Can Men and Women Be ‘Just Friends?’


This short YouTube video (produced by independent filmmakers Jesse Budd and Patrick Romero) is about as effective at discussing the topic of male-female “friendships” as the 1989 film When Harry Met Sally:

My daughter Camille turned 13 over Christmas break, and I’m in the process of trying to raise her to understand dating, friendships, and guys in general.  Although she’s far from dating age (that’s about 35 now, right?), I think this video might be a fun discussion starter tonight. 

Plus, there’s no “I’ll have what she’s having” scene.
