Ask Mom & Spawn: Can Men & Women Ever Be JUST Friends?


“A year ago, I realized that I had feelings for a friend of mine, right around the same time he moved to another city. I can tell he is interested in me too, because of his body language and how well he has always treated me. So, we went out for a while and decided to remain friends because we didn’t have the time to make it work. I still have feelings for him and I’ve noticed that he still cares about me a little too much too. I feel like we are in a standstill, but no one is making the move. Should I just continue to keep things platonic? I’m waiting for him to make a move; and every other guy I continue to date I’ve been comparing them to him.” – Lucy

@CrazyJewishMom: Honey, you already went out. You gotta move on! 

@KateFriedmanSiegel: Yeah, obviously we don’t have all the information here, but something my mom always told me is that people do what they want, and I think that’s true. If two people are in love, they “make it work” no matter what: living in different countries, dealing with families that hate each other, staying connected with one member of the couple living in a submarine with limited access to phone and wifi. Point being, if two people really want to be together, they make it happen.

@CrazyJewishMom: Listen, let’s cut the touchy feely crap. He’s probably not that into you. Move on. And if you can’t without knowing for sure? TALK TO HIM. Tell him how you feel, get your answer, and MOVE. ON. 

@KateFriedmanSiegel:  Yeah, as someone who wasted a LOT of time obsessing about a guy who just didn’t like me that much, I think you need to find a way to move on.
