Sex & the Single Woman: Reverse of Fortune

Last fall one of my friends hooked up with a guy she barely knew. They hit it off immediately, although nothing romantic ever came of it.


But, something platonic did come out of the situation. Something very platonic. The two talk all of the time and see each other a couple of nights a week, despite the fact that he has a girlfriend.

This unconventional start of their relationship makes me wonder: can a good friendship really bloom from a one-night stand?

It’s hard for me to think that with potentially unresolved feelings from at least one party that a genuine friendship can form. But I’ve talked to her and at least on her side, all seems well.

What do you think–is it possible to become good friends with your one night stand?
