Are women deliberately having a best male friend still up for dating a man?

What does that mean? How do someone's friends determine who she wants to date?

[@8344,ScissorhandsFingeredMe] maybe she's afraid of further connection and thus sticks with friendship.

I´m not sure if I understood your question.
Even so...

Good friends and best friends of either gender are blessings of life.

Good friends, even if not always personal friends of your partner, are always friends of the relationship. As they wish you the best happiness and respect your choices.

Friendzoned "orbiters", men or women, are another kind of fish. Opportunistic ones.
No place for them in a healthy loving team.

[@956065,scooogy] That "meal" was the last of my worries.
My Ex wife (Ex since about 19 years ago) never found out from which side to held a pan.
But I rised THREE daughters…

Do you know the related anecdote from Winston Churchill?

[@817347,CharlieZ] who hopefully showed her how to hold a pan, right? :P

[@956065,scooogy] Perhaps her (my ex´s one) actual husband did, though I doubt about.
My daughters had not a very close connection with their mom, so I rised them as a "single father".
AND, of course, I was also the one who cooked for them.

Yes, absolutely. A best male friend is not always a woman's final destination. Sometimes for example, she will have a best male friend whom she knows is gay and is absolutely not interested in her sexually. To him she may be friends because he enables her to speak with a male who can stay focused in her mind and not on her body.

She may ask her 'best male friend' out on a date to act as a decoy for her and not be harassed by other men whom are intent on 'hitting' on her.

Dating a different man and not simply hanging out with her 'best male friend' then serves other aspects of her needs, such as her need to experience intimacy with a heterosexual male.

If she does not have a straight male friend in her life, she can at least pretend that she does to her girlfriends by showing up to the dance with her 'best male friend' who may pose no threat nor obligation to her nor her female friends.[/c]
