1.sometimes when a man wants a women yet he knows she is grossed out/creeped out/not attracted to him he will attempt to get close to her claiming to be merely a "platonic friend".

2.when a women wants to be gentle to a man and not go out with him she may use a phrase similar to " I jsut want to be a platonic friend"
1. Chris wanted Kristen but knew he could never have her so he claimed he just wanted to be a platonic friend

2. Jodie Foster turned down John Hinckley by saying she just wanted to be his platonic friend.

A very close male friend that a woman has. Their relationship is strictly "just friends" and usually never involves anything sexual. Men do not have platonic friends, just simply women they haven't fucked yet.
Somewhere along the way, John made a wrong turn and slipped into the friends zone by not making a sexual move on Cindy.

Joe: "Do you know what a platonic friend is to a woman?"

Max: "No"

Joe: "A dick in a glass case. In case of an emergency, BREAK GLASS"

A very very very close friend of the opposite sex. A woman is a man's platonic friend if she's his best friend (or a very close friend of his), but nothing more.

And yes, contrary to what's been said earlier, men CAN have platonic friends, just like women.
person1: Ashley and Brandon are so close to each other, they spend all of their time together. I'm sure they're dating!

Person2: Not necessarily, i asked Ashley yesterday and she told me that there was nothing between them, they're just platonic friends.

A nice way for a woman to say he is a dick in a glass jar waiting to be busted open at any ginen moment...
Mandy dates Charlie and clams Bob to be her platonic friend, however if Charlie steps out of lines one more time Mandy will bust open her dick in a glass jar!
