and Cabe did!

It can be. They probably didn't go to the next level because they probably really didn't know how the other truly felt.

Yep. I think neither of them was willing to be the one to put themselves out there and risk rejection and the loss of their friendship.

I think it's possible for a man and woman to just be friends.  I think Tyler and Cable were both afraid it would ruin their friendship.

I think it's possible as well. Especially if both people value the friendship so highly.

Been there, done it, got the t-shirt, and the free happy meal, when it comes to women friends. I see friendship  as the best way to form a basis for a marital relationship. Now you know why I got married. I only have four friends (by special definition) in the world. My wife is the only woman in the group. I have many women friends (general definition), academic colleagues, writing partners, mentors, and people I like to chat with, yet those relationships will never likely go to romance, because they are based on a different commitment. That is why Cabe and Tyler had trouble with their signals, at first. They tried to move from a relationship based on mutual interest or activity toward one based on an unconditional commitment.

"Been there, done it, got the t-shirt, and the free happy meal, when it comes to women friends."
I love that opening!! I believe women and men can be friends, but you hit the nail on the head. It's the level of commitment and how it progresses. I think when guys and girls are "just" friends, they have to make sure there are boundaries in place to keep the lines from blurring.
