Platonic relationships often don't work because people become hellbent on ending them, on the assumption that they don't work, or because they are just jealous.

1. The tendency of women to develop close friendships with their male acquaintances, thereby pre-emptively eliminating any possibility of a romantic relationship, the result of which is to remove the poor schmuck's heart and shred it

2. The process by which attractive and otherwise eligible women, when faced by proffered declarations of romantic interest by a male acquaintance, destroy the ego and spirit of said acquaintance by declaring that they only want to be "friends."
Typical response from a female to a male in a platonic relationship:

"I have feelings for you too, I don't want to do anything that could jeopardize our friendship. You're like a brother to me."
