Head to head: Can straight men and women really be 'just friends'?


The first things you do when you break up with someone are defriend them on Facebook, delete their number from your phone, and delete their e-mails. Basically, cut off all ties.

But could you be friends with an ex? Without “going back there”? Or is there too much history?

How about just friends with someone of the opposite sex that you don’t find sexually attractive? Just someone you have similar interests with but nothing else. Until you go out and get drunk and wake up next to each other. Awkward.

At Watsons Bay Hotel our most lovable Mamamia personalities grabbed a beer to figure out the solution. (P.S. Rob Mills is happy to be friends with anyone.)
