Is it Possible?

....to ask someone if they want to be friends and hang out sometime,if person is opposite sex, without said person assuming you want more than strictly platonic? A coworker assumed I only wanted to hang out because I was interested in being FWB! I'm pissed off right now!

Of course it’s possible! It all starts with respect and communication without assumptions. In my experiences I have FWBs and platonic friends I who get along with just fine. He’s kinda of an selfish asshole in my opinion. I wouldn’t hang out with him if you still feel uncomfortable.

I have no intention of hanging out with him, now. He asked what I'm looking for and when I told him,friendship, he was like, "Oh, well than I guess we can't hang because I'm only looking for FWB right now. Sorry." And I was like why did you ever assume I was interested in more than that to begin with? This kind of pisses me off and he just said well 👋 Bye then have a great day

Ugh! Yeah definitely communicate exactly what you both want. It’s much easier if one or both of you are already taken. One of my greatest friends is an awesome guy who is married and has kids. We met through my old job.

This co-worker knew from day 1 that I'm married and still chose to have the wrong idea

Ugh, then that’s completely on him, but I guess in this day and age you have to specifically outline what you are and are not up for 🥲.

It is possible as long as it's made clear from. The beginning so either party understands. Because unfortunately, on even on both sides, it can be misconstrued, just based on social "norms".

It's something that should be addressed as soon as you have a conversation about that idea . But don't be surprised if someone gets real feeling for the other person . Yes it's all possible.
