Reader Poll

Ah, I think it's time again for my ridiculous weekly reader polls. I know this week's question is worryingly out of the blue so I think a bit of an explanation is required. I was watching the anime Planetes (in High Def no less) episode 4 or 5, when suddenly this question cropped up.

Throughout the years I've heard this question asked again and again in real life, on TV, in movies and now in an anime! So, let's settle this once and for all; what do you guys think?

Mynn, are you trying to start a public debate of some sort? Coz with this question you've posed many people will have many facets of answers and invariably we will have to base it on the values of Islam. So shall we invite Ustazah KKL to answer please?

p.s. Dunno why but today your name, Mynn, triggered my brain cells to recall my Anatomy lecturer, a Burmese, called Myn Myn San. A tall, slender middle aged lady and very motherly. Wonder how she is today. She was a colleague of Prof Syed Wafa, whom Hiyoshi has highlighted in his blog, also an anat lect of mine!

p.s. An extrapolation of your poll question: can a man and woman be just friends on the internet only? i.e. just correspond in emails? And what if both are married??

the question was in the movie "When Harry met Sally" right? it's been ages since i last saw that movie.
to be honest, in asking that question, i was already half-sure what certain readers of the blog would answer but, i still posed the question and i purposefully limited to answers to only yes/no. originally i wanted to put "i don't know" as a 3rd option.

i kinda predicted your response DITH but i have to say, didnt expect your slant: "internet", "married", "email"

all answers are acceptable, just want to see what the readers think. i'll give my opinion right at the end
;)

i've met a Min before, and she was my SHO while I was working as a HO in Wales. She's Sarawakian. It was SUCH a coincidence and when the consultant called "min" we both answered back ... it was quite funny. sigh. good old times in Wales.

in this hospital, there's burmese friend of mine called "Win" or "Wyn" (not sure what the spelling is). and people ALWAYS get our names interchanged, to my utmost annoyance. grr.

According to the movie..no..

I think that once there is an attraction to someone it nevers goes completely away....so I would say no.

YES, if you know where to draw the line. Problem is, MANY dont seem to know just that.

Dyanna said...

This is a very subjective questions and there is no straight forward answer. But I think I can say YES.
