I’m Giancarlo Mariutto with the LoveFeed. When it comes to communication being in a male/female friendship can be as confusing as listening to Paula Abdul try to string together a coherent thought and just like the weekly genius she just plays on American Idol, platonic relationships can also be filled with mind shredding phrases like, “I hooked up with a friend over the weekend” and the always classic, “Let’s hang out tonight.” And mine personal favorite, “Oh, my God! What are you doing here? Get out, get out get out.” But if you’re not sure if it hammers you, dishing out the double speak then leave it to science to settle the score. According to PsychologyToday.com, of 1450 Match.com members who were surveyed online, 64% said that men are more likely to misinterpret the intimacy for a friendship for something more. Only 25% said women confused the friendship with something else. Damn you science! Always coming out on top with your facts and your calculators. Don’t’ worry ladies if you like hanging out but don’t wanted to be romantic even thought he owns two both sexes, you’re in luck. The study showed that 67% feel women are just better in keeping sex out of a platonic friendship. So if you feel like he’s always reading between the lines just make sure those lines read I’m just not into your idea of hanging out and if there ever comes a time when you feel like the boundaries being crossed again and you don’t know how to react, just remember what Paula Abdul would say.
