3. What kind of behaviors should be forbid with opposite sex friendship?

I also wonder how I should treat my female friends. Theoretically, I should treat them as my male friends, right? But it's very dangerous if I really do so. Too much body contact, sex-related language, checking on porn websites, etc. are all on the forbidden list. Simply speaking, a guy shouldn't be a "guy" if he is with a female friend.

A question for our female: How would you feel if a male friend is treating you like a "guy"? Would you be happy that he is honestly real to you, or would you feel unhappy and offended? :?
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
