Although some have fallen in their efforts to walk the narrow line between friendship and romance in this area, I believe guys and girls can have life-enriching, non-romantic friendships. Actually, it's important that we do. Paul the apostle instructs Timothy to treat younger woman "As sisters with absolute purity" (1 Timothy 5:2) Paul assumes that Timothy interacts with woman daily, and because of this assumption, he encourages Timothy to pursue a Godly and pure attitude. We should follow and pursue these things as well. Guy-girl friendships can be pure, inspiring and educational. While interacting with male friends I've gained information on their perspective on life, learning valuable things I would have missed in my narrow minded female view.
