Then you would be wrong..

One of my best friends is a younger woman who is nice looking, but no sexual attraction between us... and I have know her for about 12 years now...

Similarly, I have some examples of long standing friendships with women, some considerably younger, in which the relationships are exactly that, simply friendship. No interest in contemplating or fantasizing about a sexual relationship. In other cases, there definitely is a sexual attraction. Bottom line: both situations can peacefully co-exist.

in my younger days i totally thought it was possible to have platonic relationships w/ boys...most of my closest friends were boys (high school/college) but it later turned out that wasn't their p.o.v. on the subject and i'm sad that we're not all as great of friends as we could have been if that wasn't the case...

I think there are 2 factors here- an attractive woman probably shouldn't expect a young man who isn't firmly atached to some other attractive woman to not be at least hopeful of boosting some sex from her.

An older man may easily have other goals, provided that he is 1) gay or 2) getting all the sex he can handle from his wife or girlfriend or 3) scared of the financial and emotional hit of annoying his wife by sleeping with you. Otherwise, if you are pretty or sexy, he wants to sleep with you even though he may not be very strong in pushing that goal.

I tried to see if one can have platonic relationships with men.....for me, that was never the case....either sooner or later, curiosity killed the cat.
Chemistry is a mysterious thing.....when it exists between two people....watch out! I have dated really attractive men and so-so ones.....but the ones with that strange chemistry, regardless of looks....I will never forget!
Now in my 30's....I'd rather have the chemistry and stability rather than those pretty boys!
