  In college it can be difficult for girls to decipher whether a guy wants friendship or is looking for something more. With this age of hooking up, breaking up and making out, nonsexual girl-guy friendships can seem impossible. So, here’s my advice on how to keep a guy as just a friend, whether his feelings for you are genuine or purely physical.  READ MORE
