Random Cool Video: ‘Just Friends’

Random Cool Video: 'Just Friends'

There have been loads of psychological and other studies related to the ability (or inability) of men and women to be ‘just friends’. This one has as part of its’ conclusion:

Of course platonic friendships are possible as these three example show but we all know they get complicated when physical attraction and lack of transparency comes into the picture. They also get complicated when people are in a committed relationship with someone else.

Most of the stuff I have read is pretty non-committal – platonic relationships CAN happen, but can also easily get messy if one person has feelings and the other doesn’t. Yeah … thanks for that.

This video is interesting in the way it tells the story – it takes place at a college library and therefore has a rather limited breadth of sampling … with a focus somewhat outside of the mainstream thought on relationships. I have little doubt that there was editing, but it is humorous in the thesis: all of the men they talked to said ‘no’, all of the women said ‘yes’. But when pressed, the women had some other thoughts, and the men expanded on theirs … until it all converged!

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
