      That "Boyfriend Snuff Box" video was funny. I remember hearing about a little experiment in which an attactive woman confederate sat alone and inviting at a bar. When men approached her, she had various things to say to reject the guy. Most rejections didn't work except for one, that is, talking about her boyfriend (or husband) and conveying contentment with her relationship in addition to not being interested in other guys, including the one flirting with her. I suppose the guys assumed the woman was just playing hard to get until another guy was brought into the picture.

    What are the numbers with that Salon article? What? Eighty (80) percent of males have only plutonic relationships with females, by stark contrast, a whopping 95 percent of women have strictly plutonic relationships with the opposite sex. Also, what if the female or male is gay/lesbian? Those relationships are obviously plutonic. Can a lesbian have a plutonic relationship with a female that she is attracted to? Does anyone have access to the original research paper? I bet if the female is married and is good friends with wife of the male (or the male is friends with husband) that may make a difference.

    And isn't putting "just friends" in quotations downplaying the importance of friendship?

      Perhaps...I had meant to allude to that being a common phrase used to denote friendship between the sexes, rather than friendships between people of the same gender, rather than to downplay the importance of friendship. Whether such delineation is necessary is part of the conversation:)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
