Can Men and Women be Friends? Is Love Still Alive? How Does He or She Really Feel?

WHUR took a survey asking our listeners what their feelings were about platonic relationships between men and women. We also asked them a few other relationship questions.

Here’s what they had to say.

Here are the results from the survey.

We have concluded that men and women have similar ideas about love and relationships, and love is still alive!

Men and women seem to both enjoy being attached. A common misconception about men is that they would rather be single. In fact, men seem to be happier when in a relationship. A common misconception about women is that they feel unhappy without a man when truthfully women are okay being single. The biggest difference we found between men and women were the infidelity percentages.

Could infidelity be the main reason men and women end up single? Hmmm… just a thought. We would love to know your thoughts. Post your comments below.
